Your trip begins at 10am in Chiang Mai in Northern Thailand. Due to this early start we recommend flying into Chiang Mai International Airport the day before and booking an extra night of accommodation in the city. Your trip ends back in Chiang Mai on day 5. If you plan to fly home on your final day, you should not book a flight that departs before 7pm, to allow plenty of time for transfer and check-in.
