DOI INTHANON NATIONAL PARK DAY TOUR : is a mixture of everything in a day – visited famous temples, entered and hike the highest point of Thailand, dine Thai delicacies, a little bit of shopping thru the market, there’s a visit in a waterfalls, an extraordinary garden filled with beautiful flowers and plants everywhere!!! and went all over the DOI INTHANON PARK.
Looking back to this day tour activity in Chiang Mai — I would always be reminded that I get to see Jake Ejercito around the waterfalls in Thailand HAHAHA!! I barely like a local celebrity and it was certainly a perfect timing to get around the same place as him.

Early morning, we were fetched directly from our hostel in Chiang Mai (@25 Hostel) it was also time for us to check-out and just leave our luggage in the reception area while we spend our last day in Chiang Mai the entire day for our last tour.
The tour comes with an English Speaking tour guide in a van that is definitely comfortable for all of us. It turned out we were only 5 in the tour — a small group where we could definitely make the most out of.
I initially thought that we would be spending the entire day in Doi Inthanon National Park alone, but turns out it was a complete of a heck of a day tour experience.
We went over temples around, with a pashmina that one should be ready of. Don’t be like us who wears shorts and sleeveless. So it’ll save you time and you get to enter temples easily and fast with proper clothing and attire.
The intricate designs and interiors of the temples in Thailand is always one of a kind. It lets you enter freely and tour and walk around for a while.
If you are more into nature trippin’ and a cooling ambiance experience, you get to cover a lot of that here Chiang Mai. The places in the itinerary were basically located outside the city area.
One of the most exciting part when it comes to joining group tours, is you get to meet other nationalities and other tourists around. We were part of this small group of 5 and it was pretty interesting to talk about each of our experiences from traveling.
The guy on the far most right — Wilson who I happen to be my seatmate during our van rides was then my IG friend even after the tour. I still tend to see his travels and it was nice to know how he was spending a year just to travel the world.
You would barely hear Filipinos say that they are out of the country and just spend the year just to travel the world — so meeting this type of tourists were definitely interesting, it was so nice to hear and see their travel adventures and escapades as well .
I remembered when we bumped into Jake Ejercito in the waterfalls, it was crazy — as I was just browsing his IG stories a night prior the trip and I didn’t expect we’d be at the same place outside Manila.
I myself definitely loved him!! but the thought of asking someone for a photo was not a normal and typical ME! It was our friend Wilson who even went over Jake and asked if we could have a photo of him! HAHAHA!! it was really epic, and I would never forget it. *Thanks again Wilson for that!
One destination after the other, there was also a huge flower garden where we spent almost an hour just to roam around. It was definitely a breath of fresh air everywhere we go and the scenery was IG worthy wherever you go.
I myself isn’t into hiking also, but we managed to be at the highest peak of Thailand. Which was totally priceless, don’t get me wrong on the hiking part — it wasn’t as mountainous road as we thought it was, there were hardships climbing but everything was already well developed in the place.
We had lunch across a Thai Resto around, got to buy thru the market with their delicacies and candies and sweets and the likes. Fresh fruits were also so cheap — imagine having a big cup of strawberries for only THB10.
The entire tour lasted for the entire day, it was fruitful and full of places that we have explored. Nice to get along with everyone we were with during the tour. The nature trippin’ is something you’d get excited with in this day tour package.
