4 nights/5 days at $650 per person for a shared room (2 persons to a room) or $850 for your own private room. This trip can be paired up with our Cambodia trip which takes place the following week January 17th-22nd. I have secured 14 rooms at the Bed Hotel which is located in the heart of Chiang Mai. Shopping, restaurants, and lots of cool places are literally around the corner. The hotel is ranked as one of the top places to stay on TripAdvisor, and the staff is always wearing their smiles! This package includes two exciting tours. The first tour will take us to an elephant rescue center where you will learn about the local elephants. You will get to feed, and learn about these rescued elephants. The tour ends at the river where you will have the chance to swim and bathe your elephant. Please note we are visiting an elephant sanctuary not a trick show. The elephants we spend the day with are loved and looked after by caring locals. Most of them use to work at logging camps in near bye Burma. Our second tour is a full day countryside adventure featuring bamboo rafting, swimming in waterfalls and a visit to the elephant poo paper elephant center. If you enjoy laughing, dancing, exploring, and adventure then this trip is for you. Please no drama queens or kings!!! Bring a friend or family member, but make sure they are fun!
