Backyard Travel Launches A New Cultural Adventure: Tribes, Art And History

January 22, 2018 Tour Operator No Comments Email Email

Backyard Travel, the online boutique tour operator specializing in insider tours throughout Asia, today announced the launch of the new Tribes, Art and History: Thailand and Laos Insight tour. Aimed at immersing travelers in the more intriguing and insightful parts of Northern Thailand and Laos, this 12-day, 11-night tour showcases the region’s diverse cultures, its pristine nature and the day-to-day of its region’s indigenous tribes.

Starting off in the beautiful Northern Thai city of Chiang Rai, the tour launches on a creative note with a tour of the local arts scene. Travelers then head into the mist-wreathed peaks that line the border of Myanmar for a glimpse of Burmese culture and time within an Akha village. Next, a Mekong River cruise transports travelers into rural Laos for a visit to an elephant sanctuary, before veering well off the tourist trail into lush jungle to explore more hill tribe culture. A bicycle tour of Luang Prabang, a visit to a bear sanctuary and a trip to the stunning Kuang Si Waterfalls are also highlights of this insightful and adventurous trip.

“With high demand for tours that go ‘off the grid’, we crafted a tour that fully immerses travelers in remote societies and environments stripped back to their barest elements,” says Maeve Nolan, General Manager of Backyard Travel. “The hills of Northern Thailand and Laos are a treasure trove for culture and nature lovers, so this trip balances time spent in hill tribe villages with slow-paced city tours, giving travelers the perfect mix of arts, culture and history.”   

The Tribes, Art and History: Thailand and Laos Insight tour, is available from US$ 3,140 per person, excluding flights.
