The highlight of the tour is cruising along small countryside roads with hardly any traffic stopping at interesting local sights without having to worry about city traffic. We will pass through traditional villages with wooden houses on stilts, ride along small roads through the rice fields and stop at a lake surrounded by beautiful mountains. Encounters like water buffalos crossing the street or children surprised by the unusual sight of foreigners in their village are to be expected.

We drive to Mae Wang. Here we visit the local market and then go to a Shan village where we have lunch. Then we walk to a Karen village. During the trek there will be hardly any flat parts in the route. The paths that we walk on are used by local people. Sometimes the path is overgrown and the guide uses his machete. We walk through dense forest, open areas, plantations of mountain people and sometimes along or through rivers. Total walking time can be adjusted from 1 to 3 hours. We walk to the starting point of the rafting trip . We take the bamboo rafts about one hour on the river. After that we go back to Chiang Mai where we arrive in the afternoon .

Day 06 (B)

If you want you can cross the border to catch a glimpse of the Burmese life. Then to the infamous Golden Triangle on the Mekong river. From a viewpoint you can see how Thailand, Laos and Burma converge here. Via the old city of Chiang Saen with its ruins we travel back to Chiang Rai.

Day 07 (B)

Transfer to the airport and a 1 hour flight to Bangkok where our driver is waiting at the airport to bring us to our hotel.  The transfer to the hotel takes about 45 minutes depending on the traffic. Stay at Royal Hotel (this is a simple hotel in a very good location just off Khao San Road backpacker district ). Then you can relax from the long journey. For example, you can relax by the hotel pool whilst children play in the pool. Or visit Southeast Asia 's largest aquarium at Siam Ocean World. Here live more than 30 000 animals that stare curious at you from behind the glass. Sharks with a row of gleaming teeth, slippery jellyfish and lobsters with huge claws , they live here.

Day 08  Citytour Bangkok (B)

After breakfast you go together with the guide to visit Chinatown. You walk through a maze of alleyways and visit the Chinese market and the famous flower market where every day countless flowers are traded. Then we walk towards the river, first you will travel by local boat on the Chao Praya River. You'll see huge hotels and skyscrapers, but also beautiful temples. You continue your way by longtail boat. In Bangkok there are many canals that are called in Thai "Klongs". Many people live in wooden houses on stilts along the Klongs. On the porches are children busy playing. When the kids throw fish food in the water you will be amazed at the huge number of catfish swimming in the brownish water to the surface. The last boat is exciting: a so-called rocket boat. This "James Bond boat" is very fast and takes you to the narrowest klongs. Feel the wind blowing through your hair as you whiz along green plantations with coconuts. After this exciting cruise we take a longtail boat that takes you back to a pier near the hotel. The rest of the afternoon is at leisure.

Day 09: Bangkok free day (B)

Today is at leisure. Explore the city tuk-tuk, pay a visit to the Grand Palace, one of the temples or visit one of the many stores. Or make it a leisure day and visit the fish spa, where dozens of little fish nibble gently at your feet. And for the afternoon, there is obviously the pool to splash. Another fun way to explore the city is the famous bike ride through unknown Bangkok. For children there are special children's bikes. If they are too young, they can sit in a bicycle seat. While cycling you get to places where you would not go on your own. Together with the guide you explore the narrow streets, Thai houses, markets and temples in this lively district. By ferry boat we then cross the Chao Phraya river to the Thonburi district. Here the bike tour goes where you go back in time, far from the skyscrapers in the city. Here it is quiet and green, quite a contrast. The route is taken at a comfortable pace and several stops are made
