With idyllic islands, palm-fringed beaches, and mouth-watering cuisine, it's little wonder that Thailand is such a popular travel destination. It's also home to one of the most visited cities in all of Asia, the raucous and exhilarating capital of Bangkok where contrasts abound as skyscrapers tower over golden pagodas and street vendors selling delicious Thai food.
The historic River Kwai is the perfect cruise destination, and the temples and hill tribes of Chiang Mai are waiting to be discovered. Add to this a population of smiling people ready to welcome you to their beloved country and you should start to understand the appeal.

Frequently asked questions about our Thailand Group Tours
Can I cruise the River Kwai in Thailand?
You sure can! We offer multi-day River Kwai cruising on many of our tours, including the 5-day Cruise River Kwai Express and 8-day Cruise River Kwai. On some you can explore the region in 5-star luxury, with a la carte meals, comfortable cabins and guided excursions to famous sites including the Bridge on the River Kwai.
On other tours, such as the 10-day Ancient Thailand & River Kwai, we offer shorter boat rides on the Kwai, and even spend a night on a jungle raft on the Kwai Noi River.
What sort of transport do you use in Thailand?
What is the quality of accommodation on these Thailand tour packages?
On some tours there is also a night spent aboard an air-conditioned overnight train. Although the accommodation standard on this train will not be as good as your hotel accommodation, it will be comfortable enough, and should be a fun cultural experience - stock up on snacks and enjoy the ride through Thailand's lush countryside!
Will I have a tour guide on your Thailand trips?
I want to avoid the monsoons in Thailand, when should I visit?
Thailand's rainy season lasts from July - October, but you can certainly still visit during this time. Rain tends to arrive in short, sharp showers lasting no more than a few hours and it turns the countryside into a vibrant green. If you did prefer to be nice and dry, then you're best to visit Thailand during the cool, dry season from November - February or the hotter season from March - May. Thailand is a great year-round destination, and it's always wise to pack for a few showers!
