This unique itinerary by Remote Lands combines cultural pursuits with the great outdoors. After visiting key historical sights within Old Bangkok we travel to Thailand’s wine country - Khao Yai - for a bike tour through vineyards and sample some of the region’s wares. The National Parkland of Khao Yai hosts the final day’s activity - a trek deep into evergreen forest, home to hundreds of species of birds and mammals.

Highlights

  • Visit the Grand Palace and see the Temple of the Emerald Buddha, Thailand’s most sacred temple.
  • Marvel and the sights and smells of the Flower Market.
  • Try some local Thai wine during a trip to the vineyard.
  • Spot elephants, monkeys and deer on a jungle trek through Khao Yai’s national parkland.

Day-to-Day

Day 1 Bangkok

Starting at Bangkok’s historical and cultural epicenter, we visit the Grand Palace, located in Old Bangkok. Here, you can see Thailand’s most revered temple - the Temple of the Emerald Buddha. Next, we explore the canals by longtail boat on a thrilling ride through the khlongs of Thonburi, to see how life unfurls within the river communities. Next, it’s off to the truly spellbinding Wat Arun - the Temple of the Dawn - or to Wat Po, which houses the largest indoor Reclining Buddha. For a luxurious first night, we recommend The Peninsula hotel on the Chao Phraya River, one of the city’s landmark properties.

Day 2 Bangkok

Thais are intensely proud of their cuisine, and today you can gain some insight into this passion with a Thai cooking class. Learn how to cook famous Thai dishes at a prestigious culinary school by the river, using fresh produce from the school’s organic gardens. Next on the itinerary we bring you to Pak Klong Talaat - the flower market - is next on the itinerary, where fruit, vegetables and bundles of fresh flowers arrive by the truckload from nearby provinces. In the evening, it’s over to nearby Yaowarat Road, at the center of Chinatown, a treasure trove of fresh seafood and authentic Thai-Chinese cuisine.

Day 3 Khao Yai

In the morning we head to the mountains Khao Yai, where the cooler climate creates fertile ground for Thailand’s growing viticulture industry. The lush green environs of the vineyards are the perfect setting for a leisurely bike ride, enjoying cool mountain air and even stopping to sample local wines. At the end of the day, retreat to one of the area’s five-star mountain resorts - we recommend The Kirimaya Resort, unsurpassed for luxury in Khao Yai.

Day 4 Khao Yai

Today we explore Thailand’s third largest national park, home to countless animal species, including Asiatic bears, Asian elephants, gibbons, sambar deer and more than 400 species of birds. On this three- to four-hour jungle trek we take in just a fraction of this UNESCO site’s beautiful landscapes, including waterfalls, lakes, caves and cliffs.
