Meet a driver at your hotel and travel to a local market to join the bustle of morning shoppers, visiting stalls selling clothing, food, and locally made products that make for great souvenirs.
Next, head into the forest for an hourlong ziplining experience; listen for the sound of Northern Thailand’s diverse birdlife as you fly from tree to tree. From there, travel to a Karen community, where some women still practice the tradition of extending their necks using stacks of brass rings. Visiting the village with a Karen-speaking guide is a great way to get insight into life in the village, and you can also shop for distinctive Karen handicrafts here.
Pause for lunch in a local restaurant and then continue to Bua Thong Waterfalls, a series of cascades that tumble into pools—perfect for rock scrambling and swimming.
End the tour with drop-off at your hotel.
