Tour ancient temples in Thailand’s misty, mountainous north
Once the capital of the ancient Lanna Kingdom and now Thailand's second largest city, Chiang Mai is an absolute must for any holiday in Thailand. You’ll discover fine temples within the city’s ancient walls and be able to use this atmospheric city as your base when you explore the undulating hills nearby, where many ethnic tribes make their home.
Situated in a misty and mountainous region near the borders with Myanmar and Laos, Chiang Mai is known as Thailand’s Rose of the North. During your Chiang Mai holiday, you’ll discover how utterly unique this region’s mysterious terrain really is. The pleasant year-round climate and generous spirit of its residents make Chiang Mai a compelling destination for those hoping to get a genuine feel for Thai culture.
You can visit a philanthropy project that A&K supports. The Wildflower Home provides a safe haven for Thai mothers in crisis situations. Your guide will explain how the home provides medical care for women and children, teaching them the life and job skills they need to improve their lives through mushroom farming and production. This is your chance to meet the people your visit to Thailand can help and see what a difference responsible tourism can make.
