UNLEASH YOUR MOJO: ON THIS 10-DAY PRIVATE NORTH THAILAND TOUR WITH A RELAXING STAY IN KOH SAMUI.
Begin with comprehensive touring in Bangkok. With your private guide explore Bangkok’s most unusual Buddhist temples, the Chedis of the Kings and the invaluable golden Buddha weighing over 5 tons. Enjoy a fascinating, private long-tail boat tour through Bangkok's canals, the colourful markets and shop for exquisite Thai silks and art work. In the evening dine aboard a luxurious rice barge on some of Southeast Asia’s best cuisine.
Continue to Chiang Mai where you will stay at one of Asia’s most luxurious and atmospheric resorts, surrounded by mountains and lush fields of terraced rice paddies. With your private guide explore the city of Chiang Mai, with a wealth of beautiful and historic Buddhist wats (temples) and the royal family’s Winter Palace. Later, browse craft markets or enjoy the resort's spa or pool.
Next fly to Koh Samui, Thailand’s self-styled ‘boutique island’ that boasts some of the best beaches in the region. Stay at one of Thailand's leading luxury resorts and indulge yourself at the spa, swimming, taking cooking classes or yoga lessons. Take a half-day yacht cruise to view the island’s attractions and explore a pristine world of beaches, reefs, rainforest and sunshine. Return to Bangkok for some last minute shopping or touring before departing Thailand.
Max your Awim Khum Lanna cooking class. Kum Lunna is a large beautiful teak wood house in the rural heart of Northern Thailand, surrounded by emerald green rice fields and tropical orchards with an exotic and charming ambience. The local chefs here will share their years of experience to prepare some of the most loved and best-known Thai dishes. Learn how to cook authentic tasting Thai food and deserts. Later take a short cycling tour.
Thailand has four international airports; in Bangkok, Chiang Mai, Phuket and Hat Yai, but Bangkok's Suvarnabhumi airport is the country's major gateway. Practically every airline carrier that flies to Asia also flies into Bangkok. This means there are plenty of services and the competition on the routes helps to keep the ticket prices down.
There are now a throng of low-cost-carriers serving Southeast Asia, led by KL-based AirAsia. It can be cost effective to fly from your home country to Bangkok, Singapore or KL with a traditional carrier, then pick up a LCC flight to your final destination. If you are travelling with AwimAway, transfers from an airport are arranged by our representatives who will meet you at the arrival lounge and transfer you to the hotel.
