TOUR DESCRIPTION

As a visitor to Thailand taking a tuk tuk ride is got to be on everyones bucket list! But how about driving your own tuk tuk? Wouldn’t that be absolutely awesome!!! Now you can with the Chiang Mai based Tuk Tuk Tours. On this day you will drive your own tuk tuk (YES! Drive it yourself) on the road and through the hills in the stunning Mae Wang area. The tuk tuk experience will begin with your pick up from your Chiang Mai accommodation and driven out to the Tuk Tuk Tours driver training ground at Mae Wang. Your guide will give you a briefing of the days activities before introducing you to the Tuk Tuks! You are unlikely to have any experience driving a tuk tuk before so the guide will teach you the basics before you can get in the drivers seat yourself. You will be encouraged to drive around the training ground until you feel comfortable. When everyone is feeling ready it will be time to hit the road! The roads in the Mae Wang area are quiet, picturesque and wind their way through the hills and small villages, ideal for first timer to get accustomed to their little machines whilst enjoying the attractive scenery. Our first stop of the day will be at a local shrine and temple where we can climb to the pagoda and enjoy the stunning views over the Mae Wang valley. The drive will continue via a small local temple and then onto the elephant camp. The day will not all be about driving your tuk tuk as we will also be spending a couple of hours at one of the areas most ethical elephant camps. Before meeting the elephants you will be served a tasty and filling lunch before being introduced to the happy elephants. At this camp you will be able to get up close and feed these lovely animals before walking them to the river for their bath. Feel free to get involved with their bath time and bring your swim suit! After our elephant activities it will be time to try your hand at some bamboo rafting. You will get to take an adventurous ride on simple bamboo rafts. Sit back and enjoy the scenery go by or pick up a pole and help the rafting pilot guide the bamboo raft down the Win River. After our bamboo rafting activities it will be time board our tuk tuks again as we take to the road for our drive to back to tuk tuk HQ. Here at the end of the day it will be time to say goodbye to the tuk tuks and you will be transported back to your Chiang Mai accommodation.
