Explore Chiang Mai by trishaw, a non-motorized three-wheeler that relies on the strong legs of the driver. Discover the gleaming temple compound of Wat Prah Singh with its towering chedi and golden rooftops, the exquisite Wat Phan Tao and the elegant Wat Prasat, before ending up at the crumbling Chedi Luang. Travel by minivan to visit the bustling and vibrant Warorot Market, one of the largest in town. Lunch at local restaurant. After, enjoy a winding drive up to the sacred temple of Doi Suthep and climb to the temple gateway, guarded by two threatening Nagas (serpents). Stroll the grounds of Doi Suthep and see golden pillars, six-foot gongs and tinkling rows of bells. Wat Prathat Doi Suthep was built in 1383 to house the holy relic of the Lord Buddha and has become a symbol of Chiang Mai. (B)
