Extending up towards the Myanmar and Laos borders, northern Thailand is the least developed part of the country and offers the chance to enjoy traditional Thai culture & rugged scenery.
To the north-west the plains of central Thailand give way to hills, mountains & rainforest with a network of streams, lakes, rivers & waterfalls (especially during wet season). Popular adventure travel activities include trekking, cycling, rafting & elephant rides through the jungle, with most travelers starting from Chiang Mai or Chiang Rai.
The north-east, known as Isaan is largely agricultural & less visited. Many visitors make their way through this region en-route to Laos overland, passing through the border town of Nong Khai before crossing to Vientiane.
