If you have a few days to spare at the beginning or the end of your holiday, we highly recommend a visit to neighbouring Cambodia to experience the charming city of Siem Reap and to view the iconic Angkor Wat. Alternatively if you are passing through Bangkok and have some spare time, why not join one of our 3 city tours that take in the city's main sights.
