Detailed Description

Thailand is an eclectic amalgamation of lush jungles, vibrant beaches, delicious food, and exceptional culture. Your 12-day Thailand itinerary has you exploring the cities and countryside like a local, venturing through secluded forests and hidden shorelines. When you arrive in Bangkok, your private transfer is waiting for you at the airport. Your hotel is located in the heart of the bustling capital city. Your private tour takes you on the Chao Phraya River to visit the exquisite temples and stunning Grand Palace. Follow your guide through the secret alleyways that have created a labyrinth in the 200-year-old neighborhood of Chinatown. Visit a market dedicated strictly to amulets and talismans, and explore historic homes located beneath towering skyscrapers.

A private transfer escorts you from the city center to Khao Yai National Park. The verdant landscape is filled with wildlife and waterfalls. Your guide leads you on a tour of the jungle hills. Consider learning more about your Thailand travel agencies that strive to provide you with a highly personalized itinerary that seeks to offer a remarkably memorable Thailand vacation. You can trek through the trees or follow the paved roads in search of wild elephants and deer. Fly to Chiang Mai, the culinary and cultural capital of Thailand situated in the north and surrounded by lush forests. Spend time enjoying the vast array of local markets, ranging from handmade goods to home-cooked cuisine. A half-day tour takes you out of the city to a traditional family home.

You select ingredients from the garden and learn about the importance of Thai cuisine to the culture and its people. Visit the Friend of the Asian Elephant Hospital, and explore the town of Lampang, where horse-drawn carriages continue as the dominant form of public transportation and lumber baron mansions line the streets. Travel to the island paradise of Koh Lanta situated in the Andaman Sea. The pleasures of the Thai life are found in the tranquility and purity of the island and its surrounding waters.

A full day cruise takes you to visit four nearby islands. You can snorkel, kayak, and search the sea caves for hidden beaches. With a day at leisure, you can lounge on the white sand beaches, explore Koh Lanta’s villages and national parks, or even indulge in a massage. On your final day on the island, your private transfer escorts you to the Krabi Airport for your flight to Bangkok. From Bangkok, you continue onwards to home.
