Need a quickie intro to the city? Toss aside your guidebook and instead get the Chiang Mai scoop straight from those who know it best: the locals who live here! This introductory city tour will give you an overview of Chiang Mai plus handy info for your visit, straight from the mouths of locals – so if you want to make the most of your time in town, make this the first thing you do!
Join us for an orientation tour starting at the Suriwong Book Center on Sridonchai Road. From there, we’ll take a walk along the Night Bazaar, past Anusarn Market, where you’ll see local life alive early night!
We’ll also pass by the house of the Chiang Mai governor, before continuing on to Naowarat Bridge, the first bridge across the Maeping River. We’ll walk and talk along the riverside during sunset — the perfect time to take in the vibe of Chiang Mai!
We’ll then chill out at the Iron Bridge (we call it “Khualek”), which is a good spot to relax — it’s also a spot featured in many Thai films as a way to identify Chiang Mai.
Finally, we’ll stop at a great café near the bridge, where you can ask all your burning questions about Chiang Mai and get the #localsknow tips you need to know. Oh, and if you like homemade ice cream, we can also show you the hidden gems just around the corner!
Think of it as a city introduction tour, travellers’ meet-up, and info desk all rolled into one — get the tips you need to know from those who are in-the-know, then kick back and relax with some new friends in a new city. There’s no better way to tap into local life in Chiang Mai!
