Intrepid Photographic Experience in Thailand

Intrepid Photographic Experience in Thailand

Following the sell-out success of Intrepid's Photographic Experience in India with Steve Davey, Intrepid Travel is thrilled to announce Thailand Through The Lens, a very special Photographic Experience that explores northern Thailand with experienced travel photographer Steve Davey.

Author of the BBC Book 'Unforgettable Places to See Before You Die', Steve Davey will provide Intrepid travellers with expert knowledge, assistance and insight into the art of travel photography, as they experience the ancient kingdom of Siam through the lens of their cameras.

For budding photographers, the highlight of this photographic adventure is sure to be the 'Buddhist Elephant Ordination Celebration' in Sukhothai. This lively procession features beautifully decorated elephants, carrying young Bhuddist novices in colourful costumes to worship at Wat Hat Siao.

Other highlights include:
Cruise the city 'khlongs' photographing life by the canals in Bangkok
Encounter endangered Asian elephants at the Elephant Conservation Centre
Discover some of the secrets of Thai cuisine
Gain an insight into history in Kanchanaburi
Thailand Through The Lens is designed in the Intrepid Comfort style of travel to ensure a real life experience with a softer landing, where all your energies can be poured into your photos. Whether photography is your future or you simply like to get the most out of your travelling imagery, then this may be the trip for you.
