Culturally Sensitive Tours

In addition to quality lodging, Lanna Thai Villa leads culturally sensitive guided tour excursions to Laos, Cambodia, Burma (Myanmar), Nepal, Bali and Yunnan Province in China. Our tours employ bilingual host country guides and contacts developed over the years. We specialize in providing off the beaten track tour programs as well as informative visits to important cultural and historical sites. When feasible we time our visits to coincide with local celebrations and ceremonies of interest. Our groups are small for a more personal feel and to allow more interaction with the guides and host country nationals.

2017-2018 trips now in the planning stages include:

Bali - August 2017
Bhutan - October 2017
Nepal - November 2017
Myanmar - September and December, 2017 and January 2018

We welcome inquiries and will be happy to send detailed itineraries and cost information as it is finalized.
Here is what our guests had to say about a recent excursion to Myanmar, which is highlighted on our Blog Lanna Happenings.
"Thank you so much for opening the door to this extraordinary place. You have generously shared your experiences and given a unique insight into the people and places here. Chance encounters occur on your peregrinations and it is as if we are interlopers. We have had a wonderful time. Save a place for us on the next trip."

Hugh and Jude - Wales.

"Thank you so much Steve and Sermsri. What a wonderful experience you have given us all. Discussing a potential trip a year ago at Lanna Thai came to a magnificent conclusion. Our grateful thanks Steve. And, what wonderful memories to take home. Gold, mainly Pagodas, Buddha images, golden smiles, golden sunsets - and dawns. The smells and sights and sound of Myanmar will stay with us forever."

Chris and Pat - Perth.

"What wonderful people in such a lovely country you have introduced us to. So many thank yous for sharing your Burmese friends with us and we look forward to learning about their progress in the future from you. The sharing of your seemingly endless knowledge was much  appreciated too. Special thanks to Sermsri for knowing where the markets are and for her cool and calm example when all around is bedlam. We both hope you both enjoyed the trip too and we were not too much of a strain. Your kindness, sympathy and understanding in times of need was unbounding. Many many thnaks again. Looking forward to next time."

John and Anna -  Valeilles, France

"These last few weeks have opened our eyes to a completely different culture and to a smiling people. The trip has been so meticulously planned and with such an enormous variety of places to go and things to see that we feel very priveleged to have shared it with you. Very many thnaks for all your hard work. Our very best wishes to you both."

Alan and Kate - Roquecor, France.

"This has been a wonderful trip from start to finish. Your calm and kind leadership made it all so easy for us. For me Inle Lake was the most exciting, especially the early morning boat rides that were specilaly calm and beautiful. And, who ever heard of rowing with your legs! The very best was our visits to remote villages and the amazing view of the beauty of such simple living and they seemed so delighted with us as we with them."

Jack - Marblehead, Massachusetts.

"I have loved traveling with you - even so strenuously and have watched you treat every person you meet as a "thou." Your patience, low key style of leadership and curiosity have introduced us to the people of rural Myanmar, not to mention 100,000 Buddhas! I loved the villages and feeling
 part of these communities so different from ours and felt lucky to see the inside of orphanages and monasteries, feeling safe and well cared for every moment. I feel lucky Jack and i hooked up with you. Thank you for helping us get to khow Myanmar without stress."

Linda - Marblehead, Massachusetts.

"Dont take me off your mailing list. This was the first long organized trip with folks I had not met before for close to 40 years. All concerns quickly disappeared, and it has been good fun. Many thanks for a well organized trip."
