Some countries more than others make you want to leave, to escape. Thailand is part of these dream destinations. The 4 steps of 20 to 30km each, will allow you to compete in places as beautiful as different in Chiang Mai region, North of the country.
Here, we are far from Bangkok and its pollution. The air is more breathable, less touristic than the south. Beaches are replaced by five parallel chains from Northern Thailand : they are the foothills of Himalayas. Today, Chiang-Mai is the north tribes capital. Located at the gates of the "Golden Triangle", Chiang Mai has the reputation of being one of the most beautiful citiy in the country.
