Traveling in style, this private tour of Thailand boasts a myriad of stunning landscapes, heart-warming hospitality, uncommon wildlife, tantalizing cuisine and the list goes on and on.

Your introduction to “The Land of Smiles” begins by touching down Bangkok, arguably the most exhilarating city in all of Southeast Asia, a modern metropolis of towering skyscrapers and ancient temples. Its friendly people and endearing Thai culture will make any visitor fall in love with this magical kingdom. Here, we hit the city’s must-sees of including the Royal Grand Palace, Wat Trimit, Wat Pho and the Floating Market, yet still leave plenty of free time to relax and define your own version of Bangkok. Take a cooking lesson at one of the city’s famous cooking schools and bring home Thailand’s culinary secrets; trek, bike or fly (zip-line) through Bangkok’s countryside of coconut plantations and virgin rainforests; or just sit back and enjoy a glass of wine at a roof top jazz bar overlooking the gleaming Thai capital – the city caters to every whim and to everyone.

After an exciting few days in the big city, we journey north to the tranquil countryside of Chiang Rai. Renowned for its picturesque natural beauty, we embark on a culturally-inspiring boat trip along the Mae Kok to one of the region’s many hilltribe villages to observe their primitive way of life. Tour the famous Golden Triangle on the mighty Mekong and cross the border into Myanmar to catch a rare glimpse of Burmese life. Then, travel south to the deep rooted heritage city of Chiang Mai, a town of unsurpassed charm that welcomes you with its alluring temples, warm friendly people and an atmosphere instantly transcends your body & mind from the very moment you arrive. Here, haggle your way to incredible bargains at the bustling Night Bazaar lined with playful vendors, colorful stalls and sidewalk eateries; embark on an elephant safari exploring the jungle on an elephant’s back and on a bamboo raft, or simply relax and indulge in one of the world’s most luxurious spas for which Thailand is so famous.

We conclude this incredible trip with some R&R in the beautiful tropical paradise of Phuket. Blessed with magnificent coves and bays, powdery, palm-fringed white beaches, sparkling island-dotted seas, superb dining and bustling nightlife, Phuket creates the perfect ambiance for a truly memorable holiday.

From Bangkok’s bustling cityscape to Chiang Rai’s timeless hill tribe villages. Chiang Mai’s wildlife adventures to Phuket’s spectacular beaches. They’re all here. Your trip of a lifetime awaits.
