Chiang Mai, Thailand, July 04, 2015 --(PR.com
)-- For those looking for a fun, educational and active family holiday in Chiang Mai, the cultural heart of Northern Thailand, with its many fascinating temples, lively night markets and great range of accommodations and restaurants, Grasshopper Adventures are offering an alternative way of enjoying this wonderful city and its surroundings with their new ‘Chiang Mai Family Cycling Discovery’ tour.
Full of activities designed to appeal to youngsters, the tour begins by biking the main sites of the city itself, before heading out into the countryside to Lamphun, before culminating with an exhilarating ride on the zip lines of the ‘Flight of the Gibbon’.
The tour starts with a guided tour of Chiang Mai, meandering through the old town on two wheels, through back streets and along the ancient moat, visiting many of the city’s temples and other historic sites. Heading out of town the following day, the tour takes riders to the Wat U Mong forest temple, skirts the foot of the hills to the Botanical Gardens, then continues on to a Bee Keeper Training centre and a handicraft village before finishing the tour in the old town of Lamphun. The return to Chiang Mai is by van.
The tour concludes with an adrenaline rush on the final day, flying through the tress on zip-lines with ‘Flight of the Gibbon’.
The 4-day tour includes 2 days of relaxed cycling to cover a distance of 68km, on sealed rural lanes and back roads. The ride is mostly flat and easy, with some small, short hills, and a support vehicle always on hand to rest tired legs. The tour is operated from a hotel base in Chiang Mai, selected for its location, comfort, character and swimming pool.
