Nostalgic Siam & Burma



Why nostalgic?   “Siam” evokes The King And I with its beautiful people, stunning palaces, and gorgeous silks.   And this is exactly what you will see and experience during this intensive and intriguing visit to energetic Bangkok.   Our Road to Mandalay takes us into a landscape of lakes and mountains, and temples and pagodas, with their strong spiritual unpinning of Buddhism. Long inaccessible to foreigners we can now enter this complex world to experience its mysteries at first hand.   Perhaps we can better understand the transition from the Burma of nostalgia to the emerging modern Myanmar.  And finally, we return to Thailand and the exotic hill town of Chiang Mai for a change of scenery, style, and adventure.

As always, our small group will enjoy the benefits of a professional escort to complement local guides, the best available accommodations, various and sometimes unusual means of transport, with an emphasis on local gourmet cuisine.   In addition to museums, palaces and temples, we visit markets and factories and ride the elephants.

Our journey begins at the legendary Oriental Hotel in   Bangkok.   Please join us.
