BANGKOK - PHUKET - KOH PHI PHI
July 9 -16 2020
Colorful tuk tuks, exotic smells, exotic islands, friendly locals and tasty spicy street food... It’s just the beginning! Amazing activities such as visiting preserved temples and Buddha statues, cooking your own authentic Thai dishes, taking care of elephants, partying in one of Thailand’s most lucrative islands are just few of the many impressive things you will do during this trip!
Sawatdee! Welcome to Thailand, the land of smiles! We will pick you up from the airport and take you to your comfortable hotel room in Bangkok, where you can settle in and relax. In the evening, there will be a welcome dinner with delicious food and drinks.
Start your day with a complete breakfast and get ready to see the cultural highlights of Bangkok. Today we visit the most important palace and temple complex, the Grand Palace and Wat Pho. After, we continue on the Chao Phraya river and disembark at Wat Arun.
Rise and shine! Today we leave early to visit the Damnoen Saduak floating market where you will get an idea of the real canal-side life and purchase the ingredients needed for our cooking class. Later this evening, we will be able to unleash your inner foodie by trying local authentic specialties at the street food stalls.
Thailand has so much to offer that that it wouldn’t be fair to only experience Bangkok. Today we fly south to the beautiful Island of Phuket where we will create many more lasting memories in our Villa for the days to come. We will turn all the way up that evening at our first of its kind adult pool party.
Did something say island hopping???? Yes!! After a wonderful breakfast we board out boat and cruise the ocean and head to the beautiful island of Phi Phi. Snorkeling, mesmerizing sunsets and another full night of turning up are the many things waiting for you on this sensational island.
Upon our return from Phi Phi island, we will spend our afternoon with some special creatures, can you take a guess? Elephants! We will visit an elephant sanctuary in Phuket where they are well taken care and learn more about these wonderful beings. Elephants embody an important part of Thai society and we will learn why while also having the opportunity to have close interactions with them through an exciting mud bath!
Today we visit the Big Buddha. Phuket's Big Buddha is one of the most important landmarks on the island. Later that afternoon, you will have the option to use it as you please or join us at the beach in Patong beach where we will spend the afternoon.
All good things must end. Today we return home, full of great stories and moments to remember. No worries, I’m sure we will see you back on another trip!
