Get a close-up of deep Thai culture and come face-to-face with its warm and welcoming rural people in this off-the-tourist-trail journey through Thailand’s south. Explore villages and the waterways that represent the lifelines of the local people. Sample traditional cooking set against the backdrop of world’s most stunning and scenic lakes, Cheow Long, enshrouded in dense, tropical rainforest. Drift on a languid river aboard a long-tail boat and learn about local fishing villages.

The lodging of this southern Thailand journey is part of what makes it special – your abode will range from a selection of local homestays to a floating raft house, and you’ll also be treated to small eco-conscious resort and a historical hotel.
