Bangkok

The bustling city of Bangkok will not disappoint, from the peaceful temples, to practising your haggling skills at the local markets to treating your taste buds to the sensational street food, Bangkok is so diverse there is something to suit everyone. We recommend 3 nights in Bangkok and an early morning visit to Wat Arun Temple to see the sunrise, such a spectacular sight and not to be missed.

Khao Lak

The deserted beaches, crystal clear waters, and raw jungle forests of Khao Lak are all perfect for finding your own slice of Thai paradise. Spend seven nights here and relax on the beach or by the pool to complete your holiday, alternatively for those who want to explore more, Khao Lak has spectacular natural surroundings, unspoiled beach coastline, and a network of sandy beach trails running from Khao Lak to Bang Sak.

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.
