Its difficult to fit all the varied experiences of northern Thailand into just one week, but we found a way. Through a combination of flights, boats and the omnipresent tuk tuk, travellers need not sacrifice cultural activities and inspiring sites on this comfort-focused trip. Experience golden monasteries, cooking classes and thriving night markets as well as the sobering ‘Death Railway’, where legions of POWs met a cruel fate in World War II. Prepare to return home a different person.
