A Spectrum of Thai Culture - Suggested Tour (CMSUGG4)

Day 1   Sample the delights of the Northern Thai countryside with a trip to the Chiang Dao elephant camp. Watch the elephants taking their morning bath and showing off their skills. Afterwards take an hour long elephant ride to a hilltribe village, getting a good view of the countryside that you pass through. Sample some bamboo rafting down the river. Glide past the lush vegetation and experience the thrill of travelling down the river on a bamboo raft. In the afternoon head back to Chiang Mai.
In the evening experience a traditional Northern Thai style Khantoke dinner. Sample the traditional food and see a spectacular performance of some of the many traditional dances. (L,D)

Day 2   The beginning of a two day, one night trek into the hills around Chiang Mai. Drive to a small town north of Chiang Mai for lunch and in the afternoon walk (4hrs) to a hilltribe village. Experience Northern Thai rural life at first hand, learning about the plants and agriculture of the area.
The first night is spent in a Karen village. The facilities are basic, but the guide will cook you a delicious meal and you will get to stay with the local people! Your guide will tell you about the villagers' customs, culture and daily life. (L,D)

Day 3   Walk for a total of four hours today, so make sure you are reasonably fit. See the hilltribe farms and the scenery of the area. At lunchtime stop for lunch in an Palong village and after a short rest continue on through the rural scenery, to the  end of the trek. Drive back to Chiang Mai. (B,L)

Day 4   A free morning.
In the afternoon, visit some of the many temples in the city of Chiang Mai. Tour around the boundaries of the old city where you can see the remaining city gates and wall. Your guide will tell you about the history of Chiang Mai and the temples that you visit.

Day 5   See the highest mountain of Thailand, Doi Inthanon. Drive to the top of this mountain and admire the wonderful views. Walk along the nature trails to see how the flora differs from that at the lower altitudes. Then visit one of the magnificent waterfalls in the Doi Inthanon National Park as well as an agricultural research station and a hilltribe village. Before returning to Chiang Mai visit a village to see the weaving of the local cotton material. (L)
