Thailand & Cambodia

LOST CITIES EXPLORER - It doesn't take long to discover why Thailand is dubbed the ‘Land of Smiles’. Yes the scenery is beautiful, the elephants adorable and beaches Pinterest-worthy, but it's the gentle spirit of the Thai people that stays with you. Across the border Cambodia is more laid back and relaxed, allowing you to take in the incredible ancient history of Angkor Wat and indulge your inner Indiana Jones (or Lara Croft) as you explore overgrown temples and relics. *** 2021 Price: $4600p.p. is available on Mar 25, Apr 22, May 27, Jun 24, Jul 22, Aug 19 and Sep 23 departures, please see details below ***
