Detailed Description

Thailand is your moment to bring the family closer together on this 7-day tour meant for family fun and adventure, cultural discovery and those moments of educational wonder that will have the kids learning without evening knowing it. Your time will take you through the sensations of Thailand’s second largest city and hiding away in a local town surrounded by natural splendor. The beauty of the jungle is inescapable, the marvels of hillside tribes are unbelievable, and your family will only be able to awe at the entire adventure.

Your family outing begins with your arrival in Chiang Mai. The wonders abound as you settle into your hotel and are picked up by a traditional trishaw. Within the city walls you can find the grandeur of a metropolis seemingly disguised as a town; outside the walls you find the ease and comforts of the countryside, including a coffee plantation and the White Hmong hill tribe village of Chang Khien. Soon you will ascend the mountain Doi Suthep to see the wonderful view that overlooks the entire city taking in your first sunset in Thailand with the family already in awe.

Your second day brings more adventure as you are taken to Lisu Village to pick up mountain bikes that will have you coasting along the country roads, from magnificent hillsides to paddy fields. Your guide will take you beside the Mae Taeng River bringing you to a wonderful lunching spot where you will dine surrounded by the luxurious landscape. After lunch you will climb aboard a raft and begin your adventure down the trickling waterway which soon trundles over rocks, streaming down into whitewater, and giving you a rush of energy amidst the fun loving family cries of “wow!”

The following day you will venture out into the jungle once again to witness the incredible Mae Kampong Village; a remarkable cooking course will unwrap the flavors of the most famous Thai dishes. You also have the option of sailing through the treetops with the Flight of the Gibbon experience. The following morning will have you venturing through the windy hills of the forest arriving in the delightful and tranquil town of Pai. The days are yours to explore the excellent landscape, from Pai Canyon to Pam Bok Waterfall; you could even experience a circus class. On your final day you will return to Chiang Mai to begin your journey home with the fantastic praise of the family endlessly on loop.
