Bangkok – Atmospheric Markets
Bangkok beguiles visitors and is far more fascinating than its initial impression may suggest. Upon your arrival, you will be greeted at the airport and transferred to a five-star hotel. Early check-in will be arranged, so you can spend the day resting after your flight from the rooftop pool or maybe in the spa. Then, with a private guide, you can nestle into the city’s sublime mix of old and new. Chiang Mai is where you will really uncover traditional culture, so today will be more of an introduction to all the extravagant design and the culture. After a brief tour of the iconic sites, you will journey into Bangkok for an evening at a night market.

Ancient temples soar above the luscious jungle, and their sculpted features are imbued with the details of yesteryear. Markets bustle with smells and sounds, and serenity reigns over temples and spas, which are idyllic places to take a moment and reflect on a continent’s wonder. One week is not enough to witness all of Asia, but many of the continent’s hidden highlights are neatly packaged into this private tour. Covering three countries and four destinations, this tour is a perfect blend of Asia’s contrasting experiences. With expert private guides that will guide you throughout your journey, you will be able to avoid the noisy tour groups and to savor a very personal collection of authentic experiences.
After landing in Bangkok, you will have a day to explore a variety of highlights, from local markets to the city’s grand design and contemporary display. Chiang Mai is Thailand’s cultural hub and also possesses the best spas in Asia. Therefore, you can expect an intimate spa experience after exploring the temples on day two. The following morning, you will explore more old-world Buddhism before a day trip to the hills, where a tribal Karen community will welcome you into their community before teaching you about their way of life. These three days in Thailand will be followed by a short flight to Luang Prabang, which is the region’s most evocative and unchanged old city.
Two nights are essential here because Luang Prabang’s atmosphere is magical after dark, which is when the temple-laden streets are softly lit and pedestrianized. On day four, you can discover the key highlights and develop a strong sense of Laotian heritage. The surrounding jungle will provide superb wildlife experiences on day five, while elephants and Asiatic black bears provide a different side to your travels in Asia. Then, after another direct flight, you will explore Angkor in style. Angkor Wat will be your highlight of day six before you explore the wider Angkor area on day seven. That is three countries, seven days, and an endless amount of local experiences along the way.
