Explore Thailand's countryside, towns and beaches
From busy Bangkok with its magnificent temples and lively markets, we head west for some beautiful countryside and the slower pace of rural Thailand. We visit the site of 'The Bridge on the River Kwai', the spectacular Erawan Waterfall and the ancient capital of Ayutthaya. Then we head north exploring the Chiang Mai region on foot, and by elephant. For two days we walk past hilltribe villages whilst exploring the surrounding area, and spend the night in a village house. Finally we enjoy a well-earned rest by the beach at Koh Samet where there are various optional activities available.
