This is your first stop. Yes, really. (Gasp! Excited face! Sqquuuueee!) You'll spend your first three days and nights in Thailand at the Four Seasons Tented Camp Golden Triangle. Which also happens to double as a natural paradise surrounded by majestic mountains within an exquisite bamboo jungle close to some of Thailand’s oldest civilizations. So, you know, it should be ok.
Once the center of all poppy cultivation in Thailand, three countries come together in this legendary location – Thailand, Laos, and Burma, hence "Golden Triangle." Expect scenic views, amazing local architecture and surrounding tea and coffee plantations. You will be able to meet the resident elephants, and supports the Golden Triangle Elephant Foundation. The foundation rescues and saves abused elephants.
It's normal to have visitors like these!! Again, the resort is heavily involved with helping to rescue elephants. The Golden Triangle Asian Elephant Foundation which also partakes in elephant therapy that helps autistic children and assists conservationists to protect the elephants living wild in Thailand.
This is where you'll dine, unless of course you go AWOL and decide what we've planned isn't good enough for you and you get the onsite chef to make you a picnic lunch you can eat on a nature walk in the jungle and/or with elephants (he does that). But you know, your choice.
The second, glorious stop on your ‘Tour of Thailand’ is Four Seasons Chiang Mai, where you’ll further immerse yourself in the lush tropics of Northern Thailand as located on the freaking gorgeous terraced rice fields of the Mae Rim Valley.
Chiang Mai is in the heart of an area once known as the Lanna Kingdom, meaning “the land of a million rice fields.” While its vibrant blend of cultures gives the area a distinctive charm, the landscape is still covered with vivid green rice fields. Chiang Mai is often fondly called the Rose of the North for its beauty and spirit. Expect to pick up exquisite hand-crafted goods and see centuries-old temples. Or maybe have a hot-air balloon adventure?
So many dining options to choose from! This is a culinary experience peeps. Dine in your Sala, privately dine in the Rice Barn or choose to have breakfast in the rice fields. PS – there’s also a cooking school if you want to get your Betty Crocker on.
