Lin’s tour to Doi Inthanon is a must experience when visiting Chiang Mai. The trip was very well organised and there was never rush to anywhere. You get to visit non-touristic places which you would never visit with other tours. Also the popular touristic places are very quiet as the tour starts early. Perfect for photographing!
Lin and her husband are simply amazing. Lin is super friendly guide who speaks perfect English and gives you the local insides, so you can get to know real Thailand way of living. Ask them about chocolate almonds!
