Itinerary

DAY LOCATION(S) HOTEL MEALS DESCRIPTION
Day 1
Chiang Mai, Thailand
Chiang Mai, Thailand
Four Seasons Tented Camp Golden Triangle, Thailand Dinner

Arrive at Four Season’s camp pier and continue on a traditional long-tail boat to the Luxury Camp.

(Note: It is recommended to arrive in Chiang Rai either in the morning or in the early afternoon, because the boat trip runs no later than 17:00. But should it occur, there is an alternative route to the camp by land transfer. Also, during the dry season when the tide level is low, the trip to the camp will also be by land.)

In the evening enjoy a Sundowner, in true camp tradition. Savour the magnificent sunset and spend the next few minutes winding down with an evening cocktail. Beverages of choice are served, accompanied by local and western snacks.

Dinner served at Nong Yao Restaurant, an open-air thatched-roof pavilion by the riverbank, with rustic hardwood floors, Nong Yao Restaurant offers Thai, Laotian, Burmese and western cuisine. In keeping with the camp's atmosphere, guests have the option to dine together at a long family-style table, seated in suede chairs, or privately, at separate tables. A bar area, complete with a double-sided fireplace in the middle, is perfect for pre-dinner drinks.

Overnight in the luxury Four Seasons Tented Camp.

This agency provided us with drivers, tour guides and transfers to/from our hotels in Bangkok and Ho Chi Minh City, as well as expedited visa service in Vietnam. Everything was handled seamlessly. We literally stumbled off the plane and from that point we were taken care of perfectly. Our tour guides were excellent, with outstanding English language skills, and very willing to work with us to create an ideal itinerary.

We had a wonderful trip to Thailand! All of the guides through EXO travel were top-notch, especially JJ and Lek. Both went out of their way to ensure the trip was customized to our needs. We had the right blend of culture, excursions and relaxation. Our trip was eventful, exciting and a trip of a lifetime!
