The Kingdom of Thailand is famous for its tropical beaches, holy temples, and vibrant street life, and there's no better way to see it than by train. Join us on a scenic, four-day, 800-mile trek past the shores of the Gulf of Thailand, through the sprawling metropolis of Bangkok, and up the peaks of the Thai Highlands. Along the way, we cross the Death Railway built by American and Allied POWs during WWII, sample the exotic foods of the night market, and witness how this mighty train battles through the country's punishing terrain and weather.
