If you’re near Chiang Mai on your next trip to Thailand, I would strongly suggest you update your plans, change your itinerary and prepare to fulfil your childhood dream. Sleeping in a treehouse.
I recommend staying at least three nights to make the most of your adventure. Choose one of the many bush-bashing-bikes on hand and spend at least one full day exploring the jungle on two wheels; find the bat cave, scream through the red sands and check out the stalagmite cavern. You’ll encounter hundreds of butterflies, make some dog friends and feel like you’re the first person outside of the village to discover every path and find every spirit house.
Rabeang Pasak is about a 45 minute drive from Chiang Mai and depending on your driver – be prepared to close your eyes and hold your breath for most of it. If you meet Mink or Pin, tell them with a smile – I said xin chào!
