Bangkok & Beach Escape with Koh Samui

Duration
9 Days
Prices:
On request

FIRST-CLASS | TAILOR-MADE: Escape to the city and the beach on this Thailand vacation. As you explore the bustling capital of Bangkok and the exclusive resort island of Koh Samui, you’ll visit the floating market of Damnoen Saduak, enjoy delicious food in the streets of Chinatown, and lounge on the world-famous beaches of Thailand’s south.


This 9-day Thailand vacation takes you from Bangkok to the beaches of Koh Samui.

Your Thailand vacation begins in Bangkok, the capital of Thailand and the most-visited city on the planet. Upon immediate arrival, you’ll realize that Bangkok is a city of contrasts. Massive skyscrapers sit beside wooden huts. Luxury malls jostle for baht alongside bustling farmers’ markets. No one side of Bangkok is all-defining; it takes both to capture what makes this city so invigorating. Make sure to see the landmarks like Wat Pho and the Grand Palace, and ride the Skytrain if you need to get around the city in style. During your Bangkok tour, you’ll also head on an excursion to the Damnoen Sanduak Floating Market, where you’ll see dozens of vendors on boats selling fruits and vegetables, and take a foodie tour through Chinatown (Yaowarat) to enjoy the best of Bangkok’s incredible street food scene.

From Bangkok, continue your Thailand vacation to Koh Samui, a gorgeous island on the east coast where Hollywood celebrities vacation after winning Oscars. With its manicured lanes, long beaches, incredible food scene, and seemingly-infinite number of spas, Koh Samui certainly fits the bill for a pampering vacation. It’s the ideal place to treat yourself, whether that means rejuvenating with Thai massages and wellness treatments or taking advantage of the warm temperatures to lounge on the beach and enjoy a cocktail. If you get a little stir-crazy in the midst of your beach idylls, you can visit nearby coconut plantations or fishing villages. If you head south, you’ll even reach dusty villages settled by Chinese merchants in centuries past.

If you want to combine the culture and bustle of the city with the pampering comfort of the beach, this is the Thailand vacation for you.

Day 2

Morning Damnoen Saduak Floating Market and Maeklong Railway Market

This morning, travel away from Bangkok's city centre for a visit to local markets and countryside neighbourhoods. Take a one-hour drive, leaving the high-rises behind and entering a land of lush landscapes and traditional wooden houses.

Stop at a local railway station where a bustling country market has sprouted up along the tracks. As a train pulls into the station, witness the vendors quickly clearing their stalls off the railway. Then, after the train departs, watch them set up shop and resume business as usual.

From here, continue to the famous Damnoen Saduak Floating Market. Although these days the stalls are mostly selling items for tourists, this market remains the best example of a traditional floating market. Take a stroll around and admire the floating shops, many of which are selling fresh fruits and typical Thai snacks.

Leave the main market area and take a relaxing paddle boat ride. Pass by an old section of the floating market and enter a labyrinth of quiet canals. See houses built alongside the waterways and catch glimpses of local life in this rural Thai province.

Following your tour, you'll be returned to your hotel in Bangkok.

Day 3

Evening Street Food Delights by Tuk Tuk

This evening, you will be met at your hotel by your guide who will travel with you on public transport to the meeting point near Hua Lumphong Station for 5:30pm. Here, you'll bet met and greeted by your local food guide who will offer a short briefing before this fun evening excursion commences.

From here, hop on Bangkok's iconic 3-wheel tuk tuk to begin your night adventure to visit the best local eateries in town. Bangkok is claimed to be the city that never stops eating and locals usually find themselves eating out at night, especially street food, which the city is so well-known for.

Enjoy the ride and make various stops at local places in which the smells will ignite ones taste buds. From the local favourite Northern Thai-Isan Food, the best kept-secret Guay Tiew Gai guaranteed with a Michelin star for 2 consecutive years, and one of the best Pad Thais in town; popular with both locals and foreigners alike.

In between your tasty samplings, visit Wat Pho, an iconic sight of Bangkok for a night time perspective and be wowed by its illuminated chedis while learning all about the history of the temple. Walk through the city's largest flower market, Pak Klong Talad, which is busy 24-hours a day with wholesale vendors and local shoppers. Explore the stalls where orchids, other flowers, vegetables and other items spill over the crowded stalls. Here, there is a chance to taste some local snacks or fruits.

The night ends with a final stop outside a secret, hidden bar located by the river. Sip on a chilled Thai beer or a non-alcoholic drink while enjoying amazing night views of the Chao Phraya River along with the glittering Temple of Dawn.

After the tour finishes, you'll be transferred back to your hotel by tuk tuk.
