Mae Kampong Eco Tour - Full Day
You will be picked up at 08:30. Get a taste of rural life with a full day trip to Mae Kampong. Drive away from the busy streets of Chiang Mai and into the rolling hills of north Thailand.
On the way to the village, stop at a local market to pick up fresh ingredients that will later be used to prepare lunch. Spend time walking around the market, browsing the stalls and seeking out some of the more exotic items on offer.
Upon reaching Mae Kampong, meet with some of the village residents. Take a light hike through the surroundings and explore plantations growing tea and coffee, two of the village’s main crops. Learn about how the tea leaves and java beans are grown, harvested and distributed for sale. Having worked up an appetite, return to the centre of Mae Kampong and enjoy a home-cooked meal.
Then relax with a Thai massage, letting the tranquil setting and traditional techniques refresh the body and mind. With this added boost of energy, resume the exploration of Mae Kampong with a walk through the village’s laneways. Witness locals fermenting tea leaves, which will later be used for cooking, and see other traditional practices. This walk also provides a closer look at the village’s traditional houses and a chance to chit-chat with the friendly residents.
With a better understanding of rural lifestyles say farewell to the hosts from Mae Kampong and drive back to Chiang Mai. Arrive in the city early this evening. (L)
