6 DAYS UNSPOILED NORTHERN THAILAND

Chiang Mai, Chiang Rai & Chiang Saen

Family Travel, History & Culture, Nature & Wildlife

Highlights

  • A magical evening chanting with local Chiang Mai monks
  • Meet rural hill tribes with their authentic, slow living lifestyle
  • Channel your inner mahout with fun showering experience with rescued elephants
  • Traditional long-tailed Golden Triangle cruise at the river confluence where Thailand, Myanmar and Laos borders congregate

Far from the tourism powerhouse of Bangkok metropolis and its southern beaches, the idyllic beauty of Northern Thailand remains a century away, rewarding those who seek the unseen face of Thailand.

Immerse in the authentic, slow living of the north as you hike across hilltribe minority villages, join the monks on evening spiritual chanting and haggle with local villagers for a juicy bite of exotic fruits.

Retreat to a luxury camp where you can get acquainted with playful Asian elephants and hop a long-tailed boat at the river confluence where Thailand, Myanmar and Laos meet.
