Baan Kiri has a strong reputation for helping its guests to acclimatise and get the most from their time here. If you would like it we are happy to provide information ranging from orientation, cultural insights and hints & tips; to advising on activities and trips. If you would like any help or advice on things to do during your stay or would like us to book something for you, then please let us know and we’ll be happy to help.
Many of our guests tell us they prefer ‘do-it-yourself’ excursions to organised group tours. As a result of this, we have worked with them to build a list of the most popular places. We can give you a menu of ideas to choose from and then you can go and explore on your own either on a motor scooter or with one of our trusted red truck (Song Tao) drivers. This includes:
• temples (we know some great hidden gems)
• waterfalls and lakes
• short treks
• ‘real’ hill-tribe experience
• ‘real’ local Thai markets
• botanic gardens
That said, there are also many activities where you really do need to be part of a group; for example:
• spend time with elephants (we only recommend places where they are well looked after and where they do not allow people to ride them)
• cooking class
• street food tour
• zip lining
• bicycle tour
• organised treks
Then again, you may like to be pampered with a massage, sauna, facial or pedicure. Chiang Mai has hundreds to choose from – we can make recommendations from the best street massages to full day packages at high end spas.
