Local Living Thailand—Hilltribe Experience (ATHL)

Asia Thailand

When most of us think "Thailand," we think bustling Bangkok, fresh and spicy Lanna cuisine, and flamboyant Buddhist temples. This trip introduces you to a side of Thailand that few see, partnering you up with a local hilltribe for an all-access glimpse into (very) rural life. Explore the village and the jungle that surrounds it, study ancient farming techniques, try your hand at bamboo-weaving, and learn about daily life in the hills from your more-than-welcoming hosts. Bangkok, schmangkok – head for the hills and discover what everyone else has been missing.

Highlights: Connect with local Black Lahu and Shan communities, savour home-cooked Thai food, experience local culture hands-on, learn about local hilltribe customs from those who live and breathe them.
