Meet your guide and group of 10 people or fewer inside the old city on the moat road to the east of Chiang Mai Gate. Arrive at 5:45 p.m. for a bike and helmet fitting, then pedal off at 6 p.m., bound for the old city’s eastern gate. Stop at Tha Phae, once an entrance to visiting traders, now beautifully restored and a great place to stop for a bit of history.
Cycle on to Wat Intakhin to see the centuries-old white Buddha and the Three Kings Monument, where you will listen to your guide talk about the founding of Chiang Mai. Once you reach the city moat, leave your bikes behind and walk across to Wat Lok Molee to check out the wooden prayer hall, and maybe even hear some chanting monks.
Bike on to the city’s most famous monument, the Wat Chedi Luang, home to the City Pillar and three good-luck Dipterocarp trees. The tour’s last stop is the night markets of Chiang Mai, where you will sample some street food and sip a drink with your guide. Finish up around 10 p.m.
