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.
Arrive at any time.
Transfer into the jungle highlands of northwest Thailand with a stop for lunch in Pai along the way. Meet your local hosts and lend a hand to dinner using regional products and traditional cooking methods.
Walk to the fields surrounding the village to learn about (or even opt to help out with!) local farming practices before visiting a prehistoric wooden coffin cave. Dine on a typical jungle lunch that is cooked and served in bamboo. In the afternoon, learn about the local education system with a visit to a school. Opt to assist with various volunteer projects or help out with dinner preparation.
Learn about the Lahu culture and traditional activities. Try bamboo weaving, make a Lahu bag and learn how to play a Lahu instrument. Free time in the afternoon to assist your local family with daily activities or volunteer to work on various projects in the community.
Say goodbye to your local hosts and buy any last minute hand-crafted goods before transferring back to Chiang Mai. Enjoy a final evening with the group.
