Detailed Description

You can count on the wonders of the countryside to compliment the beauty of the cityscape on this 10-day tour meant for adventurers and animal lovers, culturists and beach goers, river rafters and luxury lounger. There is not one specific type of person who will enjoy the splendors of this getaway; there is something for everyone to be found within the temples and villages, sandy shores and skyscrapers. Taste the layered flavors of the food and enjoy the comforts of the accommodation. You will find marvelous history and spectacular opulence all framed within the wonders of Thailand. 

Your adventure begins in Bangkok where the metropolis wraps around the Chao Phraya River and beyond the reach of skyscrapers. You can hear the energy palpitating through the treasured streets and rising up the temple spires. Once you settle into Park Plaza Sukhumvit the city is yours. The following day you will visit the spectacular Grand Palace complex where famed temples decorate the already pristine landscape. From a reclining Buddha stretching to sensational lengths, to an Emerald Buddha sparkling beneath the lights, you will find the sites around the city as rich as the treasures. Travel to Chiang Mai, the largest city in northern Thailand, and will make yourself at home at the De Naga Hotel. In the evening you will enjoy a cooking demonstration and course at Baan Hongnual Cooking School where the magnificent flavors of the north will forever be uncovered for you.

Your adventure continues with a marvelous visit to the Patara Elephant Camp located in the forest outside of Chiang Mai. Watch the elephants train and enjoy their habitat before taking the opportunity to guide the elephants to water. They spray with glee as they bathe themselves and, perhaps, will engage you in this favored pass time. Tour the Mae Taeng River on a raft, traversing the whitewater with paddle in hand and adrenaline in heart before your arrival in Phuket and the cozy panorama at the Sawasdee Village. In the morning you will make your way to Koh Phi Phi by ferryboat, letting yourself be pampered at the Outrigger Phi Phi Island Resort and Spa. The days on the island paradise are yours, whether relaxing in the jungle or on the beach, snorkeling in the local archipelago or reveling with a massage beside the calm wake. Eventually you will make your way home with the cultural splendor and majestic adventure coming to end but with a heart and mind full of memories to take home as souvenirs.
