Thailand: Best Bits Itinerary

  • Day 1 : Depart UK and fly overnight to Bangkok.
  • Day 2 : Arrive in Bangkok.
  • Day 3 : Bangkok – spend the day exploring this vibrant city. Visit the Grand Palace for the epitome of Thai culture, browse markets and sample plenty of the delicious street food.
  • Day 4 : Travel to Kanchanaburi, a one hour 45 minute trip by road or around three hours 30 minutes by train. On arrival you could walk the trail of the Hellfire Pass memorial and visit the emotive museum and see the infamous bridge over the River Kwai.
  • Day 5 : Kanchanaburi – use today to board the old locomotive that still runs the tracks of the ‘Death Railway’ and reflect at the Allied War Cemetery. Alternatively, you could visit one of the province’s beautiful national parks. Travel to Ayutthaya, two hours by road.
  • Day 6 : Ayutthaya – spend the day exploring this impressive archaeological site by tuk tuk, bicycle or on foot. Board an overnight train to Chiang Mai.
  • Day 7 : Chiang Mai – spend the day exploring the city. We would recommend ascending Doi Suthep Mountain for gorgeous views.
  • Days 8-9 : Chiang Mai – use these additional two days to travel or trek up into the hills surrounding the city to spend the night with one of the ethnic minority tribes that call the area home.
  • Day 10 : Chiang Mai – consider a visit to the Elephant Nature Park or spend the day in Chiang Mai taking a cooking class or visiting a local orphanage.
  • Day 11 : Travel to Koh Lanta, a two hour flight.
  • Days 12-14 : Koh Lanta – stroll the empty beaches and explore the waters of the Mu Koh Lanta Marine National Park.
  • Day 15 : Fly Koh Lanta to UK.
