Let's explore the local side of Chiang Mai in my small lovely hometown. We'll bike along the canals of Mae Taeng with my family and me. You'll see the farmer's way of life and learn why water is life for the agricultural community. Then let's have a picnic along the local dam with my family's home-cooked Northern Thai dishes. Then let's finish your relaxing day with Thai Massage.

Mae Taeng Cycling Trip: Agricultural Life, Homemade Picnic & Thai Massage

★★★★★★★★★★

Fun, active and authentic!

My two friends and I loved our cycling tour with Pat and her family!

The day began with Pat and her husband picking us up at our hotel and driving us out to her family's home in Mae Teng. The home is incredible-- Pat's grandmother and mother have spent years creating a garden that grows every Thai fruit and vegetable you can imagine. We were given a tasting tour of the garden and were then brought to the kitchen to sample the family's "signature smoothie" (delicious) and learn how to wrap sticky rice for our picnic lunch. We then ventured out on our ride, which took us to an orchard/garden and along the village roads. We made stops along the way to snack on street food and pick up dessert for our picnic lunch. When we reached our lunch destination, Pat and her husband had set up a beautiful table with a huge, fresh, tasty spread. On the way back, we stopped and climbed to the top of a hidden temple that provided one of the most stunning views of the day. We returned to the family home for a final snack of papaya and coconut water before Pat and her husband drove us back to the city.

I can't say enough about how kind, friendly and knowledgeable Pat and her family are. We felt so welcomed, and I learned more during our tour than in the previous week I had spent in Thailand. As a bonus, Pat's husband filmed the entire trip with his GoPro and sent us an edited highlight video, free of charge!

If you have an opportunity to take this tour-- DO IT!

Mae Taeng Cycling Trip: Agricultural Life, Homemade Picnic & Thai Massage

★★★★★★★★★★

Unforgettable cycling & homestay experience I had!! :D

After my 1st signed up to this cycling tour, I then started to worry whether it will be too tiring or tough for a person like me who don't regularly a cyclist at all during my KL city life

After personally experienced this cycling tour, it was really a nice one that I have done. It's quite easy & nothing to worry at all. Moreover you get a chance to enjoy the beautiful peaceful village, the farms, the temples as well as meeting some friendly locals.

According to Khun Pat, she has a few cycling routes available to suit her clients' need according to his/ her fitness level. Great!!

Not just that I really enjoyed the great hospitality from Khun Pat & her warm family members too. Enjoyed conversed with her grandma in Hokkien dialect too :D Definitely 1 of the warm homestay experience I had throughout my travel journeys thus far

Love her mum's home cooking the most & started to miss most of her delicious foods served too during stay, the picnic lunch, dinner & packed breakfast the next morning for my early flight.

Personally also very impressed with the fresh garden picks & then home cooking concept. Am sure most of the guests who had a stay experience here would enjoy & love it too.

Highly recommended if you wish to have a relax peaceful as well as a healthy getaway :D

Cheers,
