Ride the lush valleys of Northern Thailand

Northern Thailand exudes both rustic beauty and serene elegance in every respect. The people have a vibrant character and culture, reflected in their carefree attitude — a refreshing change compared to our frenetic pace in the West. Here you can really feel a special connection to a place when surrounded by the gracious and easy-going hospitality of the local people. We will bike through rice paddies, jungles, farmland and forests, exploring magnificent ancient temples along the way. By night, we’ll marvel at exclusive traditional performances and enjoy memorable meals. By the journey’s end, we’ll experience a deep connection to this remote corner of the globe.

Starting with a stroll from the Portuguese settlements across the river, this walk highlights how Siamese, Chinese, Muslim, and European communities merged with early cottage industries to form the modern capital.Tonight, let Joe Cummings, writer for Lonely Planet and long time resident of Thailand, relay his vast knowledge and experiences at a private dinner in one Bangkok’s terrific restaurants.

Today you will fly to Chiang Mai, where your guide will host you on a great day visiting local sites in and around town, focusing on temples and food. This afternoon visit the mountain temple of Doi Suthep.

Bike ride through lush valleys and rice paddies, passing mountain landscapes and local shrines along the way. Experience lunch outdoors and get a taste of signature dishes from northern Thailand.

Spend the day exploring Chiang Mai, relaxing or going for a bike ride! Dinner tonight is on your own but your guide will happily make reservations.

From our rafting expedition along the Mae Taeng River, we can explore the Chiang Dao Caves, a series of deep caves channelling through porous limestone cliffs in the Chiang Dao region of Chiang Mai. Tonight we will have a riverside dinner overlooking the Ping River, capping off your last day in this magical land by releasing fire lanterns off the pier.

Today we will bring you back to the airport for your journey home. Safe travels!
