Start your Journey
Destination 1 - Bangkok
A trip to the city wouldn't be complete without a spot of shopping; from swanky upmarket boutiques to authentic market stalls, there's something for everyone. We recommend visiting one of the floating markets and immersing yourself in the chaos as the locals cook and sell you various treats as they paddle by. Another great way to see the city is by Tuk Tuk; hire a driver and spend a few hours hopping between the many stunning temples. For the best view in the house, head to a roof top bar and take in the sparkling scenes of the city at night time.
Destination 2 - Koh Yao Yai
Located among tropical rainforests and nestled on a private beach, the Santhiya Resort & Spa Koh Yao Yai has a true castaway feel and affords you stunning views across tropical landscapes.
