ULTIMATE THAILAND

Time-worn temples, bustling cities and tropical beaches… this two-week journey through Thailand has all the necessary elements for an Ultimate holiday.
THAILAND, SOUTHEAST ASIA

ABOUT THE ITINERARY

You’ll begin in the urban sprawl of Bangkok with its vibrant markets, gleaming shopping malls and teeming street life. Then comes Chiang Rai – set in cloud-cloaked mountains and surreal landscapes – and the magical temples of Chiang Mai. Expect to visit Buddhist shrines, soaring monastery complexes and the tiny hill villages of the once-notorious Golden Triangle.

Then it’s time to relax on one of Thailand’s most revered beaches, set on the tiny island of Yao Noi in Phang Nga Bay – reached by boat from Phuket.

Bangkok | Thailand | Ultimate Travel Company
DAY 1-2

BANGKOK

You’ll be met at the airport and taken to your luxury hotel which will prove the ideal base for venturing into the exciting swirl that is Bangkok, with its eclectic markets, shopping malls with designer boutiques, picturesque canals, palaces, gleaming temples and hectic nightlife.

The following day a city tour with a private guide will show you the fragrant Flower Market, the brilliantly coloured Grand Palace and the Temple of the Emerald Buddha, including the Funeral Palace, Throne and Coronation Halls. After seeing Wat Arun and the 46-metre-long reclining Buddha at Wat Pho, you’ll take a cruise along the Thonburi khlongs (canals) to watch the serene lifestyle of the people living on the river banks – a fine contrast to the busy city.

Stay: Two nights in a Siam Suite at The Siam – bed & breakfast

You’ll tour around an elaborate Buddhist temple dating back to 1296, as well as the historic area of this old moated city, Wat Chedi Luang, Wat Phra Singh. You’ll also visit the Chiang Mai National Museum and the Tribal Museum with its displays of weapons, musical instruments, jewellery and artefacts.

Private guided tours will take you past the city’s largest market and to Wat Doi Suthep – a 14th-century monastery reached by a stairway of 290 steps. Your final day in Chiang Mai includes a trip around the local produce market followed by a relaxing cruise aboard a bamboo raft through the serene countryside.

You’ll visit a Karen hill village and meet villagers wearing their national dress before moving on to the old opium-producing village of Lisu and Akha Village, set in the jungle.

CHANG RAI

On day six of your trip you fly off to Chiang Rai – a place of surreal scenery and amazingly photogenic mountains wreathed in seas of clouds and mist. Along the way you’ll visit the striking Wat Rong Khun, otherwise known as the ‘White Temple’, a privately-owned art exhibit built in the style of a Buddhist temple.

Chiang Rai is a fairytale setting populated by colourful hill tribes, each with their own customs, distinct lifestyle and crafts that include jewellery making, silverware, textile production and embroidery. You can trek through this magical area – set in the heart of the Golden Triangle formed by Thailand, Laos and Myanmar – by bike, on foot or aboard an elephant. Cooking classes and spa treatments are also on the menu.
