T1038 Charming Chiang Rai With Chiang Rai Elephant Valley
Price From : 2,000 - 8,600 Baht
Spend an hour or two with some exceptionally happy elephants at Chiang Rai's Elephant Valley. Spend the rest of the day visiting some of the special highlights the area around Chiang Rai has to offer.
You will be picked up early to embark on this special one day tour to Chiang Rai. We will depart the city of Chiang Mai and head north over the mountains to Chiang Rai. On route we will take an early morning coffee break at Mae Kha Jan Hot Springs to take a break from the driving. The driving will continue for a further while as we approach our first main stop of the day, Elephant Valley Chiang Rai. On arrival at Elephant Valley you will be handed over into the hands of the knowledgeable staff at this special elephant sanctuary where you will be informed about the lives of elephants in Thailand and about the elephants residing at this small sanctuary. This sanctuary offers exceptionally high elephant welfare standards and you will be able to observe and spend time with these splendid animals in a very natural habitat. After The elephant sanctuary we will visit the now very famous Wat Rong Khun (White Temple) before proceeding to Chiang Rai to take our lunch by the Kok River. After lunch we will head out of town to visit Wat Rong Sear Tean (Blue Temple) and then on to Baan Dam (Black House museum). This will be our final stop of the day unless you want to take the option to visit the Long Neck village where you will see this amazing ethnic Karen group from Burma. After the tour you will be transferred back to your Chiang Mai hotel (or we can drop off at a Chiang Rai hotel or at Chiang Rai airport)
