Stop At: Doi Tung Royal Villa, Mae Fa Luang Thailand
The scenic drive into the mountains will bring you in and around the Doi Tung Royal Villa, the enclosed Doi Tung Development Project and the nearby Mae Fah Luang Botanical Gardens.
The Doi Tung Royal Villa was the first residence of Her Royal Highness Princess Srinagarindra, The Princess Mother, and was used as a base from which The Princess Mother would oversee work on the Doi Tung Development Project. HRH The Princess Mother was personally involved in the development of the concept for The Royal Villa, hugely inspired by her residence in Lausanne, Switzerland, and closely supervised its construction, aided by the late HRH Princess Galyani Vadhana, her daughter. A guided visit through all the available rooms will give visitors an impression of the simple lifestyle.

Stop At: Hill Tribe Villages, Doi Tung Development Project, Mae Fa Luang Thailand
On the way back from Doi Tung, we will make a stop at some of the hill tribe villages of the region. There are around 20 different hill tribes in all living along the border with Burma (Myanmar) and in and on the Chiang Rai hills and mountains, but only a few of these have the high visibility of, say, the Akha and Hmong. Each hill tribe has its own unique way of dressing themselves up and/or having a unique way in preserving their culture. Our half day tour comes to an end as we bring you back to your booked hotel in Chiang Rai.
