To get  a uniquely interesting view of Chiang Mai, Thailand, Mae Ping Cruises (053) 274-822, offers three short voyages along the Ping River, as follows: 

Dinner cruise: Two tours, the first begins at 7pm, and they will pick you up from your hotel.  Price is 450 baht. 

Day cruise 1: an 8 kilometer cruise taking between 1.5 and 2 hours.  300 baht includes fruit and a drink.  The cruise is available from 8:30 am – 7 pm, and you meet the boat at the Wat Chaimongkol pier, 1.5 km east of the old city.  Price is 300 baht, minimum 2 persons. 

Day cruise 2: a shorter cruise departs from the pier adjacent to the Riverside Restaurant, on the eastern side of the river, just north of Nawarat Road.  The boat stops at Tha Luk pier for 40 minutes.  Price is 100 baht, minimum two persons, and includes a free drink.  Departures are hourly, from 10 am – 3 pm.
