Original Highlight

The overhanging spa at Four Seasons Tented Camp in Chiang Rai took 15 minutes of trekking to reach, but the sublime setting amidst the bamboo forest is well worth it.

A note on price

Thailand is great value for money, and can be done on a real range of budgets. Direct flights to Bangkok cost around £650 per person, and domestic flights are reasonably inexpensive. Super-luxury Thailand holidays that include stays at beautiful tented camps in the jungle and private beach villas on the coast will cost around £10,000 per person. However, choosing quaint boutique hotels means you'll pay more like £1,800 per person. Learn more about our pricing

Chiang Mai & The Golden Triangle

Chiang Mai & The Golden Triangle

Thailand

Chiang Mai and neighbouring Chiang Rai are well worth a visit after the buzz of Bangkok, to visit the temples and old town of Chiang Mai and go elephant trekking in the jungle of remote Chiang Rai. The city of Chiang Mai has a striking mountain backdrop and is the capital of the eponymous province, which borders Burma to the north, whereas Chiang Rai is a slightly more remote area, making it ideal for exploring the beautiful terrain of jungles, rivers and mountains.
