Although its climate is kinder than Bangkok’s—especially in the blissfully cool winter months—Chiang Mai can still get rather steamy. Therefore, the idea of gliding around the temples and side streets that characterize the Old City on a Segway has proven a hit with visitors. The tour, which lasts for two hours, is both fun and informative. As well as experiencing the visceral thrill of whizzing through the city on one of the environmentally-sound battery-powered contraptions, guests will find out more about the city’s rich history at spiritual highlights like Wat Phra Singh and Wat Chedi Luang. The tour also includes expert guidance and refreshment and a snack at a charming Old City pit stop.
