Journeys Within: First Time Asia

Imagine a land of lush rainforests and golden beaches, where bustling markets and grand palaces share the landscape with dazzling coral reefs and ancient temples shrouded in thick jungle. Imagine being able to spend your days cruising through floating markets and wandering amongst the timeless remains of lost civilisations. Imagine no more!

This stunning introduction to Asia takes in some of the most iconic locations anywhere on the continent, beginning amongst the captivating canals and backstreets of Bangkok. You’ll explore the city by boat, tuk tuk and Skytrain, visit the famous floating market at Damnoen Saduak and enjoy the colour and clamour of life along the Chao Phraya River. In Chiang Mai you’ll then have an opportunity to try your hand at Thai cooking and visit an elephant sanctuary, before leaving the dense mountain jungles behind and heading for the spectacular Cambodian temples of Angkor.

The splendour of one of the world’s greatest archaeological sites is then further enhanced by a cruise amongst the floating villages of Tonle Sap, before you fly south towards the white beaches of Phuket. Here you will have time to relax and enjoy the turquoise waters of the Andaman Sea and kayak around the caves and lagoons of the Phang Nga National Park.
