Bangkok and Khao Lak Multi Centre

Bustling Bangkok and unspoilt Khao Lak beaches

In conjunction with the Thai Tourist board and their Eat Thai, Visit Thai Campaign, we have put together this fabulous itinerary where delicious food and refreshing beverages are up front and central.

Begin your trip in the vibrant capital, Bangkok. Stay at one of the most prestigious addresses in the city – Lebua Tower Club. The hotel has won many awards for its exemplary levels of accommodation and service – but may be most renowned to fans of The Hangover movie series, filmed at the very top of the hotel in the famed Sky Bar. Sample the Hangovertini, which was created for the cast when they filming. The Dome at Lebua is the hotels' collection of restaurants and bars, the likes of which have never been seen before in the city, including Champagne and oysters, European cuisine at the two Michelin star awarded Mezzaluna and breeze, Lebua homage to Asian Cuisine.

Just outside is the  BTS Sky Train and expressway which puts the entire city within reach if you want to explore the local street food. The most famous Thai street food is som tam. Made from unripe papaya mixed with shrimp paste, peanuts, tomatoes and green beans. A few chilies are thrown in to spice it up, but you can ask for it to be mai pet (less spicy) if you prefer.

Next travel south and enjoy the deserted beaches, crystal clear waters, and raw jungle forests of Khao Lak.  For those who want to explore, Khao Lak has spectacular natural surroundings, unspoiled beach coastline, and a network of sandy beach trails running from Khao Lak to Bang Sak.

We recommend a stay at The Sarojin, a secluded luxury boutique Beach hideaway. Start each day here – when you are ready, as the a la carte breakfast with sparkling wine is available each day until 6 pm. There is a resident “imaginer” who will delight in creating a range of bespoke experiences for you. How about a Thai cooking class set next to a beautiful waterfall? A private dinner on a private island or get involved in the Sarojin Khao Lak Community Fund where you join the Sarojin Chef on a local street food tour and cooking class which the results are then donated to local orphaned children.

Our Experts Recommend:
  • Sampling the street food in Bangkok
  • Try bartering at the colourful night markets
  • Make time to visit the floating market in Bangkok
  • Visit nearby Khao Sok; the oldest evergreen rainforest in the world
  • Take a gentle hike to explore the many waterfalls around Khao Lak
