Thailand has so much diversity on offer and on this holiday we’ll take you through 3 very different parts of this beautiful country, to enjoy a superb variety of holiday experiences and see if from a slightly different angle. Explore the rich history of Bangkok and Ayutthaya on foot or by bike, taking time to enjoy a more local view. Board a train to the remote north east to enjoy the "Emerald Triangle” and explore the mighty Mekong before heading south to relax on a choice of beautiful beaches or perhaps continue on into Laos.
