Discovery Tour In Thailand With Koh Samet Beach Time

Discover the cultural side to Thailand as we explore hilltop temples, cruise on a converted rice barge and unwind on the island of Koh Samet. We discover the ruined temples of the former royal capital Ayutthaya and visit the renowned 'Bridge over the River Kwai'. We take a longtail boat along the Kwai Noi River to jungle raft houses - from here we ride elephants through the undergrowth, visit a Mon village and try bamboo rafting. Finally we travel to the tropical beaches of Koh Samet - an unspoilt National Park - we can relax on the pristine beaches, snorkel in the clear waters or enjoy a boat trip around secluded bays.

Tour Highlights

  • Bangkok - Explore the glittering Grand Palace complex and Wat Po, the beautiful temple of the Reclining Buddha
  • Chiang Mai - Bustling walled old town and the serene hillside Doi Suthep Temple
  • Sukhothai - Cycle around the historic park housing the remains of this ancient capital
  • Kanchanaburi - Jungle rafts, minority villages and the infamous Bridge on the River Kwai
  • Koh Samet - Golden sand beaches and warm waters of the Gulf of Thailand
