Comments about this trip

A great 3 day trip out of the city to see the rural life of Northern Thailand. Our guide was entertaining and informative and the village people all very friendly. The hike was challenging but not too hard and the elephant riding and rafting great experiences. On the way back we visited the "long neck" tribe and it was interesting to see their culture and get a chance to see this tribe who have come from Burma.
