10 days - November 16-25, 2018
$1995 Includes Airfare from LAX!

A.C.T.’s new vacation combines two of Southeast Asia’s most popular destinations! Experience history, culture, exciting shopping and fine hotels at a leisurely pace. Spend five days in Bangkok, capital of Thailand, where glass towers and golden temples compete for skyline prominence. Bangkok is a vibrant mecca of open-air bazaars, floating markets, hip bars and street-food stalls. Then, fly to Siem Reap, Cambodia and for three days explore the “Lost City of Angkor,” once the capital of the ancient Khmer Empire, which ruled the country from the 9th to the 13th century. The city and its fascinating temples were slowly covered by jungle until they were lost to civilization. At the end of the 19th century, the jungle was cleared to reveal the “8th Wonder of the World”--the ancient Temples of Angkor Wat--today an UNESCO World Heritage Site. First class and deluxe hotels with brunch-style breakfasts, comprehensive guided sightseeing, a special Thanksgiving dinner in Cambodia—all this and more is included, as well as airfare from Los Angeles. Happy Thanksgiving, indeed!

Nov. 16 & 17: Your exciting journey begins as you fly tonight from Los Angeles to Thailand, “Land of Smiles.”

Today we introduce you to this vibrant city.  Your morning tour of Bangkok is highlighted by some of the outstanding Buddhist temples (wats) in the capital.  Visit Wat Trimitr with its invaluable 5-ton solid gold statue of Buddha and Wat Po, featuring the colossal 150 foot long “Reclining Buddha.”  See the White Marble Temple representing the finest example of Thai architecture.  Afternoon at leisure, with an optional tour of the Royal Palace, real-life setting for the musical “The King and I.”
