Guests at the luxury camp in Thailand’s northern borderlands can now enjoy jungle picnics and learn age-old fishing techniques from local residents.
Stressed-out city-dwellers aching for a digital detox will want to get away from it all with a glamping experience at Four Seasons Tented Camp Golden Triangle, which occupies a verdant hillside above the meandering Ruak River on the border between Thailand and Myanmar. All-inclusive two-, three-, and four-night adventure packages at the resort now offer a range of excursions that spotlight the bucolic charms of the Chiang Saen district. “These new experiences are a mix of adventure, cultural exploration and relaxation, tailormade for your style of travel,” said Tobias Emmer, the property’s Camp Manager, in a statement.
Travelers will have the chance to skim over the Ruak River in a longtail boat and try their hand at fish trapping and bamboo fishing with fishermen from the surrounding region. Another option is the guided Hillside Bicycle Tour following a paved trail that includes a few challenging slopes. The route takes guests through lush green paddy fields, pineapple and rubber plantations, as well as a teak forest, offering views of the rural scenery and nearby mountains en route to Bua Luang Lake.
A more sedate alternative is a picnic deep in the bamboo jungle, by the Ruak River, or in the wooded gardens of the resort itself, with Camp Chef Pisan Torphet preparing an appetizing selection of Thai or Western snacks. To take things up a notch, guests can enjoy riverside camp-style cocktails and a BBQ dinner at the uninhabited “Jungle Peninsula,” with private transfers in the Four Seasons’ fully restored vintage Land Rover.
