Chiang Mai organic farm

Songkran is a big deal in Thailand; it’s also the longest holiday, which is getting a lot of us smirking because we can finally have a trip.

And since the water fights are off, we have found a different activity for you that involves tea, lemons, a farm, and the most Instagrammable setting up in the mountains of Chiang Mai.

The Doi Inthanon Tea is an organic farm that specialises in tea and lemons. No matter where you turn, the view is stunning and the air is crisp since the plantation sits on the highest mountain in Thailand – the famous Doi Inthanon.

Back in January, it was a pick-your-own farm where you can hand-pick lemons and bring them home for only ฿50 (~USD1.6) per kilo. There were a lot of visitors who came in just for a shot with the aesthetic lemon garden.

Only from this April to the beginning of 2022, however, Doi Inthanon Tea is spicing things up by becoming a bed and breakfast right at its plantation; just in time for Songkran.
