Overview

Thailand is an extraordinary place, with a rich tapestry of culture, cuisine and friendly people. This diverse 12-day tour takes you away from the most well trodden tourist track and explores  a more authentic side of Bangkok to the ancient temples and ruins, national parks and traditional activities such as mask painting. Ending your trip in Chiang Mai with picturesque and rural landscape and a altogether slower pace of life. This is a wonderful tour that really showcases Thailand at its best. Your private guide will be there to ensure every little detail is taken care of and they tailor the whole experience to your tastes. (EXO)
