We've included a few optional extras in this itinerary to offer you optimal flexibility on your Thailand holiday.

DAY-TO-DAY

DAY 1: Bangkok

On your first day of your Classic Thailand luxury itinerary, we take you to Bangkok’s most famous site - the Grand Palace, a sprawling complex of sparkling gold structures. Next, you’ll head to Wat Arun - the Temple of the Dawn - and Wat Po, home of the Reclining Buddha. The wonderfully fragrant and brightly-hued flower market is next on the itinerary, an amazing spot for photos. Finally, you’ll learn the secrets of Thailand’s delicious cuisine with a Thai cooking class.

DAY 2: Bangkok

Today, you’ll sweat it out in the ring, learning the art of Thai kickboxing, also known as Muay Thai. Tame the adrenaline coursing through your body on a picturesque, leisurely private canal tour, learning why Bangkok was once referred to as the Venice of the East. Finally, wind down your day with a visit to the famous Jim Thompson House - a structure that pays homage to a pioneer of Bangkok’s silk trade.

DAY 3: Bangkok

Escape the hustle and bustle of Bangkok by taking a trip to Thailand’s ancient capital, Ayutthaya, just an hour’s drive from the city. The ancient ruins of the once thriving city are a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and today, you’ll enjoy the thrilling experience of exploring them on the back of an elephant.

DAY 4: Chiang Mai

Today, you’ll fly up to the fresh, natural capital of the North, Chiang Mai. You’ll start by visiting Doi Suthep village, a traditional tribal town that sits on the footsteps of one of the country’s most majestic mountains. Next up, you’ll take in the impressive Huay Kaew Waterfall, a multi-tiered natural structure with a powerful flow. You’ll enjoy a Khantoke dinner, a northern Thail tradition that surrounds guests with music and dance while they dine. Cap off your night by releasing a lantern into the sky. Be sure to make a wish - it’s another Thai tradition.

DAY 5: Chiang Mai

Start off your day with a visit to the Tiger Kingdom, where you can actually pet a fully-grown tiger and play with little tiger cubs. Next, you’ll visit Wat Umong, a 700-year-old Buddhist temple nestled into the bottom of Doi Suthep. After this, you’ll get some real insight into the local industry with a visit to a textile workshop, followed by a visit to Chiang Mai’s famous night bazaar, full of handicrafts and stunning artwork.

DAY 6: Chiang Rai

Today, you'll drive to the heart of the Golden Triangle which connects Thailand, Laos, and Myanmar - Chiang Rai. Here, you’ll check out the Hall of Opium, which presents an intriguing look into opium production and its effects on the region. Time to switch gears and learn the basics of mahout training, which involves being taught how to mount and dismount, ride, and wash an elephant. Finish your day off with a trek through the lush jungle.

DAY 7: Chiang Rai

A visit to the memorable, picturesque Doi Mae Salong, with its fresh air and breathtaking panoramas, will wake you up today. Enjoy lunch with a local hilltribe family, garnering insight into their unique way of life. Finish off your day with a hike through a tea plantation, an industry for which Chiang Rai is gaining increasing fame.

DAY 8: Phuket

Now that you’ve experienced the best of the natural North, it’s time to kick back and enjoy the hedonistic pleasures of Southern Thailand’s pristine beaches. Today, you’ll fly into Phuket, and begin your beach experience in true luxury - aboard a private yacht charter, from which scuba diving or snorkeling are favorite activities.

DAY 9: Phuket

More beach fun is in store for you today. You’ll get the chance to do more exploring of the sparkling azure waters that surround Phuket. Guests can try their luck at fishing for their own dinner, and take in the vibrant underwater coral reefs with snorkel gear.

DAY 10: Phuket

Guests are whisked away on a private boat today, exploring the pearl-like archipelago of the Andaman coast. Kayaks are available for those who wish to paddle themselves around at their own speed. If that weren’t enough, an unforgettable gourmet picnic lunch is served on a deserted beach.
