The perfect trip for those who like a bit of physical challenge on your vacation! This trip was a great balance between pushing your body to its limits, whilst surrounded by the most beautiful natural beauty and the opportunity to sample the local culture and cuisine that Bangkok, Chiangmai and Kanachanaburi have to offer. Tip: wear long trousers for the trekking because mosquitoes!!

Excellent trip for those who want a real challenge in activity, yet experience and learn real Thai culture all in 12 days. If going in tropical season (summer), be sure to bring lots of mosquito spray that contains DEET. I made the mistake of not purchasing the correct formula and both my legs were severely bitten. Make sure to bring dry fit clothing, hopefully be in good shape and ready to work hard - the results are with it.
