The Real Deal On this seven-night trip, you can see three faces of Thailand: a modern metropolis, a jungle on the banks of the Kwai Noi River, and an ancient kingdom. You'll start with a three-night stay at Bangkok's four-star Park Plaza Soi 18. You'll also have a half-day guided tour and a full day to discover the city on your own. Kanchanaburi, near the Myanmar border, is the next stop, with a two-night stay at the River Kwai Resotel and visits to the city's floating markets and the Bridge Over the River Kwai. After a one-night stay at the Krungsri River Hotel in Ayutthaya, capital of 14th-18th century Siam and home to nearly 700-year-old temples, you'll return to Bangkok for a final night and full day to spend at your leisure. Included in the price: airfare from Los Angeles, seven hotel nights, all transfers, daily breakfast, and several guided tours with entrance fees. From $1,409—including airport taxes and fees.
