Trip Itinerary

  1. Bangkok, Thailand

    Ready to discover the unknown? Embrace the new and exotic? Delve deep into a richer-than-rich culture? You’re in EXACTLY the right place. First: say sawasdee (sah-wah-dee) to your fellow explorers. Then, we’ll kick things off with our first group dinner. Early disclosure: chawp pet noi (chop–pet-noy) is a phrase some of you will need to remember – meaning you like things ‘a little bit spicy’. Best used when ordering food.
