The Active Traveler offers a first circuit on Thailand based on a frame inspired by trips I made earlier.

This tour allows you to discover the attractions of Thailand visiting Bangkok, the northern and southern Thailand. The proposed route is suitable for a first visit to Thailand and allows a first contact with its landscapes, its nature, its ubiquitous temples, its population, its way of life. It should make you want to quickly come back to a deeper visit, region by region.
