A unique encounter with Thailand’s Royal beasts / 10 nights

Journey to the tropical reaches of Northern Thailand, the seat of the ancient Siamese kingdoms, and the battlefields of the opium warlords. Discover the secrets of lesser-visited Chiang Rai’s mystical forests and those of its indigenous, revered Thai elephants.

You’ll live like Thai royalty in a tranquil and luxurious villa on the Mae Kwok River, close to a bustling town of night-markets and temples, begging to be explored. Deeper into the jungle, you’ll train to be a mahout at a royal elephant foundation, spending the day interacting with and caring for your new friends, before joining them on an unforgettable trek into the Golden Triangle. You’ll then take your newfound skills to Bangkok, where if the timing is right (in this case, March each year), you’ll rub shoulders with Thailand’s elite, as our VIP guest at the Anantara Kings Cup, the much lauded elephant-polo festival. But even for the rest of the year, Bangkok is utterly enjoyable; a city full of delights, and Asia’s most hedonistic playground.

You’ll be ready for some down-time after Bangkok, so we’ll take you to unwind at one of Thailand’s exclusive Southern beach paradises – there are many to choose from and we’ve personally road-tested them all, so we can help you choose a resort that is perfect for you. We guarantee you’ll be well rested, relaxed and recharged, ready for home.
