At 8:00am, we pick you up at your hotel in Chiang Mai and take your bike for our trip. We then go to Lamphun, or Haripunchai as it once was called, on our own bikes. This region was originally ruled by legendary Mon Queen Chama Thewi and precedes Chiang Mai by 700 years. Eventually overcome by King Meng Rai in the 13th century, Lamphun remained a stronghold with independence of culture and influence. We will ride through quiet country roads and farmland, experience the Lanna way of life. Our ride takes us further into abundant orchards with a plethora of seasonal fruit including longans, lychee, mangos, bananas, guavas, coconuts, jackfruit, durian and dragon fruits, among many others. As we pass through small rural villages and crisscross the tranquil Ping River to encounter smiling faces and a friendly, relaxed atmosphere. We’ll take the time to stop often to sample the local delights on offer at road-side stalls and markets. When we arrive at historical Lamphun, we will cycle around the ancient city walls and stop to see the oldest and holiest stupa in Thailand built in 1044 – Wat Phra That Hariphunchai. After that, we have lunch with local Lanna cuisine in a riverside restaurant. In the afternoon, we take time to explore Lamphun’s lively markets where the fresh fruit from the orchards we through will be on offer. Finally, we ride back to Chiang Mai. End trip at your hotel around 5:00pm.
