Run by: Selective Asia
Reference number: An Insider's Thailand
Thailand’s far north is unquestionably the country’s most unspoilt region and this 12 day itinerary follows a loop around the northern provinces, away from the well-worn trail and deep into this scenically stunning and culturally diverse area.
In addition to the well-known northern cities of Chiang Mai and Chiang Rai, you’ll stop at the much smaller towns of Fang and Chiang Kham, close to the Myanmar and Laos borders respectively, where foreign visitors are still somewhat of a novelty. You’ll meet remote minority tribes and trek deep into unspoilt national parks; visit ancient temples, get up close to Asian elephants and generally be wowed by the natural beauty of the north.
