At the moment both the international and domestic airports in Bangkok remain closed. It is unfortunately not possible to say when they will open, but it is likely that there will be further disruption after this point as 100,000 plus tourists attempt to leave Bangkok.
The following tours are departing from Bangkok this weekend:
Journey through Laos 6 December
Highlights and Hilltribes 6 December
Northern Adventure 6 December
Elephants and Adventure 6 December
Kanchanaburi Extension 4 December
These tours are operating, however we do of course appreciate that it's not possible for most pax to fly into Bangkok at the moment. Thai Airways however are in the process of arranging relief flights from London into a nearby airport and are then arranging transfers to Bangkok itself and we would advise all travellers to contact their airline and / or booking agent in order to ascertain what, if any, laternative arrangements have been made for them.
Highlights and Hilltribes, Northern Adventure and Elephants and Adventure all depart Bangkok shortly after the tours start, to go to Chiang Mai. For those clients who are able to reroute their flights into Chiang Mai, it will be possible to join the tour from there. If you intend on doing this please contact us so that we can make the necessary arrangements. Accommodation would be booked for you from 6th December in Chiang Mai, at no additional cost. These tours are all scheduled to reach Chiang Mai from Bangkok on 8 December, and so the tours would be unaccompanied by a tour leader until that point, however our representatives in Chiang Mai would be able to assist in the interim.
The Journey through Laos will run on an amended itinerary (final details to be confirmed). If you are unable to reach Bangkok overland then you will be able to join the tour in Chiang Mai on 8 December. If you intend on doing this please contact us so that we can make the necessary arrangements. Accommodation would be booked for you from 6th December in Chiang Mai, at no additional cost. This tour is scheduled to reach Chiang Mai from Bangkok on 8 December, and so would be unaccompanied by a tour leader until that point, however our representatives in Chiang Mai would be able to assist in the interim.
Chiang Mai can be flown into via a number of regional hubs, including Kuala Lumpur, Singapore and Taipei.
Alternatively, if you are able to fly into Kuala Lumpur then we can assist with making the journey overland to start your tour in Bangkok. Please let us know if you intend to do this so that we can make any necessary arrangements. Please note that we would also be able to assist with travelling overland from other regional hubs, but recommend Kuala Lumpur as this is the most straightforward.
Should you be unable to take up either of these options then please contact your booking agent to discuss your options.
