Trip Itinerary


  • Day 1-2

    Depart London to Bangkok, arriving the next day. Transfer to your hotel. Your adventure begins with a welcome meeting at 6pm.

  • Day 3

    Today you will travel by long tail boat down the Chao Phraya River and explore the famous 'khlongs' of Bangkok. After, pay a visit to Wat Pho. Then, you and the family will take a local bus to Kanchanaburi, home to the infamous 'Bridge on the River Kwai'. (B)

  • Day 4

    Travel to Erawan National Park in the morning. This national park boasts the incredible Erawan Falls. Keep your eyes peeled for eagles, pheasants or leafbirds. There’s the possibility of a kayaking adventure down the River Kwai back towards town. If kayaking isn't your thing, there are Buddhist temples to explore. (B)

  • Day 5

    Transfer by minibus to the nearby city of Ayuthaya. Take a guided tour of the picturesque ruins and temples spread across the town. The ruins at Wat Phra Mahathat provide many photo opportunities. Afterwards, board an overnight train to Chiang Mai. (B)

  • Day 6

    Wake up in Chiang Mai. Drive along a winding mountain road that ends at a 300-step naga-guarded stairway. The rewards will justify the climb, as one of Thailand's most stunning temples reveals itself. This is Doi Suthep. You'll also visit a traditional umbrella factory. (B)

  • Day 7

    Set off early to Elephant Nature Park. Learn about the problems these creatures face in South East Asia. You'll have the chance to see them from the viewing platform where you can give them their morning tea! Head off in the afternoon to the village of Ban Hua Tung where you stay tonight. (BLD)

  • Day 8

    Head into the forest at the base of Chiang Dao Mountain. Local guides will show you around the forest. The biodiversity of the forest is protected by a sacred 'forest ordination' by Buddhist monks whereby trees are ordained as monks – the people nurture the forest, and the forest nurtures the people in return. Return to Chiang Mai and enjoy free time. (B)

  • Day 9

    Today is free for you to explore Chiang Mai before your 4 pm overnight train journey. (B)

  • Day 10

    Take a minivan south to the beach town of Hua Hin. Spend your free time here exploring and swimming in the numerous white sandy beaches by day and indulging in amazing food by night. This beautiful coastal spot is located right by a sophisticated city that has everything you need. (B)

  • Day 11

    Today is free to spend as you please. A bicycle tour is always an excellent choice for the family. The day market, Chatchai, is well worth a visit, boasting fresh fruit, delicious donuts and traditional sweetened coffee. The real hit, however, is the night market, and your leader will be on hand to take you there if you wish. (B)

  • Day 12

    Return by minivan to Bangkok and enjoy an afternoon of free time. The shopping is excellent in Bangkok, and the malls sometimes feel like their own kind of theme park. (B)

  • Day 13

    There are no activities planned for the final day. Transfer to the airport for your flight home. (B)
