Day-to-Day

DAY 1 Bangkok

Arrive in Bangkok as a VIP, greeted by a representative as you exit the aircraft, then use the diplomat premium lane for immigration. Meet your guide and driver in the Arrivals hall and take a private transfer to your hotel.

Enjoy the afternoon at leisure or unwind with a wellness treatment of your choice. The Four Seasons Riverside Spa has a unique Advanced Beauty Room that offers technologically advanced treatments such as the anti-cellulite Lipomassage by Endermologie and an infrared wrinkle-reducing process by Celluma. There is also a selection of traditional massages, wraps, scrubs, facials, gua sha treatments available, plus a hair salon, nail salon and gentleman’s barbershop.

In the evening, head out for a late night with one of Bangkok’s most celebrated chefs for food and drinks. Go to their favorite restaurants and bars where you’ll also meet their friends, some of Bangkok’s top dining scene leaders and innovators. Hang out and hear their story, learn about where they draws inspiration and passion, as well as about the establishments you visit and the stories behind their food.

DAY 2 Bangkok

Begin this morning with a personalized shopping trip and optional personal shopper. From designer labels to local brands, clothing and jewelry to bespoke furniture and antiques, Bangkok has it all and we can create a custom trip for you. Unwind from shopping with a massage or spa treatment.

In the late afternoon, be ready for another exclusive close-up with a Michelin-starred chef. Arrive at the restaurant before opening time and go behind the scenes into the kitchen. The chef will walk you through the kitchen and show you how the team gets ready for dinner service. Follow closely with a drink in hand, or put on an apron and lend a hand. Then, enjoy a special meal with the staff.

Return to the riverside and get on the most handsome boat on the Chao Phraya, a handcrafted luxury Hackercraft, for a sunset cruise. Relax and enjoy the riverside scenes and glittering golden temples as you sip champagne. 

DAY 3 Bangkok

This morning, try yoga and a nutritious breakfast on a private Thai-style antique boat. Spend the rest of the early afternoon relaxing or another curated shopping trip.

This evening, be ready for a walking tour through Bangkok’s vibrant Chinatown and sample a variety of foods from numerous street stalls and restaurants. Then, head to the nearby Soi Nana, the city’s hottest spot for drinking and go bar-hopping. Most of the old Thai-Chinese shophouses have been transformed into slick drinking dens, restaurants and galleries, with pop-up contemporary art exhibitions and complex cocktails.

DAY 4 Bangkok

Choose between a private cooking class with a senior chef or even a celebrity chef at a presitgious cooking school, or out in the countryside with a local host and restauranteur. Learn to craft Thai staples under the chef’s guidance, then enjoy the dishes for lunch. 

Later, burn off the lunch with a Muay Thai lesson at a private ring, before relaxing and having dinner at your leisure. In the evening, if you wish, head to the trendy upscale neighborhoods of Thonglor and Ekkamai for a bar-hopping tour.

DAY 5 Bangkok

Spend your final morning at leisure with a final spa treatment or wellness experience. Optionally, choose to visit a local morning market, such as the humble Klong Toei market. This is the largest wet market in the city, where many chefs come to gather inspiration, eat and buy ingredients. Enjoy a local breakfast here and buy some snack souvenirs before you take a private car to the airport, ready for your onward journey.
