Venture to northern Thailand and the Golden Triangle where “one-of-a-kind experience” takes on a whole new meaning. Head to one of Chiang Rai’s luxury lodges for hands-on excursions for adventures of a different kind. Ride elephant back through the jungle atop one of Thailand’s majestic animals for a true understanding of “local transportation.” Your experience will be completely hands-on as you spend your day as an elephant trainer or “mahout” for the day.
With culturally rich activities paving your way through the region, there are many ways to get to know the local way of life. Head on a long-tail boat up the Mekong River towards Laos or visit the ornate temples of Chiang Rai. For a truly immersive retreat, book an overnight stay with one of the local hill tribes, found deep within the jungle.
Whether you are trekking on an elephant through mountainous northern Thailand, journeying through the jungles of Cambodia to the ancient Angkor temples, or whitewater rafting on the rivers in Bali, the region’s adventures are limitless.
