Start exploring the temples, palaces and markets, including the opulent Grand Palace, Wat Pho and Wat Arun, and the Emerald Buddha in Wat Phra Kaew.

Sailing on a colonial style river cruiser that carries a maximum of 20 passengers, you’ll sleep in teakwood cabins and stop off along the river to visit temples, waterfalls, war cemeteries and hot springs.

Days 8-14

Koh Samui

Fly on to the paradise island of Koh Samui, a palm-fringed haven of white sand and beautiful beaches, we relaxation is definitely in order. Beaches are of course the number one draw but other attractions include the Big Buddha, the Old House, a 200-year-old Chinese house, and the Wat Khunaram Ko Samui which is home to a rather bizarre mummified monk. Ko Samui is a great place to try diving or snorkelling among the colourful corals and tropical fish.
