With decades of experience catering to tourists it is no surprise that Thailand is adept at providing a full spectrum of thrills for visitors. While some families prefer to make directly for the beaches of the south, taking a northerly tack can result in equal levels of enjoyment.
The journey starts – as many Thailand adventures do – in the capital Bangkok, a buzzing city that offers fascinating layers including authentic street cuisine, obscure floating markets and interesting surrounding countryside. From Bangkok, it is a short flight to the northern capital Chiang Mai and then a picturesque road journey to the town of Pai. Although firmly established on the tourist trail, Pai is surrounded by some of Thailand’s most unspoiled countryside where it is possible to partake in a range of activities including bamboo rafting; elephant rides and hikes through ethnic communities.
The adventure concludes in Chiang Mai, where guests can visit sacred temples, learn how to make authentic local meals or simply kick back in one of the Kingdom’s most special spots.
