An amazing journey through some of the less traversed tracks and trails in the northeast of the Kingdom of Siam – Thailand. Your voyage begins from the hustle and bustle of the busy streets of metropolitan Bangkok, filled with a mix of modern architecture, and ancient temples. The road then takes a quiet turn away from the skyscrapers and towards the remote mountains in the northeast, nearby Chiang Mai. Along the way, we introduce you to the history of ancient Ayutthaya, an infamous railway line by the River Kwai, ascend and descend a few breathtaking hills and mountains for the views.

There are several reasons why you should choose Exotic Voyages over US/European based travel agency:
In order to enter any of our destinations, foreigners are required to have proper travel documents. This includes a valid passport and tourist, business or work visa. However, the requirement for each country is different. Please contact us if you need help regarding your travel documents.
We understand safety is a big concern when you are traveling to a foreign country. But be assured that we put our clients' safety as our top priority and we take every measure possible to keep everything running as smooth as possible. That said, in general all of our destinations are safe places to travel to.
As we get discounted rates from hotels and partners, the total cost you pay will be cheaper or just marginally more expensive than if you booked directly yourself. That said, with our expert advice, local knowledge, contact and superior customer service, we believe the value of booking with us is much higher. More over, booking with us means you do not have to worry about all the details of the trip and have a team of travel professional take care of them for you.

I initially planned on organizing & planning my honeymoon to Thailand on my own, which is doable, but I am SO happy I decided to go with Exotic Voyages. I was hesitant initially to work with an oversea's travel agency, I was unsure if I was going to be taken advantage of. After reading reviews of the company I decided to at the very least reach out and see what they had to offer. I got in contact with them in June of 2018, over 6 months prior to our honeymoon and was surprised to get such a detailed response from Phuong Anh. After several revisions of the proposed itinerary (revisions based on my time frame shifts and interest shifts) we settled on our final itinerary. My favorite thing about using EV is that I had complete freedom to book as much or as little through them as I wanted. Our itinerary ended up being heavy on tours while in Bangkok, Kanchanaburi & Chaing Mai and very light once we got to Phuket & Koh Yao Yai. Phuong Anh (PA for short :) ) was incredible the entire process, she was very quick to respond to all of my questions in great detail and took care of all of the booking of hotels, domestic flights, tour guides, drivers, etc. The only thing I booked myself was our international flights, but PA would have done that as well if I needed. From the minute we arrived in Thailand we had 1st class service, we had a personal attendant take us from our arrival gate to a no wait customs officer (that saved a ton of time as there was a HUGE line) our baggage was taken from the baggage carousel straight to our private driver and we made it right to our hotel :) My husband unfortunately got very sick on the flight over to Bangkok (not in relation to any of the travel, just bad luck) and was down and out with a 103 fever. Our tour guide happened to call just to say hi and introduce herself when we got in and was very accommodating when I asked to move our scheduled tour for the next day. We ended up combining the rescheduled tour with another tour so that we didn't miss out on anything which was great! Every guide we had was so friendly and super knowledgeable. I will 100% use them again in the future if we end up traveling to another area that they work.READ MORE

Evaneos connected as to a local travel expert to plan a customized trip to Thailand, and Exotic Voyages created a spectacular experience. Our hotel accommodations were incredible, our guides were friendly & knowledgeable, and having a private driver and car made the day-to-day more convenient. We had the perfect balance of free time and planned activities, and the activities (i.e., food tours, elephant farm, floating markets, etc) were all amazing! Our travel expert was very responsive while planning the trip and during the trip. I would recommend Exotic Voyages without reservation, and I will absolutely be using them again for a future trip.

My husband and I had always been set on visiting Thailand for our honeymoon. We travel frequently (domestic and internationally) but wanted some help in coordinating and navigating the country. We worked with Andy Carroll for several months leading up to our departure and really customized every piece of the honeymoon.

We took a trip through Vietnam (Hanoi, Halong Bay, Hue/Hoi An), Cambodia (Siem Reap/Angkor Wat), and Thailand (Bangkok, Chiang Mai, Phuket) with Exotic Voyages and we are so impressed with the promptness and organization of this company! Our E.V. travel agent was Mai Phuong. She was quick with the email responses and thorough with her suggested itinerary. We like to pack our days full of activities and she was able to line up all of those in the short time we had available. Since we started the process over the summer, we had lots of time to do more of our own research and add things, change days/times for activities, and really fine-tune the trip. Mai Phuong never hesitated to jump right in and give suggestions or help us make everything fit. We took 5 internal flights on this trip and all of the transfers were perfectly coordinated without a glitch! We always had someone waiting to bring us to the hotel and and take us back to the airport, plus all the arranged guides were right on time each morning. They give you a choice of tiers for hotel quality/price, and whichever tier you select, you can be sure they have given you the best choice of hotels in that class. The communication was impeccable and we had packages waiting for us at reception on arrival for pick up times, local info, etc. This is our first time traveling with Exotic Voyages and we are thrilled with the excellent customer service and precision of our itinerary. We highly recommend this company and we would definitely use their services again! Thank you for a wonderful trip! Visited Januaray 2019 This review was originally posted on TripAdvisorREAD MORE
