2008 Thailand Discovery:16 day Thailand Tour

2008 Thailand Discovery - 16 days

Welcoming people and buzzing cities are just the beginning.

You will be mesmerised by Thailand's endless wonders, from her warm, welcoming people to the energy of her markets, from her peaceful countryside to her buzzing cities … prepare to fall in love.

Our 'Thailand Discovery' is the best way for you to get acquainted with the 'Land of Smiles.' Begin your journey in Bangkok, one of the most exciting cities in the world. Head to Kanchanaburi and the River Kwai area, and then on to Ayuthaya, her ancient capital. Temple ruins in Sukhothai are testament to the artisans of the past, and in Chiang Rai see the fabled Golden Triangle. A hilltribe adventure awaits before you culminate in Chiang Mai, heart of the Lanna Kingdom.

Our group had some fantastic experiences together and I really enjoyed their company. Our tour leader’s warmth and enthusiasm – for Thailand, and us – was infectious." V. Kemsely - UK
