Sights Visited on This Tour

The history of Ayutthaya dates back to the supposed foundation in 1350, although some temples in the marvelous ancient city have been known to exist before then.

Bangkok, Thailand’s famous capital, also known as a large city known for ornate shrines and vibrant street life. The boat-filled Chao Phraya River feeds it's network of canals.

Chiang Mai is home to hundreds of elaborate Buddhist temples, including the 14th-century Wat Phra Singh and 15th-century Wat Chedi Luang.

Chiang Rai is an idyllic town famous for its magnificently ornate White and Blue Temples. It also has a taste of indigenous culture with the cozy Akha Village.

That might happen to you, too! Experience elephants up-close while feeding and bathing them. Learn about herbal treatments and make their vitamin balls.

Lying at the source of the Mae Klong River, the majestic bodies of water in Kanchanaburi are among the most spectacular defining characteristics of the town.

Lopburi is a province in the central region of Thailand. The province is divided into 11 administrative districts, and Mueang Lopburi District is the capital.

Phayao Lake

Kwan Phayao is a lake in northern Thailand. Kwan, a word from the northern Thai language, means large swamp. The shape of the lake is a nearly-half-circle-moon shape.

The ancient city of Phitsanulok has a long history dating back to the Khmer era, generally called “Muaeng Song Kwae” with reference to the two rivers passing through it.

This river used to be the upper section of the Mae Klong River, however, in the 1960s, this river was named the Khwae Yai River meaning 'Big River.'

This steel bridge is one of the important historical landmarks and memorials in Thailand. It is a symbol of the province and is a recommended place in Kanchanaburi.

A town founded in the 13th century on the fringe of the Khmer empire. The exact year is unknown, but according to the Fine Arts Office it was between 1238 and 1257.

Sukhothai Archaelogical Park

Located in a beautiful setting of lawns, lakes and trees in north-central Thailand, was the capital of the Sukhothai kingdom in 1238.

Designed by Colin St Clair Oakes and maintained by the Commonwealth Commission. There are 6,982 buried there, mostly Australian, British, and Dutch.

It's a Theravada Buddhist temple in Chiang Mai. The temple is often referred to as "Doi Suthep", although this is actually the name of the mountain where it's located.

Wat Rong Khun, perhaps better known to foreigners as the White Temple, is a privately owned art exhibit in the style of a Buddhist temple in Chiang Rai Province.

The Blue Temple is immediately recognizable for its brilliant shade of rich sapphire. The temple walls, roof, and surrounding statues are all covered in this gorgeous hue.

Just finished the ‘Charming Thailand’ tour with Travel Talk Tours. No reviews for this specific tour prior to booking so had a little nervousness prior to the start. However, to Travel Talks credit the tour was absolutely superb – the promised accomodation was excellent for the most part and the excursions were interesting and very well organised.

The projected budget for visiting the temples/Grand Palace etc were spot on and Andy the tour guide was genuinely amazing. I often write reviews of my experiences on google but Andy was without question, one of the most genuine, patient and kind guides I’ve ever had!! Shout out to the driver and his son who also accompanied us on our 8 day tour – both of them absolute machines!!

I’m UK based and expected the group to follow the same pattern but instead it was a multicultural group. With UK, American, Spanish and Canadian participants of all ages/genders plus some single travellers. This melting pot proved to be an incredible experience, offering me the chance to make (hopefully) lifelong friends – I’m looking at you Mary-Lou and Gray!!

So as a first time customer of Travel Talk, I’d rate them 5/5 – the pre and post booking customer service (prior to leaving the UK) was awesome and the trip over delivered on its execution and quality!!

Great stuff – Travel talk are highly recommended 👍
