Thailand Adventure East Coast (May - Oct) SummaryAdd to Shortlist
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.
Awash with stunning temples, fabulous markets and a lively city centre, charming Chiang Mai is rich in culture and the gateway to the northern hilltribes.
A relatively new village and part of Thailand's infamous 'Golden Triangle' area, Doi Mae Salong is a land of tea plantations, hilltribe villages and cherry blossoms.
An experience like no other, spend the night with a welcoming Thai family, learning about their lives and traditions before sharing a delicious dinner.
Meet the hilltribes of Northern Thailand while walking through lush, verdant jungle, enjoying the hospitality, cuisine and friendliness of the people who call this area of Thailand home.
The charming city of Chiang Rai still has a small-town feel and is a lovely place to explore with a colourful night market and downtown area.
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.
Bangkok is more than just colourful city streets, khlongs (canals) weave their way through suburbs, forest parks green up the city and Buddhist temples help bring serenity.
Known for having infamous full moon parties, Ko Pha-Ngan is a mountainous island with gorgeous beaches, great diving and secluded places to relax, or nightlife to enjoy.
Ko Tao is a small island perfect to escape the crowds and don a snorkel or go diving - the underwater world here is spectacular.
Famous for its gorgeous white-sand beaches, aquamarine waters, myriad of things to do and spoils of paradise, the island of Ko Samui is a firm favourite among travellers.
