Family Discovery & Walking Holiday In Thailand

This active trip is designed to combine a taste of traditional hilltribe life with a jungle trek. Staying in bamboo stilt-houses, home to Northern Thailand's hilltribes, we have the fantastic opportunity to experience their unique customs. Join us on river cruise and ride elephants through rice paddies. Finally we swim in the sparkling waters of a tropical island and discover vibrant Bangkok.

  • Chiang Mai - Bustling walled old town and the serene hillside Doi Suthep Temple
  • Lampang - Visit the elephant sanctuary and hospital
