Remote Lands, Inc

Bangkok, Thailand To Chiang Mai, Thailand

Valid for Departures Now Through: 18 Mar 2019


Day 1
Phrae, Thailand
Bangkok, Thailand
Heuan Na Na Boutique Hotel Lunch, Dinner

Upon arrival in Phrae, your guide will greet you and escort you to a local restaurant for lunch, before embarking on the tour. This afternoon, you will visit Phae Muang Phi. The park is full of small-to-medium size geological formations of various shapes and sizes. Estimated to be as old as 30,000 years, the mushroom-shaped rock pillars are the result of subsidence and erosion over the centuries. Muang Phi translated means ‘ghost town’ as the park is the subject of many local fables. Return to Phrae and check in to the Heuan Na Na Boutique Hotel for a good night’s rest.

Day 2
Lampang, Thailand
Phrae, Thailand
Auangkham Resort Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

 The day begins with a short tour of the walled city of Phrae, known as the Teak capital of Thailand a century past. Once a logging hub of the British and Danish, foreign business withdrew when resources ran out. Next, visit Khum Chao Luang, residence of Phrae’s former ruler. Built in 1892, the architectural style reflects a fusion of European and Thai influence, a remnant of the teak logging past. Following lunch, visit some of Phrae’s most fascinating temples – Wat Luang and Wat Phra That Cho Hae. Spend the night at Auangkham Resort, a boutique hotel in the center of Lampang.

Day 3
Chiang Mai, Thailand
Chiang Mai, Thailand
Lampang, Thailand
None Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

 Prepare for a full day of sightseeing, beginning with stops at the Moungngwezin House and the magnificent Wat Phra Kaeo Don Tao, a stunning 15th-century temple. Sit back in a horse-drawn cart and take in the sights of Lampang. Along the narrow streets, we will see Burmese-style temple, Wat Si Rong Muang. Enjoy lunch along the River Wang at the Riverside Restaurant before visiting Wat Phrathat Lampang Luang, one of the most magnificent temples in Northern Thailand. Heading toward Chiang Mai, stop at the vibrant Thung Kwian Market and Friends of Asian Elephant Foundation. The tour comes to an end as we reach Chiang Mai.

The Remote Lands Guides were excellent. The cars used for transportation were roomy and clean. The hotels were 5 star and their attention to detail was over the top. There was only perfection from the people we met and it was also comforting to know that our trip was being carefully monitored by Remote Lands supervisors every step of the way. We would recommend Remote Lands to anyone needing exceptional service in Asia.

We had 4 different guides (one in each city) and they were all wonderful. We appreciated that they let us be flexible and make game time decisions. We skipped a lot of the "touristy" sites and felt we had a more authentic experience.

Excellent. Guides at each location were friendly, personable and knowledgeable. Want to share a special thank you to Nadia Thakul (Bangkok) & Mr. Buntheun (Siem Reap). After missing my connecting flight from Shanghai to Siem Reap, I called Mr. Buntheun to let him know I was not able tomake it to Siem Reap as planned and for him to notify the hotel. I was flying instead to Phnom Phen and would notify him later of my flight to Siem Reap. Upon arrival in Phnom Phen as I was filling out my visa on arrival form, a Remote Land guide greeted me and told me that Mr. Buntheun had notified the Bangkok office of my predicament and sent him to greet me. As you can imagine being in a foreign land in an unplanned location he was a sight for sore eyes. He got me in contact with Nadia who then took care of the rest of the accommodations (hotel, transportation to/from airport and flight from Phnom Phen to Siem Reap the next day). Assistance provided by Remote Lands got us to Siem Reap on time.
