Trip reference number: DiscoverThailand
Trip Operator: Abercrombie & Kent
Arrive in Bangkok ready to explore its many temples. The hotel's rooftop bar offers the best views of Wat Arun, which is possibly even more spectacular by night. During your time in Bangkok you'll enjoy a sunset cycling tour, which is an ideal time to see the city when the temperatures on cooler, meander around a local food market with a foodie guide and take a rice barge along the Chao Phraya river. You'll enjoy an overnight cruise to Ayutthaya, a UNESCO World Heritage site containing over 12 ancient temple sites, which was founded in 1305. The next day you'll arrive at Koh Kret, an island village and one of the country's oldest Mon settlements. Koh Kret operates at a much slower pace of life and, after a few days in buzzing Bangkok, visitors find it a welcome retreat. Be sure to purchase some local pottery before you hop back on the boat. The next stop on the tour is Chiang Mai, a fantastic place to recharge your batteries and what better way to start than meeting the hill tribe in Akha village to learn about their way of life. A cycling tour through the villages is the perfect way to take it all in. Historic and spiritually significant sites to visit whilst you're here include Wat Phra That Doi Suthep and Wat Chedi Luang. Whilst you're here you'll get the opportunity to visit a local A&K Philanthropy project, The Chiang Mai Msuhroom House has enhanced the lives of local women by offering them a chance to learn mushroom farming and earn income for their families. From Chiang Mai you'll spend your last few days soaking up the sun on Phuket's beautiful beaches, the perfect place to relax, unwind and reflect on your time in Thailand.
