Thailand’s reputation as one of the most beautiful countries on the planet is well-earned. Our Thailand adventure tours will take you places that seem to exist only in dreams. From walking through ancient temples housing massive golden reclining Buddhas to sailing to the aptly-named James Bond Island (the location of the 007 film The Man With The Golden Gun), you’ll take in some truly extraordinary sights. Here, you’ll come face to face with friendly elephants and their human caretakers, the legendary mahouts; you’ll visit with the friendly inhabitants of a village that actually floats on the water; you’ll ride a long-tail boat up the legendary Mekong River.
And you’ll do so in the relaxed and pampered style that Classic Journeys is known for. Thailand luxury travel is a specialty of ours, and we offer only the very best accommodations. You’ll enjoy calm nights at a five-star beach resort in Phuket, watch the sunrise from the balcony of a private resort on the banks of the Mae Ping River, and take in stunning views of neighboring Myanmar and Laos at one of the world’s best jungle resorts.
And nothing can prepare you for the experience of authentic Thai cuisine. From a delectable Thai-style lunch served aboard a traditional Chinese junk (the ancient sailing vessel design that’s still used today) to eating savory noodles on the streets of Phuket, the spices and flavors of Thailand will overwhelm your senses. You’ll even have your own private lesson in Thai cooking from an expert chef so that you can impress your friends and family back home!
Most of all, you’ll understand why Thailand has earned its reputation as one of the world’s friendliest countries. It starts with your guide, a Thai native who’ll quickly seem like a family member; along the way, you’ll make a wholly unexpected and delightful array of new friends, from boat captains to local farmers and merchants. They’re happy to welcome you and share the wonders of Thailand, one of the jewels of Southeast Asia.
