1-Day Sightseeing in Chiang Rai
Chiang Mai, Chiang Rai, Pai & Northern Thailand, Thailand
Hello, everyone, my name is Tao Wimae. I am a private local tour guide in Thailand, Chiang Mai and Chiang Rai region.
I am from in the Northern part of Thailand in Chiang Rai city which is about 879 km away from Bangkok. I was born in the country side of Border Myanmar and Thailand. I am from the Akha hill tribe, and I used to live in the nature jungle or at the country side of Thailand. I studied nine subjects in high school including Biology, History, English, etc... The subjects were taught in English, and I started speaking English when I was young. I finished high school in 1993, and when I was 19, I left and taught English at a school near the border of Myanmar and China.
I used to trek and hike a lot in the jungle. I learn about the forest plants, which are used to heal, which are edible and which are poisonous. All together I have about 20 years in the jungle, and now I am a trekking guide. I enjoy sharing and teaching about the Akha hill tribe ways, and I love to show and share how do our people live in the forest with beautiful or wilds animals and lead a natural living life. Cooking in the jungles by Bamboo is the most of our original traditional style. Almost everything that comes from the forest is useful and good for us.
I will bring you to the best areas to trek in Chiang Rai. I offer 1 to 3 days jungles trekking as well as 1 to 2 days sightseeing around in the North of Thailand. Let's us explore the nature forests by trekking with me! I look forward to serve you as a private local tour guide in Thailand, Chiang Mai and Chiang Rai region.

The White Temple is one of the most spectacular temples you will see in Thailand. Wat Rong Khun is a unique temple that stands out through the white color and the use of pieces of glass in the plaster, sparkling in the sun. The white color signifies the purity of the Buddha, while the glass signifies the Buddha’s wisdom and the Dhamma, the Buddhist teachings.
Baan Dam (Black House) is the unique creation of national artist, Thawan Duchanee. Part art studio, part museum, part home, Baan Dam is an eclectic mix of traditional northern Thai buildings interspersed with some outlandish modern designs. The Black House isn’t just one structure, but a collection of around 40 buildings of varying shapes and sizes dotted around a peaceful garden. The largest structure is located by the main entrance and sets the tone for what visitors can expect as they explore the rest of the site.
