Luxury Thailand

Your Itinerary

Day 1 - Sawasdee Ka to Bangkok!

You will be met at Bangkok Suvarnabhumi Airport by your private chauffeur and be driven to The Siam Hotel, our favourite luxury hotel in Bangkok and an artwork in itself. We have nothing planned for you today so you can become accustomed to your new surroundings and enjoy a dip in the pool. (The Siam, Siam Suite)

Day 2 - Bangkok’s highlights done right

This morning you will be picked up by your private guide to go on a special walking tour to explore the hidden side of Bangkok. From the Giant Swing via the prison park we wander through small alleys, encounter guardian spirit signs, fresh markets and more. After, we visit the famous Grand Palace Complex including the Temple of The Emerald Buddha and Wat Pho – the must-see sights for every visitor to Bangkok.

Day 3 - Bangkok by boats

This morning, board a long tail boat to explore Bangkok’s maze of canals or Klongs. We then continue by long tail boat to the magnificent Wat Arun also known as the Temple of Dawn. Enjoy the afternoon at leisure before you will be picked up for a unique dinner experience on a Tahsaneeya rice barge for an unforgettable dinner cruise on the Chao Phraya, the “River of the Kings”.

Day 4 - Welcome to the Golden Triangle

This morning, we will fly you to Chiang Rai. Upon arrival, your private guide will accompany you to the fabulous Anantara Golden Triangle Resort in Chiang Saen. Along the way, visit the spectacular Wat Rong Khun Temple, also known as White Temple – a surreal work of art in an unconventional setting. (Anantara Golden Triangle Elephant Camp & Resort, Deluxe Three Country View room)

Day 5 - From Chiang Saen to Chiang Mai

This morning will be free to relax and enjoy the resort’s fabulous amenities (included are a 90-minutes spa treatment, an Elephant Camp experience, a cooking class or a Golden Triangle Discovery Excursion). After lunch at the resort, you will be picked up and driven to Chiang Mai where you will check into Chiang Mai’s luxurious boutique hotel, Rachamankha. (Rachamankha, Superior Room)

Day 6 - Chiang Mai’s Monks and Markets

Rise early today in order to try local delicacies at Chiang Mai Gate Market, a traditional fresh-foods market. You will also see the monks making their alms rounds – a fascinating and humbling experience. Continue to explore different temples by rickshaw, a truly local experience.

Day 7 - Traditional Cooking Class

This morning you will be driven to a local Lanna village where you will be visiting your host family. This is not your average cooking class as you will learn more about their culture, way of living and the architecture of a traditional Thai house. You will cook traditional home cooked recipes with authentic Northern Thai flavours. Select fresh ingredients from the garden to add to today’s cooking extravaganza.

Day 8 - A day among elephants

This morning, you will be picked up early for a full day program at the Patara Elephant Camp – a unique and private hands on experience. At the camp you will be briefed on the history of the  elephant in Thailand. Hike into the jungle to find the elephants in the bush and learn how to approach  an elephant and how to feed and bathe the giant creatures.

Day 9 - From Chiang Mai to Khao Lak

After breakfast, we will fly you to Phuket, from where you will be privately transferred to Khao Lak. You will be accommodated at The Sarojin. Set on 11 acres of tropical gardens along a perfect beach, it is one of our favourite beach hideaways in Thailand. (The Sarojin, Garden Residence)

Day 10 & Day 11 - Indulge in luxury in Khao Lak

We haven’t planned anything for you these days, so you have ample time to fully enjoy all the fantastic amenities of The Sarojin. Soul soothing will be guaranteed.

Day 12 - Bon Voyage!

Check out time is at noon. You will be transferred by private vehicle to Phuket Airport for your flight back to Bangkok from where you can catch your international flight. Safe travels.

