IN A NUTSHELL
The allure of Southeast Asia is easy to understand, timeworn traditions, fascinating architecture, and stop you in your tracks beauty are distinctions hard to ignore. And if you’re going to one country, why not two? Combining neighbors Thailand, and Cambodia, is a great way to experience the regions’ unique cultures, plus their proximity makes going from one to the other easy to swallow.
A scintillating brew of sights and sounds, Bangkok is a captivating mix of past and present. Underscored by a powerful Buddhist legacy, this vibrant metropolis has the best of both worlds.

An hour flight north from the capital is the 700-year-old city of Chang Mai nestled in a mountain range amidst vestiges of 13th-century ruins and ornate Buddhist temples. Like Bangkok, the past and present here merge seamlessly. Considerably more laid back than the capital, it’s a perfect spot to unwind.
