This vibrant and contrasting city offers a fascinating mix of traditional and modern, while still preserving it's cultural heritage.

The tiny island of Koh Kood is one of Thailand’s most easterly islands and can be reached by a short flight. It offers outstanding natural beauty, unspoilt beaches and wonderful hiking opportunities. This is a low-key destination, and one which should not be overlooked

Itinerary Breakdown

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.

Koh Kood

Unspoilt beaches and easy going hiking trails - Koh Kood is stunning both on land and in the water. Diving conditions are excellent from October - June, and this is a big attraction of the island. Its close proximity to Cambodia makes it a great option if you want to experience more than one country.

Tailor your itinerary

Why have an off the shelf holiday when you can go bespoke? Here are a few suggestions on how we can start to tailor make this itinerary into something really special that suits you to a tee.

Floating market Bangkok

Excursion

Floating Market

Visit  the world famous floating market of "Damnern Saduak". The colourfully clad merchants at these lively markets paddle along congested canals in sturdy canoes laden with fresh fruits and vegetables to sell to shoppers on the banks. There is a lot of chatter and activity - bargaining is common. You visit the lively market at its best early in the morning, before the crowds arrive and the day's heat breaks.

Ayutthaya

Excursion

Ancient Ayutthaya by River Cruise - Full Day

Ayutthaya lies about an hour’s journey by coach to the north of Bangkok and was the proud and powerful ancient capital of Siam until its destruction, 230 or so years ago. Much of the fabulous ornate city was lost at that time but what remains will still give you an excellent idea of life during the 4 centuries that the Kings of Ayutthaya ruled.
