Thailand Tours

Beyond the soaring skyscrapers of Thailand's capital Bangkok, there's traditional scenes of rural life aplenty, from the farming communities of central Thailand to the hill tribes of Chiang Rai.

With a rich cultural heritage heavily influenced by the wide-spread practise of Theravada Buddhism, saffron-clad monks and gleaming temples are a familiar sight throughout the country and impressive to behold. In the southern reaches of Thailand are the palm-fringed beaches and crystal clear waters of Hua Hin and Krabi, for travellers who want some of the country’s famed sun, sea and sand thrown in with their travels.

My Tour guide Tom ( I am sorry I forgot his surname) was AMAZING! he took us to amazing food stops, included everything you would want, shared dinner time with us, was funny and friendly and even gave us a hug when we left. The tour was amazing. Was sad to say goodbye to everyone but I will be telling everyone about this tour and about Tom as he made the trip!

:)

Thanks so much”

Our trip was truly amazing! We felt that all the guides opened up about their experiences growing up in their respective countries. We felt like we were well looked after. Practically all the rooms were above our expectations especially the one in Pakbang Laos where we had an incredibly view of the Mekong River.

Mr. Paiboon was our guide in northern Thailand. We felt that in addition to being our best guide that he also became a friend. Kim in Vietnam was very very close! It was a tough call.

We would and have already recommended On the Go to other people. Thanks for a incredible experience! Rick and Deb”

Explore the best of Thailand with On The Go Tours

Wat Arun | Bangkok | Thailand
Venice of the East

Bangkok

Needing little introduction, Bangkok, the Venice of the East, the city of Angels and the Asian city of sin (the nicknames are endless ) is usually everyone’s first stop in Thailand. Gleaming temples, busy streets full of tuk-tuks and motorbikes; and hectic markets are just some of the many charms this sprawling city has. A visit to the Grand Palace, Reclining Buddha (Wat Pho) and the Khoa San Road are a must!

Bridge over the River Kwai | Kanchanaburi | Thailand
Bridge on the River Kwai

Kanchanaburi

Location of the famous Thailand-Burma (Death) railway and Bridge on the River Kwai in WWII, Kanchanaburi is fast becoming one of Thailand’s most visited sites. Just a couple of hours outside of Bangkok this verdant town offers relatively easy trekking, a number of fascinating war-related museums (Death Railway Museum, JEATH War Museum and the War Museum & Art Gallery) and some beautiful waterfalls.

White Temple | Chiang Rai | Thailand
Where 3 countries meet

Chiang Rai

Sometimes overlooked as people head to the more popular Chiang Mai, Chiang Rai is definitely worth spending a few days in. Not only is it home to the glistening white ‘White Temple’ and many of the famous hill tribes of Thailand – it is also home to the famed ‘Golden Triangle’ – where Thailand, Laos and Burma meet and is the former heart of the world’s opium trade.

Chaweng Beach | Koh Samui | Thailand
Beachtime bliss

Koh Samui

Sitting in the south of the Gulf of Thailand, Koh Samui is definitely one of Thailand’s premier island destinations and has been welcoming tourists since the 1960s. With pristine white beaches, superb SCUBA diving, lush hiking trails and majestic Big Buddha – Koh Samui has something for everybody and being just a short flight from Bangkok - its perfect for the ultimate Thai getaway!

Khao Sok National Park | Thailand | Southeast Asia
Natural wonders

Khao Sok NP

With craggy limestone karsts towering above the water, Khao Sok National Park is home to some of the world’s oldest rainforest. Situated in the south of the country, visitors flock here to take advantage of the beautiful jungle trekking, to relax on scenic canoe rides and above all marvel at the breathtakingly beautiful scenery that this gem of a place has to offer.

Floating Markets | Bangkok | Thailand
Bangkok boating

Cruising the Khlongs

Khlongs is the Thai version of canals and Bangkok is full of them! Back in the day the waterways were the most common way of travelling around the city but nowadays many of these have been filled in to create roads. However a cruise along these historic waterways can give you a fascinating insight into a certain type of Bangkok resident as you pass old bridges, crooked houses and even orchards and farms in the middle of the city.

Hua Hin | Thailand | Southeast Asia
Royal Retreat

Hua Hin

Historically the home of the summer residencies of Rama VI and Rama VII, Hua Hin is a popular beach retreat only a few hours from Bangkok. It is a favourite with the Bangkok city dwellers at the weekends and is also the main home of the current King of Thailand Rama IX. Unlike some of its island counterparts Hua Hin does not pride itself on being a tranquil beach paradise – however it is great if you’re short on time and fancy a few days by the beach!

All was excellent. This is the third time we've used on the go and we'll use them again! Lee was excellent and went out of her way to help and was very informative and friendly. ”
