Trek through the hills surrounding Chiang Mai and meet the local people, known collectively as hilltribes, who have made their homes on these slopes. They have lived in peace and without modern conveniences for many years; a visit to these traditional communities is like travelling back to a simpler time. Learn about jungle food and the local way of life, and ride an elephant through the forest. After all that exertion, recline on a bamboo raft and float downriver, giving the friendly locals a wave as you drift past them going about their daily lives.
Highlights: Explore the vibrant colours of Chiang Mai, trek through Northern Thailand, meet the friendly locals, learn about the Karen tribe and witness their traditional weaving
Thailand Family Adventure (ATFF)
Why do some families go all the way to Thailand just to lie on the beach? We don’t know either. Our family adventure mixes a whole lot of bona fide Thai experiences – everything from a longboat tour of Bangkok, a meeting with a hill tribe community, a cooking class in Chiang Mai and a somber visit to the infamous bridge over the River Kwai – with a little bit of sand and surf, too. Hey, even the Buddha reclined and relaxed once in a while, right?
Highlights: Gett caught up in the bustle of Bangkok, take in the scenery at ancient Ayutthaya, wander through colourful Chiang Mai, relax on the beach in Koh Chang.
