Detailed Description

The secrets of Siam will be revealed on this 8-day Thailand vacation through the jungle cities and undulating mountains that have hidden the cultures and traditions of the past and present for millennia. From the Golden Triangle to the meandering riverbanks, the sensational resorts to elephant splendor, you will discover the historical and modern majesty of the countryside and the cityscape. Villages continue to populate the jungle. Elephants are still celebrated throughout the northern territory. You can find gilded temples and incredible crafts, each telling you another secret.

Begin to unravel Thailand’s whispered secrets with your arrival in Chiang Rai. The Golden Triangle doesn’t just sparkle in a gilded light but also continues to inspire and awe people that venture to and through its waterway. Visiting the harbor of Chiang Saen will take you to the actual border where Thailand, Laos, and Myanmar converge. Along the banks of the Mae Kok River you will journey to the various tribes that have survived off of the land and within the jungle for centuries, crossing the borders at will, dependent upon the stability of the kingdoms. Whether you choose to canoe or mountain bike, try your hand at Thai cuisine or venture into the village of Baan Thaton, the days will whisper wonders from every direction.

Your search for Siam’s secrets continues en route to Chiang Mai. Whether relaxing in the morning mist or venturing out along the countryside on a half-day tour, you will eventually make your way to the grandiose city that was once a part of the Lanna Kingdom. The traditions and beauty of Chiang Mai persist, making the city feel more like a charming town. Travel to the quaint resort of Mae Sa Craft Village where the optional activities are endless within the plush, natural landscape. Whether saa paper making or venturing into the jungle on an elephant trek, the choices are yours to make and are always fantastic. In the morning you will venture through the wondrous temples of the city, including Doi Suthep which looks out over the vast city and even vaster jungle. Later you will fly to the secluded town of Mae Hong Son and settling in at Fern Resort. The resort is surrounded by grand fields and spectacular forest offering you the best of Thailand’s wildlife, and even a journey to see the Padong women who are known for the brass rings that look to elongate their necks. Soon you will return to Chiang Mai and eventually onwards to home, but not before you have discovered the extraordinary secrets of northern Thailand.
