Is This Trip Right for You?
This active program covers a good amount of ground each day. Expect from two to three hours walking on some touring days. The pace is fast, where you will encounter some uneven surfaces, stairs, steps and significant slopes. There are a few long tail boat rides included in this tour, which require agility to embark and disembark. There are 72 steps in the Angkor Wat Temple, 37 of which have a steep incline. It is recommended to wear comfortable shoes, and people who have knee problems may want to carry a walking stick. A few early wake-ups and two long drives, from Ayutthaya to Sukhothai and Sukhothai to Chiang Rai, are necessary to cover the territory. This is a Classic program. For more information, click here.
Gate 1 Travel itineraries may contain suggestions for activities for your leisure time; these suggestions do not constitute a recommendation nor an endorsement of any specific service provider and the decision to participate in any such activities should be made independently.

Morning tour of Wat Phra Kaew, the Temple of the Emerald Buddha, and the adjoining Grand Palace. Together they form the most impressive sights for visitors to Bangkok. Wat Phra Kaew consists of over 100 brightly colored buildings, golden spires and glittering mosaics, dating back to 1782, when Bangkok was founded. From Wat Phra Kaew continue to the Grand Palace. Despite the proximity of the two, there's a distinct contrast in style between the Thai-inspired Wat Phra Kaew and the European designs of the Grand Palace. It is important to note that this palace is used now only for occasional ceremonial purposes and is no longer the royal residence.
Approximate tour duration is 4 hours.
|Day #4||19 Nov 2022 - 30 Jun 2024||$38.00|

Upon arrival, change vehicles to the local Thai Combi which takes you up to the hill tribes, namely the Akha, Long Neck and Palong.

This tour requires walking up several steps as well as uneven pavement and trails to get to the small village.
Approximate tour duration is 5 hours.

This morning, visit the Queen Sirikit Botanic Garden (QSBG), located in the foothills of the Doi Suthep-Pui mountains north of Chiang Mai. QSBG was established in 1993, as the first botanical garden in Thailand. It covers an area of 6,500 acres and is named after Queen Sirikit. Follow the paths and take your time as you stroll through the lush grounds covered with exotic types of trees, plants and flowers. After your visit, stop for lunch at a local restaurant.
Approximate tour duration is 4 hours.

Unlike other types of massages, in Thailand your masseuse will stretch, bend, and contort your body into various positions, known to quickly ease the stress of muscle tension and aids in curing minor illnesses. A set of personal cotton clothing will be given to you to wear during the massage.
Approximate tour duration is 1 hour. Gratuity is not included.
|Day #10||01 Jul 2021 - 30 Jun 2024||$32.00|
|Know Before You Go|
|Although most of the planning and preparation is taken care of for you, there are still a few things you should know and some details you should take care of to ensure your comfort, safety and peace of mind. Please review the following information before your departure to ensure that any surprises along the way will only be pleasant ones.|
|Getting Ready to Go|
|Passports and Visas|
|It is each traveler's responsibility to have a passport valid for at least 6 months beyond the dates of travel and a visa if required. Please check the information at www.gate1travel.com/visas.aspx for the specific country/region you are visiting for more details. IMPORTANT: Passengers who are not U.S. citizens must check with the respective consulate or a visa agency to determine what personal identification is required. Passengers who enter, leave and then re-enter the same country on their itinerary should check if they require a double-entry visa. Passport applications are available at most U.S. Post Offices, as well as at regional Passport Agencies. Passengers requiring visas, whether obtained in advance or locally upon arrival, should ensure that their passport has blank pages.
|Traveling with Friends or Family?|
|If you are traveling with friends or family who are booked on another reservation, please make sure that we are aware. On occasion, we may operate more than one vehicle on your tour departure in which case we will ensure that guests will be assigned together. This is achieved by connecting your reservations before your departure. Once you arrive in your destination, it may not be possible to make assignment changes. To check that your reservations are linked, log into https://www.gate1travel.com/res with your email and password, select your reservation number, and check to see that your reservations are indicated as "Traveling With" at the top right side of the display. |
|A little pre-planning can make your trip go a lot smoother. Several weeks before your trip, make a list of what you will need to take with you. Make sure your personal documents (passports, visas, driver's license) are in order. Make sure also that you have enough prescription medications to last through the trip and carry them with you in case your luggage is delayed. Bring a change of clothes in your carry-on bag in the event that your luggage is delayed or lost. Lost luggage is common. We strongly urge you to consider carry-ons instead of checked bags when possible, and when checking a bag is necessary, choose a bag color and identification that stands out. We suggest that you make photocopies of passports, visas, personal ID and any other important travel documents and pack them separately from the originals. You may also make a digital copy of your passport to keep a clear picture with the important details in your cell phone or digital camera photos. If you lose the originals while traveling, you'll have copies for easier reporting and replacement. Pack a list of medications including dosage and generic names. You may consider bringing a small supply of over the counter medications for headaches and/or anti-diarrhea pills (especially when traveling outside of the USA and Western Europe). We recommend that you pack a portable alarm clock. Due to security reasons, many museums have restrictions on the size of bags that can be taken inside and backpacks, carry-on bags or large purses may not be permitted. It is recommended to bring a small shoulder bag or purse to use in these situations instead. Avoid placing valuables such as cameras in your checked luggage. Airplane pressure can cause similar pressure in your body, most notably in ears, as well as liquid tubes and bottles. Your physician can suggest medication for decongestion. We suggest that you place liquid containers into Ziploc bags to catch any leaks. |
