We invite you to discover two of South East Asia's Ancient Kingdom's - Thailand and Cambodia. From the Land of Siam to the Kingdom of the Khmers, these countries will fascinate you and leave you with a sense of astonishment. Visit ancient temples, hike through tropical jungles and meet warm, gracious people.

Explore Bangkok's impressive Grand Palace, Temple of Dawn and Wat Pho with it's reclining Bhuddha. Visit the floating market and the River Kwai, with it's infamous bridge. Stay on comfortable, floating bungalows on the river, set against a backdrop of jungle covered mountains.

Explore the ancient capital of Sukhothai by bicycle. Visit an elephant workcamp and have the opportunity to ride one of these magnificent animals . The relaxing northern capital of Chiang Mai will be our base for exploration. We offer a more active trek to visit the hilltribes but also offer something less active by road and river, as well as the delightful town of Mae Hong Son, set amongst the beautiful mountain scenery of the far northwest. You can also test your culinary skills during our Thai cooking class.

Fly to Cambodia's chaotic but fascinating capital, Phnom Phen, situated on the banks of the Mekong River. Visit opulent palaces and temples but also bear witness to the countries recent tragic history under the brutal rule of the Khmer Rouge. Travel to Cambodia's enlightened period as we explore Angkor, the largest religious monument ever built, covering an area of 200 acres with its towers, terraces and causeways. Prepare to leave the outside world behind...travel through the world of Hindu mythology and arrive at the doorstep of the gods. The Khmer Empire reached its zenith of artistic expression and architecture with the building of Angkor. Built in the 12th century and abandoned in 1431, Angkor succumbed to the encroaching jungle until the great temple complex was rediscovered in 1860 by French botanist Henri Mahout. Angkor's colossal size, detailed carvings, courtyards and avenues is nothing short of impressive and overwhelming.

Our trip to ancient Thailand and Cambodia concludes with a flight back to Bangkok, with a farewell dinner and traditional Thai dance.
