Thai beaches and islands

After experiencing the traditional culture and ancient temples of Myanmar, you can head down to the southern Thai islands where you can go island hopping around Krabi, snorkel around the turtle island of Ko Tao, or explore the jungles of Khao Sok National Park. While Myanmar has its own beach destination at Ngapali, Thailand offers a greater choice of beaches and islands, making it a perfect add-on to a cultural trip.

Central Thailand and Myanmar

If you’re going to Myanmar you’re likely to end up in Bangkok first, as this is one of the regional hubs for international flights. So why not stay for a couple of days in Bangkok, wandering the markets and exploring its network of canals by longtail boat. For some wildlife spotting, go on a safari in nearby Khao Yai National Park, or stay in a floating bamboo house along the river Kwai before taking a scenic ride on the infamous Burma Railway. Our Central Thailand trips will give you a true taste of cultural Thailand, making for an excellent complement to your Myanmar itinerary. From Thailand, Myanmar is only a short hop away…
