Whether it’s Bangkok, Phuket, Chiang Mai or Ko Samui, this Southeast Asian paradise is a holiday destination for outdoor adventurers and seaside detoxers alike. Whatever your travel taste, we have a trip that will satisfy your wanderlust. These are the best small-group tours in Thailand.

From the serene jungle waterfalls and majestic temples of the north, to the dreamy beaches, islands and lakes of the south, visiting Thailand is a feast for the eyes. Otherworldly limestone karst towers tower over gentle green-blue lakes, giant mountains look out over endless rice fields and tropical forests, and creatures big and small populate every nook and cranny of seemingly undiscovered nature spots. The best way to uncover Thailand’s hidden beauty spots, as well as its incredible cuisine and unique cultures, is with Culture Trip’s expert local guides. Our trips are designed to immerse you fully in your destination, avoiding the tourist traps and showing you an authentic slice of Thailand. So, what say you? Check out our collection of Thai tours and book your spot on a Culture Trip adventure.

Incredible Thailand and Laos by Train – a rail experience like no other

The beauty of Thailand is that its neighbours are just as friendly, and just as beautiful. That’s why we felt the need to incorporate magical Laos into this behemoth two-week Rail Trip. In Thailand you’ll explore the ancient ruins of Sukhothai and dine on street food delights in Chiang Mai, where you’ll also learn to rustle up authentic Thai dishes on a cooking masterclass. Then it’s on to Lampang and an ethical elephant sanctuary, where you can feed beautiful Asian elephants and give them a playful mud bath. You’ll also bamboo raft down Wang River and barbecue under the stars in our jungle glamping site. The adventure continues in Laos, where we’ll swap trains for a river cruise down the Mekong. Meet rural whisky-making villagers, discover spiritual caves and feast on authentic local dishes. You’ll hike to the extraordinary Kuang Si Falls before taking a high-speed train to Vang Vieng, kayaking down the Nam Song River and jumping on the sleeper train back to Bangkok, for one last day of exploration in the Thai capital.

Thailand, Cambodia & Vietnam – a complete Southeast Asia experience

Why settle for just two classic Southeast Asian destinations when you can explore three on this 11-day border-crossing epic? The adventure starts in Bangkok, where our Thai Local Insider will give you a comprehensive tour of the capital. From ultra modern skyscrapers to ancient side streets, you’ll discover the city’s most fascinating districts and visit three of the city’s most famous temples. Then it’s time to delve into Bangkok’s unbelievable culinary scene with a Tuk Tuk food tour of the city, which will whizz you around the city, stopping off at bustling markets, street food vendors and local restaurants. Having enjoyed the Bangkok nightlife your journey will continue over to Cambodia, where you’ll visit Angkor Wat at sunrise, watch an acrobatic circus show and embark on an urban forage food tour in Phnom Penh. You’ll cross into Vietnam by speedboat, continuing the water theme with an overnight cruise down the Mekong, as well as an exploration of the river’s canals, islets and rural communities via traditional sampan rowing boat. The tour ends with a guided market visit, city tour and cooking class in Ho Chi Minh City.
