Itinerary Description:

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. At the Mandarin Oriental, you are staying in a piece of history - a hotel renowned for its sheer extravagance and prestige as the choice of royalty, presidents and celebrities. 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, and 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, including longtail boat cruises along the Mekong River, and interactions with the hill tribes of northern Thailand.

A hilly drive, with various stops en-route, ends in Chiang Mai and the famous Four Seasons Resort, the final haven on your tour. Spacious private Lanna-style raised pavilions overlook terraced rice fields and the mountains in the breathtaking Mae Rim Valley, an idyllic setting with a design that delivers an authentic Siamese up-country atmosphere. Note the cultural and culinary diversity as you travel north by participating in a Thai cooking class and cycling through the communities and great outdoors along the Ping River.

Return back to Bangkok for an exploration of the ancient Siamese capital of Ayutthaya - the perfect finale to your stay in northern Thailand.
