Let the temples of Bangkok and Chiang Mai and the laidback charm of Chiang Rai dazzle you on this suggested itinerary through Thailand’s culture and traditions. Tour the palaces, meet the locals in hillside tribes and learn to cook tasty Thai dishes before finishing with a stay in Chiang Rai. Chiang Rai is great for scenic surroundings, national parks, botanical gardens, caves, and excellent trekking areas. Referred to by many as the Gateway to Golden Triangle, Chiang Rai offers a more outdoorsy vibe.

Day 1

Chiang Mai

Chiang Mai, nestled in the hills of the north, is a glorious city with the feel of a traditional village. Home to hundreds of stunning temples, it is Thailand's second city. The best known and possibly the most impressive temple is Wat Doi Suthep. Take a cooking class to learn how to make your favourite Thai dishes at home. If you want distinctive Thai culture, arts, and traditions amid lush countryside and stunning mountain scenery, Chiang Mai will not disappoint.

Day 1

Chiang Rai

We love Chiang Rai for its scenic surroundings, national parks, botanical gardens, caves, and excellent trekking areas. Take a bicycle ride around the small town centre, visit Chiang Rai Beach, and head out to the lush scenery of the nearby hills and forest parks.

Day 1

Bangkok

A blend of modern-day sophistication and centuries-old traditions, Bangkok is an intriguing city to explore. Bursting with culture, bustling with people and plenty of temples and palaces amongst skyscrapers Bangkok is an exciting and tantalising city that has plenty to offer.
