Corporate Team Building
The main image depicts a group undertaking our Chiang Mai City Cultural Challenge. For those with limited time due to a hectic meetings schedule, this challenge combines the basic lessons of team building; planning, communication and teamwork, within a 2-4 hr programme that has groups selecting their choice of 25-30 challenge options. Each challenge showcases a different aspect of the city or of northern Thai culture.
Our product range is extensive, it covers indoor and outdoor challenges, meeting room based activities to full on action adventure challenges. There are even options to combine team building & CSR. Our prices represent value for money and our list of past and repeat customers attests to our reputation. (Read more.)
Are you putting on an event in Chiang Mai? If so you probably want to move beyond the hotel for at least one night. The venue options are many and varied, as is the menu and the entertainment. Travel between hotel and venue is easy and with Tuk Tuk convoys or police escorts can be an event in themselves. Few destinations allow the low cost, high perceived value events that Chiang Mai does, and Track of the Tiger’s reputation for innovation, creativity and service is well deserved. (Read more.)
Outdoor & Environmental Education Services
As a tourist destination, university town, and the cultural showcase of the Kingdom, Chiang Mai is without doubt Thailand’s best choice for the International Schools market. From our base in the city we provide access to the full range of sightseeing experiences. 30-45 minutes out we offer elephants, kayaks, mountain bikes and dedicated (DofE) Duke of Edinburgh Award programmes, (and variations of them.) From our dedicated outdoor, environmental education and research centre – Pang Soong Lodge, just 60 minutes out of town in pristine forest at 700 metres above the city, we offer environmental education; forest & fresh water, hydrology, biology, geography and provide on-site laboratory access. Programmes can be tailored to meet the needs of the IB (and other) schools markets, by Director of Studies, Adrian Palmer, an experienced EE teacher and IB workshop trainer.
Track of the Tiger Tours
From nature trails and 3-4 day eco-education refreshers to cooking classes. From interacting with elephants to visiting little know places of special interest, we have 25 years of experience in introducing visitors, and now their children, to the rich culture and diverse attractions of northern Thailand.
