City & Beach with Phuket

Duration
11 Days
Prices From:
US$ 2,649

Get the best of both worlds on this city and beach getaway. On this Thailand vacation, you’ll explore the cultural highlights of Bangkok before heading to Phuket to soak up the beach atmosphere and enjoy the warm waters of the Andaman.


This 11-day Thailand vacation combines the bustle of Bangkok with the charming beachside idylls of Phuket.

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. In the evening, you’ll zip through the streets of Bangkok on a tuk tuk, experiencing the city in the most authentic way imaginable. On your night journey, you’ll stop off at the night markets to see local vendors sell food and flowers and have a chance to buy some for yourself.

From Bangkok, continue your Thailand vacation by zipping down to Phuket, the popular beach resort on the Andaman Sea. With its white-sand beaches, lush mountains, and magnificent coves, it’s no wonder that Phuket is one of the world’s most famous beach getaways. Staying in one of the pampering resorts on the island, you’ll have multiple days to enjoy the gorgeous climate and lazy atmosphere. Swim in the warm waters of the Andaman or take a guided walk to spot animals and fascinating plants in the nearby wilderness. Relax with a good book on the beach or engage in some wellness detox at the many health spas in the area. Or take a deep-dive into Thai culture with a cooking class or by learning Thailand’s traditional martial art, Muay Thai.

This Thailand vacation combines the bustle of the big city with the relaxing tempo of the beach. It’s a great way to engage with two essential parts of Thai culture.
