Start your city excursion by rickshaw at the historic Tha Pae Gate, an ancient city wall that's also the gateway to the narrow and colourful streets leading to Puak Tam community. Meander through this charming artisan village that's most famous for its beautiful brass ornaments and regalia, before taking a break in the shady garden patio of the Chiang Mai Women's Correctional Institution. Though not a standard stop for Chiang Mai visitors, the institution now runs both a restaurant and a massage parlour that provides inmates with learning opportunities beyond the prison walls. Learn a bit about the institution's approach toward inmate rehabilitation before hopping back in your rickshaw and setting off.
