Sukhothai, Central and Northern Thailand Tour

Our Thai Heritage program features an incredible journey to Thailand’s signature destinations, offering our guests a wide variety of the kingdom’s exotic culture, scenic beauty, fascinating outdoors recreations and fabulous entertainment.

Your introduction to this magical kingdom begins with Bangkok, a vibrant international city with a tasteful blend of East and West, dazzling landmarks and boundless entertainment — from gourmet restaurants and space age nightclubs to colorful night markets and hip bars. We then bring you to the ancient cities of Phitsanulok and Sukhothai, home to a few of Thailand’s greatest historical landmarks and ancient temples. Next, destination Chiang Mai, a city with a beautiful cultural personality blessed with majestic natural beauty, where our guests enjoy a memorable experience to a local elephant camp, embark on elephant rides and river rafting, and visit a primitive hilltribe village that has endured the test of time.

Finally, arrive by road to Chiang Rai. A warm reception invites our guests on an invigorating Mai Kok River excursion, where visitors can admire Northern Thailand’s alluring countryside aboard a long-tail riverboat and atop a giant elephant, followed by cultural visits to several timeless hilltribe villages. A visit to the Golden Triangle takes you to a place where the borders of Thailand, Myanmar and Laos converge, and a region forever known for its opium production and drug trafficking, sourcing over half the world’s illegal heroin.
