DETAILED DECRIPTION

The north of Thailand is home to majestic mountains, exotic wildlife, and ancient ruins. This exciting seven-day luxury itinerary, tailor-made by Remote Lands, takes visitors from the ancient ruins of Sukhothai, to the popular culture-heaven of Chiang Mai, and finally to Chiang Rai, where you’ll get to explore a completely different side to Thailand.

DAY-TO-DAY

DAY 1: Sukhothai

On the first day of your Northern Adventure, we’re going to take you to explore the ancient capital of Thailand, Sukhothai. We’ll stop at the Sukhothai Historical Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, which is home to just under 200 ancient ruins, including a royal palace and 26 temples.

DAY 2: Chiang Mai

The next day, you’ll take a scenic drive to Chiang Mai, Thailand’s capital of the North. You’ll explore Waroros Market, a sprawling complex of stalls selling everything from fresh produce to Thai handicrafts. In the evening, you’ll relax at your luxury hotel. We recommend either the stunning Dhara Dhevi Hotel, or the Four Seasons Chiang Mai.

DAY 3: Chiang Mai

You’ll start your day off with the “Prolong Life Ceremony”, which is traditional to the north, and as the name implies, is performed to extend the longevity of one’s life. Next, you’ll visit Wat Umong, nestled into the bottom of one of Thailand’s most majestic mountains, Doi Suthep. Finally, you’ll do some shopping or browsing at Chiang Mai’s famous Night Bazaar, best-known for its talented portrait artists.

DAY 4: Chiang Mai

On your final day in Chiang Mai, you’ll begin with a visit to the Tiger Kingdom, where you can actually pet a fully-grown tiger, and play with little tiger cubs. The second thrilling event of the day will take place at an Elephant Camp, where you’ll get to see these majestic creatures in all their glory. You’ll wind down with a traditional Thai cooking class, taught by a highly-trained Thai chef.

DAY 5: Chiang Rai

Today, you’ll drive to the heart of the Golden Triangle which connects Thailand, Laos, and Myanmar - Chiang Rai. Once arrived, you’ll head to the Hall of Opium, which presents the history of opium, and the impacts of illegal drugs. Head back to one of our two suggested hotels, either the exotic Four Seasons Tented Camp, or the Anantara, both being luxurious abodes.

DAY 6: Chiang Rai

Guests will get close up with elephants again today, but this time, you’ll be taught the basics of mahout training, which involves learning how to mount and dismount, ride, and wash an elephant. Next up, you’ll visit the panoramic and famous Golden Triangle. Finally, you’ll check out Chiang Saen, an ancient city from the height of the Lanna Kingdom.

DAY 7: Chiang Rai

On this, the final day of your trip to Northern Thailand, you’ll visit a memorable, picturesque place that has been compared to China’s Shangri-La, Doi Mae Salong. Following this will be a trip to a tea plantation, an industry for which Chiang Rai is gaining increasing notoriety. You’ll finish off your journey by paying a visit to one of Chiang Rai’s hill tribes, which are numerous in the area.
