Life-changing 8-day Thai tour

Yes, it’s winter, and yes, that usually means all us Aussies flock to the sunnier shores of Thailand.

But, there’s no need to do the usual tourist trail anymore, as STA Travel is offering an eight-day tour and fly package from just $1099 that will see you trekking to the remote regions of the culture-rich country.

From the luxury of Bangkok’s malls and gleaming high-rises, you’ll head north to Thailand’s hills where you will eat and sleep with the hilltribes!

Tucked away in the hills of northern Thailand is where the most colourful and unchanged traditional communities can be found. Trek through forests and rural terrains to visit some of these diverse hilltribe villages; often, each will have their own unique language, clothing style, and belief system that differs significantly from those of neighbouring tribes.

Leaving the villages by bamboo raft, you’ll also get the chance to eat amazing local food, check out some incredible temples, shop up a storm in the local markets and unwind from your trip with a relaxing Thai massage. How good!

STA Travel’s Chief Experience Offers (CEOs) will help you get off the beaten path – but you’ll stay flexible by being able to choose the activities you’re super keen to do.
