Tour Itinerary Close
  • Day 1 Bangkok The heat and hustle of Thailand's capital will hit you the moment you land, with 9 glorious days of adventure stretched out ahead of us. After checking into our hotel you're free to do some DIY exploring, treat your muscles to a soothing massage or just lie by the pool soaking up the first rays of that sweet Thai sunshine. Later we'll rendezvous as a group so you can hear what's in store for the trip, then the night is yours to take to the streets for some authentic pad Thai and nightlife on Khao San road. Locations Visited: Bangkok TH.
  • Day 2 Bangkok With so much to see there's no time to waste, so we'll jump right into it this morning. After a quick breakfast, we set out on a locally guided visit to Wat Arun, also known as the Temple of Dawn, before catching a local ferry to make our journey to visit the Grand Palace. Finally we'll finish up our morning with a tour of the Klongs (canals), watching locals go about their day living life along the river. This afternoon you're free to head to a local rooftop bar to toast the beginning of your trip with your new Contiki fam. Have one for us! Locations Visited: Bangkok TH.
  • Day 3 Bangkok to Kanchanaburi Bangkok you've been a dream, but we're ready to rock and roll on. This morning we're swapping the big city for the sleepy town of Kanchanaburi.Here it's about living local. We'll start with visiting iconic historic sites including the WWII Cemetery, for a glimpse at darker past times, and the famed Bridge on the River Kwai. Since we all know there's nothing quite like local transport to make you feel really alive, this afternoon we'll pop into a boat along the River Kwai where we'll reach our home for the night: The Floating Jungle Raft Hotel. This place is every bit the dream Thailand location you've imagined, so you may have to pinch yourself as you're greeted with rooms lit by candlelight, followed by a delicious local dinner at dusk. If you're game, which of course you are, you can even jump into the river directly from your room. #Travelgoals, check! Locations Visited: Bangkok TH, Kanchanaburi TH.
  • Day 4 Kanchanaburi to Chiang Mai via Ayutthaya - Overnight Train We’ll start our day with a visit to the breathtaking Erawan Falls, one of the most famous National Parks of Thailand, made up from seven levels of incredible waterfalls. Take a quick dip in the emerald-hued ponds, dive into the clear waters & get an unreal FOMO Insta shot before we head off to our next stop Ayutthaya.We’ll make a stop in the UNESCO listed city of Ayutthaya, once the capital of the Kingdom of Siam before being destroyed by the Burmese in the 18th Century. Here we’ll grab bikes & cycle past ornate temples, towering spires, and quaint villages. Tonight, we forgo a hotel to board our overnight sleeper train to Chiang Mai. Locations Visited: Kanchanaburi TH, Overnight Train to Chiang Mai TH.
  • Day 5 Chiang Mai to Pai We'll pull into Thailand's northern capital of Chiang Mai bright and early, but we're going to keep this adventure going as we roll on into Pai this morning.Prepare to fall in love with this picturesque mountain town. The rest of the day is yours to explore this traveller's paradise your way. Head out on foot or by bike, and adventure down Pai's little streets that pack some punch. Be sure to head out to experience Pai by night - an experience to rival that of its big sister Khao San Road in Bangkok. Locations Visited: Overnight Train to Chiang Mai TH, Pai TH.
  • Day 6 Pai With another full day in this charming town, be sure to have a strong shot of Thai espresso from one of the local cafes to get up and get going again. Just try to save some juice in the tank for an optional afternoon Muay Thai skills class with an expert, before we head out for our final night in Pai. Locations Visited: Pai TH.
  • Day 7 Pai to Chiang Mai This morning we're Chiang Mai bound, but we're treating ourselves on the way with a visit to the Elephant Nature Park. This Park is an elephant rescue and rehabilitation centre that not only provides a sanctuary for the elephants, but gives us the once in a lifetime chance to get up close to these gentle giants. You'll have a chance to feed the elephants and watch them splash around on the river bank.Tonight, there's a chance for you to spend the evening zipping around on a Vespa as we explore the small streets and alleyways of Chiang Mai. We’ll see some iconic street art and monuments in between food stops at family restaurants and street vendors. Taste the amazing flavours of Tom Kha Gai and BBQ skewers before topping it all off with some live music in the market district. Just ask your Trip Manager for the best tips on where to head and what to do. Locations Visited: Pai TH, Chiang Mai TH.
  • Day 8 Chiang Mai Today is yours to make the most of the laid-back city of Chiang Mai. Maybe head out into the city's heart on foot and explore the old town, or treat yourself to a traditional Thai massage. Later this evening, you have the chance to dabble in the art of authentic Thai cooking so you can wow everyone back home with a mean Pad Thai. Locations Visited: Chiang Mai TH.
  • Day 9 End Chiang Mai This morning we say fond farewells before going our separate ways. Dry those tears, because no doubt we'll make big plans to reunite somewhere special soon. Want to see more of Thailand? Check out Total Thailand for the full trip Locations Visited: Chiang Mai TH.
