Planned by Dr. David; Executed by TipTop-Travel luxury private tours
- The Classic Bangkok Tour – including the Grand Palace, Wat Pho (the Temple of the Reclining Buddha), and a private boat cruise through the city canals
- The Unseen Bangkok – Phra Pradaeng neighborhood and bicycle rickshaw tour, the 3-headed elephant temple and the Ancient City (Muang Boran)- the biggest open air museum in the world which we will explore by traveling in a motorized golf cart
- Amphawa attractions: palm-sugar production and Thai house, Amphawa Train Market (“Folding Umbrella Market”) and the “Temple in the tree” (Wat Bang Kung), along with today’s highlight – a private boat cruise to see the unusual swimming monkeys and a visit to a local shell farm. The Amphawa tour plan also includes a special treat – a picnic in the middle of the sea.
After finishing the selected activities, we will leave Amphawa behind, and make our way to the famous resort town of Hua Hin. There, we will comfortably settle in a luxury hotel on the beach. In the evening, we will visit the famous local night bazaar or the unique Cicada Market – a great little art fair available only on weekends.

Next, we will continue in a fun, little Tuk-tuk ride to the beautiful Ao Manao bay, where we will meet the shy, yet lovely langur monkeys, while enjoying the delightful bay landscape (located in the Thai Air-Force base). We will continue our journey to the south, and possibly – if the time allows – visit one of the most beautiful temples in Thailand, overlooking a spectacular view of local shores. On our way, we will stop for lunch, coffee breaks, ice cream and snacks, and visit fruit markets that are scattered along our route. Next, we will head towards our accommodation destination – the city of Surat Thani, the gate to southern Thailand and the closest location to the spectacular Cheow Lan lake which we will visit the next day.
** In the evening, you can follow our guide to a new, trendy shopping center with lots of shops, restaurants, coffee shops etc. and dine there.
**The tour price does not include dinner costs
[/vckit_workflow_item][vckit_workflow_item image_alignment=”left” tutorial=”” title=”Day 3″ subtitle=”Dedicated to the beautiful Cheow Lan lake” image=”18329″]The entire day will be dedicated to the beautiful Cheow Lan lake in Khao Sok National Park – one of the most stunning lakes in the entire world!! A private boat will take us for a cruise to explore the lake and the breathtaking landscape that surrounds it. Later, we will go on a short track through the national park to explore it by foot, and finish off on a motor bamboo-raft with a local tour guide, equipped with much-needed lighting for a magical tour to a stalactite cave. We will enjoy lunch in a fabulous floating resort on the lake, where fun slides will be available, leading straight into the water. As we conclude the activity, our van will be waiting for us, ready to take us to a lovely resort in the park, where we will spend the night.
** Dinner will be available at the resort, but you can also take the van instead, and go out, led by our tour guide, to the nearby village, where you will find an authentic Thai restaurant and even a great pizza place (dinners are not included in the tour cost).
[/vckit_workflow_item][vckit_workflow_item image_float=”yes” image_alignment=”right” tutorial=”” title=”Day 4″ subtitle=”Dedicated to Khao Sok National Park” image=”18509″]This day will be dedicated to Khao Sok National Park, where various outdoor activities await, entailing hours of fun and excitement in a lovely natural setting. We will start our day by sailing in a canoe cruise, where an experienced sailor will do the rowing, so you can lay back and fully enjoy the natural beauty and serenity that surrounds you. Then, we will head to a nearby natural reserve where you can either take an elephant ride or go on an ATV field-trip. Whatever you choose, will be followed by today’s highlight – the best white-water rafting available in Thailand. A short, customized rafting route will be available to kids older than 5 years, along with a slightly longer route for 10-year-olds and above. Another option features a special, extreme slide which was set on site. It will take you (brave ones) flying right into the small lake. Once we finish our daily activity, we will drive to Ao Nang beach in Krabi, and check in to one of the best hotels in the area.
♦ Feel free to enjoy a free night out in Ao Nang, with its various restaurants, shops, massage parlors etc.
[/vckit_workflow_item][vckit_workflow_item image_alignment=”left” tutorial=”” title=”Day 5″ subtitle=”All about Phang Nga Bay” image=”18676″]This day will be all about Phang Nga Bay, its spectacular landscape and the famous James Bond island. Phang Nga is a marvelous, natural region which strikes the eye and captures every traveler’s heart. This setting is graced by scattered islands, impressive cliffs, mysterious caves and Mangrove forests; it features chalk cliffs in various shapes, sticking out sharply from the green emerald water which granted the bay its beautiful, unique appearance. A private boat will take you for a lovely cruise in the spectacular bay setting, and then head to the famous James Bond island. On our way, we will engage in kayak sailing towards the nearby caves (don’t you worry – an experienced sailor will row for you) followed by a visit to Ko Panyee island and the Muslim village built on poles, where many surprises await – including a soccer field.
** During the daily timeline, you can combine and enjoy Krabi’s excellent ziplines (for an additional cost). Lodging will take place at the same hotel as the previous night.[/vckit_workflow_item][vckit_workflow_item image_float=”yes” image_alignment=”right” tutorial=”” title=”Day 6″ subtitle=”Return” image=”18509″]This day marks one of the highlights of your entire visit to Thailand, as it celebrates the beauty of the most spectacular islands and shores in the country (yes, the ones you see in all the postcards and brochures of southern Thailand). These natural gems include Koh Hong, the pearl of Andaman Islands, the famous, lovely Railay beach, along with various other shores and islands (Poda, Tap and other islands which grace the ocean). As expected from a luxury private tour – we will indulge you with a private speedboat, which will be available at your disposal during the entire day. We are not just talking about comfort and style here, but also offering you high-sailing-speed, so you can spend more time in the beautiful islands and fully enjoy the wonderful beaches.
