Thailand’s status as one of the tourism powerhouses in Southeast Asia means that many visitors make a point of exploring the country’s picturesque northern reaches. Familiarity, however, has not diluted the visual impact of this tranquil corner of Asia. What’s more, while the northern capital Chiang Mai sees plenty of footfall, other parts of the region see far less visitors. Such is the case on this adventure, which showcases the landscapes and culture in relatively neglected provinces such as Chiang Rai, Nan and Phitsanulok. In the far north, guests will enjoy encounters with the area’s ethnic cultural tribes, learning the secrets of Hmong craftsmanship and engaging in eco-conscious activities such as planting herbs. Passing through amazing scenery, the journey heads south before finishing up at Sukhothai, a former capital of Thailand known for its evocative ruins.
