Project Itinerary

Monday

Your day begins with breakfast at the Singburi centre before transferring to Chum Saeng where you’ll have lunch. An introductory meeting will teach you about the do’s and don’ts to follow during your stay. After dinner, there’ll be a small welcome party with Thai BBQ food. An overnight stay at the homestay will be comfortable but not luxurious as it has a fan, cold water and no wi-fi.

Tuesday

After breakfast at the accommodation, your morning will be filled with a traditional Thai farming experience. Here you’ll learn about the produce and the traditional techniques used to cultivate it. You’ll return to the homestay for lunch before getting a train from Chum Saeng to Uttaradit. Be prepared for a 4 hour long journey with no air conditioning. After checking into the hotel in Uttaradit, the afternoon will include a visit to the Hero Monument, an important local landmark which gives an insight into the history of the area. You’ll have dinner at a local Thai restaurant and then settle for the night at a hotel in Uttaradit which has hot water, air conditioning and Wi-fi.

Wednesday

Staying in Uttaradit today, you will take breakfast at Tungkalo school and then carry out some teaching activities during the morning. This will be a fantastic opportunity to give a little back to the area while learning something about the culture. Following lunch at a local Thai restaurant, the afternoon will see you visiting Tungyang Temple and a local shopping centre. At the temple, the Monks will educate you in Buddhism and, in return,  you’ll be expected to assist them with some cleaning tasks around the temple. After exploring the shopping centre, you’ll have dinner there and return to the hotel to spend the night.

Thursday

After breakfast, you’ll be catching a train for a 3 hour long journey to Lampang. Again, the train has no air conditioning but you will be treated to some stunning scenery, including some majestic mountains. On checking into the hotel in Lampang, you’ll have time to freshen up and then go for lunch at a local Thai restaurant. Another visit to a Buddhist temple in the afternoon will teach you more about the fascinating customs of the religion. Again, you’ll be able to repay the monks’ kindness by assisting in the cleaning of the temple and the surrounding areas. You’ll then move on to a local market where you’ll be able to mingle with locals and find some traditional Thai souvenirs. Dinner will be eaten at the market before returning to your hotel, which has hot water, air conditioning and wi-fi.

Friday

A wonderful opportunity to witness conservation work awaits you after a traditional breakfast at a local Thai restaurant. The Elephant Conservation Centre in Lampang will tug at your heart strings as you find out about the plight of the rescued elephants and the care that they receive from the people who work there. As Lampang has a number of cultural landmarks, there’ll be some sightseeing after lunch. A traditional Thai dinner at a restaurant in Lampang will set you up for your train journey to Chiang Mai. A 2 hour and 15 minute journey with the benefit of air conditioning. At the hotel in Chiang Mai, you’ll be able to relax and unwind with the luxury of hot water, air conditioning and wi-fi.

Saturday

A local restaurant in Chiang Mai is the perfect setting for a traditional breakfast before a visit to Doi Pui villages where you’ll be immersed in the culture of the Hill tribe people. After being educated about their lifestyle, you’ll be taken to visit Doi Suthep Mountain and Wat Phrathat temple. Lunch will be eaten in Chiang Mai at a local restaurant and the afternoon is yours to spend as you wish exploring this bustling city. In the early evening, you’ll be collecting your luggage and heading to the bus station where you’ll have dinner. The overnight bus, with air conditioning, will take you to Singburi.
