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.

This itinerary is an example. It’s designed to inspire you and provide you with thoughtfully curated ideas. You can choose to do this exact itinerary or completely personalize it. All trips are 100% bespoke.


  • Cooking Class: Travelers will learn to master authentic Thai dishes at a prestigious culinary school by the Chao Phraya, which uses fresh ingredients picked from its own organic gardens.
  • Thailand's Toscana: The fertile ground north of Bangkok is ideal for viticulture and the vineyards here offer scenic bike rides, wine tasting, and surprisingly delicious Italian fare.
  • Wildlife: Spot wild elephants, monkeys, and deer on a jungle trek through Khao Yai’s national parklands.


Day 1


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.

Why We Love This Hotel

Chao Phraya Views: Every guest room, suite, and villa at Capella Bangkok - as well as the dining venues and many of the facilities - boast river views. What's more, the sun sets just across the river from the property, casting gorgeous orange hues over the hotel and providing superlative evening sundowner locations from anywhere on the grounds.

A New Riviera: The Riviera theme continues in Capella Bangkok's fine dining restaurant, Côte by Mauro Colagreco, where the three-Michelin-star chef has reinterpreted French-Italian Riviera flavors, inspired by traditional recipes and culinary heritage.

Sophistication & Luxury: From contemporary design featuring custom artwork by local Thai artists, to the expansive wellness center with water therapy and locally-inspired treatments, to a desserts-and-cocktails salon bedecked in black and gold, the Capella Bangkok exudes finesse.

Why We Love This Hotel

Location: While Bangkok is home to several world-class hotels, only a handful are situated right on the Chao Phraya River. We love the Four Seasons Hotel for its amazing riverside location with easy access to the city center. This property is ideal for seclusion and relaxation and yet is still close to the action.

Design: The architects have carefully considered the blending of indoor and outdoor space to create a light and complementary blend of modern design and serene green spaces.

Spaciousness: The property stretches over 1,100 feet along the banks of the Chao Phraya River, also known as, "The Grand Duke,” leaving plenty of room for spacious suites, lush outdoor grounds and two infinity pools.

Day 2


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 National Park

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.
