There has never been a program that brings you so close to the truly authentic Thailand than this four week road trip.
You can join the program any week. The four different parts of this road trip are always running in the listed sequence, repeating every four weeks. So, depending on when you join, you would just start and end in a different place. This has no impact on your program. There is no recommended week to start with. No matter where you finish your program you will be taken to Bangkok and end your program there.
Mostly Thai style dishes will be served during the trip. This means that the meals will consist of mostly rice and noodles. There will usually be some vegetables and some meat in these dishes, but vegetarian options can be arranged as well. We do not offer Western style meals, but you can feel free to supplement the menu at your own cost to include any of your favorite dishes.
