FSC is traveling to Thailand in November 2020! No, there won't be any skiing, just an exciting, small group adventure! The cities we will visit are Bangkok, Kanchanaburi, Nakhon Sawan, Sukhothai, Chiang Mai, and Chiang Rai. (*Optional Pre trip to Cambodia as well)
Thailand—once called Siam—is where independence, hospitality, and the traditional philosophy that “life is pleasure” casts a spell over every visitor. In a small group, you’ll weave your way into daily life to get an authentic glimpse of a culture that has gone untouched by western influence. Let locals lead you through their cities, villages, markets, and temples on this adventure from Bangkok to Chiang Rai.
Exploring Thailand from the cosmopolitan south to the remote northern hill tribes, you’ll witness Buddhist monks receiving alms at a dawn ceremony…walk along scenic stretches of the Mekong River…buy some fresh lemongrass in Bangkok’s floating market, visit an elephant care center. A local Trip Leader will help you gain an insider’s perspective into Thai culture as they connect you with locals—prepare a traditional meal alongside villagers, dine in a local home, and ride on a traditional wooden rice barge. Discover what captivates so many visitors in this tropical nation.
