In the afternoon, discover the charming old city of Chiang Mai by foot. The journey starts at Somphet Market, a daily fresh market selling fresh vegetables, spices, meat, fish and sweets. Continue by walk to Wat Chiang Man, the oldest temple in Chiang Mai, and then walk about 10 minutes to the Three Kings Monument which according to the legend story has become a landmark of the city of Chiang Mai. Visit nearby Lanna Folk Life Museum, the white colonial style two-storey building still displaying the sign that says “Municipal Court of Chiang Mai”, but the interior has been totally renovated to showcase the beauty of centuries-old northern heritage. End the walking tour at the Elephant Parade for painting elephants.
Early evening night market through the labyrinth of stalls selling everything from local crafts to fun imitation goods.

A great way to practice your bargaining skills! Enjoy dinner at the night market, and continue for a market walk at Waroros market before returning to the hotel.
