Day 05 - Sukhothai / Chiang Mai
This morning, leave Sukhothai for Lampang. Visit the Emerald Buddha of Ko Kah, followed by Wat Phra Keo Don Tao with its interesting Burmese-style temple. From there, continue to Phayao to see Wat Sri Kom Kam, which was constructed recently to house the 16m tall Buddha. Enjoy some refreshments at Kwan Phayao, the biggest lake in this area, then have lunch at a local restaurant.
After lunch, continue to Chiang Mai and make a stop at the Elephant Hospital, the world’s first elephant hospital to help sick elephants recover from injuries, stress or diseases, learn how elephants are taken care of and what elephants mean to the Thai people.
