Chiang Mai Local Lifestyle Tour incl. Wiang Kum Kam - Chiang Mai Thailand
Chiang Mai Sightseeing
Chiang Mai Local Lifestyle Tour incl. Wiang Kum Kam, Immediately to the south of Chiangmai, and just beyond where the Super Highway crosses the River Ping, lies another city. It is the ancient, fortified township of Wiang Kum Kam. It is quiet, peaceful and often overlooked as not too many visitors go there. That is one of the reasons I enjoy exploring Wiang Kum Kam there is a solitude and sense of history which is inescapable. Yet the normal hustle and bustle of Thai life surrounds the area. Why is this? The answer is that up until comparatively recently, Wiang Kum Kam did not exist as far as the eye is concerned.
Starting experience a city life style by offering alms to Buddhist monks at Wat Srisodain the early morning. Return to your hotel for breakfast. Depart by car to the newly discovered the ruin of ancient city of Wiang Kum Kam. Take a horse drawn carriage to tour this ruin city. Embark the "Scorpion-tail" vessel cruise along the Ping River for about 45 minutes.
