The charm of Southeast Asia is hidden in the jungles and along the riverbanks on this 12-day excursion that will take you to see the treasures of Laos, Thailand, and Cambodia. It is almost as if there is a never ending shimmer along the forest green and rushing water, where cliffs and temples are equally majestic, while palaces remain regal in their opulence, and even in their ruin. From the birth of modern mountain cities to cultures that have remained unchanged for centuries, you will find Southeast Asia fascinating.
Your Thailand vacation begins with your arrival in Chiang Mai, considered to be the capital of the north. The city is surrounded by the lush jungle where the trees outside are as vibrant as the streets inside. Elephants have graced the countryside for millennia becoming ingrained into the civilizations they encountered; in the fringes of the city you will visit one of the many elephant camps that help to keep the sacred animal safe, along with providing the companionship that elephants enjoy. Chiang Mai is considered the culinary capital of Thailand, home to many of the dishes people know, and some that are a delightful surprise; a culinary tour of the day takes you to the local market and into the kitchen where the secrets of Thai cuisine are revealed to you. Visit the summit of Doi Suthep to not only take in the sensational vista of the city and surrounding mountains but to appreciate the opulent temple that offers a plateau to absorb all its wonder.
Arrive in Luang Prabang, Laos where the cityscape seems to be absorbed by the sensational trees, dipping in and out of the streets, as though the city was born of the jungle and not surrounded by it. Board a river cruiser that will take you along the riverbanks of the Mekong where the natural landscape brings magnificent karsts and limestone precipices, creating tremendous awe. Within the Ou Caves you will find, hidden beneath the dripping stonewall, thousands of images of Buddha looking out over the riverside. On the outskirts of Luang Prabang you will visit the marvelous hillside tribes who have lived within the countryside for centuries and continue their traditions, from how they build their homes to how they prepare their meals. Transfer to Siem Reap, Cambodia and come face to face with the remarkable temples of Angkor Wat, discovering the endless splendor of the ancient city and its surrounding religious centers. Your time in Southeast Asia will bring you to the elegance of history, hidden within the landscapes and displayed within the countries’ continued charm.
