Incense mingles with aromatic foods as your tuk-tuk zips through Bangkok's narrow streets lined with Buddha statues for sale. Chants drift from Buddhist temples and the chatter of locals fishing from the Chao Phraya River. Mediate on the ruins of Ayutthaya, the ancient capital of Siam or the infamous bridge over the River Kwai. Our discount tours of Thailand include everything you need for the trip of a lifetime!
Tours & Packages to Thailand
Our guides Patty and Nan were just great. The highlight of the trip for me and many others was riding elephants on the optional tour in Chiang Rai.

Treasures of Thailand
The trip to Thailand was indeed incredible! It sounds great on the Friendly Planet overview but it's so much more! I don't know where to start. Hotels were great. Everyone should stay at the Dusit Thani [hotel]. We went back there for a weekend on our own. Our guide was awesome, she made extra stops for us along the road for things like sticky rice cooked in bamboo (loved that) and always asked if everyone had their passports, etc. when we went to a different place. She also took us on a boat to Laos and everyone got their passports stamped and of course we got to shop a little. As far as shopping goes, I'd say watch out - Thailand has everything and you're gonna want it all. Bangkok is easy to get around in and has a super mall close to the Dusit Thani... I've been to Egypt, Borneo, Morocco, Cambodia, Vietnam, Kenya and now Thailand with [Friendly Planet] and I'm going to South Africa this summer too. guess that tells you something. PS, our guide was the best I've ever had and y'all have some good ones. And Noni, her assistant, had a cooler with ICE and COLD soft drinks and water. I can't tell you how wonderful that was. A really great practice where it's so hot.
