City & Beach with Koh Samui

Duration
11 Days
Prices From:
US$ 1,799

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 11-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.
