While we’ve embraced Australian holidays with gusto (have you seen our backyard?), our minds still wander to distant lands — yearning for our next global adventure. Which is why we couldn’t resist sharing the new cultural experiences at Thailand’s magical Four Seasons Tented Camp Golden Triangle.
The destination itself is wish-list material. The lush jungles of the Golden Triangle span three nations (Thailand, Myanmar, and Laos) with the Ruak River flowing between the borders. The Four Seasons hillside camp is tucked away in far northern Thailand, with safari-style tents designed to capture the beautiful nostalgia of yesteryear with luxury accoutrements including timber hots tubs, private pools, and a day spa hidden in a bamboo forest.
Guests who ‘glamp’ here can now also connect more deeply with the region. “With our all-inclusive two, three and four night adventure packages, we give guests an opportunity to truly immerse in the local culture,” explains Camp Manager, Tobias Emmer. “These new experiences are a mix of adventure, cultural exploration and relaxation, tailormade for your style of travel.”
Our pick for adventure-loving couples is the hillside bicycle tour which weaves through lush green paddy fields, pineapple and rubber plantations, and a teak forest. “The serenity of the local villages in the Golden Triangle is second to none, especially Chiang Saen where the Camp is located,” says Tobias. “Look for the local farmers as they go about their daily routines, and for some stunning views of the mountains beyond.”
You can also connect with the local life (and pick up a few pointers) as you skim over the Ruak River in a traditional longtail boat on a fishing charter. Or take it slow picnicking in a lush bamboo jungle or dining at a secluded riverside locale.
Four Seasons have also extended their renowned hospitality with contactless service via an award-winning App and Chat. “While the experience may look different, it will feel the same,” says Tobias. “We look forward to welcoming you – with the utmost care.”
