Escape to Thailand for a rejuvenating stay in Bangkok and Phuket. In Bangkok, learn to cook Thai cuisine at the Blue Elephant Cooking School and discover hidden temples and farms before heading to Phuket to spend three days relaxing in spas and snorkelling through the clear waters.
This 9-day Thai vacation takes you to Bangkok and Phuket 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 or anyone seeking wellness on a beach escape.
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, fly south to fabulous Phuket, the famous island paradise on the Andaman Sea. Staying at a first-class or deluxe resort on the island, you’ll enjoy comfortable accommodations and have three full days at leisure to enjoy the famous tropical atmosphere. Spend your time rejuvenating in the spa with massages and wellness treatments, or engage with the local culture by learning Muay Thai, the nation’s traditional martial art. Tour nearby James Bond Island or head to ancient temples to get in touch with the country’s traditions. Snorkel through the clear waters, enjoy the famous white-sand beaches, and explore the lush mountains.
At the end of your stay, connect to the airport and fly back home.

Besides this, you can see beautiful hidden temples. There is also an unrivaled long tail boat journey.

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.
