What To Expect

From the historic Lamphun train station, you will bike the quiet streets of the small city, which was once the capital of an ancient Mon Kingdom, to the famous Wat Phra That Hariphunchai.

From Wat Phra That Hariphunchai, you start cycling across the countryside biking through villages, along canals and tree lined lanes. After enjoying a simple Thai lunch in a village, you will bike through paddy fields until we come upon the famous wood carving village of Baan Tawai.

Then we meander on through country lanes and the foothills of Doi Suthep to a Beekeeping Center. After biking up and down a few hills on forested lanes, we arrive at the forest temple of Wat Umong before returning to the city of Chiang Mai.

Note

  • This bike tour is an easy ride on back roads and country lanes. While the ride is mostly flat, there is a short section with a few rolling hills.
  • The tropical sun can be quite fierce, so we recommend you use some sun block or, if you prefer a natural option, sun sleeves for your arms and Buff headwear for your neck.

  • Men and women need to cover their shoulders to enter temples and mosques. Women need to cover their knees as well, so If you like to wear shorts when riding, we recommend bringing a sarong to wear for entering a temple or mosque.

The tour guide Kai, he was amazing, helpful entertaining and super supportive as we rode through the city. He really made my partner and I feel secure with the bike tour! You have to ask for Kai when you sign up- he’s the best!

Still have question?

How do I book on Inspitrip?

For most experiences on Inspitrip, there are two options: Small Group and Private tour. For both options, you can chat with your local guide and other people in your group even before the trip takes place.
  • Small group tour: operates with a maximum number of people. If you like to make new friends, this is a great option. You would pay for the trip to confirm your slot, then join a chat group with your local guide as well as fellow travel buddies, everything would be on Inspitrip. Get to know them!
  • Private tour: maximizes your privacy and allows you to freely customize the itinerary. First, request to communicate any specific needs you may have, wait a couple minutes for these requests to be confirmed, and then you can proceed to payment.

What is the cancellation and refund policy?

Cancellation is free if you cancel up to 48 hours before the trip date. We believe that this is the fairest way to ensure that both our travelers and local guides are happy.

Does the Small Group option still operate if there are less than the maximum number of people signed up?

Yes, even if you are the only person who signs up for the trip on a given date, the tour will still take place.
