Itinerary

Day 1 Bangkok
Loud, bright, chaotic and delightful, Bangkok is a city of modern excesses intermingled with simple traditions, all wrapped up in the famous smiles of the locals.
Days 2-4 Kanchanaburi/River Kwai
Famed as the location of the Bridge on the River Kwai, Kanchanaburi is a beautiful town surrounded by verdant jungle, waterfalls and rivers.
Day 5 Ayuthaya
Once a glorious city with golden palaces and grand buildings, Ayuthaya was destroyed by the Burmese and is now a typical Thai town with impressive ruins.
Days 6-7 Chiang Mai
Awash with stunning temples, fabulous markets and a lively city centre, charming Chiang Mai is rich in culture and the gateway to the northern hilltribes.
Day 8 Doi Mae Salong
A relatively new village and part of Thailand's infamous 'Golden Triangle' area, Doi Mae Salong is a land of tea plantations, hilltribe villages and cherry blossoms.
Day 9 Homestay
An experience like no other, spend the night with a welcoming Thai family, learning about their lives and traditions before sharing a delicious dinner.
Days 10-11 Hilltribe Trek
Meet the hilltribes of Northern Thailand while walking through lush, verdant jungle, enjoying the hospitality, cuisine and friendliness of the people who call this area of Thailand home.
Day 12 Chiang Rai
The charming city of Chiang Rai still has a small-town feel and is a lovely place to explore with a colourful night market and downtown area.
Day 13 Chiang Mai
Chiang Mai means 'new city', even though it was founded in 1296! It's a favourite among travellers due to its relaxed feel and cultural richness.
Days 14-16 Bangkok
Bangkok is more than just colourful city streets, khlongs (canals) weave their way through suburbs, forest parks green up the city and Buddhist temples help bring serenity.
Days 17-18 Ao Nang/Krabi
A lively beachside town in Krabi Province, Ao Nang has a main street with restaurants, shops and bars, and is close to many idyllic islands.
Days 19-20 Ko Yao Noi
With few tourists and simple infrastructure, Ko Yao Noi is a beautiful, relatively untouched island with gorgeous beaches, great local food and a peaceful atmosphere.
Days 21-23 Phuket
Thailand's largest and most well-known island, Phuket has some excellent beaches and a huge array of restaurants, hotels, bars and shopping to choose from.
