Day 3 Chiang Mai

Enjoy a final day of trekking. For the more adventurous, there's the option to hit the water on an adrenaline-pumping ride aboard bamboo rafts, stopping into small riverside villages along the way. Grab a lift back to the northern capital in a songthaew and, if time permits, stay on for further explorations of Chiang Mai. A trip to the top of Doi Suthep for unsurpassed views of the city is highly recommended.

Days 1-2 Chiang Mai/Hilltribe Trek

With its famous Night Bazaar and over 300 temples to explore, there's always something to see and do in this cosmopolitan northern city. Why not arrive early to people-watch at the bustling markets or indulge in an invigorating traditional Thai massage before embarking on the trek? Journey north in a songthaew to the start of this trekking adventure. Head off into the tropical forest, bound for hilltribe villages. Enjoy dinner in the jungle and the chance to meet the locals. Many colourful ethnic minorities can be found in the hills of northern Thailand, each with their own language, clothing style and belief system. The next day, learn about the life of a mahout and their elephants. Why not enjoy a ride through jungle on one of these gentle giants? Each evening, fall asleep in a traditional bamboo hut, accompanied by the sounds of the jungle.
