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 Yao Yai

Located in the middle of Phan Nga Bay and rich in unspoilt natural beauty, perfect for keen photographers, you’ll enjoy off-the-beaten-track heaven as you lounge on the sands with spectacular ocean views ahead, before exploring the island by bicycle or canoe to find deserted coves and peaceful shorelines, ideal for a romantic picnic for two. With the lively shores of Phuket just a short trip away, escape the hustle and bustle and head to this quiet, serene refuge where all you’ll be thinking of is where to snorkel next.

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.
