PeopleThis tour focuses on involvement with local communities throughout the north, center and south of Thailand, offering a varied journey, highlighting the cultural differences and traditions to be found across the country, whilst ensuring profits go directly to the locals involved in your trip. The experience is immersive, adventurous and educational, improving cultural exchange and giving back to those that share their stories with you along the way.
Throughout this trip you will visit local villages, farms and plantations around Chiang Mai, plant trees with Herbal Plant Nursery Project, stay with remote hill-tribes at Lanjia Lodge, learning about their traditions and way of life, and visit the rural communities around Cheow Larn Lake.
We recommend buying crafts, home wares and gifts from selected organizations that we can suggest for you, so you can help support local communities and their skills and you also know that your money is directly benefiting the local economy.
