Chiang Mai, Thailand
Basically it provided a ride up the mountain to get to the Temple we wanted to see. The Tour guide was not too informative about the temple, he was more interested in playing on his iPad. We asked for a rest room and were walked another 15 minutes to a Jade shop below the Temple and a chance for a demonstration - We do not like being taken to commercial establishments under the guise of a tour or demonstration. Chaing Mai City - we were taken to 2-more temples, at both of these we were on our own, the tour guide did not go with us. I think we found the one Thai person who does not smile and he was not very personable, not tour guide material. We cut our tour short as we had enough Mr. 'No-personality - play on his iPad'.
It was a full day lots of riding in the bus, almost 12 hours door to door. The tour guide was nice, personable and informative. The highlight was the elephant ride but the stop for lunch at the farm was good too. The Ox cart ride was a new 1st time experience, but a bit lame. The water falls was a good healthy walk but worth it.
