Our journey starts in Bangkok with an exploration of its fascinating city temples. We then head north to the Golden Triangle, an area encompassing Thailand, Laos and Myanmar, famed for its historic drug trade. From here we enjoy a leisurely boat ride to see local life for Thai and Laos people along the border.
We also explore nearby hilltribe villages such as the ethnic Karen and Lahu (Muser) along the banks of the River Kok. Guests can also voyage through the overgrown forests on the bank of an elephant just as many locals have done for centuries before visiting the stunning White Temple (Wat Rong Khun).
In Mae Sa Valley we visit an orchid farm named Sai Nam Phung. The manicured gardens here are truly stunning. The area is also known for its local handicraft factories, where we can see lacquer work, silk fabrics and traditional paper umbrella being made.
