4 nights/5 days for $600 per person shared room or $750 for private room. 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 biking and kayak adventure. The 2 hour biking tour features stops at temples and local markets. You only need basic biking skills as we are doing a leisurely tour. 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!

Both the $100 deposit and final balance paid within 60 days are NON REFUNDABLE. If you do cancel and I can find another person to take your spot I will refund you your monies paid. Pre payments are required months in advance to secure hotel rooms and tours. Everyone who attends a You Can't Steal My Happy Trip is required to sign an electronic liability release form. Trip insurance is also highly recommended. There are several companies that offer this insurance and it's usually very inexpensive.
