Loud, bright, chaotic and delightful, Bangkok is a city of modern excesses intermingled with simple traditions, all wrapped up in the famous smiles of the locals.

Famed as the location of the Bridge on the River Kwai, Kanchanaburi is a beautiful town surrounded by verdant jungle, waterfalls and rivers.

Once a glorious city with golden palaces and grand buildings, Ayuthaya was destroyed by the Burmese and is now a typical Thai town with impressive ruins.

Day 6 Village Homestay

The welcoming village of Ban Hua Tung offers a fascinating insight into the life and culture of a local Thai community.

Days 7-8 Chiang Mai

Chiang Mai means 'new city', even though it was founded in 1296! It's a favourite among travellers due to its relaxed feel and cultural richness.

A royal resort since the 1920s, the relaxing seaside town of Hua Hin has white sandy beaches and delicious fresh seafood in its markets and restaurants.
