Thailand is known as the “Land of Smiles,” and this incredible 10-day adventure will have you grinning from ear to ear. This itinerary brings you from large cities to an exotic island via private jet, so you spend less time travelling and more time experiencing. From the noise and chaos of Bangkok’s Khao San road to relaxing in your very own island oasis, explore the best of Thailand in record time, while staying at stunning Four Seasons hotels throughout the Kingdom.
Why travel by private jet?
Soak up the best of Thailand with the comfort and style of private jet travel, watching hours of overland travel stresses melt away with a nice glass of bubbly. With only 10 days to experience this large and diverse country, your private jet will allow you to spend as much time as possible in the city, in the jungle and on the beach, instead of on the road or in terminals.
Your exotic Thai adventure begins in the bustling city of Bangkok. When you arrive, you will be transferred to the luxurious Four Seasons Bangkok, where you can freshen up before dinner at Nahm, Asia’s number one restaurant. Later on, head out to one of the city’s famous rooftop patios to check out the view or back to your hotel to enjoy a good night’s sleep.
Enjoy a full day in Bangkok: visit the golden Grand Palace, take a tour of Wat Arun, known as the Temple of the Dawn, or explore the shops and stalls of the famous Khao San road. Try some delicious street food or wander into any of the incredible restaurants the city has to offer for dinner before heading back to the Four Seasons for another night.
Today, you’ll head by private jet to Chiang Mai, an urban playground in the north of the country. After settling in at your hotel, Four Seasons Chiang Mai, spend the afternoon and evening exploring the city’s temples and food carts before visiting the famous night bazaar and purchasing some goodies to take back home.
Spend a full day exploring Chiang Mai and its surrounding areas, from the nearby tribal village of Doi Suthep, to the majestic Huay Kaew Waterfall, to the Tiger Kingdom, where you can get up-close-and-personal with a mama tiger and her adorable cubs. After a busy day of sightseeing, enjoy another night at Four Seasons Chiang Mai.
Today, you’ll drive to Chiang Rai, another large northern Thai city situated near the borders of both Laos and Myanmar - an area known as the Golden Triangle. Spend the afternoon visiting the famous Wat Rong Khun (or “White Temple”), an intricate Buddhist temple, before heading to your camp for the evening, the Four Seasons Tented Camp. Enjoy dinner as a group before resting up for the next day’s adventures.
After breakfast at camp, head out of the city for a trek through the jungle before enjoying lunch with a local tribal family, learning about the traditional way of life. In the afternoon, you’ll have the chance to ride (and wash!) an elephant, learning the basics of malhout training. When you return to the city, enjoy one more dinner and evening at your camp.
In the morning, enjoy a visit to the Hall of Opium, where you will learn all about the history and current practices of opium production, before boarding your private jet to Koh Samui, the largest island in the Gulf of Thailand. When you’ve reached the oasis that is Samui, you’ll be transferred to the Four Seasons resort for a dip in the ocean, dinner and a wonderful night’s sleep.
You have another full day on the island of Samui, so take advantage of all the great activities available to you: bliss out with a spa treatment, kick some butt - literally! - in a Muay Thai lesson and eat as much fresh seafood as possible. Enjoy a final dinner with your group and another night at your resort.
Your Thai adventure has unfortunately come to an end, though you will always have photos, memories and a little bit of sand in your bag! Today, you will be transferred to the Samui airport where you will catch a flight back home or back to the mainland to continue your Southeast Asian explorations.
