Dubai, Bangkok & Kanchanaburi

Sprawling Dubai soars beyond the clouds with its distinctive skyline dominated by imposing skyscrapers (including the world’s tallest), its striking blend of Arabian tradition and contemporary world-class facilities an icon of the modern generation. A showcase of divine luxury, Dubai offers a multitude of stunning hotels and resorts, stunning souks and white beaches as well as world-class shopping and nightlife.  

The bustling metropolis of Bangkok is the thriving economic, cultural and political heartland of Thailand, providing a charming combination of tradition and modernity.

As one of the most populous and popular cities in south-east Asia, Bangkok is a paradise for shoppers, with its luxury malls providing quality goods at bargain prices, and a Weekend Market offering a wide selection of souvenirs to take home from your holiday in Thailand. Revellers will also enjoy the wide selection of clubs and bars which will provide many holiday memories.

Beyond the numerous leisure options in Bangkok, the Thai capital also contains a rich array of historic and religious sites of interest. The impressive Grand Palace provides some stunning photo opportunities on the capital’s Rattanakosin Island, whilst Wat Arun (the Temple of the Dawn), Wat Phra Kaeo (The Emerald Buddha) and Wat Pho (complete with a reclining Buddha) provide a fascinating insight into the Buddhist traditions of Thailand.

Kanchanaburi is the ideal destination for adventurous nature lovers who are looking for an exhilarating Thailand holiday amongst breathtaking scenery. With features of outstanding natural beauty including historic caves, waterfalls, lush forests, rivers and reservoirs, Kanchanaburi offers activities including canoeing, fishing, rafting, mountain biking and golfing. Jungle and elephant trekking in the tropical forests and the experience of living in a bamboo raft can also be sampled by visitors who wish to get close to nature, whilst the exotic species of birds offer a paradise for ornothologists.

The mountainous north-west of the province, near the border with Myanmar, provides the source for the region’s two major rivers, the Little Kwai River (Maenam Khwae Noi) and the Big Kwai River (Maenam Khwae Yai), which comprise the Maenam Mae Klong. It is in the area that visitors to Kanchanaburi can also see the famous ‘Bridge over the River Kwai’ and see the infamous Death Railway.
