Day 1 Bangkok

Loud, bright, chaotic and delightful, Bangkok is a city of modern excesses intermingled with simple traditions, all wrapped up in the famous smiles of the locals.

Day 2 Sukhothai

With some of the most impressive ruins in Thailand, Sukhothai is a friendly town with a wealth of fabulous sights to see.

Day 3 Lampang

Lampang is a northern Thai city with interesting temples and great bars - and where the horse and cart is still used for transport, mainly for tourists though.

Day 4 Homestay

An experience like no other, spend the night with a welcoming Thai family, learning about their lives and traditions before sharing a delicious dinner.

Days 5-7 Chiang Mai

Awash with stunning temples, fabulous markets and a lively city centre, charming Chiang Mai is rich in culture and the gateway to the northern hilltribes.

Days 8-9 Bangkok

Bangkok is more than just colourful city streets, khlongs (canals) weave their way through suburbs, forest parks green up the city and Buddhist temples help bring serenity.

Days 10-11 Ko Pha-Ngan

Known for having infamous full moon parties, Ko Pha-Ngan is a mountainous island with gorgeous beaches, great diving and secluded places to relax, or nightlife to enjoy.

Days 12-13 Ko Tao

Ko Tao is a small island perfect to escape the crowds and don a snorkel or go diving - the underwater world here is spectacular.

Days 14-16 Ko Samui

Famous for its gorgeous white-sand beaches, aquamarine waters, myriad of things to do and spoils of paradise, the island of Ko Samui is a firm favourite among travellers.
