Thailand distinguishes itself as the only country in Southeast Asia never to have been colonized. The result? A well-preserved, culturally rich and vibrant land of warm, happy people. What’s more, Thailand has endured 19 military coups since 1932, while still managing to remain a peaceful nation. Isolated beaches, bustling cities, magical mountains and sleepy river valleys offer countless opportunities for discovery, whether you choose to plan a private, customized trip of the country, steal four days away for a quick escape, or to combine it, à la carte, with some of our other Southeast Asian adventures.
Explore the spiritual sanctuary of Chiang Mai and its many elaborate wats (temples), nestled into the mountains of northern Thailand. Visit the traditional Hmong people of Chang Khien, where you’ll meet the local villagers. Ride an elephant through a lush forest and take a cruise along the Mae Ping River. With fresh Thai fare to enjoy every day and a charming boutique hotel to unwind in every night, you’ll feel transported to another world.
