With so much to do here in Thailand, there is something for everyone, and a few of the Highlights, as well as some of our own special experiences, that you should not miss include:

 


BANGKOK
Bangkok is the capital of Thailand and, with a population of over eleven million inhabitants, by far its largest city. It is one of Asia's most cosmopolitan cities with magnificent temples and palaces, authentic canals, busy markets and a vibrant nightlife that has something for everyone.

The Grand Palace and Temple of the Emerald Buddha is a "must-see" when visiting Bangkok, undoubtedly the city's most famous landmark. Built in 1782 and for 150 years the home of the Thai King, the Royal court and the administrative seat of government. Today, the complex remains the spiritual heart of the Thai Kingdom.

Within the palace complex are several impressive buildings including Wat Phra Kaew (Temple of the Emerald Buddha), which contains the small, very famous and greatly revered Emerald Buddha that dates back to the 14th century. Combining this with a Private Boat Trip around the waterways of the City would make this an unforgettable experience.

 

 

Damnoen Saduak Floating Market. There are countless markets throughout the country but by far, one of the the most famous, unusual & impressive is the Floating Market of the Damnoen Saduak Community, a couple of hours drive southwest of Bangkok.

The Floating Market is routinely crowded with hundreds of vendors and purchasers floating in their small rowing boats selling and buying or exchanging their goods. Many products are food, fruit and vegetable which are mostly brought from their own orchards. A trip out to Damnoen Saduak Floating Market is probably the most commented on encounter by our Clients, by witnessing the local way of life first hand.


CHIANGMAI
Chiangmai is the largest and most culturally significant city in Northern Thailand. Frequently known as the Capital of the Ancient Lanna Kingdom, Chiangmai is situated on the banks of Ping River, bordered by the highest mountains in Thailand and surrounded by lush green countryside. The City, which sits at an elevation of just over 300 meters and around 700 km north of Bangkok, is considered to be one of the best destinations in Asia (Voted by Travel + Leisure as the one of the World's Best Cities - Number 2 in 2010)

While Chiangmai's 300 temples and the Old City Centre's moated & walled boundaries gives a beautiful, traditional feel to this religious and cultural Northern Capital, Chiangmai is also a dynamic and modern city, (although substantially smaller and quieter than Bangkok !), which has successfully managed to combine its rich history and traditions with its increasingly modern side.

 

 

Merit Making. The Thai People believe that Making Merit is a means of doing good things as part of their Buddhist religious principles. The concept (as in an old Thai proverb) "if you do good you - will receive good; if you do evil - you will receive evil", is the result of Karma which represents the evaluation of all life events, that is, you will receive the outcome of what you have already initiated.

This Special Early Morning Program has been specifically designed to give you a unique experience of Thai cultures, by taking part in this simple ceremony, with the amazing sight of hundreds of Saffron Robed Monks walking out of the Temple, and also an opportunity to visit to Wat Phra That Doi Suthep, the most venerated Temple in Chiangmai, before all the crowds arrive.

A Visit to Northern Thailand would not be complete without checking out the Elephants, whether at one of the more popular Elephant Camps or maybe our Private Elephant Life Experience. This is a Unique, "Hands On" Elephant involvement Program, where you will have the special opportunity to build closeness to an individual elephant. Not being part of a large crowd will enable the visitor to experience on a one-to-one basis, elephant life together. This will build a rapport with the elephant in their natural environment far removed from the usual organized tours of Elephant camps.

During your visit, you will be able to observe and if you wish, to participate with the elephant's bathing in their natural setting. You will be given knowledge the mahout (the Elephant keeper) has in training, to observe the techniques in controlling the elephant and to try out your skills yourselves. You will be free to take a ride on the elephant and enjoy personalized rafting. We genuinely believe that you will be captivated by the elephant's painstaking skill as a painter, observed as the picture unravels! - and be offered a complementary elephant painting to take as a lasting gift of the unique experience.


Full Day Active Programs.
Apart from rich cultural attractions, Chiangmai is now also a center for some many outdoor active activities. A full active adventure day that we can arrange for you could include an exciting Zip-line across the River (approx. 400 meters), a scenic Biking Ride up the hills and finish off with a "White-water" Rafting trip.

Or a great Day out in the Sri Lanna National Park that includes, Biking through the countryside and Kayaking on a lake.

We also have One Day Hikes, with various Hiking Trails in the beautiful Doi Pui National Park - Hiking time and routing is variable between 1-5 hours, depending on your abilities.

 
 
 
 


GOLDEN TRIANGLE (Northern Thailand)

The Unique location of the Golden Triangle, on Thailand’s Northern most borders with Laos & Burma at the confluence of the Mekhong and Ruak Rivers gives this region it’s own special cultural attractions and interests. With outstanding Mountain backdrops and home to many of the Ethnic Hill Tribe Villages.

Some of the highlights here include the very special Hall of Opium, Doi Tung Mountain & the Royal Villa, Mae Sai (Northern most town in Thailand) on the myanmar Border, and Ruins & Temples of Chiangsaen.
