The Land of Smiles is a popular long haul destination for tourists but tour Thailand with Explore and you will discover so much more of the country, people and culture. All of our holidays include the alluring, lively, sensory overload of the capital city Bangkok where we visit the Grand Palace and head out on our longtail boat to explore the busy ‘klongs’. From here our journey of discovery begins.
Explore offers one of the most comprehensive programmes to Thailand to suit any budget. From family adventures to specific teen departures to trekking, village home stays, cultural encounters or simply relaxing on the glorious tropical beaches. Buddhist temples, hill tribes and elephant riding, wild camping, rail journeys, overland explorations, or even sampling the local public transport – there is no question Thailand has something for everyone. There are also active programmes where you can white water raft, trek, cycle through the jungle to limestone caves, snorkel, swim and bamboo raft, and staying on the famous River Kwai in a jungle raft house or cruising on a rice barge on the Chao Phraya are unforgettable experiences not to be missed!
You can explore Thailand on its own or link it with one, two or all of the following - Laos, Cambodia and Vietnam – giving you a complete picture of Indochina. Indochina journeys also include visiting the remote north where tourism is still in its infancy, and through the heart of South East Asia.