Bangkok
Bangkok’s bustling capital began as a small trading centre at Chao Phraya River 200 years ago. Today, the city is well known for its great shopping possibilities, diverse nightlife and endless dining options. But, visitors can still find hints of its illustrious past and dazzling temples, glamorous palaces, and colourful markets.
Ayutthaya
The Ayutthaya Historical Park is a UNESCO World Heritage Site just a 2-hour drive from Bangkok. More
Chiang Mai
During a visit to Thailand’s picturesque North, you will discover Thailand’s spiritual side. Life is a lot slower and more traditional here. We love the green hills and serene landscape of Chiang Mai, its rich heritage, the countless trekking possibilities and the possibilities to see wildlife up close. More
Chiang Rai and the Golden Triangle
A three-hours drive from Chiang Mai leads to Chiang Rai and the legendary Golden Triangle, where the mighty Mekong and Ruak rivers meet and where Thailand borders Laos and Myanmar. This mystical area with its scenic charme is dotted with remote villages populated by the Hmong, Shan, Yao, Karen, Lahu and Lisu ethnic groups. Here, guests will find an abundance of possibilities to get in touch with local communities. More
Koh Kood (aka. Koh Kut)
Ko Kood (also known as Koh Kut) in the Gulf of Thailand is the country’s fourth largest island. However, it is only little developed and still relatively untouched. We love this island not only because of its tropical rainforests, breathtaking waterfalls and empty white beaches, but also because of the fantastic hotel options we have found here. More
Koh Samui
Ko Samui is one of the most visited islands in Thailand, and with good reason: The country’s third largest island is in our opinion one of the best places for an active beach holiday in Thailand. Although busy in parts, it is still possible to find real solitude if you know where to look. More
Sukhothai
The UNESCO World Heritage site Sukhothai was the capital of the Thai Empire for approximately 140 years. As of 2014, 193 temples have been excavated and partly reconstructed.

Koh Phangan
Despite its reputation as a party place, most visitors coming to Koh Phangan are not interested in Hat Rin’s party scene but looking for beautiful beaches, turquoise waters and strolls through the national park with its diverse flora and fauna. We love this hippie-at-heart island and have found beautiful boutique hotels and luxurious resorts for you. More
Khao Sok National Park
Get close to nature at the Khao Sok National Park – one of the oldest evergreen rainforests in the world. Conveniently situated on the mainland between Phuket, Krabi, Khao Lak and Koh Samui, a stop at this nature reserve can easily be combined with a trip to one of Thailand’s amazing beaches. Visitors will find rare flora & fauna, huge limestone mountains, deep valleys, breathtaking lakes, exciting caves and wild animals.

More
Hua Hin
Hua Hin, situated only some 160 km from the bustling metropolis of Bangkok, is a delightful mix of city and sea with long beaches, colourful markets and a great infrastructure. If you are looking for a palm-fringed hideaway, Hua Hin is probably not the place for you. But, this friendly beach town is a great spot if you are looking for some fun beach days and you don’t have the time (and money) to go all the way down South to the islands. More
Phuket
Despite its reputation as party headquarter, Phuket has some gorgeous corners and fantastic beaches on offer. In fact, we found some of Thailand’s most innovative hotels and luxury resorts on this island.

More
Khao Lak
Khao Lak is located an hour’s drive north of Phuket on the Andaman Coast. In contrast to Phuket the area is peaceful with a backdrop of jungle covered mountains and kilometre long beaches. More
Koh Lipe
With its sandy white beach and turquoise waters, Koh Lipe might be the island paradise you have been looking for. It takes a little longer to get there but the ferry ride is oh so worth it: Gorgeous salt-white sand crescents, jungled hills, fabulous dive sites and lovely bars with a hippie vibe. This island is one of our favourites. More
Krabi
With its own airport Krabi is now easily accessible from Bangkok and thus no longer just the haunt of intrepid backpackers. The main beach resort Ao Nang is a little developed for our tastes, but hidden in a small peninsula nearby sits Railay Beach. Accessible only by boat due to high limestone cliffs which cut off the mainland, Railay attracts rock climbers from around the world, but is just as popular for its beautiful beach. Our favourite beach in Krabi is the Tup Kaek Beach with its quiet surroundings, stunning sunsets and fabulous hotel options. More
Kanchanaburi
Kanchanaburi is a couple of hours North West of Bangkok. It is best known for its part in the Second World War when thousands of allied POWs and Asian workers lost their lives during forced construction of the Thai-Burma Railways. Kanchanaburi is a fascinating and moving place, but it is also great for hiking, bamboo rafting and home to a number of tribes. More
Pai
Pai is a peaceful town of laidback charm and simple character. Visitors will find unspoilt forest, thundering waterfalls, huge limestone caves and traditional mountain villages.
Isaan
Isaan is located in the northeastern region of Thailand, close to the borders to Cambodia and Laos. If you want to learn more about Thai traditions and the daily way of life in a beautiful rural area, this is the right place for you. More
