This tour is highly recommended for those seeking to understand the Buddhist way of lif. Your early-morning tour begins with a scenic drive is a songthaew - an iconic public bus - before stopping by Kad Ton Payom, a flea market well known for its northern Thai cuisine.
Check-in with your karma, because next you'll be able to "make merit" by offering alms to the local monks. After gaining some good points, grab a hearty traditional style Chiang Mai grub, and then move on to Wat U-Mong. Behold here a 600-year-old temple famed for its large painted pagoda and underground tunnel. This is also the perfect place to get to know more about Buddhism and Dharma.
But don't get too caught up because your next stop allows you to mingle with and learn about a monk's way of life at Wat Suan Dok temple. Utilize your time here by learning basic meditation and seal your day off with an offering to the Sangkha.
