Thailand has been on the traveller’s map for many decades. And not without reason! Most famous for its tropical islands and white-sanded beaches, the Kingdom’s hilly north offers respite from the bustling streets of Bangkok, whilst the country’s north-eastern region, Isaan, is still relatively untouched by tourism. However, what makes Thailand truly special are its friendly locals, mouth-watering food and magnificent temples that weave like an underlying thread through the entire country.
Discover one of Bangkok’s oldest and most vibrant neighbourhoods. With its sprawling local life, rich history and world-renowned street food, there’s no place like Chinatown to experience the hustle and bustle of the city. Discover the ancient traditions of Buddhism and the rich influence of Chinese culture in Thailand, whilst soaking up all the exciting flavours in one evening.
Explore stunning mountains and fascinating hill tribe villages, enjoy wonderful elephants and mountain temples – not forgetting bamboo rafting along the river. And all this by South East Asia’s most iconic vehicle – the humble, much loved tuk-tuk. The only choice is whether to opt for the self-drive or chauffeur driven adventures!