|Travel Safety Advice: The safety of our guests is Gate 1’s #1 concern. Before making the decision to reserve your vacation, we want you to be aware of potential situations which may impact your holiday. While most of the time our programs run precisely according to plans, on rare occasion force majeure events including weather, transportation mechanical issues, or uninhabitable accommodation, civil unrest and even criminal or terrorist activities will present themselves unexpectedly and with little or no notice. Gate 1 will make the decision to cancel a tour only after receiving verifiable government issued information. We are otherwise obliged to comply with contractual airline and vendor agreements and carry out the tour until or unless we are advised otherwise. In the event of such an occurrence anytime after your date of departure, Gate 1 and the local destination ground staff, in coordination with government advisories, airlines, hotels, cruise ships and other vendors, will make decisions with regard to your safety first. We strongly recommend that tour participants review the destination country's specific information at https://travel.state.gov/content/passports/en/alertswarnings.html. |
|Even the best-planned trips can be impacted by the unexpected. And that is why we recommend that you help protect yourself and your investment by purchasing Travel Protection for your Gate 1 trip. Travel Protection can help with medical coverage for illness or injury, trip cancellation and/or interruption, baggage loss, medical evacuation, and more. At any time before you complete Final Payment, you may choose to purchase Travel Protection. The protection plan premium is non-refundable after a 10-day review period. In addition, you must be medically able to travel at the time the premium is paid. For a summary of the plan details on coverages, benefits, limitations and exclusions, please refer to the Description of Coverage by visiting www.gate1travel.com/insurance/. |
Cancel for Any Reason Waiver Benefit (CFAR) is a non-insurance feature that allows you to cancel up to 72 hours before your scheduled departure for any reason not otherwise covered in the Travel Protection Plan. CFAR must be purchased at the same time as the Travel Protection Plan as well as within 21 days of the original booking date. Independent or escorted tour reservations will be eligible for a future travel credit equal to the full cost of your trip, less the cost of initial deposit, airline-assessed fees, amendment fees, and insurance premium. Sea or river cruise reservations will be eligible for a future travel credit equal to 50% of the cost of your trip, less the cost of initial trip deposit, airline-assessed fees, amendment fees, and insurance premium. All CFAR credits are valid for a period of two years from the original date of travel. CFAR Credits have no cash value and are not transferrable. Airline-assessed fees are generally $300 per person, but may be as much as fully non-refundable. Some non-refundable airline tickets may retain value, less airline-assessed fees. Your future air credit must be used to book with the same airline. Deadlines to rebook and complete travel vary by airline and may be as early as 12 months from when the tickets were originally issued (not the date of travel). For details, www.gate1travel.com/insurance/.
This program does not apply to custom groups and Antarctica cruises. Residents of New York, Missouri & Minnesota may purchase this Cancel for Any Reason Waiver Benefit separate from Travel Protection. Call to speak with a reservation agent for details. This Cancel for any Reason Wavier Benefit is not insurance and is provided by Gate 1 Travel.
|Cell Phones & Calling Cards|
|You may wish to carry a cell phone while traveling. Check with your cell phone provider if your phone will work in the destination(s) you are visiting. If you can access the Internet as you travel, you can take advantage of email or a Skype Internet telephone (VOIP) account for the best value. Additionally, if your phone can connect to WiFi you may be able to make voice and video calls free of charge. Please contact your cell phone provider for further details. Alternatively, you may investigate renting a cell phone before you leave or buying an inexpensive phone locally. When calling the U.S. from a foreign country, you may also use a prepaid calling card; normally, the only additional charge (besides the prepaid long distance charges) is a local fee of a few cents and possibly a connection fee if you are using your card at your hotel. It is best to check with the hotel's reception desk prior to making phone calls to avoid unexpected charges. Please note that we are unable to provide compensation for phone calls regardless of reason. |
|Making Telephone Calls from One Country to Another|
|When dialing a number from one country to another, you should proceed as follows: dial your country's Exit Code (often indicated with a “+” sign), then the destination Country Code, then the Phone Number. For most countries, the exit code is 00. Exceptions include the USA and Canada (011), Hong Kong and Cambodia (001), Australia (0011), and Russia (8 Pause 10*). For Brazil, please consult with the local telephone company. If you are dialing from a mobile phone, you can enter a “+” instead of the international Exit Code (011, 001, 0011 or 00) by pressing and holding the 0 key. For most countries in Africa, Asia, Europe, South America and South Pacific, if you are calling from a local phone to a number within the same country, you should drop both the exit and country codes and then add a leading 0 (zero). Exceptions include Spain, Italy, Hungary and Malta (no additional zero needed to dial locally). |
To dial the following number in Germany (as listed on your voucher): +(49) 0555-555
From USA or your US cell phone: 011-49-555-555
From another country in Europe: 00-49-555-555
From a German phone within Germany: 0555-555
|WiFi access has improved. Free or inexpensive WiFi internet is accessible at coffee shops, airports, restaurants, libraries and on some trains and buses. WiFi access in hotels and cruise lines often involves a fee, determined by that property. Signal strength is subject to local conditions and not guaranteed. Availability on cruises is also dependent upon its location while sailing through multiple countries. Please note that WiFi can be extremely slow, unreliable and sometimes nonexistent in developing countries or, on moving conveyances such as buses and cruise ships. |
|Staying Healthy While Traveling|
|All travelers should familiarize themselves with local conditions, such as high altitude or required immunizations, which could affect their health. We recommend you consult with your personal healthcare provider, the Centers for Disease Control (www.cdc.gov) and/or the World Health Organization (http://www.who.int/en/) for their recommendations. |
There are several easy steps you can take to stay healthy while traveling which may help prevent contracting an illness while away from home.
