When most people visit Thailand from Australia these days its to enjoy the Sun and Sand at places like Phuket, Krabi and Koh Samui, which for those that want a “beach stay” holiday is fine. Many travellers though who want an introduction to Asia and foreign cultures are now skipping Thailand in favour of places like Cambodia, Vietnam and Malaysia. The truth is though that if you get away from the beaches and resorts there is plenty to do in Thailand that will give you a first hand look at a different culture, its heritage, its cuisine and modern life and more.
For that reason we have put together what we call an introductory encounter – this is a trip where we mix up day tours with free time for exploration, or joining our escort on the free days to encounter their passions in the local region. We will be taking in the highlights of Bangkok, and for the adventurous we have an extension option into the mountain regions to see sights like Doi Inthananon Temple at Chiang Mai (Pictured above), as well as visiting remote tribes and cultures.
Departing on the 7th November 2015, and starting at AU$2400 per person twin share for the base package (not including the Chiang Mai Extension) this is the perfect way to encounter Thailand. Full details can be found here!
I was going to spend some time talking about how you can visit the Tiger Temple, the Death Railway, the incredible floating markets the Hilltribes and more .. instead I thought I would just let you take a look at some fantastic images of what there is too see and do around Bangkok and Chiang Mai so you can see for yourself a sample of some of the fantastic things we will be taking in.
