Highlights
  • Step back into history at the 'bridge on the river kwai'
  • Impress your friends with your thai cooking skills
  • Receive a blessing from a monk at the temple of doi suthep
  • Visit a local village for an authentic khantoke dinner
  • Explore ayutthaya's ancient ruins

It’s difficult to fit all the varied experiences of northern Thailand into just one week, but we found a way. Through a combination of flights, boats and the omnipresent tuk tuk, travellers need not sacrifice cultural activities and inspiring sites on this comfort-focused trip. Experience golden monasteries, cooking classes and thriving night markets as well as the sobering 'Death Railway', where legions of POWs met a cruel fate in World War II. Prepare to return home a different person.

Most amazing trip ever! It wouldn't have been as enjoyable if I did it on my own. The tour guide made the trip very worthwhile.

Our guide Suwaree NAN Chuensom was absolutely the best hostess we could ever want. She was such a great guide taking care of everything we needed or didn't know we needed. The hotels that were chosen were above our expectations and the tours were diversed and very fun. May 2015

Solo Notes

We believe single travellers should not have to pay more to travel so our group trips are designed for shared accommodation and do not involve a single supplement. Single travellers joining group trips are paired in twin or multi-share accommodation with someone of the same sex for the duration of the trip. Some of our Independent trips are designed differently and single travellers on these itineraries must pay the single trip price.

Age Notes

Min. Age: You must be 18 to travel unaccompanied on a G Adventures tour. For minors travelling with a guardian over 21 years old, the minimum age is 12.

Physical Requirements Our small group adventures bring together people of all ages. It is very important you are aware that, as a minimum, an average level of fitness and mobility' is required to undertake our easiest programs. Travellers must be able to walk without the aid of another person, climb 3-4 flights of stairs, step on and off small boats, and carry their own luggage at a minimum. Travellers with a pre-existing medical condition are required to complete a short medical questionnaire, which must be signed by their physician. This is to ensure that travellers have the necessary fitness and mobility to comfortably complete their chosen trip. While our CEOs work hard to ensure that all our travellers are catered for equally, it is not their responsibility to help individuals who cannot complete the day's activities unaided. Please refer to the physical ratings in this Trip Details document for more information. The medical questionnaire can be found online at: www.gadventures.com/medical-form.
Rules & Other Requirements Illegal drugs will not be tolerated on any trips. Possessing or using drugs not only contravenes the laws of the land but also puts the rest of the group at risk. Smoking marijuana and opium is a part of local culture in some parts of the world but is not acceptable for our travellers. Our philosophy of travel is one of respect towards everyone we encounter, and in particular the local people who make the world the special place it is. The exploitation of prostitutes is completely contrary to this philosophy. Our CEOs have the right to expel any member of the group if drugs are found in their possession or if they use prostitutes.
