Day-by-Day

Day 1

Bangkok

Start your journey in Bangkok, the city of angels. The capital and most populous city in Thailand, Bangkok is a rapidly modernizing metropolis that offers glittering skyscrapers, mega malls, and efficient sky train lines alongside opulent gilded royal buildings, sidewalk-lined street food carts, and ubiquitous shrines and pictures of the monarchy.

Upon arrival, you will be met at the airport and transferred via private vehicle into the city to your hotel. Check in and relax for the rest of the afternoon. Unwind with a coconut or lemongrass drink as you enjoy bucolic riverside scenes from your hotel.

In the evening as the day starts to cool down, it is time to dive into the bustling action at Chinatown on a streetfood tour. Eat your way down the streets of this massive open air food market and try staple dishes such as sizzling oyster omelets, egg noodles with crab and wontons, grilled satay skewers, curry over rice, and fresh fruits and juices. Learn about the convergence of Thai and Chinese cultures in Bangkok through its food. It is estimated that as much as a third to a half of the Thai population have Chinese ancestry.

Day 2

Bangkok

Today you will explore Bangkok's most famous and historically significant sites, most of which are situated on Rattanakosin Island. When Rama I founded the city as the capital of his new kingdom in 1782, he chose the bend of the riverbank and turned it into a royal island by digging canals to form moats.

Begin with the Grand Palace, a sprawling royal complex of sparkling gilded structures. Nearby is Wat Pho, home of the Reclining Buddha and instruction center of Thai massage. Peruse the amulet market and flower market, and learn their cultural importance, before getting on a traditional long-tail boat for a cruise through the canals, known as klongs. When Bangkok was first founded, the land was mostly marshy swampland and thus canals instead of roads were the main mode of transportation. Today though most canals have been paved over, few still exist. See old and renovated wooden homes that fringe these waterways, a slice of life of yesteryear. End the day at Wat Arun, a striking temple on the west bank covered with over one million glazed ceramic tiles.

Day 3

Bangkok

Arise early to visit one of Bangkok's morning wet markets. Feel the frenetic energy of the buzzing market and be sure to try a hot local breakfast while there such as piping hot jok. Then, visit the teak home of Jim Thomson, a cultural icon who is reputed to have saved the Thai silk craft before mysteriously disappearing into the Malaysian jungles. If you wish, experience the megamall phenomenon that is Siam Paragon, which features a multiplex cinema, bowling alley, concert hall, and Southeast Asia's largest aquarium. Round out the day with a stroll along Bangkok's first road which parallels the river. This area is undergoing a renaissance thanks to young street artists and entrepreneurs refitting old shophouses with hip cafes, restaurants, and bars, and art galleries. When the sun goes down, it’s time to experience the city’s nightlife with a bar hopping tour down one of Bangkok’s coolest streets lined with bars. You’ll even get a hands-on lesson in gin infusions.

Day 4

Chiang Mai

Today you'll fly up north to Chiang Mai, the capital of the former Lanna Kingdom. Once a strong rival to the Ayutthaya Kingdom, Lanna was eventually overthrown and absorbed into the emerging Siam nation-state in the late 1800s. The distinct language, culture, foods, and traditions of the Lanna still exist today in Chiang Mai and other northern regions of Thailand.

Learn about the fascinating history of this historic city and its double moat on an old city tour by rickshaw. Then survey the city and the surrounding land from above at the top of Doi Suthep, a mountain just outside of the city. At the peak is one of the country's most venerated temples, and where you will receive a blessing. Before heading to your hotel, make a final stop at Wat Umong, one of the most unique and least-visited temples of the city. The temples's underground tunnels were built to contain a mad monk.

Chiang Mai

Go beyond the basic pad Thai and green curries and learn another side of this complex cuisine with a private cooking class focused on Lanna cuisine. Jungle vegetables and herbs, pork, and sticky rice are cornerstones of this regional cuisine, which inclines towards salty and spicy tastes. Create dishes using market and farm fresh ingredients over a traditional charcoal stove and enjoy your lunch in a countryside garden.

Alternatively, the adventure-inclined can instead opt to take advantage of Chiang Mai's jungles and rivers and go white-water rafting or ziplining.

 In the afternoon, experience this old city's contemporary culture with a visit to the Maiiam Contemporary Art Museum and a stroll through the trendy Nimman district which is known for boutiques, cafes, and restaurants.

Hanoi

Journey onward to Vietnam’s capital in the north, Hanoi. It was once the capital of French Indochina, then became the capital of unified Vietnam after the northern forces won the war. Today it is a largely modern and compact city that still retains its idyllic charm.

Begin with an introduction into Vietnam's arts, starting at the National Museum of Fine Arts, followed by a traditional water puppet show at the local theatre. Those interested in this unique variation of the ancient Asian puppet tradition can opt to meet a top artist and be welcomed to his home for a private show.

Take a cyclo ride around the Old Quarter in the heart of the city, evocative of its French-colonial past, and explore a fresh market by foot.

Saigon

Head south to Saigon via flight from Danang in the morning. In the afternoon, experience the bustle of this exciting city which used to be the capital of the south.

Take a stroll around a downtown boulevard lined with impressive and historically significant French colonial buildings including the Opera House, the Continental Hotel, General Post Office, and City Hall. Then head to Cholon, the city's Chinatown, which dates back to 1778 and is home to a few temples, pagodas, a mosque, and a small Catholic cathedral.
