What better way to unravel Chiang Mai's mystique than by flight as you get to know the little quaint town inside and out from heaven's view. Paraplane flying – a mode of flight using a powered parachute – is one of Chiang Mai's exciting tourist activities it has to offer. Since this is a morning activity, a professional service team will pick you up at your hotel around 5:00am to 6:00am. Afterwards, a light breakfast will be served for all participants at 6:30am. By 7:00am, the tour operator will lead you to the activity's instructor and pilot. Get excited because you'll also be changing into paraplane gear around this time, too. Following the training, you're all set for the ride and you'll be floating in the sky at 7:15am. A ride lasts for about 15 minutes, just the right amount of time to witness the city's slow urbanisation while still maintaining its natural origins. You'll see all sorts of sightings from sacred temples to rivers and other extensive waters coming from the old city.
