We then explore the ancient city of Chiang Mai. It is a great time to get to know the culture as well as our fellow travel companions.

Then they take us on a tour through the factory where we get to see Thai artisans at work making jade jewelry or carvings. There is a small museum that showcases jade from around the world. Finally, we have the chance to purchase jade for ourselves or as gifts.

We also purchase our own rice lantern to be released into the night sky. There is also fireworks and a parade. All these activities are done within a 2-day span.
