Starting in the buzzing capital of Bangkok, you will discover a city of contrasts beginning with an evening tour along the illuminated old town to a delightful riverfront restaurant. Awake refreshed and head to the famed Wat Po to watch the monks chanting rituals followed by a tour of the river canals and glittering Grand Palace.

Excursions outside the city offer a glimpse of rural Thai lifestyles and ancient history.

The next day by train through lush countryside to Ayutthaya for a tour of the ancient temples in the former capital.

The next leg of your Thailand tour takes you north to Chiang Mai, highlighted by an adventure at an elephant camp and visit to a local hilltribe. Traveling by trishaw, longtail boat, bamboo raft and bicycle you will encounter the north’s rich culture from a unique point of view.

Bliss out on the beaches but also learn about the natural beauty and deep history of Phuket with a tour of the island’s interior.
