It is not your typical beach holiday, but Northern Thailand is the perfect destination for holiday goers who don’t like to sit still. With its rough and mountainous scenery it has been a popular destination for many adventure seekers. The perfect gateway for an adventurer’s Thai holiday is the country’s northern city of Chiang Mai which leads straight into the Thai jungle. Rest up in this gorgeous city which is the perfect blend of big city and small town both before and after your trek. Just an hour north out of town is a range of stunning jungle, waterfalls and wild rivers, Doi Chiang Dao national park, the Maetang River area and many other natural beauties. To the South West of Chaing Mai lies the Doi Intanon, the country’s tallest mountain with numerous waterfalls and jungle trails. It promises to be an adventure of a lifetime – just watch out for wild elephants and snakes.
