Bangkok’s floating markets, ruins, extravagant palaces, temples, tasty spices, and vibrant culture have been tempting travelers for ages. But this coveted destination has been, largely out-of-reach economically for most smart-luxury wanderers – until now. Due to popular demand, Friendly Planet Travel, one of the Internet's leading group travel providers, just brought back the ultra-affordable Taste of Thailand tour for $1,099 – and that includes round-trip airfare! That’s quite a steal considering flights alone to Thailand could set you back about $825!
The tour takes savvy travelers to three of Thailand's most fascinating and awe-inspiring cities: Bangkok, Ayutthaya, and Kanchanaburi. This irresistible itinerary includes stops at Thailand’s most beautiful historical landmarks and tourist destinations. Travelers will see the Wat Chai Watanaram monastery, the Bang Pa-In summer palace, the ancient city of Ayutthaya (famous for her ruins), and the Ratchada Grand Theatre – one of the largest stages in the world. Also packed into the trip are visits to the Temple of the Emerald Buddha, the Marble Temple, the Wat Arun temple, and the renowned “Bridge On the River Kwai” – a historic landmark from WWII, and the basis of the classic 1957 film. For the animal lovers, the trip also features a visit to an elephant camp.
Round-trip airfare is from Los Angeles via Air China. Also included in this price quote are all ground transfers, intra-Thailand flights, superior first-class hotel accommodations, daily breakfast, and comprehensive sightseeing with a local, English-speaking expert guide.
