Herbal Compress and Lanterns in Lampang

Lampang-Sebadella

For travelers that stay in Chiang Mai, Khiri Travel Thailand has put together a great new day tour in which guests can pay a visit to the charming town of Lampang.

On the way from Chiang Mai to Lampang, lies the temple Wat Pong Sanuk, which won international plaudits for its inspirational model of community-led conservation in saving a unique form of Lanna architecture. The temple received a Heritage Award of Merit in 2008 from the United Nations Educational Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) for its restoration efforts.

Upon arrival in Lampang, board a horse carriage to explore the town, passing by well-conserved old wooden houses and buildings built in traditional northern style along a forest lane.

Among the various family businesses, we visit a home factory producing Lampang’s famous rice crackers made of sticky rice and watermelon juice called “Kao Tan Nam Taeng Mo.” Taste the delicious rice crackers and see the production process before continuing to Patamasevee Learning Center, located in a well-conserved old northern Thai house.

Learn about the production process of beautiful paper lanterns made of bamboo sticks and colorful hand-made papers. The lanterns contain several meanings in Buddhism and are therefore used in religious and traditional ceremonies.

We continue on to visit Lampang Herb Conservation Assembly. One of the staff of the center gives us an introduction and briefing about the activities of the assembly as well as its health and spa services including herbal steam and Thai massage. Of course all guests are invited to enjoy a Thai massage with herbal compress.
