Industry’s first tuk tuk self-drive tours

Choice of tours to discover Thailand’s rural north
The travel industry’s first tuk tuk self-drive tours have been launched by Bangkok-based operator Diethelm Travel Group to discover the rural outskirts of Chiang Mai.
The one-day Northern Thailand Self-Drive Tuk Tuk Adventure program takes travellers on the three-seater rickshaws through the heart of northern Thailand’s jungle-covered hills and rice fields, with stops in rural villages and an ethical elephant sanctuary, a traditional Thai lunch and bamboo river rafting.
A five-day tuk tuk adventure also takes visitors to the top of Doi Inthanon, Thailand’s highest peak, with overnights in homestays and a day spent trekking.
An 11-day adventure itinerary builds gives travellers even more opportunities to drive through the mountainous north, plus plenty of time to explore at leisure, lounge by hotel pools and spend time in the town of Pai.
Drivers must be at least 18 years old and hold a valid manual driving licence from their home country, as well as attend a safety briefing and tuk tuk driving lesson.
