An alternative approach to the classic combination of Bangkok, the north of Thailand and a beach. On our two week 'Alternative Thailand' you will spend several days trekking in the hills in northern Thailand. Stay in the fantastic Lisu Lodge just outside Chiang Mai, which provides eco-friendly accommodation and runs in-depth excursions in conjunction with the local villagers. Continue on to Pai and Mae Hong Son, where you will spend several days trekking and rafting through the spectacular countryside. Return to Bangkok and take in an exiting night-time tour of the city before flying on to finish up with 4 nights at the beach in Koh Phangan - once a hang out for backpackers but now fast becoming one of Thailand's hippest beach destinations.
