Thailand is rich in culture and tradition, your group will visit three different locations – city, mountain and island – to experience and learn about the country firsthand.
Bangkok is the center of Thailand – spiritually, culturally, politically, educationally, etc. Although quite metropolitan, ancient temples, palaces, markets and Buddhas are dispersed throughout the city.
Spend your first day in Thailand on a full-day guided tour where you will see Bangkok by tuk-tuk, skytrain and longtail boat. Visit the largest Buddha in the world, the rivers and canals of the city and eat lunch at a traditional Thai house opposite the river from The Grand Palace with views of Wat Arun.
Following the day in Bangkok, fly north to Chiang Mai. This is the largest city in Northern Thailand and was historically important to the massive trade routes throughout the kingdom. Now a popular tourist destination for both Thai and international people, there are plenty of adventures to be had.
Start your day with a sunrise balloon ride above local rice farms, or spend a few hours learning to plant rice on one of those farms. Try Thai kickboxing, raft the Ping River or visit an elephant camp. Shop at the famous Night Bazaar where you can buy just about anything.
Koh Samui is an island of beautiful white sand beaches in the blue-green waters of the Gulf of Siam. Spend two days relaxing at this ideal destination or get your adrenaline up with countless activities. Available activities range from sailing to a canopy adventure, jet skiing to scuba diving, snorkeling to elephant trekking, and much, much more. Just make sure you save some time to enjoy the scenery.
