Welcome to Bangkok!Welcome to Bangkok - You will be warmly welcomed at the airport by our guide who will escort you to your transfer vehicle to go to your hotel.
The quintessential eastern metropolis and Southeast Asia’s most vibrant capital city. 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 spectacular in the sunlight, and a snaking river that audaciously winds its way through the heart of the city. Fabulous shopping awaits you, whether you’re after high-quality artisanal handicrafts or excellent bargains in Asia’s most stylish shopping centers. If you’re a food lover, you will delight in the exceptionally delicious meals that can be enjoyed in every corner of the city.
Bangkok - trip to Wat Phra Kaew and the Grand PalaceMeet your guide at the lobby in the morning and you will take a trip to Wat Phra Kaew and the Grand Palace which are situated in the same compound. While Wat Phra Kaew is the most important temple for Thais, hosting the revered image of the Emerald Buddha; The Grand Palace is an emblematic example of the combination between traditional Thai architectural style and Western style. Then, moving on you will come to see What Pho which is home to more than one thousand Buddha images, as well as the breath-taking perfection of the Reclining Buddha. Wat Pho is also renowned for being the first massage school in Thailand. This journey will transport you into the marvelous world of contrasts in Bangkok – the sleepless, hectic city with skyscrapers and modern shopping malls from which you still can find shelter as soon as you enter the temples: islands of peace drenched in spirituality.
After that, you will take a long tail boat and cruise along the canal of Thonburi and get a glimpse of the everyday life of the famous ‘water people’ of Thailand. On your way back, you will stop by what is probably the best known symbol of Bangkok, the Temple of Dawn (Wat Arun), with its sparkling spires covered in broken shards of glass and pottery.
Tonight, you will experience the real Bangkok lifestyle with "Chinatown tuk tuk food tour and night stroll." You will hop on a tuk-tuk and start a twilight tasting adventure into bustling Chinatown. Your driver will let you go for a walk on Yaowarat Road and see its countless and colorful Chinese neon signs. Along with lively street food stalls or old shops and hidden family stalls, you will have the opportunity to make new culinary discoveries. Between the smells of spices and dishes simmered in sometimes improvised furnaces, images of burning and flaming stoves, you will be absorbed by the spectacle of these artists of street food, with expert hands shaped by tradition and family know-how. This is a great opportunity to discover simple but unique dishes that are popular with locals. Queue up with hungry foodies and discover some recipes that each have their little stories and anecdotes, and maybe learn how to pronounce their name in Thai.
Continue your evening on your tuk-tuk towards Pak Klong Talad, the swarming flower market. Here, when the heat of the day has subsided, the florists, porters, merchants, sellers of betels or other offerings, work to deliver their goods on time for the next day. You will quietly leave this unique and colorful atmosphere for the silence and serenity of a temple and its illuminated stupas at night. A final destination during which you will find some tranquility after the hustle and bustle, before returning to your hotel. You will enjoy the street food dinner which is included.
Bangkok - Ayuttuhaya - BangkokStart the day by visiting the Ayutthaya’s glorious Wats. Around 50 miles north of Bangkok, proudly stands Ayutthaya, the former capital of Thailand. On your way from Bangkok, you will visit the Summer Palace, commonly known as Bang Pa-In, an impressive architectural blend of East and West dating back to the 17th century. You will then explore the glorious ruins of Ayutthaya, which bring back to life the early splendor of the city destroyed by the Burmese army in 1767. During your visit you will stroll around the most impressive remains of this UNESCO World Heritage Site: Wat Phra Si Sanphet, a royal temple during Ayutthaya's glory days, and Wat Mahathat, where embedded in the roots of a tree, hides the head of Buddha.
Now it's time for Rice Barge Cruise in Ayutthaya. You will step on board this converted traditional teak rice barge to drift slowly along the majestic "River of Kings" and her tributaries and explore the Island City of Ayutthaya, enjoying en route a beautiful selection of Thai food. The romantic atmosphere of the old capital and timeless daily activities of the locals along the banks of the river make this cruise a peaceful alternative to regular visits.
In the afternoon, you will travel back to Bangkok.
Bangkok - Flight to Chiang MaiA leisurely paddle boat ride along the canal in Tha Kha
Imagine a trip in a paddleboat drifting along a canal in a quiet ambiance as you witness smiles from the locals who sell food on boats during the daytime. Stepping off the boat you will be welcomed to enter a garden. Here you will try your hand at doing basketry with the locals and you may be surprised to see how coconut leaves can be transformed into tiny toys. You will also see how sugar palm from raw coconuts is made. Then, follow the locals to cook some Thai sweets that are colored with natural ingredients and made using traditional utensils. During the weekend, at Tha Kha, you might also see a lively floating market filled with fruit and vegetable vendors gathering in the canal spot. It is less crowded than other floating markets of the province; so that you will have more time to discover the livelihoods of habitats.
After lunch, you will travel to Bangkok airport for your domestic flight to Chiang Mai.
Welcome to Chiang Mai - An ancient walled city of leafy green trees, winding alleyways, gentle inhabitants and spectacular cuisine, Chiang Mai can make a good case for being the most charming city in Thailand. Northern Thailand’s most important cultural hub offers a huge variety of antique temples from colorful structures that sparkle in the sunlight to more understated beauties that exhibit the earthy tones of brick and wood. The surrounding countryside is nothing short of spectacular- Chiang Mai is also the gateway into the northern mountains for invigorating treks, enigmatic elephants and culturally intriguing minority villages.
Upon arrival at Chiang Mai airport, you will meet your driver and local guide and travel by car to your hotel.
Chiang Mai - Exquisite temples and Warorot market by trishawToday Chiang Mai will delight you during a characteristic trip by trishaw, a non-motorized three-wheeler that relies on the strong legs of the driver. Do not worry! You won’t have to drive it on your own unless you really want to! Explore the gleaming temple compound of Wat Prah Singh with its towering chedi and golden rooftops, the exquisite Wat Phan Tao, and the elegant Wat Prasat, before ending up at the crumbling Chedi Luang. After that, you will travel by mini-van to visit the bustling and vibrant Warorot Market, one of the largest in town.
Inspirational retreat at Doi Suthep until sunset
In the afternoon, you will take a ride up the centuries-old Doi Suthep, one of the highest hills and within easy reach of Chiang Mai. Doi Suthep is also one of the city’s most spiritually noteworthy temples. Experience a unique private blessing and witness the monks’ chanting: an awe-inspiring and exotic experience that offers plentiful food for thought. Feeling suspended in a balance between earth and sky, admire the setting sun as the sky bursts into color.
Chiang Mai - Visit to farmhouse located in an organic farmHead out to a beautiful farmhouse located in an organic farm on the outskirts of Chiang Mai. Here you will meet the hosts, a friendly couple, with whom you will spend time exploring the farm and learning about their lives.
