Itinerary:
Meals: none
Start of your Chiang Mai Silver Tour by samlor. First of all we will take you to Wat Loi Kroh, a seldom-visited temple. We continue on Kamphaeng Din road. Kamphaeng Din literally means "earthen wall". Chiang Mai used to have an outer city wall on the east and south of the city. Kamphaeng Din road follows this outer city wall and moat. Parts of the wall are still visible.
Wat Nantharam and the Silver Quarter
We arrive at the Pradtoo Korm Market. This market comes alive in the afternoon but is also worth a visit in the morning. Let's take a stroll through the market before we get in our samlors to continue to Wat Nantharam, the center of lacquer ware. Here we spend some time and learn about lacquer ware. Continue to Wat Muen San, which has an interesting history and some stunning silver decorations. Wualai is the traditional silver area of Chiang Mai. We will also visit a workshop where silver jewellery and decorations are being handmade. Let's continue to the opulent Wat Sri Suphan with its silver wihan. Then it's back to the Old City.
Terracotta and Chiang Mai Gate Market
We cross the moat at the Suan Prung Gate into the Old City and head for Ban Phor Liang Meun's Terra Cotta Arts, a garden with remarkable statues. Next destination is the Chiang Mai Gate Market, which is one of Chiang Mai's most popular markets. We taste some of the local delicacies before we head for the last stop: the quiet Burmese temple Wat Sai Moon. Here we meet up with one of the Burmese monks for a chat before we finally head for our end destination which is Thapae Gate where we will arrive at around 1230. It is the end of your samlor tour.
