Kingdom of Thailand
The tour features panoramic views and breathtaking scenery plus
a visit to a Buddhist Academy, an aquarium, the Monkey Cliff in
Bang Saen and a small village specializing in stone sculptures.
A stop will also be made at an Orchid Farm where you will have an
opportunity to marvel at-and to buy-some of Thailand's very beautiful
Nong Nooch Village
A short trip from Pattaya, you will find Nong Nooch Village &
Country Resort, which features orchid gardens, elephant rides, demonstrations
of Thai arts and crafts and a splendid cultural show with everything
from cock fighting to a performance of classical and folk dances.
Elephants have been vitally important to Thailand's history both
in times of war and times of peace. Indeed, they are still used
daily in the teakwood forests of the Kingdom, being much more efficient
than any mechanized vehicles or equipment. You will be able to see
how they work in the forests and how they are cared for by their
mahouts, including the daily bathing of both the baby elephants
and their parents.
Located just off the coast of Pattaya, in the Gulf of Thailand,
Koh Larn (Larn Island) is one of the most popular excursions that
you will enjoy. Board a boat on the beach for the short voyage to
the island, where there is time for sunning, snorkelling or swimming
before a lunch at an outdoor restaurant on the island. For those
who wish, there is also a glass-bottomed boat for a glimpse of the
beautiful coral formations.
Of course there is more to Pattaya than just its beach, so we have
organized a tour which will enable you to enjoy some of the other
aspects of this area. The magnificent Buddha image in the foothills
of Cholburi Province is worth a trip in itself; but you will also
visit a floating village in Chachoengsao Province, where you will
be given lunch before visiting a farmer's house. A stop at a ceramic
tile factory nearby discloses the combination of ancient as well
as modern techniques and, following a visit to a bat cave, you will
have an opportunity to marvel at Thailand's very beautiful orchids
at the Orchid Farm.
Only 30 minutes away by boat, from Ban Phe in Rayong province, Koh
Samet, formally known as Koh Keo Phitsadan, is a national park run
by the Forestry Department. The island has beautiful beaches and
fascinating underwater life amongst the picturesque coral reefs
- a delight for divers.
A stay at one of our famous beach resorts is not complete without
an evening trying a seafood dinner at a local restaurant in South
Pattaya. We have selected a set seafood basket which will allow
you to sample some of the fresh seafood available in our Kingdom.
Of course the meal is not complete until after you have savoured
some of our fresh fruits that are in season.
After a good dinner why not enjoy a good show ! An evening at a
unique cabaret show - starring some of the world's most beautiful
transvestites. The lights, sounds, costumes and performances of
over 100 dancers will leave you in awe-an excellent way to round
out the evening.
