Breakfast at hotel
This morning, we visit 101 Tea Plantation, which focuses mainly on producing and selling various kinds of tea. The most popular is Mae Salong tea; Assam tea, Ching Ching No. 12. Enjoy your tea whilst admiring the tea plantation and stunning mountain backdrop.
After the visit, you will have a beautiful 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. Arrive in Chiang Rai and after a local lunch (payable locally) we visit two unique and very different sites.
Firstly, the Black House (Ban Dum), a unique creation of national artist, Thawan Duchanee. Part art studio, part museum, part home, Baan Dam is an eclectic mix of traditional northern Thai buildings interspersed with some outlandish modern designs.
Continue to your hotel in Chiang Rai and check in.
