These are just some examples of what is possible to do in a 1 day trip around Chiang Rai, when you rent a bicycle from us we will supply you with a detailed map and route so you can do these trips by yourself or if you would rather do it with a tour guide this is also possible. The advantage of the tour-guide of course is that they can tell you some more information and show you some things you may not find by yourself.