|Notice on Aircraft Cabin Insecticide Treatment - Please note that some countries may require aircraft cabin insecticide treatment for in-bound foreign flights. A list of such countries is available at:
|Cambodia - No inoculations are required. However, some inoculations are recommended. Please consult your physician before traveling to Cambodia. |
|Consideration for Tour Participants (Escorted Tours)|
For the benefit of all tour participants, we ask tour members to be considerate of their fellow travelers in the following ways: |
|Climate & Clothing|
|Cambodia - Cambodia has three seasons. The dry season is from November to March. The hot season is from March to June. The wet season is from July to October. Comfortable walking shoes, clothes you can layer and an all-weather jacket are recommended. A hat and sunscreen lotion are especially recommended during the hot season. Some religious sites may require modest dress to enter: No shorts or short skirts, knees must be covered by long pants or a long skirt. No sleeveless tops, shoulders must be covered and a shawl or scarf is frequently not accepted as a cover. |
Cambodia Average Temperatures: https://www.gate1travel.com/weather/asia-pacific/default.aspx#southeast-asia-weather
|Thailand - The rainy season is June through October. Bring comfortable walking shoes, lightweight clothes you can layer and a waterproof windbreaker. Some religious sites may require modest dress to enter: No shorts or short skirts, knees must be covered by long pants or a long skirt. No sleeveless tops, shoulders must be covered and a shawl or scarf is frequently not accepted as a cover. |
Thailand Average Temperatures: https://www.gate1travel.com/weather/asia-pacific/default.aspx#thailand-weather
|Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV) or “drone” technology has quickly become affordable and is increasingly popular with recreational users. While some countries have clear, established drone laws, others do not, or existing regulations are undergoing review and change. Travelers who wish to bring a drone on their trip are responsible to research and abide by the laws and regulations of the countries they are visiting, as well as to check with their airline(s) regarding their rules for transporting drones. Please note that tours are unable to extend the length of scheduled visits and stops to accommodate use of drones. |
|Book & Film Recommendations|
|Many of our guests enjoy reading about their destination - either in advance of their trip or while traveling - as a way of adding context to their visit. Whether reading a traditional guide book, learning about the history and culture, or simply enjoying a fictional novel set in the destination, a good book can add greatly to your experience. Similarly, a good movie set in your destination helps set the mood before you travel. We asked our Tour Managers and staff to recommend books and films which past guests may have enjoyed. The following does not constitute an endorsement of any authors, books or films listed, it is merely a collection of guests' recommendations. |

|Preparing for Your Trip|
| As a courtesy service, complimentary airline seat assignments are requested on your behalf and, when available, are displayed in order of Passenger #1, #2 and so on. Assignments reflect the best available seats at the time of booking. Some airlines and/or fare types do not allow for pre-seating and require this be done at airport check-in only; in which case the display shows “N/A”. Seats are subject to change by your airline(s) including, for example, when there is a schedule change or equipment change after your initial booking; this may cause seat assignments to be changed or even cancelled. Some airlines offer preferred seating for an additional fee; these seats may only be purchased directly from the airline. You will need your family name and the 6-digit airline “Record Locator” which is displayed with the flight details on your reservation. In the event that you change seat assignments directly with your airline, changes will not be reflected on your invoice or documents. At the time that Gate 1 travel documents are issued, the currently assigned seats will be listed based on the assignments stored in your airline reservation at that time. Should you have questions regarding your assignments, please write to us at www.gate1travel.com/contactus. |
|Luggage & Packing|
|Checked bags are typically limited to a total dimension of 62 inches by adding length + width + height (example: 26"+26"+10" = 62”), and a maximum weight of 50 lbs (23kg). Smart Bags with a USB charging port, GPS tracking device and other high-tech features are prohibited as checked or carry-on baggage unless the bag is made with removable batteries and the batteries are removed and stored separately. Many airlines charge for checked bags including flights which begin and end within the USA. The most inexpensive airfare options commonly known as Basic Economy airfares do not include any checked bags nor seat assignments before the day of departure. However, for some airlines, other airfare categories also do not include checked baggage. This will be clearly displayed in our airfare selection and on your invoice. Where available, we highly recommend selecting airfares which include at least 1 piece of checked baggage. Gate 1 Travel is not responsible for checked bag fees, excess luggage or weight charges levied by an airline. Checked baggage allowances displayed on reservation details and invoices reflect the applicable allowance at the time of booking but are subject to change by your airline(s). For your airline’s requirements and fees, visit www.gate1travel.com/baggagefees.aspx. For important baggage information, visit