Thailand- City Culture and Beach
Updated: May 22
Enjoy some of Thailand's most wonderful gems. The bustling city of Bangkok, the more chilled out cultured city of Chiang Mai and the white sands and local islands of Phuket. A great itinerary if you want an introduction to what Thailand has to offer, exploring three different areas all with lots to of opportunites to see and learn about the wonders of Thailand.
Duration: 14 days, 13 nights
Starts: Bangkok, Thailand
Cost from: £1020 per per person
With flights from: £1695 per person
Day 1: Bangkok (3 nights) Arrive into Bangkok and take your private transfer to Bangkok city centre.
The hotel is very central, eco friendly and has a rooftop pool to rejuvenate after your flight. Breakfast is included during your stay. Spend the next 3 days exploring the wonders of Bangkok including the night markets, the local street food and buzzing nightlife. Be sure to try the local fresh fruit smoothies (lassies) and have a ride in a tuk tuk. Suggested day tours I can help you with are 'Hidden Scenes of Bangkok'. A local guide will take you round some of the secret spots of Bangkok and you'll get your chance to see the floating market on the river.
'Multicultural Bangkok behind the scenes by bike'. A locals guide around the districts of Bangkok. 'The Grand Palace'. The centre of Bangkok, an absolute must see with its gold and red colours sparkling in the sunshine.
Day 4: Chiang Mai (4 nights)
After your short flight you will arrive in Chiang Mai in Northern Thailand. Your transfers will be waiting to take you to your 4* apartment with breakfast included. Chiang Mai is most famous for it's culture and beautiful ancient temples. The scenery in Northern Thailand is mountainous and it's the perfect place to go for a trek or to do some cycling and maybe even see elephants in the wild. Find a restaurant offering stunning views and stop off for refreshments. Chiang Mai is the perfect place to learn a new skill and take a Thai cooking class where you will be taken to the local market to pick some fresh produce before heading back to class to get cooking. The night market is a must see, offering traditional clothing, street food and a chance to see a cabaret show. I would highly suggest adding a tour to go and see 'The White Temple' in Chiang Rai, a privately owned temple with some less traditional and more unusual murals on the walls, some of which you might recognise.
Day 8: Phuket (6 nights)
Touch down in Phuket, sit back and enjoy as your transfer takes you to your luxurious hotel for some rest and relaxation for the rest of your stay in Thailand. This 5* hotel is located on Karon beach, a quieter suburb of Phuket. The hotel mixes traditional and modern Thai decor, features 4 outdoor swimming pools and has an onsite spa. Breakfast is included in your stay and you are just a short walk away from local restaurants and shops. During your stay in Phuket enjoy island hopping. You could take a trip to Phi Phi Island for the day, or go to James Bond Island and do some canoeing around the limestone cliffs as well as snorkelling in the clear water. There are also wildlife opportunities to visit an elephant sanctuary or see monkeys in the wild. Day 14: Say farewell to Thailand, your transfer to Phuket airport is included.
