Itinerary in Detail
On arrival in Bangkok, the charming capital city of Thailand, your private guide and driver will greet you at the airport and drive you to your hotel. The rest of the day is free for you to spend as you please.
Your day will commence with a visit to the magnificent Wat Pho, which houses the sacred Reclining Buddha. A holy ceremony is held there every day and locals visit to offer worship. As the morning light shines on the orange robes of Buddhist monks, they solemnly begin their daily chanting in the hall.
Hop on a tuk-tuk (three-wheeled passenger vehicle) and head to the imposing Grand Palace. After your visit to the magnificent royal palace, take a longtail boat ride across the Chao Phraya River to the iconic Wat Arun, one of the oldest temples in Bangkok.
Conclude your day with a visit to the bustling Chinatown area.
Established in 1962 as Thailand's first national park, Khao Yai is an ecological wonderland with plenty of wildlife and lovely trails through jungles and mountains. It is about a 2 hours' drive from Bangkok.
Upon your arrival in Khao Yai, your tour guide will show you the way to the viewpoint from where you can spot gibbons, pig-tailed macaques, and hornbills. Next, head to the Khao Yai National Park Museum.
Trek along the Gibbon Route to reach Haew Narok Waterfall. If you are lucky, you may see wild elephants wandering around.
Your day ends with a night safari tour. Transfer to a four-wheel-drive vehicle with a spotlight to see civets, deer, barking deer, porcupine, wild dogs, and elephants. Transfer to your hotel after the tour.
After breakfast, your private guide and driver will pick you up from the hotel and transfer you to Khao Yai.
You will trek along another trail, Haew Suwat Waterfall, which is a scenic route with two spectacular waterfalls on the way, and the ideal place to spot crocodiles, monitor lizards, and Chinese water dragons. Appreciate the natural beauty of the forest on the way. After all that physical effort, you will be rewarded with stunning views of Haew Suwat Waterfall at the end of the trail. The waterfall scene where Leonardo DiCaprio jumps from a high cliff in the Hollywood movie 'The Beach' was shot there.
After the sightseeing, return to Bangkok and transfer to your hotel.
Get a glimpse into the lives of the locals as you explore the Maeklong Railway Market. See how the stall owners conduct their business along the train track. It's hard to believe that trains pass through this busy market until you witness the sellers pulling away and then putting back their stalls upon a train's arrival and departure.
Visit the Damnoen Saduak Floating Market, where the exciting sight of numerous boats laden with various goods, such as fruit, snacks, and other specialties, is sure to grab your attention. It is the most popular floating market in Thailand and is great for photo opportunities, food sampling, and gaining an insight into the local way of life in Thailand.
You will fly to the lovely northern city of Chiang Mai following breakfast. Private transfers with guide facilities are included in this tour.
Spend some leisure time at a vibrant food and flower market, and learn how the locap ls pick fresh fruits and beautiful flowers.
Continue Doi Suthep, a natural wonder in Chiang Mai. The views from the mountain and the beauty of the surrounding area make the trip to the summit worthwhile. Stop at Wat Phra That, one of Northern Thailand's most sacred temples. You will be able to catch panoramic views of Chiang Mai city and the surrounding areas from the temple.
Return to Chiang Mai and take a rickshaw ride through its busy streets and quiet alleys. Sample various delicacies, including Northern Thai-style noodle soup, stir-fries, pad Thai (stir-fried Thai noodles), khao man gai (chicken rice), khao soi (a Burmese-influenced noodle dish), fresh fruits, and a variety of Thai desserts.
Learn about Chiang Mai's local street food by touring food stalls and shophouses, especially around the Three Kings Monument area.
Situated in a pristine and picturesque valley in Chiang Mai, about 1? hours outside the city, Elephant Rescue Park is a paradise for rescued elephants. It provides a safe, loving, and secure environment for all the elephants that live there.
Spend half a day caring for the elephants. You are allowed to interact with the elephants, feed them, hug them, and even bathe them.
On Day 9, you will travel down to southern Thailand to see one of the best tourist destinations on the Thai west coast, Krabi. Your tour includes private transfers and private guide services. Spend the rest of the day wandering around your hotel by Ao Nang Beach.
You will have two free days to experience the natural charm of Krabi and entertain yourself by trying out various activities.
The untouched tropical beaches of Krabi are the perfect destination for laid-back couples and families. Ao Nang Center Point is famous for its high-octane nightlife, the Tiger Cave Temple offers visitors the chance to pay their respects to the Buddha, and the beautiful mangrove forest is the perfect place to spend some leisure time.
Krabi's seascape is famous for its steep limestone cliffs. In the ancient past, lava soared up from the sea, forming small isles of varied shapes. If you enjoy rock climbing, then you will love Krabi - it is one of the best spots for rock climbing in the world.
Snorkeling and scuba diving enthusiasts will be pleasantly surprised by the spectacular coral reefs and colorful array of fishes in Krabi's waters.
