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!

It's not very often these days that you get more than promised but that's what we got from Treasures of Thailand. The whole trip including hotels, the tour guide, the food, and the sights seen exceeded our expectations. The days were planned out very well; even the longer travel days included plenty of interesting stops to break up the trip. Others in our group who had toured elsewhere were very impressed with the quality compared to much more expensive tours. I was a little worried about doing a tour bus trip based on stories I heard about them being rigid and too touristy, but this trip included great flexibility, wonderful optional add-ons, and focused on both highlight sights and everyday, local culture. I can't imagine a better way to see so much of Thailand in such an enjoyable way. We loved out tour guide Lucky (Ms. Pensri). She was very knowledgeable, funny, kind, well-organized, and went out of her way to ensure we saw and experienced as much as possible. She was always looking out for us, to the point of going into one hotel's kitchen to get the chef to cook faster and hitching a ride on a local salesman's motorcycle to find a wayward tourer lost at a temple ruins. She was frequently buying local foods for us to sample and making sure we got good deals on local products and services. The second we looked like we had lost something, or we starting looking around for a bathroom, or we looked like we needed second helpings at a dinner, she'd run over to us to see how she could help. I am about to book my next Friendly Planet tour. Thanks for a great trip.

We recently returned from the Thailand tour. We want to say that this was really a wonderful experience in observing the culture of this country. It consisted of day after day of new and exciting experiences. We especially want you to know what a great job our tour guide, Tajma Earkanna, did on this tour. She worked very hard to make sure every one on the tour got the most they possibly could from it. She epitomizes the warmth and gentleness of this country. We have traveled with Friendly Planet before and plan to do so in the future.
