Escape to Thailand to a rejuvenating stay in Bangkok and Khao Lak. In Bangkok, learn to cook Thai cuisine at the Blue Elephant Cooking School and discover hidden temples and farms before heading to Khao Lak to spend four days relaxing in spas and snorkelling through coral reefs.
This 9-day Thai vacation takes you to Bangkok and Khao Lak to experience the best of the country and relax, rejuvenate, and refresh yourself. It includes first-class or deluxe accommodations depending on preference, international airfare, private tours, and is perfect for solo travellers and people wanting to refresh on a beach getaway.
Your Thailand Unplugged trip takes you across the Pacific Ocean to Bangkok, the capital of Thailand and the most-visited city on the planet. It won’t take long to notice Bangkok’s stunning contrasts. Massive skyscrapers sit beside wooden huts; luxury malls jostle for baht alongside bustling farmers’ markets—no one side of Bangkok is quintessential. It takes both the big and small, rich and modest, to capture what makes Bangkok so invigorating. On your first day in the city, head to the Blue Elephant Cooking School to learn to make delicious Thai dishes. The next day, head off the tourist trail on a bike tour across the city. Discover hidden temples, travel along the canal, and stop off at flower farms to learn about some of Thailand’s oldest traditions. Spend the rest of your time in Bangkok seeing the famous landmarks like Wat Arun, Wat Phra Kaew, and the Grand Palace, former home of the King of Thailand.
From Bangkok, connect to Khao Lak, a relaxing, tranquil paradise around one hour north of Phuket. Staying in a first-class or deluxe beach resort, you’ll have several days at leisure to enjoy this beachside paradise. Explore local villages or spend your days taking advantage of your resort’s spa. Kayak on the waters, snorkel through coral reefs, or refine your body and mind with yoga.
At the end of your journey, connect to the airport to head back home.

You will be guided by an experienced and knowledgeable instructor in a well-equipped classroom designed for training professional chefs.

The session ends with a delightful meal in which you will savour your own creations.
Full Day Bangkok Paradise Bike Tour
Discover the daily life of locals on this bicycle tour that will take you to an unseen part of Bangkok. A boat and cycling adventure decorated with orchid farms, banana, papaya and mango trees that brings you to places where it seems like time has been standing still. Besides this, you can see beautiful hidden temples. There is also an unrivaled long tail boat journey. Start by riding through a fresh market, where you'll see a variety of goods for sale from smoked pig heads to beautiful flowers. A little further on your way, you will stop at the remains of defense walls built during the Colonial Era to prevent Western countries occupying Thailand. You continue the route and stop at the "Golden Temple". From here the journey continues over concrete pathways, through a scenic park and passes orchid farms before bringing you to the pier where long tail boats are waiting. A spectacular canal trip brings you to the most southern district of Bangkok. Then, you visit a small factory where they produce incense-sticks used at traditional Thai temples and stop at a typical Thai/Chinese flower-farm. Throughout the day you will stop every hour to rest and hydrate. If you love cycling, and enjoy nature, this trip will leave you with some unforgettable memories of Bangkok
