Special Interest Tours
The appeal of Thailand is far-reaching and varied and we hope that our Special Interest tours may tempt you. We have a gastronomic tour of the country and another journey for those interested in wildlife and nature. Our Action Adventure is an adrenaline-filled escapade and our Family Fun package is equally exciting. You may wish to venture into Isan through roads less travelled, or perhaps you’d like to learn to dive on the heavenly island of Koh Tao.
A Feast for Foodies (FF14)
This two-week gastronomic holiday will take you through Thailand, visiting some of our most magical places, with the focus on our delicious a varied cuisine. Although we are sure that you will enjoy our wonderful, rich, aromatic food throughout, we have identified twelve special ‘culinary highlights’. Your gourmet journey will take you from colourful bazaars to fine-dining restaurants, from floating markets to beach cafes, and from huge food courts in the city to simple street food at night. You will visit three cookery schools where you will learn the basics of Thai cooking and some of the regional differences.

Isan is a wonderful region of north eastern Thailand that is rarely visited by tourists. If you’re looking for roads less travelled, then this is the tour for you. You will have the opportunity to spot wild elephants in Khao Yai National Park, gasp as over a million bats leave their cave at dusk, sample real, authentic Isan food, learn about Granny Mo and how she saved a town, wander through ancient Khmer temple ruins, watch local fishermen on a sunset cruise along the Mekong River, cross into Laos and spend a day in the capital, enjoy the bizarre sculpture park of Sala Kaew Ku and climb the rickety wooden walkways that lead to the seven levels of Wat Phu Tok, the mountain temple.

You’ll climb the seven tiers of the beautiful Erawan falls and take a bicycle tour through the wetlands of Khao Sam Roi. In Khao Sok, you’ll stay in a floating bungalow on the edge of a stunning lake, with your own kayaks to explore the water.
