About The Event
Take to the handlebars and travel across northern Thailand like the locals – in your very own tuk tuk! After some initial tuk tuk driver training you embark on our three-wheeled discovery of this colourful country. This 8-day challenge takes in temples, forests, traditional minority villages in the hills, national parks and waterfalls as you ride from the awe-inspiring Chiang Mai. This adventure features the very best that Thailand has to offer for those prepared to step away from tourist trails and travel like the locals. It isn’t just fantastic sights that you’ll enjoy along the way, but also wonderful experiences – rafting downstream on bamboo rafts, exploring caves, picnic lunch by a waterfall, camping in the mountains and enjoying traditional feasts. This isn’t just dipping a toe in the water, it’s total immersion in the wonderful and exciting culture of this South-East Asian gem.
Who can take part? Anyone who would like to drive the tuk tuks needs to have a driving licence and an International Driving Permit (IDP). An ideal candidate for the trip would be someone who enjoys being out of their comfort zone and trying something new. Adventure travel involves an element of the unexpected so do not expect standards to be the same as you are used to at home. Remote areas are sometimes unpredictable (be it because of group pace, weather conditions, local bureaucracy, or other factors) and itineraries may be altered to allow for this. For you to get the most out of your challenge it is important that you are flexible, positive, and eager to take on all the challenges that arise. Suitable fitness preparation before departure forms part of this.
