Introduction

When one thinks of Thailand, images of pristine tropical islands, elephant sanctuaries and bustling cities spring to mind all at once. In a country so diverse, it can be hard to choose which places to see and where to go. In this suggested itinerary, sample all three environments and achieve a full understanding of this multifaceted country. Begin with the bright lights of Bangkok, continue to a beautiful elephant sanctuary surrounded by bamboo forest and finish out your trip on the beach in your own corner of paradise.

What people are saying

“I’ve been a customer of OROKO for the last 12 months and have booked family holidays, ski trips and short breaks. The whole experience is brilliant; you explain the type of holiday that you are hoping to have, without specifying necessarily where and the team will present you a series of ideas and options, all costed out. It takes away all the stress of planning a trip. On top of this, you receive a full itinerary, and all activities can be sourced in advance. I’m a big fan.”
