Chiang Mai Countryside Adventures

Get away from the tourist crowds and discover the incredible countryside that surrounds Chiang Mai!

With your local guide leading the way, you’ll explore quiet villages, taste incredible local food and experience the traditions of rural Thailand. 

Start at the iconic Tha Phae Gate, taking time to snap some photos of your stylish Vespas before setting off on our countryside tour! Sit back and enjoy the views as your driver navigates the winding lanes and idyllic backroads. Pull over for a visit to a farm house where you will learn about the crops grown in this area and the traditional techniques used by farmers. 

Hop back on to the Vespas and continue to a one-of-a-kind cafe. More than just selling coffee and juices, this cafe is also home to an elephant conservation project. You’ll come nose-to-trunk with these gentle giants, a unique opportunity to interact with healthy, happy elephants in their natural environment. 

Please note, on Monday’s the elephant sanctuaries in Chiang Mai countryside are closed. For tours on Mondays, we will instead visit a workshop making recycled products out of elephant dung.  

Your Chiang Mai Vespa tour continues with a scenic ride to tropical flower gardens, a project that supports the ethnic minority groups of Thailand. After a short stroll among the lush landscapes, sit down for a delicious lunch of local dishes.

The adventure is not over yet! After lunch, continue along another beautiful road as we make our way to a hilltop Buddhist temple. Take a stroll around this temple, mingling with local worshippers and soak up the panoramic views of Chiang Mai from a vantage point few tourists know about.  It’s then back onto the Vespas for one last exhilarating ride as we coast back downhill to the city center.
