Welcome to Thailand! Chiang Mai is famous for its Night Bazaar and more than 300 temples so step out and explore its charming sights.
Pull on some hiking boots and set off into Thailand's northern hills from Chiang Mai to meet locals and visit their villages. Walk through forests and rural terrain and learn about the distinct languages, dress and beliefs of the various hilltribes. Tuck into a delicious dinner before climbing into a bamboo hut for a real taste of life in Thailand's jungle.
Continue the hike and stop off at an elephant camp. Discover what life is like for a mahout and their elephant then take a ride on one of these gentle creatures through the jungle.
Opt to try bamboo rafting, stopping in at small riverside communities along the way. In free time back in Chiang Mai, why not pick up some last-minute bargains or simply settle back at a local cafe and share stories of this hilltribe experience.
