Half Day Mae Kok Tour from Chiang Rai | Description
Immerse yourself in the fascinating culture of Northern Thailand and explore the beautiful terrain of this unique landscape on our unique Mae Kok Life tour!
Our half day tour, which can be undertaken either in the morning or afternoon to suit you, begins with an exciting trip down the scenic Kok River, on board a traditional Thai long-tail boat. As we lazily cruise along the water way, we will take in the sights of the countryside, and learn a little about the land that surrounds us.
After an hour, our boat will stop at Baan Ruam Mit village, home of the Karen long neck tribe; a fascinating people with the unique tradition of extending their necks with rings. From here, we will climb aboard our next method of transport, this time, your very own elephant! Few experiences can rival a trek through the jungle, bobbing gently on the broad back of one of these gentle creatures. After an exploration of the jungle and a chance to spot some of the wildlife that reside within, we return to the village and are given the opportunity to explore it on foot and get better acquainted with the locals.
To conclude our fun-filled tour, we then sail once again down the river, making one final stop at the Chiang Rai Meditation Center and a cave, sacred to local monks.
Our tour encompasses the best of the Chiang Rai region and gives you the chance to really develop an understanding of the traditional way of life; away from the buzz of the towns and cities.
