Join this yoga journey with The Yoga Shala CT in Thailand where Buddhism has been practiced in ritual splendor for thousands of years. Richly adorned temples within ancient, walled cities are a hallmark of these mountains of Northern Thailand. In the historic cities of Chiang Mai and Chiang Rai, you discover the Lanna culture and experience the benefits of Thai yoga massage. While in bustling Bangkok, you take in the city by land and boat as well as an evening of Siam Niramit theater.
Your accommodation will be in The Rim Resort, Chiang Mai, for four nights, Manee Dheva Resort & Spa, Chiang Rai, for two nights, and Rembrandt Hotel Bangkok, Bangkok, for two nights.
The Rim Resort is a colonial Lanna house in the old town of Chiang Mai. It has a swimming pool surrounded by restaurant, bars, and a nice tropical garden. Modernism and old Thai style are combined.
Manee Dheva Resort & Spa is located in a picturesque valley outside the city of Chiang Rai. Built in typical north Thai style, its rooms are discreetly integrated into the surrounding landscape.
Rembrandt Hotel Bangkok is strategically located in the coolest neighborhood in Bangkok. It is modern with nice swimming pools and some restaurants.
For those who continue on this adventure, flying east again, you will arrive at dawn in the mystical city of Chiang Mai. The old citadel will be your home for a few days. Check in and rest. In the afternoon, you will venture to the hill of this ancient city to visit one of the most revered temples and see the whole region from above. Have a re-welcome dinner (now in Thailand) and return to the hotel. Overnight in Chiang Mai.
Elephant note: At a true elephant sanctuary, there is no riding of the elephants, tricks, or shows, instead, you will see these amazing creatures living undisturbed in their natural environment. This is a rarity in Thailand where most elephants are used either in logging or in the tourist trekking industry. Your visit will teach about these amazing animals while supporting their care and conservation.
What better way to explore this multi-layered city than by foot, metro, and boat! Your "non-traditional" visit through Bangkok will give you a glimpse at the old and new in this diverse capital. In the evening, you will attend the Siam Niramit performance where music, culture, and history are combined in a spectacular production. Farewell dinner is included. Overnight in Bangkok.

This retreat will take place in Chiang Mai, Chiang Rai, and Bangkok, Thailand.
Within this modern, vibrant city lies an ancient history and connection to the Lanna Kingdom. A blissful calm and a relaxed pace are the "inner heartbeat" of this northern city. Elaborate Buddhist temples, street markets, and fabulous food invite you to discover a city that is still firmly Thai in atmosphere and attitude.
Chiang Rai was founded in the 13th century, as part of the Lao-Thai Lanna Kingdom. The ancient city is known for its local markets, exceptional street food, and an abundance of wats (Buddhist temples), including the famous Baan Dam (Black Temple) and Wat Rong Khun (White Temple). Outside the city, a number of national parks afford visitors an up-close opportunity to see and experience Thailand's elephant conservation efforts.
Bangkok, Thailand's capital, is a large city known for ornate shrines and a vibrant street life. The boat-filled Chao Phraya River feeds a network of canals, flowing past the Rattanakosin royal district, home to the opulent Grand Palace and its sacred Wat Phra Kaew. Everywhere you look in Bangkok, you are a witness to a blending of old and new, where the shiny sits right beside the grit. It is these contrasts and contradictions that give the City of Angels its rich personality.
You will be served daily breakfast during the whole trip. This retreat also features four additional meals throughout the duration of your journey.
This trip includes a Thai massage class which will begin on day three. The 3-hour session is a combination of detox, relaxation, and body-balance treatments reflecting the ancient ceremonial protocol of the Lanna culture.
Please book your flight to arrive at Suvarnabhumi Airport (BKK). From here, please take notice you need to take the free shuttle bus to Don Mueang International Airport (DMK), which is where you will take your domestic flight to Chiang Mai.
