Doi Saket, Northern Thailand

A RURAL FARMING COMMUNITY, IN THE HEARTLAND OF THAILAND

Chiang Mai was founded in 1296 and is one of Thailand's best kept secrets. A vibrant cultural hub for the arts and nomadic travellers alike, it's surrounded by a ring of mountains and vast farms and rice fields.

Doi Saket is a suburb on the outskirts of Chiang Mai, it is a rural farming area known for its quiet natural beauty and remains popular with Thai tourists looking to escape the hustle of the city, to reconnect with the traditional Thai simple life.

"I really thought I'd be surrounded by a bunch of hippies that had no idea about the practicalities of the real world, but I was hugely mistaken!"

"My experience with My Chi Journey was life altering in a way I hadn't anticipated. Reconnecting with my artistic roots via completely unexpected ways alongside connecting with individuals I am positive will be life long friends made my experiences 100% worthwhile "

JESSIKAH ROBERTS

"My Chi Journey was the best investment I have ever made for myself in my entire life. Everyone told me how radiant I looked after my five day retreat and I continue to feel that renewed sense of self and life."

NADA AL GHOWAINIM

"Location and accommodations being spectacular are an ancillary benefit, the real treasure is Michael and the people he attracts to share the journey and vision - I look forward to many more journey's and late night talks about the philosophy of Tupac, spirituality, geopolitics and life in general".
