|Chiang Mai, Thailand|
Chiang Dao literally translated means "the City of Stars", is North of Chiang Mai en route to Tha Ton. Chiang Dao town centre has charming old style wooden shops flanking the highway. Chiang Dao is famous for its Elephant Camp and Elephant show. You will arrive at the camp after a drive along picturesque routes - winding around the bends of the road high above the Mae (River) Ping. Watch the elephants taking their morning bath and demonstrating some of their skills. Afterwards take an elephant ride through some of the lovely forest scenery and along the river. After lunch, you will take a bamboo raft trip down the Mae Ping. Admire the scenery and absorb the tranquillity as you float down the river. On your return trip to Chiang Mai, you will visit an orchid farm.
