Check-in

Round trip flights are not included in the package, so you can choose from where and when you want to fly. This is to give you maximum freedom of choice!

Ready to start this trip the best way possible? We’re talking about food and drinks, obviously. Tonight we’ll have dinner and get the chance to have a first taste of the local cuisine - maybe we’ll try pad thai (the real one though!) or khao pad (fried rice that sounds delicious)? The night doesn’t end here though: it continues in Khao San, one of the best streets to enjoy Bangkok’s nightlife.

Bangkok

Bangkok, the vibrant capital of Thailand, pulsates with a fascinating blend of old and new, sacred and worldly, tranquility and frenzy. It's an absolute must-visit on any respectable trip to Thailand, and today we'll dedicate the entire day to exploring this captivating city. Time may not be on our side, but we'll make every moment count!

Just a stone's throw away from the famous Khao San Road, the ultimate party street, lies the magnificent Wat Pho. This sprawling religious complex houses the world's largest reclining Buddha statue. Nearby, we'll discover the awe-inspiring Wat Phra Kaew, known as the Temple of the Emerald Buddha, and the majestic Grand Royal Palace, once the residence of Thai rulers. And just across the Chao Phraya River, which gracefully flows through Bangkok, we'll find the enchanting Wat Arun, also known as the Temple of Dawn.

By now, our tired feet deserve a break, don't you agree? Well, you're in luck! A night bus awaits us to transport us to Chiang Rai. What better way to rejuvenate while traveling than to rest comfortably on the bus? It's the perfect opportunity to recharge for the next leg of our adventure!

Welcome to the North

After a refreshing night's rest, we're all set for the true adventure to begin! We've arrived in Chiang Rai, the vibrant capital of Thailand's far north. Exploring the city's temples should be at the top of our list. Alongside the renowned White Temple, Temple of the Emerald Buddha, and Blue Temple, there are numerous smaller temples waiting to be discovered, and we have ample time to uncover the hidden gems!

Like any bustling Asian city, Chiang Rai boasts a vibrant night market that serves as the city's focal point. This bustling market, frequented by both tourists and locals, will be our evening destination. Here, we'll indulge in the exquisite flavours of Khao Soi, a delectable curry soup with chicken and noodles, before immersing ourselves in the local culture through captivating musical performances by talented local bands. It's an opportunity to fully immerse ourselves in the vibrant local atmosphere and embrace the essence of Chiang Rai.

Let's explore the city

Today, we have a local adventure planned. Hop aboard a local bus as we make our way to Chiang Mai. Before we dive into our walking tour, let's brush up on some history. Chiang Mai, meaning New City, was established in 1296 by King Mengrai and became the capital of the Lanna kingdom, succeeding Chiang Rai. Today, it stands as Thailand's second most important city.

Chiang Mai is a beloved destination for digital nomads, thanks to its affordable cost of living, thriving professional network, vibrant atmosphere, and its proximity to nature. It's a place we absolutely adore!

We'll wrap up the day at the renowned night market, where we'll indulge in authentic Thai street food, making it our delightful dinner for the evening. Get ready to tantalise your taste buds and experience the lively ambiance of the market.
