Scenes from Tours in Northern Thailand

Welcome to Wayfarers Travel - Chiang Mai Tours. We have more than 20 years experience in organising and guiding tours in and around Chiang Mai, Northern Thailand. We are a TAT registered tour company based in Chiang Mai and licensed to organise tours and trekking throughout the whole of Thailand.

This season we have made a special effort to include extra tour itineraries so that we cover all the popular areas and activities around Chiang Mai. As always, our one day tours from Chiang Mai, are very popular and we have added some extra itineraries so there's something for everyone.

Please note all our tours are private trips. "Private" meaning that if you book as a group of two you will trek as a group of two. If you book as a group of six you will trek as a group of six. This enables us to guarantee itineraries and departure dates. There is no risk of getting to Chiang Mai to find the trip has been cancelled because there are not enough people to form a group.

If you would like further information or if there is something you can't find on the website, please just contact us by filling in our  Tour Enquiry Form  or drop us an E mail : tours@wayfarersthailand.com

 

 

 

 

 

What's New! - Karen Hilltribe Homestay
Our new program - touring to the Golden Triangle, north of Chiang Mai, for 3 days to enjoy the Golden Triangle area and experience living with the Karen hilltribe.

Day 1 Drive north of Chiang Mai, first stopping at the hotsprings at Mae
Kachan, then continue on to Chiang Rai and continue further north to visit the
border town of Mae Sai. This town is on the border of Thailand and Burma and is the
centre for cross border trade in the area. There are markets on both sides of the border.
Spend some time exploring the border market town. Then we drive a bit further to visit the Golden Triangle , where the three countries of Burma, Laos and Thailand meet on the Mekong River.
Take a longtail boat down the Mekong River (approx. 1hr) to Chiang Saen
and across to a Lao island. We explore the town of Chiang Saen with its ancient temples. We then drive back to Chiang Rai and check into our hotel. (L) (Wiang Inn Hotel)

Day 2 In the morning drive across upper Northern Thailand and visit Mae
Salong, an ethnic Chinese town set in the hills north of Chiang Rai. Mae Salong is
famous for its Chinese atmosphere and produces various Chinese agricultural products, the most famous being its Chinese tea.
Drive down from Mae Salong which gives you views across the hills of upper
Northern Thailand and visit Thaton and the Padong (long neck tribe). This
tribe is famous for the brass rings worn around the womens necks which
give the appearance of a long neck. Then continue on to the Karen
hilltribe village where we spend the night. Accommodation in the village is basic and we spend the night in a Karen hilltribe family house. Your guide will prepare dinner
for you and we spend the night in a village house with a host family.(B,L,D)

Day 3 After breakfast depart from the Karen village and drive south
towards Chiang Mai. On the way back stop at an elephant camp and ride on the elephants for approx. 1hr. Continue driving through the Northern Thailand scenery and stop off at an orchid farm before reaching Chiang Mai. Transfer to your hotel.(B,L)

This tour starts at 8.30am. You are picked up from your hotel by your guide. Drive north of Chiang Mai to Chiang Dao (approx. 1hr) to the elephant camp. At the elephant camp you will see the elephants taking their morning bath and demonstrating some of their skills. Afterwards take an elephant ride for approx. 1 hrs to a Lisu hilltribe village.

After lunch take a bamboo raft trip down the river for approx. 1 hr, admire the scenery and absorb the tranquility as you float down the river. Drive a few kilometers further to a Padong "long neck" tribe village. The women of the tribe wear long brass coils around their neck which actually pushes the collarbone down, giving them the appearance of an extended neck. This tribe has come from Burma as refugees in recent years due to the persecution of the Burmese government. Spend some time in the village and then drive back to Chiang Mai in the afternoon.
