Please secure a ride, a taxi or a red truck shuttle, from the airport to the Hotel.

The taxi ride is usually only 10-15 minutes away from the airport with a minimum cost of $10.

As a suggestion, all necessities, such as cosmetics, deodorants , clothings, food and gifts etc are all reasonably priced in Thailand. So please travel light so that upon your return your suitcase will have room and you will not be charged excess weight from airlines.

This year we will again host a large group of approximately 20 attending.

It is our personal satisfaction and dream to again have each and all be satisfied and fulfilled with The VC Thailand Student Study Tour.

About Away Thapae Resort


Step into a world of luxury, colonial charm and Lanna cultural beauty. The myriad cultural highlights of Chiang Mai surround this unique design hotel tucked away on a quiet lane: Away Chiang Mai Thapae Resort – A Vegan Retreat. Historic streets, temples, and the illustrious Thapae Gate are all within easy reach.

Away Thapae Resort offers luxury accommodation in a variety of types and sizes. Each of the rooms and suites comes with its own private river view, letting you feel the warm breeze as you relax, clear your mind, and gaze out into nature.


Vegan is not a diet. It is a lifestyle. You could simply go “plant-based” as a diet, which many celebrities and others have done in the past. But going vegan is something you do with your heart and not just your head.


Feast on delectable Western and Thai cuisine at Moreganic Vegan Restaurant, now certified by Veggiehotels. We source only the finest, freshest ingredients for every dish. We also adhere to the Thai Buddhist value of abstinence, and accordingly serve no alcohol.
