Itinerary

Travel to Thailand and head to chilled-out Chiang Mai, the second largest city in Thailand. The friendly locals, the vibrant Night Bazaar, the fascinating old town bounded by moats and the many ancient ruins enthral travellers from around the world. Hit the markets, temple-hop or relax with a soothing massage.
After breakfast, head off to visit the temple complex of Doi Suthep and climb the 300 steps of its naga stairway. Be rewarded at the top with spectacular panoramas. Later, saddle up for a cycling adventure through green fields following the Ping River downstream. Call into a former leper colony, now a rehabilitation centre, to gain insight into the activities of the missionaries in days gone by. Continue on to discover the real rural Thailand, cruising past orchards, farms and the occasional colourful village. Explore the temple ruins of Wiang Kum Kam on the way back into town.
Get set for an action packed day meeting Chiang Mai's elephants. Visit colourful hilltribe villages, jump onto a mountain bike and tackle dirt roads to arrive at a picnic lunch spot. After refuelling, it's time to raft down the Mae Taeng River and its 14 gorges.
There's always something to see and do in Thailand's cosmopolitan capital of the north. Join a cooking class, trawl through bustling markets or wander the serene grounds of one of the 300 temples found in Chiang Mai.
