Thailand, the "Land of Smiles" is one of the most enchanting places we have ever visited. Bangkok is built around the Chao Phraya River. You'll find towering buildings, crisscrossing Klongs, the Grand Palace, and intricate temples and shrines. A visit to Bangkok would not be complete without a day at the world famous Chatuchak Market. Be sure to also sample the spicy street food, some of the best we've ever had, and end your meal with a delicious chocolate filled crepe or coconut ice cream sprinkled with peanuts. Delicious! And please ask us about the incredible Floating Market.
If you love animals, make time to visit northern Thailand and the cities of Chiang Mai and Chiang Rai, where you can spend the day learning about elephants, how to bathe, feed, and care for them. It's an unforgettable experience. You'll also be treated to green, picturesque countryside and perhaps meet a few lovely hill tribes. You may even be adventurous enough to ride a tuk-tuk to the nearby temples at sunset.
Thailand also boasts some of the most beautiful beaches in all the world. Swim and snorkel in the crystal clear turquoise waters, drop in on Monkey Island, or visit Maya Beach, the beach made famous by Leonardo DiCaprio. Thailand will capture your heart.
