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.