www.gate1travel.com/luggage.aspx. Avoid placing valuables in your checked luggage. Federal law forbids the carriage of hazardous materials aboard the aircraft in your luggage, your carry-on or on your person. A violation can result in five years’ imprisonment and penalties of $250,000 or more (49 U.S.C. 5124). Hazardous materials include explosives, compressed gases, flammable liquids and solids, oxidizers, poisons, corrosives and radioactive materials. Examples: Paints, lighter fluid, fireworks, tear gases, oxygen bottles, and radio-pharmaceuticals. There are special exceptions for small quantities (up to 70 ounces total) of medicinal and toilet articles carried in your luggage and certain smoking materials carried on your person. Check the Transportation and Safety Administration (TSA) website www.tsa.gov to find out the current list of acceptable items you may bring on a plane before packing. We recommend that you use brightly colored luggage tags, straps or other identifiers to help you locate you luggage upon arrival or to describe it in the event that it is lost. |
|Thailand - Intra-Thailand flights have a weight restriction for luggage of 44 lbs. per piece of luggage with a limit of one piece of checked luggage per person. This differs from international flight luggage limits and should be taken into account when preparing for your trip. A lock is recommended for checked luggage while traveling within Thailand. |
|Cambodia - Intra-Cambodia flights have a weight restriction for luggage of 44 lbs. per piece of luggage with a limit of one piece of checked luggage per person. This differs from international flight luggage limits and should be taken into account when preparing for your trip. A lock is recommended for checked luggage while traveling within Cambodia. |
|Day of Departure|
|What to do if You Need Assistance|
Whether you purchased your airfare from Gate 1 Travel or from the airline directly, please bear in mind that Gate 1 Travel does not own nor operate the airline(s), nor the airport facilities where they operate. At times, flying can be a frustrating experience, especially when things do not go exactly as planned, and airline explanations can be confusing or even misleading. Should you face a problem, remain calm and seek assistance either from the airline directly or from Gate 1. Please be aware that in most cases, on the day of your flight(s), airlines pass responsibility for your reservation to their staff at the airport and it is not always possible for Gate 1 Travel to intervene on your behalf, either through our reservations system or directly with your airline.
|Arrival & Departure|
|Upon arrival, please complete immigration formalities if necessary and claim your luggage. If your program includes airport arrival transfers, check your voucher for specific instructions, as they vary with every destination. In most cases, you will be met after collecting your luggage or passing through Customs by the local representative who will be holding a Gate 1 Travel sign and/or a sign with your name on it. In some instances you will be instructed to walk a short distance to a transportation counter. The company's name and location will be printed on your voucher. If for any reason you do not connect with the Gate 1 transfer personnel, go to the Tourist Information Desk and ask them to page the Gate 1 Travel representative or phone the number on your voucher. If you are delayed due to lost luggage, phone the number on the voucher or have a companion exit the Customs Area to advise the transfer representative. |
|What To Do When Your Flight Is Delayed|
|Airlines do not share flight manifest information. Therefore, the only way we may learn of a delay or schedule change while you are traveling is from you, the traveler. The sooner you are able to contact one of our offices, the better we can respond. Please refer to the Emergency Assistance instructions on this same document. Gate 1 Travel is only able to guarantee pre-reserved arrival transfers for up to one hour from the scheduled time, no matter the cause. In case you are delayed for any reason, and are unable to follow the instructions on your voucher, please make independent transfer arrangements and retain your receipts. Unused tour services, including transfers and hotel nights are not refundable. Upon you return home you will need to contact your airline and/or insurance carrier to investigate the possibility of reimbursement for any unused tour services. |
|If your program includes departure transfers, instructions will be stated on your voucher or provided locally. |
|Due to local traffic and other extenuating circumstances, we ask that you allow 30 minutes from your scheduled transfer time for our representative to arrive. This includes hotel, airport and cruise transfers. Such possible delays are taken into consideration in scheduling transfers and you should therefore have no concerns about arriving late for your tour, flight or cruise. For transfers from a hotel, let the hotel reception desk or concierge know that you are waiting for a transfer. In the case of a missed transfer, reimbursement for your out-of-pocket expenses will be considered provided you obtain a written statement from the hotel's front desk verifying the length of time you waited, and the time you left the hotel, and a receipt for your transportation with time and date. |
The cost of a transfer is more expensive than hiring a taxi, as a Gate 1 transfer necessarily includes round trip service, or 'dead-leg'. Often the places of call (airports, seaports, hotels) demand entrance and parking fees, where drivers may have to wait for up to an hour. Passengers comfortable hiring a taxi on their own and do not require assistance will save money.
