Taking in everything from the beautiful madness of Bangkok to national parks teeming with elephants, your first taste of Thailand is unlikely to be your last. Finishing off in Phuket over 800km from where you started off, this trip of a lifetime is the perfect introduction to the land of smiles.
After partying all night in Bangkok and tracking elephants though the jungle, the luxurious 5-Star Serenity Resort & Residences Phuket awaits you. Located right on the bay with spectacular views over the surrounding mountains, it’ll be a welcome chance to put your feet up after 5 nights of adventure.
Things to Do
• The golden Buddha statue in Wat Traimit is the largest golden statue in the world, and is definitely worth seeing.
• Chatuchak Weekend Market in Bangkok is up there as one of the largest in the world, and is probably one of the loudest as well. Even if you don’t want to buy anything, the sheer variety of what’s an offer is pretty special.
Thailand’s first luxury tented camp, Elephant Hills Camp
is one of the best places to see elephants in their natural environment.
• You’ve probably seen dozens of Instagram posts about them already, but Phi Phi Islands are truly spectacular.
Best Time to Visit
Nov-Mar: November is a particularly good time to visit Phuket, as the sun returns ahead of the Christmas rush. Bangkok never sleeps, but the weather is usually at its driest and warmest so you don’t have to deal with the sweaty humidity of other months.
