Day 3:
CHIANG MAI (Breakfast, Lunch)
Early morning departure for the visit of the famous long-necked women of the Padaung ethnic group Departure for the visit of “Wiang Kum Kam” an ancient city located in the Saraphi district about 3 km south of the south-eastern corner of the center of Chiang Mai. According to chronicles and archaeological evidence, the old city was built by King Mangrai around the latter part of the 13th century. The city was established as a new capital by the king after his victory over the Mon kingdom of Hariphunchai, modern-day Lamphun. Due to repeated flooding, a new capital, Chiang Mai, was built a few years later. Wiang Kum Kam flourished during the reign of the Mangrai dynasty until the end of the 16th century. Traces were then lost for many years, until 1984, when Unit 4 of the Department of Fine Arts discovered the remains of the old city around Wihan Kan Thom at Wat Chang Kham and excavations were subsequently started; many new remains have since been found and restorations have continued ever since. The main temple in the city is Wat Chedi Liam (originally Wat Ku Kham), which is still occupied by monks. Lunch in a typical restaurant. Visit Chiang Mai and visit the old city on board a cyclo, a traditional means of transport in many Asian countries. Visit Wat Chedi Luang and Wat Phra Sing. At the end, some local handicraft factories are visited. Free time for shopping. Back to the hotel.
