Get behind the wheel of your tuk tuks and explore rural Chiang Mai.
Tuk-tuk self-drive tour in converted comfortable vehicles
Drive through the spectacular mountain scenery of northern Thailand and stop at several interesting stations
In-depth driver training and Bluetooth music boxes included
Get behind the wheel of a tuk-tuk and explore the enchanted mountainous landscapes of northern Thailand. The vehicles in classic tuk-tuk design offer extra leg and headroom for a comfortable ride. Thanks to built-in Bluetooth speakers, you'll accompany your incomparable joyride with your own personal soundtrack. After an in-depth driving training, your adventure can begin.
Your adventure begins with a 45-minute transfer to the Mae Wang district, the starting point of your tuk-tuk drive. After you leave the bustling Chiang Mai behind and your guide has given you a first introduction to the tuk-tuks, it's time for a detailed driver training.
Once you feel confident with your vehicle, the ride can begin. Your route will take you to the Mae Sapok Valley, where a classic Southeast Asian landscape of rice terraces, water buffalo and small village houses awaits you. Take advantage of the scenery for a vacation photo with a postcard feel. A short walk through the forest will bring you to a small waterfall.
Your drive continues to an elephant camp. Enjoy a simple lunch and learn about the relationship between elephants and the local community. Your visit today will help continue the important work of this small, ethical enterprise so that the pachyderms can continue to move healthily and freely in the fields and forests.
A tranquil river cruise on a traditional bamboo raft completes your experience. Relax and observe local life from a different perspective.
Finally, in the late afternoon, you will drive back to Mae Wang - from where you will be transferred to your hotel in Chiang Mai.
