The renowned quality of what Thailand can bring to the tourism table requires no further introduction. From north to south, the travel options are next to unlimited and a plethora of religious, natural and historical landmarks pass the revue with every turn you take. A well-balanced 6 days Thailand exploration from Bangkok is all what one needs to lift the veil of Amazing Thailand.
Your journey of Thailand exploration commences with an early departure from your Bangkok hotel. Via the former capital of the Siam Kingdom, Ayutthaya, and Lopburi, we make our way northwards towards our overnight address in Phitsanuloke. Heritage from a bygone era in the form of the Bang Pa In Summer Palace and the Khmer inspired Phra Prang sam yot are among the highlights on this day.
Filled with impressions after day one, Sukhothai Historical Park follows in the footsteps of visiting former kingdoms of ancient Siam. Its temple ruins are among the most sought-after for visits. A visit to the satellite town of Sri Satchanalai completes our morning program before making a much needed lunch break. With our overnight address in Lampang further up north, we include touring this old town before dining at the hotels restaurant.
Making merit is filed with austerity and symbolism: a visit to Thailand is not complete in following in the early morning trails of local residents paying respect to saffron clad monks. A long day brings you via Phayao to Chiang Rai, our overnight address. The gateway to the famous Golden Triangle will be extensively explored throughout the afternoon with visits to Chiang Saen, Mae Sai and the actual Golden Triangle as essential bucket list material.
Wat Rong Kung has to be the main attraction of Chiang Rai city; its story and white exterior stand out from the temple crowd in Thailand and mark the start of a new day. Afterwards, we slowly make our way south towards the Rose of the North Chiang Mai. Seeing the handicraft masters at work and enjoying a traditional Kantoke dinner in Thailands second largest city marks the end of an amazing day out and about.Chiang Mai has ample to offer to fill in a day. Were making our way into a sustainable centre that turns animal faeces into day-to-day household goods, a royal museum and ending the day with mesmerizing views from Doi Suthep Mountain temple. In the evening, we head over to the train station for an overnight train experience back to Bangkok, followed by an early morning transfer back to your hotel.
