This private tour departs from Chiang Mai and heads south for the two ancient towns of Lampang and Lampoon. We profile some of the activities and sights on this tour.
The Lampang Elephant Conservation Center is the first place in Thailand to train elephants for work. You will get to see the elephants pull logs, play tug-of-war with one another and demonstrate their various skills.
One of Lampang’s unique features - for transportation – is the trademark colourful pony carriages. It is the only town to still do so. You will get an opportunity to travel around the town in one of these exotic horse buggies. Another unique feature that the town claims is that it has the world's only training school for baby elephants.
There will be a break for lunch around this time. After lunch we set off to visit another ancient walled town – Lampoon.
Lampoon was the former capital of the Mon Kingdom of Northern Thailand. Lampoon has many beautiful and ancient temples that are still well preserved.
The most famous and venerated temple is Wat Phra That Haripunjaya (Footprint Temple) with its intricately carved sanctuary doors. Among other claims to fame – the movie - Rambo III was filmed at this temple.
After the trip you will be returned to your hotel or airport (if you prefer).
