Arrive in Bangkok, a unique city that combines the ancient and the modern, to begin your Thailand luxury travel adventure. With towering skyscrapers pressed up against traditional shop-houses and brand-new luxury cars squeezing past vendors with pushcarts, this is a city of sharp contrasts. Ancient temples, markets, and incredible nightlife are a mere tuk-tuk ride away. Embark on a walking and street food exploration of the historical Old Bangkok neighborhood villages. You’ll also visit the famous floating and railway markets for a glimpse into the charming cacophony of this fast, frenetic, and eclectic city.
Journey next to Chiang Rai and the Four Seasons Golden Triangle. Amidst exotic bamboo jungles, the luxurious tented camp echoes the romantic spirit of the 19th-century explorers. Spend three full days enjoying activities in the region. Take longtail boat cruises along the Mekong River and enjoy interactions with the many local hill tribes.
A hilly drive, with several scenic stops en-route, ends in Chiang Mai and the famous Four Seasons Resort, the final haven on your Thailand luxury travel tour. The breathtaking Mae Rim Valley sets an idyllic scene with a design that delivers an authentic Siamese up-country atmosphere. Note the cultural and culinary diversity as you travel north. Participate in a Thai cooking class and bike through the communities and great outdoors along the Ping River.
On your final full day in Thailand, return back to Bangkok. An exploration of the ancient Siamese capital of Ayutthaya is the perfect finale to your stay in northern Thailand.
