Audley offers both inland and coastal cruising in Thailand with everything from short overnight cruises on the Chao Phraya out of Bangkok to island-hopping adventures that allow you to discover hidden bays, relax on white-sand beaches and snorkel among coral gardens.
Cruise the River Kwai to see the bridge, and also Buddhist temples and Khmer ruins. Take a longer trip from Kanchanaburi or discover the limestone karsts and coral-rich waters of Phang Nga Bay and the Andaman Sea. The boats that ply these waters range from comfortably converted rice barges to colonial-style river cruisers and romantic ocean clippers.
