Itinerary

Tour duration: Daily from 08:00 a.m. – 05:00 pm

Pick up from your hotel lobby at 8:00 a.m. We are heading to Lampang province and leading to the magnificent floating temple known in Thai as “Chalermprakiat Temple” or “Phu Pha Dang Temple” by the locals. The temple floats high on the limestone mountain. Temple started in 2004 and finished in 2015. The temple was built to commemorate Kung Rama 4th of the Rattanakosin dynasty’s 200th anniversary. We must navigate an 800-meter climb through iron stairs, some as steep as 35-degree angles, to reach the pagodas. However, it is worth climbing up. You are going to feel fresh with the lovely view above. After the floating temple, lunch in the local restaurant to fill in your energy.

Then, visit the Dhanabadee Ceramic Museum, a Lampang museum established by Phanasin Dhanabadeesakul, whose ancestors were the first group to build a ceramic factory in Lampang. The museum shows many ceramic artworks and, of course, production zones. At production zones, you will see how those ceramic bowls are made. After that, Lampang is known as the town of ceramic. Those popular chicken-patterned bowls are also based in Lampang. There are many exhibitions of them at the museum. According to the information, People started to use chicken-patterned ceramic bowls about 60 years ago. At first, when Ruamsamakkee Factory, the first ceramic factory of Lampang, was established, production was only launched slowly as there needed to be hi-tech industrial machines.

However, chicken-patterned bowls have been popular. Later, even though the Ruamsamakkee Factory was closed, the Dhanabadee Factory was established instead. Still, chicken patterns have been best sellers. These patterns have been developed. The production has been modernized. Everything has been better and better. You will learn their history through authentic bowls, photos, texts, and cute figures. There are also souvenir shops, so to purchase some patterned chicken bowls, get inside and choose your favourite ones. On the way back to Chiang Mai, stop by Baan Ta’s fresh local market with the local people who find the fresh vegetables, herbs, and things they could see from the surroundings to survive, then head back to Chiang Mai safe and sound.
