On this luxury Thailand holiday, you will indulge in authentic Thai dishes, learn about Buddhism, explore historical temples and palaces before unwinding on palm-fringed beaches where you can swim in the crystal-clear waters of Phang Nga Bay. Your trip will be filled with countless moments for a holiday to remember – perfect for those visiting Thailand for the first time or looking to experience the classics.
Arriving into the vibrant capital city of Bangkok, you will toast the start of your tailor-made travel adventure in Thailand at the suspended Octave Sky Bar surrounded by the epic panorama of Bangkok’s skyline. Then, you’ll see all the sights from the Grand Palace to Wat Pho and the mysterious Emerald Buddha. There is no better place to experience a thrilling ride in a famous three-wheeled tuk-tuk, so we’ve arranged for you to dive into the electric nightlife and hidden bars of the Thonglor district, before feasting on mouth-watering street food. The next day you’ll try your hand at cooking classic Thai dishes at Issaya Cooking Studio, run by the internationally acclaimed chef Ian Kittichai and his team.
Next up, you’ll fly north to the historical city of Chiang Mai to uncover another side of Thailand. Here you’ll discover an exciting mix of colourful hill tribes, a flourishing art scene, and the famous night market. Glide through the old city on a segway tour, stopping at Chiang Mai landmarks such as Wat Phra Singh, Wat Chiang Man and Three Kings Gate. Your time in Chiang Mai will also see you take part in the Buddhist tradition of nightly chanting of prayer with monks, learn about local artists and their work with visits to selected galleries and a visit to the sacred pilgrimage spot Wat Phra That Doi Suthep.
To close your trip of a lifetime, you will end on the cashmere-soft sands of Khao Lak on Thailand’s Andaman Coast. You’ll be staying at The Sarojin, a blissful beach resort that doesn’t believe in rules. This is the part of your trip where the shackles truly come off, where pampered privacy exists among its ten acres of tropical gardens and it’s the living, breathing simple fantasy of long walks along the beach and bringing your own idea of the perfect day to life. It’s not just lounging on the beach, though. The resort is surrounded by pristine Thai landscapes that make for thrilling hikes through ancient rainforest and visits to rural fishing communities, while a private day cruise to Phang Nga Bay is the finest way to see its gasp-worthy limestone karsts.
Designed by renowned hotel architect Bill Bensley, The Siam is a match made in heaven between Thai traditions and the 1930s amour with art deco. Vintage gramophones and trunks live in harmony with wooden Buddha statues in a striking world of black-and-white decor. The Siam's good looks are backed up by its location, a whisker away from the capital's main heritage sights and on the banks of the Chao Phraya River, where the hotel's own boat can shuttle you to pretty much anywhere in the city.
A nineteenth-century teak residence that was built to be the headquarters of the Borneo Trading Company, 137 Pillars House oozes with colonial splendour. Vintage tuk-tuks stand guard at the entrance and sepia photographs remember the hotel's roots, while splashes of modernity mix with the historic glamour of each room. The vine-walled pool, avenue of birds-of-paradise and moated lobby create a cocoon of tranquillity – step outside and you'll hardly believe you're in the heart of Chiang Mai.
The Sarojin is the kind of place where there are no limits – just how a beach retreat should be. You can have breakfast whenever you like, walks along its diamond-white beach feel blissfully endless and the resort's in-house 'imagineer' can tailor your stay however you like. There's snorkelling trips aboard the Lady Sarojin, mangrove kayaking, elephant trekking, neighbouring temple visits and plenty more. Go on, let your imagination off the leash.
