DETAILED ITINERARY:

CHIANG MAI (-/L/- )
07:45 AM You can either meet the group at the Chiang Mai Gate Hotel at 07:45, or we will pick you up from your hotel between 08:00 and 08:30, (note – pick
up’s can only be provided for hotels inside the Chiang Mai ‘middle ring road’) and then transfer by minivan to our base for the day nestled in the Mae Wang valley.

09:30AM (Approx.)
On arrival in Mae Wang, our team will introduce you to your Tuk Tuks and begin your driving training. No problem if you don’t want to drive a Tuk
Tuk; you can enjoy the joys of nature’s air-conditioning in in the back.
NOTE: all drivers must be aged 18 or over and hold a valid manual driving license.

10:30AM (Approx.)
The Tuk Tuks are pretty easy to master and once everyone is feeling comfortable behind the wheel we’ll head through tiny rural roads, snaking through farming villages and past rural Temples. One of our guides always drives the lead Tuk Tuk making sure that you don’t lose your way and no-one is tempted to go too fast! With frequent stops to explore and, importantly, make sure everyone has a good opportunity to drive, you’ll get a great insight into real rural life in Northern Thailand.

11:30AM (Approx.)
By late morning we’ll arrive at the elephant home. After being introduced to the elephants, who have been taken out of a life of trekking, help the mahouts feed them.
Lunch is a feast of traditional Thai food, adjacent to the elephants giving more time for observation

1:00PM (Approx.)
After lunch walk with the mahouts and their elephants (NOTE: No elephant riding is allowed) through the local countryside to the river where you can help the mahouts wash the elephants – a fantastic experience for you and the elephants!

3:00PM (Approx.)
Now it’s time to enjoy floating along the local river on a traditional bamboo raft.

4:OOPM (Approx.)
Jump back into your Tuk Tuk and head back down the valley enjoying your last moments behind the wheel of a real Thailand ‘icon’. Be sure to have
your camera out to catch the surprise of the local community when they see you driving your very own Tuk Tuk!
