  • Itinerary

    Day 1

    Fly to Thailand


    Days 2-3

    Bangkok

    Longtail Boat Trip Down Bangkok’s Klongs (Canals)

    Take a journey of the “Venice of the East” along Bangkok’s canals, “klongs,” traveling via longtail boats to witness daily Thai life along the river. Get those cameras ready!

    Grand Palace and Wat Phra Kaew

    The Grand Palace and Wat Phra Kaew (the Temple of the Emerald Buddha) form what many consider the greatest spectacle for visitors to Bangkok. Dating back to 1782, when Bangkok was founded, the entire compound consists of more than 100 brightly colored buildings, golden spires, and glittering mosaics. The temple’s centerpiece, the 2-foot-tall Emerald Buddha is situated on a high, gold altar to signify its important status in the Thai kingdom. It’s so important, in fact, that only the King is allowed to change his costumes, one for each of the three seasons (hot, cool, and wet).

    Temple of Dawn

    We’ll visit Wat Arun (Temple of Dawn), and witness a beautiful illumination that gives the 260-foot-high, Khmer-inspired tower a magical appearance. This is a fantastic photographic opportunity for us!

    Wat Pho (Temple of the Reclining Buddha)

    We’ll visit the Temple of the Reclining Buddha and see a statue of Buddha that is 150 feet long with feet that measure 9 feet high. We’ll make sure that the kids observe the ornate details included on its massive extremities.


    Days 4-8

    Chiang Mai

    Elephant Nature Park

    Spend the day as a “mahout” or elephant caretaker, learning about guiding, feeding, and the best way to play with these giant, sage beasts!

    Zip-line Rainforest Canopy Ride

    Experience an extreme thrill ride, zip-lining along 3 miles of cables high in the sky, the longest and highest adventure of its kind. A picture-perfect moment and a great adventure!

    Friends Across Borders: Play a Game of Takraw

    One of the most exciting parts of visiting Thailand is getting to meet your kid’s Thai pen pals and playing Takraw, a South East Asian game described as “kick volleyball.” It’s fun for everyone!

    Doi Inthanon National Park Hike

    Hike through the wonderland of forests, waterfalls, and ancient temple ruins of Doi Inthanon National Park.

    Authentic Thai Cooking Class

    Head to a local restaurant to learn how to cook authentic Thai food in a traditional Thai setting. With the help of friendly, skilled instructors, we’ll shop for the meal’s ingredients at the local market before we begin cooking our masterpieces.

    Alms for the Buddhist Monks

    Take part in a very special Thai custom, offering alms to Buddhist monks, draped in their distinctive saffron colored robes, in exchange for their blessing. If we’re lucky, we may even get to watch them performing early-morning prayers.

    Kayaking at Sri Lanna National Park

    Have an adventure in Sri Lanna National Park exploring its jungles and Mae Ngat Lake, playing in the water and kayaking to our unique lunch spot: a bamboo-raft, floating house!
