Trip Description

 

From urban cycling to mountain treking and flatwater kayaking, Thailand has the full package, all in a tropical paradise?! In buzzing Bangkok you'll indulge in mouth-watering food, visit nightclubs, and explore street markets. In northern Thailand you'll meet hill tribes, see elephants, and explore ancient temples on a mountain trek. Travel to the south and relax on beaches, discover underwater worlds, and hangout in jungles.

After exploring Bangkok, one of Asia's most cosmopolitan cities, you'll launch into the remote highlands of Northern Thailand. You'll travel into steamy rainforests on foot and visit colourful hilltribes. Cruise down the River Kwai on kayaks and explore the lesser-known side of Chiang Mai from a bicycle. The diversity of exciting outdoor options makes Thailand a haven for adventurers.