|About Your Escorted Tour Participants in Thailand|
| Please note that the number of participants may vary during your tour as some travelers may arrive and depart at different points in the itinerary. Some participants will begin their trip in Taipei, Taiwan before joining the tour in Bangkok, Thailand. Following Chiang Mai, Thailand some participants will end their journey in Bangkok, Thailand while others will continue to Phuket, Thailand or Angkor Wat, Cambodia before re-entering Bangkok, Thailand. Upon arrival in Bangkok, Thailand all tour participants will be invited to join a welcome orientation with your Tour Manager and you will meet all of your tour companions at that time. |
|About Your Accommodations|
|Gate 1 Travel has carefully selected each hotel based on overall quality, location, price, food, service, and cleanliness. All rooms are standard twin-bedded (two single beds) rooms with private facilities. Special requests such as bed types, smoking preference and connecting rooms are subject to availability. Room selection in all cases, unless otherwise reserved, is strictly at the discretion of the hotel's management on a run-of-house basis. Triple rooms consist of standard twin beds or one double bed plus a sofa/folding bed or cot for third person except in the U.S. and Canada, where triple rooms often consist of two double/queen beds for three persons; where available, a fee may be charged by the hotel for the addition of a cot/rollaway. The number of persons accommodated does not dictate the room size. Although available at most 4 and 5 star hotels, the use of air-conditioning abroad differs greatly from the United States, and is often shut down at night and from the end until the start of the summer months. Some lodges and accommodations in remote regions may not have all of the amenities, such as hairdryer, alarm clock and room service, that you might find in a larger hotel located in a city center. |
|Hotel Check-in/ Check-out|
|Hotel check-in time is generally not before 4:00 p.m. and check-out time is prior to noon. If you will be arriving early in the day or departing in the evening, hotels will usually allow you to store your luggage in their luggage room. Ask at the front desk if the hotel can check you in earlier, or let you stay later. |
|At Your Destination|
|Eco & Sustainable Tourism|
|We support global efforts to create a more eco-friendly world, intolerant of any forms of cruelty, abuse and intentional environmental destruction. To that end we ask that our clients maintain a watchful eye as they travel, and report any abuses they may encounter. One of the many benefits of tourism is the shared cultural knowledge and ultimate elimination of negative behavior through education. We rely on your good feedback to enable this element of symbiosis. As you travel and learn about foreign cultures, we ask first and foremost that you practice tolerance and respect for local customs. |
|Tipping is always a matter of personal discretion. For your convenience, please use the summary below as a guideline for recommended gratuity amounts. Gratuities may be paid in local currency or US dollar equivalent where accepted. Please be aware that tipping is considered by many locals to be a part of their normal remuneration and some may approach you for additional "compensation." There is no need to be intimidated by the request, nor should you feel pressured to pay more than recommended. If you become uncomfortable by any behavior you encounter, please advise your tour manager or phone our local office. Numbers are provided in your documents for your convenience. |
|Suggested Tipping: Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos & Malaysia|
Tour Manager (Coordinator; may or may not act as a guide): US $5 per person per day
Driver (Provides chauffeur services and limited assistance with luggage): US $2 per person per day, US $1 per half day
Local Guide (Offers in-depth information at specific locations. There may be one or many guides along a tour program): US $2 per person per day of sightseeing, US $1 per half day
Southeast Asia River Cruise: Crew $8 per person per day; Cruise Director $8 per person per day; Local Guides & Drivers $6 per person per day
Hotel porters and wait staff: Included
|Cambodia - Tipping is not customary in Cambodia, except in upmarket restaurants where 10% of the bill is appreciated - but only if a service charge has not already been added. |
|About Your Sightseeing|
|To ensure a pleasant and fair experience for passengers on our escorted tours, there is a mandatory seat rotation policy on our motor coaches which will be organized by your Tour Manager. Some buses are equipped with toilet facility, however they are strictly intended for emergency use only and often require the vehicle to stop for safety reasons before use. When travel dates coincide with religious holidays and national celebrations, some monuments and sites may be closed, sometimes without prior notice. On these occasions, escorted touring itineraries may be amended to reflect these closures. Occasionally, during holidays and certain periods, and/or due to other unforeseen circumstances including weather conditions, there may be last-minute changes, sometimes after arrival, which may affect the sequence of the tour and locations visited. National monuments and tourist sites regularly undergo renovations, which can obscure the monument's view. No tour will be canceled due to renovations, however Gate 1 will decide based on the conditions whether to amend an itinerary. To respect the privacy of all tour participants, your tour manager will not organize a group photo or collect passenger email addresses for a group list. |
|Land Only Passengers (Escorted Tours)|
|Your tour manager will contact you after your arrival at your hotel. Passengers who have not purchased arrival transfers from Gate 1 Travel should proceed directly to the hotel for check-in. The details of the hotel can be found in your documents. |
|Purchasing Tours Locally|

Credit cards can generally be used at hotels, but smaller business may not accept them or may charge a service fee for their use.

|Most people enjoy bringing home at least one souvenir from the countries they visit. However, some find any amount of shopping to be too much while others never find enough opportunities. |
We have built into our Escorted itineraries a few shopping stops at recommended spots. These stops are designed to enhance your experience by providing an opportunity to see first-hand quality locally crafted merchandise which you may not be able to find on your own. Shops are checked to ensure the quality and authenticity of the products they offer, and we limit guides from visiting other locations. In some cases, we plan these stops to provide an opportunity to use clean bathrooms and to stretch your legs. All shops want your satisfaction, and therefore in case of any misunderstanding they ask that you kindly submit your claim to us within one week of the item's receipt. Claims submitted later will be subject to each store’s policies.
While shopping independently, we advise you to exercise care and common sense when making any purchase. Always get a formal receipt. And remember that, just like in this country, if a deal seems too good to be true, it probably is!
About Tax-Free Shopping
Tax-Free Shopping allows shoppers to reclaim the VAT (Value-Added Tax) or GST (Goods and Services Tax) they have paid on their purchases in some foreign countries in accordance with restrictions and procedures as dictated by each country. Refund eligibility varies by country, but may require presenting a scanned copy of your passport at the time of purchase, a minimum amount spent, or providing original store receipts. For more details, check the respective country’s online website, with the shop salesperson, with your tour manager or at www.globalblue.com for specific country regulations and airport operation hours. Please keep in mind that you must apply for VAT refund in the airport of the country the items were purchased and allow enough time prior to your flight for the application.
