OPTION 1: Thailand Yoga Retreat, Koh Samui + Chiang Mai Add On
Yoga & Adventure Retreat May 6-17th 2018
12 days- 11 Nights . Your trip begins with the description under option 1 on the white sand beaches of Koh Samui. On Sunday May 13th, leave Koh Samui and fly to the “northern capital” of Thailand, Chiang Mai. Immensely spiritual and full of rich history, Chiang Mai is an incredibly special city and a haven for those seeking grounding. Hundreds of temples and monasteries stand in and around Chiang Mai, and you need only travel a short distance from the city limits to be surrounded by rice paddies, tour villages that have not changed much since the 14th century, and immerse in the beautiful culture of the area. Boasting some of the most delicious food in the world, old world, outdoor markets, and so much to see, Chiang Mai is a favorite among travelers of Southeast Asia (and of your teacher, Jessica).
ALL INCLUSIVE: This package includes: round trip airfare from JFK, airfare from Koh Samui to Chiang Mai, ground transportation to and from the retreat center, 3 meals per day (Koh Samui), breakfast each day (Chiang Mai), accommodations, daily yoga and meditation classes (Koh Samui), and excursions.
EXCURSIONS INCLUDED: Ko Samui: Temple tour, waterfall hike and tour, jungle zip lining and sunrise stand up paddle board in the Gulf of Thailand. Chiang Mai: elephant sanctuary tour, hands on elephant experience, and temple tour and learning.
If you require a flight from another major airport or if you would like to take care of your own flights, please email firstname.lastname@example.org for pricing. Flights from Koh Samui to Chiang Mai must be included as a package.
