Description

An unusual itinerary, combining two completely opposite kingdoms of Asia.

The Himalayan kingdom of Bhutan declines from the peaks more than 7000 meters high to the Indian plain where flows the Brahmaputra. It is a country about the same size as Switzerland, but it has less than a million inhabitants. It is called "Druk Yul", that is "country of the thunder-dragon".

The kingdom of Thailand where the tour ends with a short sea stay in one of the most famous islands, Phuket, and a stop in Bangkok, a city that always manages to amaze and entertain travelers.
