Chiang Mai : Thailand
Full Day Bike Tour from Chiang Mai, Thailand
Spend a day out cycling the Chiang Mai Countryside. The bicycle tour starts with a train ride from Chiang Mai to Lamphun. Visit some historical temples in this ancient capital before biking back to Chiang Mai through the countryside and forested foothills.
This bike tour is an easy ride on back roads and country lanes. While the ride is mostly flat there is a short section with a few rolling hills.
The tropical sun can be quite fierce, so we recommend you use some sun block or, if you prefer a natural option, sun sleeves for your arms and Buff headwear for your neck.
Men and Woman need to cover their shoulders to enter temples and mosques. Woman need to cover their knees as well, so If you like to wear shorts when riding, we recommend bringing a sarong to wear for entering a temple or mosque.
