Have a taste for unexpected adventure? This trip has it all—exotic locations, breathtaking scenery, and even a brush with royalty. You'll begin in Bangkok and cruise along the city's waterways, viewing temples and serene family homes. From there, a flight over the Himalayas lands in faraway Paro, Bhutan. You'll spend time outdoors, hiking to the Tango Monastery and taking in the local culture. A visit to Bumthang, home of many ancient temples and sacred sites, is next on the itinerary. Here you'll learn about one of Bhutan's most revered historical figures, Guru Rinpoche—and you'll even hike to one of his favorite sites, Tiger's Nest. In all, it's a journey of extraordinary sights, sounds and flavors.
