Known in Thai as the city of angels, Bangkok is a city of mind-boggling history and spirituality, where you can expect ancient Thai temples that rise magnificently from the riverbanks, colorful palaces that glisten spectacularly in the sunlight, and a snaking river that audaciously wind its way through the heart of the city.

    Bangkok - Family discovery

    For the afternoon, have the opportunity to discover the City of Angels with your family. Your private longtail boat will take you through peaceful Khlongs until you arrive at the charming 200-year-old traditional artist's house of Baan Silapin. Here you and your kids will be able to test your painting skills and creativity while decorating ‘papier-mâché’ masks for puppets which are usually used by artists during traditional puppet shows.

    Back in the old quarter of Bangkok, during a short stroll through the colorful flower market of Pak Klong Talad, you will realize the importance of flowers and their different uses and symbols in the lives of Thai people. Let your kids challenge you with the art of folding flowers, a skill that all Thai people are initiated in from an early age! Then jump into a tuk-tuk and head to Wat Saket, better known as the Golden Mountain from where you can admire a panoramic view of the royal district and the 'skyline' of Bangkok which reveals a contrast of glittering temples and modern skyscrapers. A few meters away, you will mingle with locals who gather in the late afternoon for dinner. Steaming stoves, artists of Thai cuisine, intriguing aromas wafting down the street, your afternoon will end with these cooks preparing some of the best local specialties for you.

    Khum Lanna - A relaxing day on the water surrounded by nature

    After breakfast, you will leave Chiang Mai and head out to the lush green countryside located north of the city. Hidden among the densely wooded hills you will find the Bua Tong Waterfalls, also known by their nickname “Sticky Waterfalls”. These waterfalls are famous because you can actually climb up them. This is possible thanks to a mineral deposit which gives them a very good grip, hence the name Sticky Waterfalls. You can spend some time walking and enjoying the green surroundings, and of course, have a go at climbing the waterfalls. While the place is very popular with Thai families at the weekend, it remains relatively unknown among tourists.

    After some fun at the waterfalls, you will continue to the Mae Ngad Dam where a longtail boat will take you to one of the floating bungalows in the middle of the beautiful lake. Amidst these tranquil surroundings, you will taste some delicious local dishes for lunch. In the afternoon, you can relax, swim, or paddle around with a kayak before carrying on your adventure in the northern countryside to a traditional lodge.

    Khum Lana Thai country living

    On arrival, you will be introduced to Khum Lanna's concept of 'Rice for Life' before collecting some vegetables from the garden and then taking part in a Thai cooking class. To better interact with your hosts, you will be given a short Thai language introduction before enjoying dinner.

    Koh Samui - Participate in snorkeling day in Koh Tan by longtail boat.

    If you want to escape the bustle of Samui’s beaches, there’s a special place made just for you: the little islet of Koh Tan. Located approximately 10 miles off Samui’s coast, Koh Tan, or Coral Island, is a rustic, quiet fishing island where time seems to have stood still for decades. Surrounded by coral reefs and sandy beaches, the island currently has around 20 to 30 inhabitants, as opposed to the 500 inhabitants it had in the 1960s before they left for better living conditions and wages in Samui.

    In the morning, you’ll head south to the peaceful village of Thong Krut to board a longtail boat to Koh Tan for an exciting day’s snorkeling among colorful fish and corals. You’ll have lunch at a local beach restaurant and enjoy the charm of the island’s unique atmosphere.

    You’ll then cruise off to another snorkeling spot to enjoy some more swimming or sunbathing.

    In the early afternoon, the boat heads slowly back to Thong Krut and then Samui, where your driver will pick you up and take you back to your hotel.
