Day Tour No. 108
Mendicants – cycling tour – boat ride
Pick-up at the hotel is about 6 a.m.
The day starts at dawn with the ages old ritual of alms distribution to the Buddhist monks at the Wat Srisoda temple.
Then, we will collective have a delicious breakfast at the Hideaway Garden Restaurant, after which we’ll embark on our cycling tour.
A short way along the main street, then through little alleys, along the river, stop at a leprosy aid project, through villages and along rice fields, where you will get an insight to the local rural life. Our destination is the old sunken city of Wiang Kum Kam.
The driving time on the bicycle amounts to about 3 ½ hours. Average sportsmanship is sufficient; we will only drive on even terrain.
After our visit to Wiang Kum Kam, we will be transferred by pick-up to the boat pier, where we will board a boat and cruise for an hour along the Ping River. We‘ll just lean back and let the impressions pass by, a short stopover at a farmhouse, where we’ll be served the local specialty “Kao Soi”. Then our boat will bring us back to the starting point, from where we will be transferred back to the hotel about 3 p.m. By then, we’ll have a day full of impressions and experiences behind us.
