Northern Thailand holidays. Tours & holidays in 2016 & 2017

Chiang Mai, Thailandís second city, is the countryís cultural capital and a great base to help get your Northern Thailand holidays up and running. The city itself is scattered with spa centres, night markets and historic sites with trips outside of the ancient walls showcasing the hills, jungles and industrious river banks which all provide welcome relief from the faster pace of Bangkok and the beaches further south.

Family adventure holiday in Thailand
Wonderful. Travelling in a small group as a family with such a dedicated guide allowed us to see more & interact more. We were able to eat at small road side cafes and at the Phetchaburi night market, and wander around the Sangklaburi floating houses (more)Simon Daniels
We all have different highlights, but generally agree that the day we had a boat trip down the Maekok river, followed by an elephant ride where we got to ride the elephants like a mahout and then spent a night in an Akha village, was our most memorable day. (more)Taru Jones
Most memorable was walking in the rainforest following local guide in his shower cap and Wellingtons and meeting the jungle dwelling Sakai, and swimming in pool at top of huge and remote waterfall. (more)Jane Giles

Life coaching & spa holiday in Chiang Mai, Thailand

Thailand activity holiday, bike, hike & raft
Memorable parts? The first village stay on the hill tribe trek - we were the first group to stay in this village, and the kids were so excited to see us that I think we became a free babysitting service to the whole village for the entire night! Tips? Be prepared to 'rough it' and bring a sense of adventure with you. Many of the nights accommodation involve some form of shared accommodation with the whole group - think home stays, bamboo huts when trekking, house boats, and sleeper... (more)Hannah Gausden

Thailand activity holiday
Memorable parts? Trekking in the hill area around Chang Mai, and staying in the tree house. The kayaking from beautiful beaches and the many historical buildings were also very memorable Tips? Definitely take a rucksack. For those who didn't it was a hassle. We did not really need water bottles as water provision was excellent Local benefits? Yes, especially in the less traditionally tourist areas. This was less soon the beach areas where tourism seemed more well established. Overall... (more)Ruth Leese

Timeless Thailand holiday
The temples in Angkor Wat / Siem Reap were incredible. The roads in Cambodia were pretty memorable as well [though for a completely different reason!]. (more)Candy Owens
Great country, fantastic guide, very friendly and welcoming local people. Would book another trip with same company but especially Thailand if I could get the same guide as she really helped the group come together and made sure everything went as smoothly and was as much fun as possible.

Life coaching and cultural holiday in Chiang Mai
Excellent. This was a memorable (and life changing!) experience. The most memorable part was the actual one to one life coaching sessions and being able to do these at a comfortable and relaxing hotel. (more)Karen Gorham
The most memorable part of the holiday was the life coaching that we had and, a fantastic highlight, the excursion to the elephant sanctuary. (more)Kirsten Stolz
From £745 excluding flights
Holidays to Thailand, Classical Thailand
Memorable parts? The cookery course at Cooking at Home. The railway and war cemetary at Kanchanaburi, elephant training centre. Time to "chill" Tips? Think about booking an extra night before/after the trip. The hotel in Bangkok is close to the markets of Banglampu and Thawet and the best shopping was in Bangkok. Be prepared for the heat/humidity. Up to 40 degrees in March. However this is a very leisurely trip and most of the accommodation was very comfortable so it was more than... (more)deborah lloyd

The most memorable part of this holiday were the great guides. Both Wi and Aor were great company and very knowledgeable. (more)Lorrie Marchington
Most memorable? The warm welcome from all the people we met, the fun everyone was having at the Thai New Year festival, the variety of experience each day, and being able to see so much of the country. (more)Laura Woodhead