U.S. Customs & Shipping Charges
You may carry items with a fair retail value totaling $800 into the U.S. Taxes may be applied to the next $1,000 worth of merchandise. U.S. Customs determines the value of your items, often honoring a genuine sales receipt. Items which are shipped home are always subject to duty when received in the U.S. (in addition to shipping charges). Some shops may offer to include shipping and duties in the price but this typically means shipping only to the customs facility closest to you and payment only of the export duties; you would still need to collect the item and pay U.S. import duties. Please be aware that it is illegal to import products made from endangered animal species. U.S. Customs & Border Protection will seize these items, as well as most furs, coral, tortoise shell, reptile skins, feathers, plants, and items made from animal skins.
|Cambodia - Local handicrafts, silks, and replicas of ancient statues and artifacts are among the most popular items. |
|Thailand - Among the most sought after goods are Thai silk and cotton embroidery, pearls, objects inlaid with precious and semi-precious stones, and leather wares. |
|Your Safety is Very Important|
Prior to your trip, if you are traveling overseas, we strongly recommend that you visit the website of the U.S. Department of State at www.travel.state.gov, specifically the section which addresses International Travel. You should read the tips for foreign travel and travel warnings for the country or countries that you plan to visit. |
It is also important that you do not allow your common sense to take a vacation while on your trip. Here are several tips which, if followed, will save much potential hardship:
If you've purchased an escorted tour program, your travel documents will include telephone numbers of local Gate 1 Travel representatives who will do their utmost to assist you in the event of an emergency. The numbers are printed on your Gate 1 Travel vouchers. Please copy the numbers. Once you relinquish the voucher, you will not have this information. Passengers traveling independently should employ the services of hotel concierges and local authorities.
|Tourist Street Scams|
Pickpockets and thieves can destroy an otherwise wonderful holiday. Be mindful of these precautions to help avoid being scammed or robbed: |
|Local Emergency Phone Numbers|
|Cambodia - Khmer is the local language. English is generally spoken in tourist areas. |
|Thailand - Thai is the local language. English is generally spoken in tourist areas. |
|Please note: The U.S. uses 120 volts and you can purchase a converter and transformer at most hardware stores for your 120V appliances. |
|Cambodia - The voltage used is 230 volts. |
|Thailand - The voltage used is 220 volts. |
|Code of Conduct|
|Cambodia - While men often shake hands in greeting, woman tend to use the more traditional Som Pas greeting, with palms pressed together at chest level followed by a slight bow. Simple, modest clothing is appropriate. Footwear should be removed upon entering a Buddhist temple. Statues of the Buddha are considered sacred and should not be touched. |
|Thailand - In Thailand, there is a very sharp distinction between what is appropriate in public life versus private life. Expressing anger or physical affection in public is a faux pas. The Royal Family is treated with utmost respect and reverence, so if you are handling any object bearing the image of the King, treat it with respect. Casual dress is generally appropriate. |
|Food and Meals|
|As specified in each itinerary. Meals are based on the hotel's or restaurant's buffet or set menu. In general, beverages are not included, unless specifically stated. Although Gate 1 cannot make guarantees, every effort will be made to honor special dietary requests submitted in writing at least 72 hours prior to departure at www.gate1travel.com/contactus. Terminology for dietary requests can vary from country to country and options may be limited. Therefore we recommend that you make your wishes known to your tour manager upon arrival, and at each hotel/restaurant. |
|Cambodia - While it is generally safe to eat fully cooked meats and vegetables, care should be taken to avoid undercooked meat and uncooked fruits and vegetables. Because tap water is not potable, visitors should only drink bottled water or water that has been boiled and filtered. Avoid ice, as it is usually made from tap water. |

Thanks Gate1 for a wonderful experience in Thailand. Congratulations on having a high quality guide like Lada, she was kind, respectful, went above and beyond to meet the expectations at the same time she was on time to every activity. She knew the history of Thailand and shared all the details with us. Our group was big ( 40 people) and she had to deal with some difficult customers. I am ready to go back to Thailand with Gate1 but we will request to be in one of Lada's group. This time instead of 4 people, my whole family of 8 is planning to go.Jose P.
My wife and I are fans of your packages, and I have never left feedback until now. However, I have been bragging about my trips and referring your company to friends and co-workers for years. We even took my in-laws on this trip, and cannot wait for our next adventure! Our latest trip to Thailand, has been the BEST vacation my wife and I have taken. The sights, the culture, and above ALL made this trip so memorable! I want to thank all your staff, but specially our tour guide (Lada), who went beyond her obligations for us by: constantly checking in on us ,providing all sorts of recommendations and making arrangements on our "leisure" days , going to pharmacies to find medication for us!! , paying out of pocket for us to try local treats!! , taking pictures for the group ,being a wealth of knowledge and source of security and comfort at ALL hours!! I cannot wait for our next adventure! People like her have made me appreciate guided tours even more (rather than looking at your "leisure" packages/deals). Again, thank you for everything you do!Metin N.
The trip was great, except too much rain. The tour manager Mr .Oh chose the dinner location with local family -excellent. The host in Bangkok showed us the teakwood house which was very impressive, the food was good as well. We are well attended by Mr. Oh. A job well done.Helen L.
