Hop aboard a vibrant long-tail boat, an emblem of Thai culture, and immerse yourself in the serenity of the scenic river route. As you drift along the peaceful Mae Ping, take in the sights of traditional homes interspersed with modern residences lining the riverbanks—an ode to Chiang Mai's harmonious blend of old and new. A fun fact to charm the culinary enthusiasts: the region's air is subtly scented with aromatic lemongrass, a common ingredient in Thai cuisine that also serves as a natural mosquito repellent.
