Taste of Thailand

7days

Tour description

This short holiday offers a mouth-watering taste of central Thailand and will leave you looking forward to your next visit. Enjoy Bangkok’s many temples and palaces and explore the canals of its western suburbs on a long-tail boat. Then tour to the bridge on the River Kwai, take a journey on the Death Railway to Hellfire Pass and visit a local Mon village. Experience the natural wonders of Erawan National Park and Thailand’s historic capital, Ayutthaya, and of course let’s not forget the real taste of Thailand with a floating market and Thai cookery tour!

Grand Palace, Bangkok, ThailandWe start in Bangkok with a morning tour to the stunning temples and architecture in the Grand Palace complex, followed by a visit to the huge reclining golden Buddha at Wat Po. After a tasty Thai lunch by the Chao Phraya river, we board a private longtail boat and cross the river to head into Thonburi, Bangkok's surprisingly green and rural western suburb. Here we watch and learn about the daily life of people who live by the canals, and can enjoy various stops including an orchid farm, temple school, and the boat-house where the Royal Barges are stored and maintained.

Waterfalls at Erawan National Park, ThailandFrom Bangkok we head west to historic Kanchanaburi and visit the Allied War Cemetery and war museum, as well as the famous POW built bridge on the River Kwai. The next day takes us into the jungle of Erawan National Park, and a beautiful 7 tiered waterfall, with refreshing pools to dip in, and the afternoon is free for you to enjoy the riverside town of Kanchanaburi.

Our next main stop is at Ayutthaya, Thailand's capital for around 400 years and for many years one of the world's great cities. The city was ravaged by the Burmese in 1767 and abandoned, but is now a World Heritage Site and is home to numerous ruined temples in a very different style of architecture to that you'll have seen in Thailand so far.

Buddha head at Ayutthaya, ThailandWe return to Bangkok from Ayutthaya and our last full day gives us a real taste of Thailand, with a morning boat trip to the Damnoen Saduak floating market, one of the most colourful in the kingdom, and an afternoon introduction to Thai cookery.

We offer extensions to this tour to visit Ankhor Wat in Cambodia, or to head south to the beach.
