Whether you’re interested in the jungles of Chiang Mai, the coastlines of Phuket or the bustling streets of Bangkok, you’re best off exploring Thailand with a private guide on one of our immersive itineraries, which you can also book as a private trip.

There’s plenty of pros for going private. Obviously it means you can keep the guest-list locked down, so you can enjoy memory-making travel experiences with only the ones you love most. It also allows for far greater flexibility on travel dates, group sizes (minimum of 4) and even age requirements. Simply get in touch with our Travel Experts to organise your personalised Culture Trip adventure.

Thailand, Cambodia and Vietnam

Two countries not enough for you? How about three then! Bangkok is once again the starting point of this amazing 11-day itinerary, but we’ll end up 741km (461mi) away in Ho Chi Minh City. In the Thai capital you’ll visit three of the city’s most iconic temples on a guided tour of the city, before resting your feet as you’re whizzed around the city on a Tuk Tuk during a thrilling food tour. From there it’s across the border into Cambodia, where you’ll watch a local Phare circus show and visit Angkor Wat at sunrise. Cross into Vietnam via speedboat and continue your exploration of the Mekong with a river cruise. Use a traditional row boat to visit rural villages and discover the canals and islets of the Mekong Delta, before returning to modern civilisation in Ho Chi Minh, where a market visit, cooking class and city tour awaits.

We are proud that, for more than a decade, millions like you have trusted our award-winning recommendations by people who deeply understand what makes certain places and communities so special.

Our Trips are suitable for both solo travelers, couples and friends who want to explore the world together.
