What could be better; the tour includes a private guide service with accommodations in some of finest in Asia, including Four Seasons and Aman resorts.
UNLEASH YOUR MOJO: WORKING WITH THE ELEPHANTS IN THE GOLDEN TRIANGLE & RELAXING ON THE BEACHES IN THE SOUTH.
After a comprehensive tour of Bangkok, you will travel to the Golden Triangle and privately driven 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. You will have enough time at leisure to browse craft markets or enjoy the resort's spa, cooking school, golf, 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.
Continue to Siem Reap for a three-day exploration of Angkor—the ruins of the ancient Khmer empire. Stay at the exclusive Amansara, a peaceful and intimate luxury hotel and spa in the heart of Siem Reap. AwimAway Adventures will arrange for your own expert guide so you have the most educational and comfortable tour possible. Visit important ruins, such as Angkor Wat and Angkor Thom, and discover lesser known jungle-covered ruins that are just as awe inspiring.
