We are a family of 5, including 3 teenage girls. We have been to Thailand a couple of times before, mostly Bangkok, beaches and also had a fantastic week in Chang Mai. We are heading back in January 2014 and would like to explore more of Northern Thailand. I am happy to hire a car if that is recommended. Very interested in immersing ourselves in the culture, hill tribes, elephants, beautiful scenery, bush walks and relaxation. We prefer to settle somewhere for a few days and get to know it than race to a new destination each day. We would love some help with organizing an itinerary. We plan to fly in and out of Chang Mai. I look forward to hearing from the experts!
