CHICAGO, Feb. 19, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Off The Path Travel, an innovator in responsible, small-group travel, is proud to announce a spring press tour in Northern Thailand. The three day tour will take participants to remote mountain villages to visit Garieng hill tribes in Mae Hong Son province.

"Thailand is always a favorite with travelers, and we offer something unique- an intimate experience with Thai culture," said Off The Path Travel's founder and co-owner Alex Martin.
The three day spring press tour starts in Mae Sariang, Thailand on April 5, 2013. From Mae Sariang, participants will journey into remote villages and areas not seen by tourists.

This summer, Off The Path Travel will offer its Thai Connection Tour, a two week cultural excursion that brings visitors face to face with the authentic Thailand through homestays, outdoor adventures, visits to hill tribes in Mae Hong Son province, cooking classes and discussions on spirituality and culture with local leaders. The tour runs for two weeks starting June 28, 2013, with an optional third week focused on secluded beaches in southern Thailand.
