Discover the traditional way of life in a H’mong village, support the rehabilitation of the endangered Asian elephant, step back in time to imagine the ancient kingdom of Sukhothai’s ‘Dawn of Happiness’ and try your hand at conjuring up some Thai
gastronomic delights.

Then we will heading over to Cambodia to Siem Reap and going to the ancient temples of Angkor Wat. Angkor, the former capital of the Khmer kingdom, is one of the wonders of the archeological world. Rediscovered at the end of the last century by French explorers this vast ruined city is becoming one of the most popular sites in Southeast Asia. Some of the highlights of this ancient capital, like the magnificent temple of Angkor Wat, the enigmatic Bayon within the walled city Angkor Thom, Ta Prohm, Preah Khan and Banteay Srei.
