Day 8: Chiang Mai / Bangkok

Meals: Breakfast and Lunch

Morning tour– One of the most unique experiences in Thailand is a visit to a Buddhist temple to offer alms to the Buddhist monks. Each morning before dawn (pick-up from your hotel is at 06:00hrs), the monks put on their distinctive saffron robes and quietly pad in their bare feet along the streets, carrying alms bowls and receiving boiled rice and condiments from the citizens of Thailand In return people receive the monks' blessings. You can participate in this very special Thai custom by personally presenting alms; a brief exploration at the Sri Soda temple may be made as well, religious festivals permitting, including the monks praying in the early morning. A recommendation for an enlightened tour, return to your hotel for breakfast.

The Buddhist temple Wat Phrathat Doi Suthep is undoubtedly one of the most sacred sites in all of Thailand, and one of the most sacred places to Buddhists across the globe. Built atop a mountain named Doi Suthep, the temple offers stunning views of nearby Chiang Mai, and contains a model of the Emerald Buddha and a statue of the Hindu God Ganesh. Legend has it that the spot for the temple was chosen when a white elephant carrying a piece of Buddha's shoulder bone was sent off into the jungle, climbed Doi Suthep, and trumpeted three times before dying on that holy ground. Lunch is served at a local restaurant (food only).
