Welcome to Thailand, the land of smiles! Upon your arrival at the International Airport, you will be welcomed and greeted by your guide and you are escorted to your chosen hotel in Bangkok.

Please remember that hotel check-in times are after midday – unless the hotel has some rooms already available.
If you do arrive early you can leave your luggage at the reception and we would encourage you to get out and explore Bangkok – but please take a hotel business card so that you will be able to find your way back. Before leaving the hotel, please contact the hotel reception staff to take a note to advise your room number for your tour leader and if you already have any other contact details please provide them as well. For those interested, your tour guide will be happy to escort you to a local restaurant to sample the delights of Thai cuisine and toast to a great start of what will be an unforgettable journey in Thailand.
