Meet your private guide at your hotel lobby in the morning for a transfer to the Chiang Mai railway station, where you’ll board a local train for Lamphun, located a 30-minute ride away.

A driver awaits your arrival in this ancient city of northern Thailand, whose temples you’ll explore on a private sightseeing tour with your guide. Visit Wat Phra Yen, where you’ll find four Buddha statues within a chedi (stupa). Make your way to the venerated Wat Phra That Hariphunchai, dating back to the Mon kingdom of the 11th or 12th century.

Stroll to a nearby market where you’ll find OTOP (One Tambon One Product) items for sale — made locally in village communities. For lunch, enjoy a bowl of khao soi, a Thai noodle dish in a curry sauce with coconut milk.

Stop at a museum to see textiles made by Lamphun’s inhabitants — mostly descendants of the Tai Yong, an ethnic group from northern Burma (Myanmar). Continue on to another Lumphun market for a snack of local specialties before a visit to Wat Chama Thewi (Wat Kukut), one of the oldest religious structures in Lamphun. Once you spot multiple standing Buddhas peeking from the niches of the temple’s tall chedi, hop back in your private vehicle for the drive back to Chiang Mai.

Along the way, you’ll make a final stop at a longan plantation for a tasting of longan wine, made from lam yai, a lychee-type fruit. Then relax with views of the Ping River before drop-off at your hotel.
