Itinerary

Day 1 : Your experience starts from the train station in Bangkok. You have to go to New Road Guest House the day before the trip starts to receive your train tickets. The Service Guides at New Road Guest House will explain the exact train departure and instructions on how to get to the train station. The expected departure from Bangkok is approximately 18.30 in the evening.
The train ride from Bangkok to Chiang Mai can be a very joyful experience. Often you will find happy people and a kind of party atmosphere in the restaurant attached to the train. Enjoy the slow ride and a good nights sleep. When you wake up (the sun rises around 06.30) you will see a beautiful and green landscape flowing by as you slowly move towards Chiang Mai.
Please note: The train is often between 2-3 hours delayed

Day 2 : When you arrive to Chiang Mai train station a driver will be waiting for you with a sign with your name on it. He will take you on a short ride from the train station to ECO resort where you will stay the following 3 nights.
When you arrive your room might not be ready until 14.00. If so, you can store your luggage and use the swimming pool to relax and splash around. The resort has many facilities to keep you occupied. Remember also to swing by the Visit Beyond Service Office for a bit of inspiration, a friendly chat or that essential piece of advice.
A magical tour of Chiang Mai is on the program for tonight where you will explore urban Chiang Mai on 2 wheels. The old city never sleeps as you ride through small back roads and alleys, a perfect way to see the lives of the local people. You will visit a tranquil park where locals practice Tai Chi. The park is surrounded by ancient temples with their golden spires illuminating the night. You also pass by a night market with various types of delicious local food to sample. The tour departs from the starting point in the old city at 18:00 so we recommend to leave ECO Resort at 17:00-17:30. Please ask the Travel Advisor in the Go Beyond Office for directions.
The tour ends around 21:00 in the old city and you are free to continue the exploration on your own.

You are free to explore the city as you please, but be sure to be back at ECO Resortin time, as you will be picked up between 16.00 and 16.30 for your evening cooking course. You get to choose 4 of your favourite Thai dishes and then venture off to the local market to help shop for the right ingredients. When back at the cooking station you will be guided through the preparation and cooking by the funny chef. After a nice and well-deserved self-cooked dinner you have time to explore the night market or go back to the resort to relax. (B, D)
Day 4 : Today you have to wake up early to be ready for the adventure zip lining. Pick up is between 06.30 and 07.00. If you want breakfast a “grab-and-go” breakfast box can be arranged in the reception the night before (please remember to arrange by yourself). It is about 1 hour drive to get to the starting point of the trip. It is set in a local village that grows coffee for their living. Half of the staff employed is from the local village.
You will be instructed on and fitted with equipment – then it is off to the jungle and of you go zip lining through the forest canopy. Awaiting you are 28 stations (the longest one ranges a tremendous 900 meters1), 4 abseils and even a flying skateboard. You are guaranteed a lot of fun on this adventure.