It was great. We had a very nice tour guide who makes sure that we are taken cared of. She makes us laugh, dance, and sing for us. I never had a good trip as nice as this one. I met new friends and we are all happy on the tour. Thanks Gate 1. Hope to be on a tour with Gate 1 in the near future.Ruben B.
Our trip was awesome. The hotels were marvelous and UZA couldn’t do anything better. She is funny, kind and caring with all of us besides being extremely knowledgeable in the history and places in Thailand. She really went the extra mile. The driver was very courteous and accommodating and the bus everyday was sparking clean. He really took care of us with the water, wipes, sanitize even paper for the toilets. We had an amazing time, looking forward to the next one.Ramon T. Guaynabo, PR
The trip was great! Some resort hotels even exceeded our expectations! Ake is an excellent tour manager. He is very knowledgeable about the history and geography about Thailand. Plus he worked beyond the call of duty to taking care of us in order to make sure that we had a safe and pleasant trip. He treated us just like a part of his family members. Gate 1 is lucky to have a tour guide as he is. Keep doing a good job!Bonny L. Fountain Valley, CA
Our trip was amazing! Tick, our tour guide, was so knowledgeable about everything. The hotels were top-notch and the sights Gate 1 chose were perfect. We have a real "feel" for the country and culture! We already want to do another Gate 1 tour.Marcia S. Henderson, NV
It was a wonderful trip! The tour guide was amazing! She takes care of every detail to make sure we have a great experience. Ms. Boom knows a lot about Thailand and explains with details everything. We really enjoyed our time in Thailand!! The driver and helper were always ready to help us and the cold water before our visit to the temple is a sample of an excellent service. Many thanks Gate 1 for such a great experience. This is our first tour with your company and we will continue traveling with you guys…your service is spectacular!!Julia H. Plantation, FL
We had a great trip, had a great tour manager (Steven) ... We thoroughly enjoyed the entire country. Steven (tour manager) did an amazing job organizing all those trips. He was like a father to 31 kids, making sure we were comfortable and more importantly didn’t get lost ... We have already recommended Gate 1 to our relatives and friends and definitely will toured with Gate 1 again.Sherry R. Ontario, Canada
Our trip was great! We had so much fun visiting Thailand and its people. The food, the sights and the prices were incredible. We enjoyed Bangkok, Chiang Mai and Phuket. Oh was an excellent tour guide. Everything was very well organized. We will definitely recommend Gate 1 to our friends and family and we will continue being loyal customers for sure!Mariah F. Blaine, WA
Very good! Nice hotels, great guide, interesting temples. Especially loved the visit to a local school, and was very glad to hear that Gate 1 provides financial support for the students!Michael B. Morro Bay, CA
The trip was amazing, so many colorful temples and tasty foods. Every hotel was great. Loved immersing ourselves in the different culture. Our tour manager , OH, was wonderful, he was very informative , funny , kept an eye on everyone at all times, helpful with info for our alone times. As with my other Gate 1 trips, I am 100% satisfied and will continue to travel with you.Yvette F. Sebring, FL
Our Gate 1 trip in Thailand was very nice. The hotels were great. We really enjoyed our two nights in the hut in the jungle. Please keep that in the itinerary. For many, that was one of the favorite things. Our guide, Yo, did an excellent job of leading us. She was very informed on everything and we especially enjoyed all the little Thai treats she bought for us to try. We are looking forward to planning another gate 1 trip in the near future, hopefully with some friends.Nancy and Tim B. Glen Ellyn, IL
Fantastic. Uza is a great tour guide and very helpful. She even worked with the airline to get our bags checked all the way to Hong Kong, our next stop after the tour. The bus was clean and comfortable. The driver and the helper are very professional. The hotels are very nice. I am looking forward to my next tour in August to Germany.Marian E. Danville, CA
It was a great trip. My Wife MaryAnn had a wonderful time in Thailand. Her most memorable experience was boat ride to the floating market, walking the memorial on the River Kwaii. She loved the jungle hotel that you could only take a boat to get too.. The tour guide was very healthful. The whole trip was such a wonderful experience. We both really love traveling with Gate 1.Don & Maryann A. Walnut Creek, CA
The trip was great! We had a very good time. The tour guide Kit was very good. Also the driver and the bus assistant Kit gave us so much information about the history of Thailand and the people. She went a milestone over. We will recommend Gate One travel to all of our friends!Leah K. Great Neck, NY
It was fabulous. Kit was an excellent tour guide. She was very professional and congenial. We enjoyed all the tours of the temples and the hotels were fabulous. The show and food was great. My first time using Gate 1 and we will definitely be using your services again. I told all my family and friends about Gate 1 and they are looking into using your services. Everyone on the tour have used your services multiple times and they all had wonderful experiences. I'm so glad we took this trip with Gate 1 and I'm looking forward to booking our trip to Dubai in a couple of months. Thank you again Gate 1 for providing exceptional service.Allison B. Jamaica, NY
Everything was perfect, no kidding. Our guide, Ray, was wonderful. The hotels and meals were top notch. The itinerary was varied and interesting. Every detail went smoothly. We had a great time. We’ll be recommending Gate 1 and this tour to others.Victoria X. Binghamton, NY
