Climb up to Doi Suthep, famous for its wonderful copper-plated chedi and sweeping views out over the countryside. Learn about the Asian Elephant, and go for a short ride.
Nicknamed the Dawn of Happiness, Sukhothai still recalls Siam's golden age with its superb statues, marvellous monuments and lotus flowers in full bloom. Be bowled over by baby elephants at the Elephant Conservation Centre and take a ride on a full-grown adult.

Most of our trips require a compulsory local payment, which is part of the contract with you (the customer) and OUT Adventures. This amount is the final payment for your trip and is to be paid in the specified currency, in cash to your leader upon arrival. The local payment is non-refundable, and is considered part of the total trip payment.
It is expensive to transfer funds to many countries - so by making a Local Payment you help us keep your costs low.
The Local Payment is used for paying for local services such as hotels and transport.
No, as the money is used to pay for local services these cannot be paid elsewhere.
