Traidhos Songkran Camp
The hot, dry days of the April school holidays, leading to Songkran, thai New Year proved to be the perfect time to experience camping on Doi Inthanon. Even on the hottest of days, the highest point in Thailand remains pleasant for tent camping. The chance to explore forests and streams and camp with new friends was embraced by campers from Chiang Mai, Bangkok and Udon Ratchathani who had come together for Traidhos Songkran English Camp.
The group gelled well and had fun around the campfire, exploring the local area and participating in group games and learning english. It was a good opportunity for campers to live a more sustainable lifestyle: eating healthily, interacting with new people instead of just electronic gadgets, learning new things and living close to nature.