The trip to Thailand, Laos, and Cambodia with the opportunity to visit a border town in Myamar was excellent. The Tour Manager, POK, was the best of the 9 tours I have taken with GATE 1 over the years. He was knowledgeable, funny, and treated everyone individually which was a challenging task since our group consisted of 34 people. The temples of Cambodia, Angor Wat, etc. were beyond my expectations. The White Temple in Thailand was unique and a special treat to see. The use of Le Meridian properties on the trip was an excellent choice. An unforgettable, enjoyable experience.Wes W. Stephenson, VA
It was fabulous! Gate 1 always does top notch trips!! Everything was first class...tour guides, hotels, food, buses and driver's, and all the beautiful sites!Teresa H. San Diego, CA
It was marvelous! Udom, our guide, made the trip. He was considerate, efficient, and informative. Without his knowledge and experience, we wouldn’t have gotten nearly as much from the tour. We learned about the history and culture of Thailand and of Buddhism, and he told personal stories that brought the facts and places to life. I especially enjoyed the school visit, and we both really appreciated the visit to the farms ... We must mention our extremely skilled drivers who handled large vehicles with calm and care. We’re in awe! Thanks to all who put these trips together and especially to Udom.Janyce E. Loves Park, IL
My trip was amazing. The tours arranged for the group were great. Our tour manager Nok provided us with so much information and the organization of everything went well. I enjoyed the sights of Thailand and I can't wait to return again. All the hotels were beautiful.Messina W. Middletown, NY
My trip to Thailand was WONDERFUL! Our tour guide was the best! Knowledgeable, fun and happy, and willing to show us everything we wanted to see and more! She went above and beyond her job making sure our trip was perfect! She made sure each one of our group members was taken care of! We could not have had a better tour guide than Busabong!Catherine B. East China, MI
Our trip was great. Our guide - Oh- was very efficient and knowledgeable. Very patient as well. He made sure we had water and bathroom breaks; he said good bye to each of us and saw us off when we left Bangkok. He gets an A+ for his effort and efficiency. Job well done.Flora W. Modesto, CA
Our trip was fabulous! We have been taking international trips for the past 10 year (some with Gate 1) and this trip was excellent. Vit, our tour guide was so friendly, and knowledgeable. The pace of the trip was appropriate. We saw many aspects of Thailand but did not feel rushed. All the accommodations were excellent ... The bus was clean and comfortable. We had no negative incident of any nature. Just an overall great trip that we would recommend to friends and family ... Looking forward to traveling with Gate 1 in the future.Tom C. Elk Grove, CA
The trip was amazing, very successful and highly enjoyable. I specially want to share my appreciation for Steven, our tour manager and guide. His broad knowledge, friendliness and professionalism had significant contribution to the success of the trip. Our overall experience was extremely positive.Jacob L. Agoura Hills, CA
Everything was wonderful, we had a great time, everyone in our group was great. Peter was an excellent tour guide and was very personable , knowledgeable and most of all very professional. All of the hotels were great, as was the bus. Hope to tour again in the future with Gate 1.Zahira R. Kissimmee, FL
Thailand is an amazing country! Our Gate 1 tour guide, Pong, was very knowledgeable and informative. We visited many temples and landmarks. One nice thing is that I didn't realize we were staying at a beautiful resort called Mida in Kanchanaburi. And, unbelievably, we had only one day of rain when we went to see the floating market. The weather really cooperated. We visited a school en route to Bangkok and found out that Gate 1 supports a lot of local schools throughout the world. My friend and I also went to see the Siam Niramit Show & Dinner. It was just fantastic. The cost was reasonable and I enjoyed it thoroughly. Thank you, Gate 1, for a wonderful tour experience.Josie M. Albuquerque, NM
Both trips were excellent. Our guide in India and Thailand were superb. I have no complaints about either trips. The itinerary was good, the hotels were excellent, the bus was clean, the driver kept us safe and the bus boy was really good. During the trip, we were looked after really well. We will definitely be booking with your company again.Mary M. Red Deer, Canada
My trip was simply amazing and perfection. First, my travel itinerary was perfect .... I was in a small group of 15 people and I really enjoyed my tour guide, Uza. Uza is a class act. She was very knowledgeable about Thailand, she was very relatable, caring, nurturing, and she knew the tours inside and out. Furthermore, she was able to recommend the best optional tours for my desires. Second, My driver was also phenomenal and really attentive and nice. Third, I enjoyed the host home dinner, that was really an honor and blessing to be greeted and treated so warm and kind. Fourth, I loved every hotel that we stayed in and the customer service was exceptional. Fifth, The trip flowed and we were where we needed to be in a timely fashion. Absolutely a wonderful trip and I would highly recommend gate 1 to anyone!!Clynnetta N. Beltsville, MD
Well done. Our expectations were exceeded throughout the trip. Great hotels and a very knowledgeable, helpful, friendly, guide. He made the trip very interesting and comfortable and went above and beyond in arranging activities and giving us inside information on how, where to go, what to do, etc. We will definitely consider Gate 1 for future travel.Mark H. Colorado Springs, CO
It was wonderful. Thailand was amazing and our local Gate 1 representative was kind and helpful. This was a self-guided tour and we had an amazing time ... Our hotel was fantastic and in a really good location and the morning breakfast buffet included was excellent. I will definitely recommend Gate 1 to my friends and family.Laurie N. Phoenix, AZ
