Join the monks of the famous temple Wat Pho in their morning chanting ritual and visit Wat Phra Kaew, home to the venerated Emerald Buddha. Take a tour of Jim Thompson’s house, the American silk-millionaire who mysteriously disappeared in 1967. Try an unusual local specialty at the former capital, Ayutthaya. Hop on your own private rice barge for a cruise along the River of Kings, the Chao Phraya. Samut Songkhram is where you’ll visit a floating market and journey by paddleboat through a maze of canals before visiting a local family.
Explore the markets and temples of Chiang Rai and go to a local hill tribe project to learn more about these fascinating people. An elephant ride through bamboo forest and woodland will reveal abundant wildlife with help from our expert guides. Ride an ox-cart through lush rice paddies to visit the Akha hill tribe and explore old Chiang Mai with its city walls and moat. Take a day to discover more of Chiang Mai or your excellent hotel facilities, before we whisk you away to the beautiful island of Phuket where you will learn about its history, and of course have plenty of time to stretch-out and relax on the beach.
