Bangkok - Finding the Path
The streets of Bangkok are paved with culture and modernity, running the depths of bustling to peaceful, towering skyscrapers to trickling waters. Arrive at the airport and be taken to your accommodation within the heart of the city by a private transfer. The city’s vibrancy is immediate, all encompassed within the stunning shapes of the sky and the rich scents that emanate along the walkways. Coconut oil sizzles and drifts along the wide paths. You can see the gentle rush of the Chao Phraya River beside the rising luxuries of your hotel. Settle into the city with a taste of Thailand while the remarkable reaches of Bangkok calm around you. Have a seat at the Arun Residence giving you a glowing view of the Temple of Dawn across the water, and highlighting the historic river highway draped in the aroma of fresh spice and herbs simmering in the evening light.

Your path begins in Bangkok, the capital city of Thailand. The continuous buzz of the city is filled with restful pockets beside the river and among the tree-lined neighborhoods. Once along a tour of the Grand Palace you will boat along the Chao Phraya River and come to the sensational royal grounds. Situated amongst manicured gardens and gorgeous architecture is not just the palace but stunning temples that rise and fall with thin chedis and towers. The following morning you will come to the celebrated floating markets outside of Bangkok to experience the marvelous merchants that drift through the river touting their luscious produce and goods. In the afternoon you will be guided through the World War II history of Kanchanaburi, where museums help commemorate the city and those that were affected by its Japanese occupation. The following day you will arrive in the largest city of the north, Chiang Mai.
The city of Chiang Mai is filled with beauty, from the colonial fortress to the towering summit of Doi Suthep. Surrounded by jungle and filled with the ever-present scent of fresh food and cultural history, the city itself is a great place to begin your northern exploration. In the coming days you will journey along the famous Mae Hong Son Loop that winds its way through the mountains, taking you through the cosmopolitan town of Pai, and along the historic border of Myanmar. Villages come to life as you find the Shan people and the Kayan people situated in the rolling mountains. Journey into the largest cave system in Thailand on flat bottom boats, and step onto a platform held on the highest peak in the country overlooking a cloud forest. Your final day along the road will bring you back to the cityscape of Chiang Mai before you eventually depart for home.
