Our cheerful ground crew will be on hand to whisk you away to our gorgeous Shewe Wana Boutique Hotel & Spa for relaxation before our exciting program begins!

Shewe Wana Hotel Chiang Mai

Days 2-4

Journey to the clouds 

After our refreshing and bountiful breakfast of tropical fruit and fresh cooked local delicacies, we head out in our air conditioned mini van toward awe inspiring Chiang Dao, Thailand's "City of Stars"

We will leave the hustle and bustle of Chiang Mai behind as we take a brief journey north, passing rich rice patties and fields of banana, bamboo and fragrant flowers. 

Upon arrival at our award winning Marisa Resort and spa, surrounded by glorious mountains and nestled in hundreds of acres of lush, tropical paradise. After lunch we will visit Borderless Friendship Basecamp an international educational non-profit working to better the lives of underserved children in Northern Thailand. The next few days we will enjoy a rich and exciting program featuring a 4 course, hands on, Thai cooking class hosted by Master Chef Neung. A glorious hike to visit five different hill tribes and of course plenty of time to relax and unwind in the pristine and gorgeous grounds of the hotel. 

Only 3 Spots Left! 

Days 5-7

Elephant Nature Park

You've dreamed of this your whole life! You've seen the videos online now is your opportunity to experience first hand, the healing magic of world renowned elephant sanctuary, Elephant Nature Park! Founded by "Elephant Whisperer" Lek Chailert, Elephant Nature Park is home to many elephants rescued from appalling situations in trekking, tourism and begging. During the next three days we will have ample opportunity to spend time with these soulful creatures and visit ENP's fabulous and newly built "Cat Kingdom" and "Dog Kingdom". Your days will be filled with light volunteering, more mouthwatering food that you could possibly eat (the buffet at ENP is legendary) while at night, you will fall asleep to the sounds of elephants snoring beneath your bungalow window.

Days 8-9

Where the Elephants Dream!

After our unforgettable experience at Elephant Nature Park, we will head back to Chiang Dao and the luxurious surroundings of the Marisa Spa for a chance to relax and absorb our glorious experience. The last few days will end on a high note with visit to a natural hot spring and waterfall hike, be sure to bring your bathing suit! Our last night ends with a bang at our farewell feast and traditional Thai dance party!
