The Colours of Chiang Mai Bicycle Tour lasts about 4 hours and will take you through the southern part of Chiang Mai visiting the temples and other important sites.

Photos of Wat Bupparam, Chiang Mai Chiang Mai

Wat Bupparam is located on busy Tha Phae Road together with the temples of Mahawan and Wat Chetawan.

Wat Bupparam has a beautiful white and golden chedi and a decorated temple made of teak and decorated in the old Lanna style. The temple was built by Burmese artisans who immigrated to Chiang Mai.

The temples of Wat Lam Chang and Wat Ban Ping are both located right of Tha Ratchapnakhinai in the eastern part of the old city of Chiang Mai.

If you take a look around Wat Lam Chang...

Houses alongside the railroad Chiang Mai

A good and inexpensive way to travel in Thailand is by train and especially when you have to travel longer distances the night train is a real invention.

To get from Ayutthaya to Chiang Mai we bought some tickets for the night train. We thought nobody would be getting on that train so we bought the tickets the evening before. Unfortunately the train turned out to be fully booked!
