Thailand (once, Siam). Never colonized by the Europeans—although they came in droves to shop at the floating markets. And Laos, kingdom of a million elephants. Landlocked. And subject to the whims of its neighbors. The richness of life in these two Southeast Asian countries is simply indescribable.
This is a three-day sample extension. Remember that R. Crusoe can create a Bangkok itinerary of any length to meet your exact specifications.
R. Crusoe & Son has five short custom journeys into Indochina that you can mix and match. There are all sorts of ways to configure them. Take one or two (or all five), and add them to Crusoe’s Dream of Indochine guided tour. Or put some or all of them together for a wonderfully unique way to experience Southeast Asia. Have we mentioned that we throw in the best hotels and match you up with the top guides around?
Read on for information about our Bangkok, Thailand, extension, then see our other Indochine extensions: Vietnam Highlands, Laos, Chiang Mai, Chiang Rai, and/or aboard the luxurious Eastern & Oriental Express train through Thailand and Malaysia and into Singapore.
In Bangkok, we focus on the city’s endangered klongs (canals), authentic and explored via longtail riverboat. Examine some of the city’s most important wats (temple monasteries) as well as the Grand Palace. In the company of a private guide, step inside Jim Thompson’s house. He was an American entrepreneur with a keen eye for traditional Thai art and architecture who mysteriously disappeared in Cameroon some years back. Visit Vimanmek Teak Mansion, quite old and quite unique. And soak in the city’s wildness, the edginess of its street life. Plus delight in some of the best Asian food ever to pass your lips.
