Bangkok, Chiang Mai & Koh Samui
A tropical 13-night city-to-beach getaway split between Bangkok, Chiang Mai and Koh Samui, with breakfast, travel and perks
Woven into the Indochina Peninsula in a tapestry of ancient monuments, gleaming skyscrapers, impossibly beautiful beaches and colourful street-food stands, Thailand has something to offer even the most jaded of travellers. This 13-night holiday takes you to three of the country’s most awe-inspiring destinations in a sweep of city and golden shore.
You’ll start your journey with three nights at the five-star Dusit Thani Bangkok, where you’ll have plenty time to explore the city. Drift from temple to glorious temple, from the opulent Grand Palace to Wat Arun on the riverside. Other must-sees here include seeing the Golden Buddha before taking on the city’s pulsating nightlife scene and indulging in local delicacies at night markets.
You’ll then travel to Thailand’s captivating cultural capital for three nights, staying at Tamarind Village, which is set in an old tamarind orchard in the heart of the historic city. You can enjoy the best of both worlds here, as you’re located within walking distance of the restaurants and famous night markets, as well as the awesome, ancient temples.
Last but by no means least, it’s onto the beautiful Koh Samui for a seven-night stint of uninterrupted rest and relaxation at Poppies Samui – a tranquil collection of cottages luxuriously kitted out with every comfort. Here you’ll swap the sound of noisy silk markets for the softly lapping water of the warm Andaman Sea. With accommodation in a feng-shui inspired cottage, you’ll be just steps from the resort’s pool and the renowned white sands of Chaweng Beach.
