SMALL group touring specialists Back-Roads Touring has unveiled its new Asia brochure for 2019-20 travel, featuring a range of tours, each including improved itineraries, brand new culinary discoveries and hand-picked boutique accommodation.

“We place huge value in customer feedback and have used this to develop revised itineraries and a new brochure that reflects both our new and loyal Back-Roads travellers’ desire to explore South-East Asia,” Back-Roads Touring General Manager — Global Sales, David Gendle said.

New culinary discoveries are included in the 13-day Wonders of Thailand, where travellers will get to visit a tea plantation, pluck their own Assam tea leaves and learn the ancient art of making tea by hand. Other highlights from the tour include Bangkok and Kanchanaburi, before catching a train ride along the Death Railway, where travellers pay visits to the Kanchanaburi War Cemetery and the River Kwai bridge. Additionally, travellers will go on a dinner river cruise along the Sakae Krang River and visit the forest temple of Wat Phra That Doi Din Kiu. The itinerary is priced from $3,849 per person.

“Adjusting some of the timings of our itineraries and their inclusions has ensured the tours offer a more leisurely paced feel, providing our guests with plenty of time to explore each destination at their own pace and indulge in one-of-a-kind experiences usually reserved for locals,” he said.

Gendle also said the revisedWonders of Thailandwill now see guests stay at the charming Sibsan Resort in northern Chiang Mai.
