Loud, bright, chaotic and delightful, Bangkok is a city of modern excesses intermingled with simple traditions, all wrapped up in the famous smiles of the locals.

Awash with stunning temples, fabulous markets and a lively city centre, charming Chiang Mai is rich in culture and the gateway to the northern hilltribes.

Days 4-6 Hilltribe Trek

Meet the hilltribes of Northern Thailand while walking through lush, verdant jungle, enjoying the hospitality, cuisine and friendliness of the people who call this area of Thailand home.

Bangkok is more than just colourful city streets, khlongs (canals) weave their way through suburbs, forest parks green up the city and Buddhist temples help bring serenity.
