Adventures Within Reach is delighted to introduce a brand new 12-day Best of Thailand adventure. The itinerary includes
- Fantastic off-the-beaten path touring
- The classic night train to Chiang Mai
- 3 day rainforest trek
- The best temples
- Chanting monks
- Sampling street food with your guides
- 3 days on the beach at the end for R&R
The best time to visit Thailand (in general) is November through February, the “cool” dry season. Since this trip includes a trek, note that it can get very hot (35 degree C) in March into May, while June is commonly the first ‘rainy’ season month, which can last until October.
The trek on this trip is ideal for physically fit, active travelers especially those who have trekked previously in culturally rich, backcountry destinations like those found in Nepal, Peru, Africa, India, Bhutan and the like: the hiking is rugged, but the scenery and culture are simply amazing. If you enjoyed those treks, you’ll love northern Thailand!
Homestays add another wonderful cultural element on this trip, allowing you in-depth encounters with local people. We realize, however, that not every traveler is into a multi-day trek, so if that’s the case for you, please let us know: we can easily adapt the itinerary for you. It’s easy to arrange instead some easier day hikes, an elephant experience, cooking classes, market touring, free days in Chiang Mai and the like.
You’re free to pick the class of hotels you’d prefer, and these can range from the popular mid-range category to 4-star luxury to 5-star elite properties. Solo travelers are encouraged to contact us for special solo prices, but with 2 people or more, the trip is very affordable. We provide a special price break if your group is 4 or more!
Let us know if you have any questions — we would love to help you experience a real Thailand adventure!
