    Itinerary

    Day 1 : International outbound flight

    Today you begin your journey by boarding your international outbound flight to Bangkok.

    Day 2 : Bangkok

    Upon arrival in Bangkok you will be met for a private transfer to your hotel. We've suggested an option featuring one of Bangkok's Michelin starred restaurants.

    Day 3 : Bangkok

    Embark on a private guided tour of Bangkok visiting the key attractions such as the Grand Palace and Wat Po (home to the reclining Buddha). Try out Bangkok's different forms of public transport â the Skytrain which winds its way through the skyscrapers and shopping malls, the public taxi boat, a long-tail boat, and of course the ubiquitous Thai tuk-tuk. Finish up around lunch, be sure to ask your guide for a local recommendation.

    Day 4 : Bangkok

    Today you'll have the opportunity to explore Bangkok's delicious street food with the aid of a local guide. As you try the different dishes you'll be taught key phrases for ordering on your own as you continue your journey through Thailand.

    Day 5 : Bangkok

    Explore Bangkok on your own this morning. Perhaps stop at another of Bangkok's Michelin starred restaurants for lunch. This evening enjoy an exclusive 'Chef's Table' dining experience. Your guide will transfer you to a luxury hotel in Bangkok where your multi-course tasting menu will be prepared in front of you by the hotel's chef.

    Day 6 : Amphawa

    Journey to Amphawa today to see Tha Kha floating market and get a sense of how local people purchase their food. You'll also have the chance to see the railroad market, where the stalls retreat daily at the approach of the train before expanding again to cover the tracks.

    Day 7 : Chiang Mai

    Your guide will drive you back to Bangkok today for the flight to Chiang Mai. On arrival you will be met and transferred to your hotel to relax for the afternoon. This evening with your guide visit a local temple to witness the rituals of the monks. You will then be able to enjoy a delicious Thai meal at a local boutique hotel before visiting a local market. Sample a Thai dessert as a sweet ending to your evening.

    Day 8 : Chiang Mai

    Spend today exploring Chiang Mai at your leisure. Be sure to try Khao soi noodles or Chiang Mai pork sausage, both local specialties.

    Day 9 : Chiang Mai

    This morning you will be picked up in a classic vehicle and transferred to your cooking class outside the city. Your teacher, Yui, is a well known chef within Thailand who will teach you traditional Thai dishes for you to prepare at home after your adventure.

    Day 10 : Chiang Rai

    Transfer today from Chiang Mai to Chiang Rai and your riverside hotel. Spend the afternoon and evening relaxing or exploring the night market.

    Day 11 : Chiang Rai

    This morning transfer by 4x4 to one of the hill tribe villages that the area is known for. You'll be able to learn a bit about, and try your hand at, coffee farming as well as visit a local Akha village. This tour gives insight into coffee and produce cultivation in Thailand.

    Day 12 : Phuket

    Private transfer to Chiang Rai Airport for your flight to Phuket, via Bangkok. On arrival your guide will meet you for the transfer to your beach hotel. We've recommended a hotel boasting a wide variety of dining options.

    Day 13 : Phuket

    Relax on the beach today, be sure to try some of the region's fresh seafood.

    Day 14 : Phuket

    Meet your guide for a tour of Phuket's street food today. The cuisine is distinct from Bangkok's as it's been influenced by Chinese, Malay, and Singaporean merchants as well as featuring fresh seafood.

    Day 15 : Phuket

    Enjoy your final day in Thailand relaxing or exploring some of the nearby islands.

    Day 16 : International return flight

    Private transfer to the airport for your international flights home. Your return flight will arrive the same day.

    We have travelled a great deal with Audley - and never been disappointed, or let down by their incredibly professional staff. In the last few days we were speaking to one of their highly professional team of advisors about changing our holiday plans for this year. I was incredibly impressed by the service that we received, and their unwavering focus on the customer - despite the workload and the uncertainty that they’re working under at the moment. You can't ask more of a travel company than that.

    Willa Stockwell has been absolutely phenomenal in helping us design our honeymoon to South Africa next year. After our wedding had to be postponed because of COVID, we reached out to Willa to inquire about the process for adjusting our honeymoon and, with nearly zero stress or concerns, Willa promptly made the necessary arrangements for us. We had been planning our honeymoon with Willa for many months, and her response was consistent with her and Audley's obvious commitment to customer service that we had experienced up until that point. With our honeymoon now planned for 2021, we can enjoy an extra year of engagement knowing that our dream trip is taken care of and feel so grateful that we booked through Audley!
