Explore the Kingdom of Thailand—its history, culture, and cuisine—in this tour of Southeast Asia's most dynamic country.
From the bustling streets of Bangkok to the mountainous reaches of Chiang Mai, we'll visit temples, palaces, museums, markets, and parks, and taste the regional variations of Thai food. We'll also take a side trip into Cambodia for a few days to visit the historic site of Angkor Wat, and even hit the beaches at Thailand's oldest resort city.
