OVERVIEW ITINERARY TOUR DETAILS REVIEWS SUGGESTED HOTELS

Discover the wonders of Thailand’s culture and cuisine as you travel from the buzzing capital Bangkok to beautiful Chiang Mai and beyond, partaking in a range of experiences on the way. From hill tribe meetings, lunch with village locals and classic Thai picnics, to cooking classes and celebrity chef’s dinners.

Dine high up in Bangkok’s skyline for your first night, with an evening at a stylish rooftop restaurant. Head to Wat Pho the next morning to witness the monks’ magical morning chant. Let our guide reveal the fascinating history behind the Grand Palace, home to the mysterious Emerald Buddha.

Enjoy a delicious dessert made with vermicelli and coconut milk before going to one of Bangkok’s best markets, with a huge range of top-quality foods and agricultural products to buy and try. Dine at a famous restaurant which supports a local non-profit organization, then learn the secrets of Thai cooking at a cooking school. Hop on a boat to a small island which is home to some of the best foods in this part of Thailand.

In the evening, enjoy a quintessentially Thai picnic in the park. Try the classic fried-noodle dish pad thai, at one of its best purveyors where the dish has been made for over 60 years; before heading to lively, colorful Chinatown, where a myriad sights, sounds and smells await.

Change the pace now as you fly to the beautiful ‘Rose of the North’, Chiang Mai. Take part in your own private blessing ceremony at the iconic Doi Suthep and see the glittering lights of the city from above. Enjoy dinner at the home of a celebrity chef, who will prepare a delicious multi-course meal for you. Journey by elephant and bamboo raft to visit hill tribe villages deep in the Thai countryside.

Have a delicious home-cooked lunch at a community ecotourism project and visit the largest fruit and herb winery in Thailand. Explore the Golden Triangle area and try out the famous Oolong tea and ‘Doi Chang’ coffee which is produced in this region.
