Thailand is an exotic landscape rich in culture and history. It offers a plethora of options for the curious traveller;  there are the lush, thick jungles of the north, the crystal clear, warm waters of the coast, the famously delicious Thai cuisine and of course the inviting hospitality of the local people. The earliest recorded Thai Kingdom dates back to the 13th century, and on this tour, escorted by a national guide, you will discover the country’s remarkable heritage.  

Starting in Bangkok, you will uncover the highlights; from bustling river markets to spectacular palaces. Next we start to make our way north with our first stop at the world heritage site,  Ayutthaya and then, a stay in Sukhothai, an ancient kingdom of Thailand, and the first capital of Siam.

We make our way to Chiang Mai, to discover the rich culture of the northern part of Thailand in this bustling city. As our northern discovery comes to an end, we fast track our way to some beach time with a flight back to Bangkok to transfer to Hua Hin, for a three night stay in the beautiful resort coastal town of Hua Hin. 

All this, whilst enjoy small group touring with the company of other solo travellers.

<p>'My holiday to the Red Centre was a very humbling experience.  This holiday exceeded all my expectations.  Being my first holiday as a solo traveller I was apprehensive, now I have had the experience I recommend it.'</p>

<p>'My second Encounter tour, and the common thread is that you're with a group of people, of a similar age, who are all looking to enjoy their holiday. Makes for a good dynamic.'</p>
