It's no secret that Thailand boasts an envious number of tropical beaches and jungle-clad islands surrounded by welcoming waters but travellers on our trips will soon discover there's a whole lot more to this old favourite.
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 practice of Theravada Buddhism, saffron-clad monks and gleaming temples are a familiar sight throughout the country.Read More

Kudos to Pok, our tour guide. He did a great job, is very attentive to the needs of the tour members and I would be happy to nominate him for your Tour Leader Award.
Otherwise, only one day was a slight downer, the day we had to spend about 8 hours in the van to reach a site. Not a big deal, but not much fun either. Otherwise, I found the accommodation all great, the food great and the destinations great as well. Well done to all who planned and executed this tour!”
I had an amazing holiday in Thailand thanks to my great tour guide Mhor and was very lucky to have lovely travel companions! Mhor has been a fantastic guide, he looked after us splendidly, also making sure I had food options due to my dietary restrictions, I felt looked after in every moment. Mhor is a great guy, very knowledgeable, helpful and funny! I would not hesitate to recommend this tour to friends and family. ”
Hello On The Go Tours, My husband and i recently did your Bangkok to Cambodia tour, just the BKK to SGN part which was great. Good tour leaders throughout, in particular Quin in Vietnam who is a bit of a rockstar.
What I did want to mention though was my disappointment that (despite what I'd been told to the contrary, not by On The Go Tours) there were almost no big office style water bubblers where we could refill our own bottles. I had been told these were fairly common but only the Pak Beng and Luang Prabang hotels had any alternatives to the endless use of plastic water bottles. I try to limit my own plastic use and recycle wherever possible and am uncomfortable at being a classic privileged western tourist leaving a trail of single-use plastic bottles behind me in SE Asia. I hope you can take the lead in encouraging local hotels and on the tour buses to offer alternatives that are more environmentally sustainable.
All the best. ”

From the pulsating capital of Bangkok to the colourful markets of Chiang Mai in the north and the tropical islands of the south, Thailand has plenty to draw visitors but while you're in the area why not combine with neighbouring Burma and its beautiful temples or the captivating French-influenced cities of Laos and much more beside with our range of tours.
Recommended Places to Visit in Thailand
With a bustling capital, endless options of pristine beaches and temples galore, there's plenty to see in Thailand but some destinations have the edge and here's some of the top sites in Thailand we recommend seeking out.
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.
Just over an hour from Bangkok, the ancient city of Ayuthaya is brimming with Siamese history. Ruins of magnificent temples which were destroyed in the 1700s are expertly preserved and can be discovered easily just by walking through the city. Headless Buddhas sit among the fallen rocks of former palaces and temples with modern shops and restaurants lining the streets.
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 and Reclining Buddha (Wat Pho) are a must.
Site of the famous Thailand-Burma Death railway and the Bridge on the River Kwai, 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, including the JEATH War Museum and the War Museum & Art Gallery, and beautiful waterfalls.
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.
Historically the home of the summer residencies of Thai kings, Hua Hin is a popular beach retreat only a few hours from Bangkok. It is a favourite with 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 with plenty of entertainment to enjoy.
