Set Sail on Chiang Mai’s Newest Adventure: The JAO Ping River Cruise

Anantara Chiang Mai Resort is adding a splash of luxury to the Mae Ping River with the launch of the JAO Ping River Cruise. This exciting new experience takes you on a journey through Chiang Mai’s rich cultural heritage, all from the comfort of a beautifully restored teak boat.

Sunrise Cruise: A Cultural Awakening

Start your day with the sunrise cruise, departing at 9 am. Sail to Wat Ket Karam, one of Chiang Mai’s oldest and most diverse communities, where Buddhists, Christians, Muslims, Hindus, and Sikhs live side by side. Make merit with the monks and savour the city’s best-kept culinary secret — the bite-sized dumplings at Lung Kajohn, now a Michelin guide favourite. This cruise offers a rare glimpse into the harmonious blend of cultures that make up this vibrant neighbourhood.

Twilight Cruise: An Evening of Elegance

Sip on free-flowing sparkling wine and nibble on canapés as you take in the magical evening ambience. The sky glows with hues of ochre and pink, providing a stunning backdrop for an unforgettable evening on the river.

Afternoon Tea and Dinner Cruises: A Regal Affair

For those looking for a more indulgent experience, the Nam Jit offers afternoon tea and dinner cruises. Enjoy a traditional English afternoon tea with a tropical twist, featuring freshly baked pastries and seasonal delicacies. The dinner cruise is a sumptuous affair, with royal Thai cuisine served under the stars. Free-flow drinks and expertly crafted cocktails enhance the dining experience, making it a night to remember.

“At Anantara, we believe in immersing guests in the real destination,” says Pitak Norathepkitti, General Manager of Anantara Chiang Mai Resort. “Our new river cruise offering is a perfect blend of luxury and local culture, providing guests with a unique way to experience Chiang Mai’s rich heritage.”
