Bangkok & Beyond

Bangkok & Beyond - Hero

Independent Tours

Temples, elephants and the Golden Triangle – welcome to Thailand. This week-long tour of Thailand will have you flying between Bangkok and Chiang Mai on route to Chiang Rai’s Golden Triangle. It’s a fun-packed cultural itinerary with guided walking and rickshaw tours adding to the anticipation of independent adventures. Staying at least a couple of nights in each destination provides the perfect introduction to the customs and people of Thailand. This is a country where you’re never too far from an ornate looking temple or street corner shrine. Before long you’ll be browsing round brightly lit night markets and soaking up the scent of incense and marigolds like a pro. Thanks to the domestic flight north, you’ll be given plenty of chances to compare and contrast two of Thailand’s cultural capitals. It’s an opportunity to learn more about the heritage of each region as well as an excuse to find out who serves the best pad Thai. From jungle trails and elephant feeding to ornament workshops and ancient temples, if you’re looking for Bangkok, and beyond, here’s where your journey begins.
