Day 3: Sukothai – Chiang Mai

Arrival at Chiang Mai in the late afternoon. Overnight at The Empress Hotel.

 

Day 4: Chiang Mai - Golf
Today you will play your 1st round of golf in the north. The Chiang Mai Highlands Golf Resort & Spa lies about 45 minutes from the city center. The last part of the trip leads through exceptionally beautiful landscape, in eastern direction along extensive rice fields into the mountains. The course was opened only in 2005 and contributes the range of Chiang Mai's golf curses with it's well designed layout and stunning views over the area. The large and partly sloped greens are not easy to play, especially since they are protected by several bunkers. Bunkers and water hazards at the sides provide the distinctive note of this course and require a strategic game. A nice clubhouse with pleasant atmosphere and all facilities  provides relaxation before or after the golf round. Lunch at the clubhouse. Overnight at The Empress Hotel.

 

Day 5: Chiang Mai - Sightseeing
After breakfast we depart for the Wat Doi Suthep Temple, the most beautiful and most important temple of the city, located 1080 meters high on the Suthep Mountain. On clear days you get a fantastic view over the city and the province Chiang Mai. The main attraction of the 16th century temple is the golden Chedi, 32 m high and surrounded by a walk way with Buddhist wall paintings. Later on we visit 2 more historical temples in the old city and have lunch at a local restaurant. In the afternoon we proceed to the well-known handicrafts  villages of Chiang Mai. Arts and crafts of the Chiang Mai region  are world-famous. We visit a teak wood workshop, silver and silk production and the Sa-paper umbrella factory. Return to Chiang Mai and overnight at The Empress Hotel.

 

Day 6: Chiang Mai - Golf - Sightseeing
After breakfast you leave Chiang May northward for the visit of a elephant camp, where the daily work of the elephants in the jungle is demonstrated to you as well as the training of the young elephants. You have the possibility (optional) for an elephant ride thought jungle (around 45 minutes), followed by a ride on a bamboo raft on the Mae Taman River.
After lunch you continue to the Mae Jo Golf Club which is located  right behind the Mae Jo University, the oldest College of Agriculture Thailand's. Seni Thirawat, a well known Thai golf course designer has created a real jewel with this course. Long fairways with Zoysia grass are perfect for low handicap player from yellow, whereas higher handicap players rather play from white (6.227 yards). Several water hazards and doglegs as well as long par 5's require a demanding game.
The Korean Velvet greens are mostly wide but often with a slope. The surrounding mountains provide a stunning view and a great nature experience. Thousands of mango trees, lynches, pomelo, longan and orange trees line the fairways. Another highlight is the refreshment bar at the 14th hole, with a dream like view. The club house in "Lanna Style" offers all facilities and friendly service.
