Travel Itinerary


Arrival – Bangkok

Guests are greeted by our staff upon arrival at Suvarnabhumi Airport in Bangkok. The meeting point is located between exit number 3-4.

It’s unnecessary to think about your flight delays, as we will always be monitoring your flight arrival time.

After that, it will be our driver’s job to make sure that you arrive safely at your hotel in Bangkok.

Bangkok City Tour

Bangkok Join-in Excursions (English Speaking Tour Guide):

Our tour guide will pick you up from the lobby and take you to Wat Phra Kaew and the Grand Palace.

Wat Phra Kaew, situated within the Grand Palace’s compound, was constructed in the reign of King Rama I in 1782, to enshrine the Emerald Buddha, a sacred Buddha image which would protect people and the country. The temple is thus known in English as the Emerald Buddha temple.

The Middle Court of the Grand Palace can be entered after visiting Wat Phra Kaew. Here we catch a glimpse of the official residence and a former workplace of the King of Thailand. The present king no longer stays here but still frequently visits the palace, in order to perform many state functions and royal ceremonies, which are held within this part of the Grand Palace.

After that, we will transfer you to a large jewelry store in Bangkok: the Gems Gallery. And you will arrive back at your hotel around noon.

Ayutthaya Historical Park

Bangkok Join-in Excursions (English Speaking Tour Guide):

In the early morning, our tour guide will transfer you from Bangkok to the former capital of Thailand in Ayutthaya.

Our first destination is the Bang Pa-in Summer Palace, an impressive royal palace with many styles of architecture. The palace was first constructed in the late Ayutthaya period in the 17th century, and has been used to welcome great well-known leaders, including Tsar Nicholas II of Russia, during their state visits.

Then we tour the old kingdom of Ayutthaya, which we will pay homage to the sandstone Buddha head entangled in tree roots at Wat Mahathat, catch a glimpse of a giant bronze Buddha image at Wihan Phramongkhon Bophit, as well as explore the royal temple ruins within the ancient palace compound at Wat Phra Sri Sanphet.

In the afternoon, we head to a local pier in Nonthaburi, and board a river cruise from here to Bangkok. Enjoy lunch onboard the river cruise with the magnificent view of the Chao Phraya River. Arrive at your hotel around 4:30 pm.

Fly from Bangkok to Chiang Mai

Spend the morning in Bangkok before we transfer you to airport for your domestic flight to Chiang Mai.

Since Chiang Mai was founded in the late 13th century by King Mangrai, the city has always been the center of Lanna culture. It represents a perfect blend of modern society and old charm.

When your flight arrives in Chiang Mai, our driver will transfer you to hotel in Chiang Mai. The afternoon period is free at leisure.

Chiang Mai City Tour

Chiang Mai Join-in Tours (English Speaking Tour Guide):

Our tour guide will pick you up from the lobby in the morning for a visit to Wat Phra That Doi Suthep and Sankampaeng Handicraft Village.

Wat Phra That Doi Suthep, an old Buddhist temple built in the 14th century on top of Mount Suthep, is the most well known and important place in Chiang Mai. The temple is also situated right on the mountain cliff; thus it can be seen from almost anywhere, despite its 15 km distance from the city.

Sankampaeng Road is a home area to several Thai-Lanna handicraft communities. Our staff will introduce you the best-known products in this area, including Borsang’s traditional umbrellas, silverware, and high quality silk products.

After that, we will transfer you back to hotel.
