Valid for Departures Now Through: 31 Mar 2020


Day 1
Bangkok, Thailand
The Peninsula Bangkok Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Starting at Bangkok’s historical and cultural epicenter, we visit the Grand Palace, located in Old Bangkok. Here, you can see Thailand’s most revered temple - the Temple of the Emerald Buddha. Next, we explore the canals by longtail boat on a thrilling ride through the khlongs of Thonburi, to see how life unfurls within the river communities. Next, it’s off to the truly spellbinding Wat Arun - the Temple of the Dawn - or to Wat Po, which houses the largest indoor Reclining Buddha. For a luxurious first night, we recommend The Peninsula hotel on the Chao Phraya River, one of the city’s landmark properties.

Day 2
Bangkok, Thailand
The Peninsula Bangkok Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Thais are intensely proud of their cuisine, and today you can gain some insight into this passion with a Thai cooking class. Learn how to cook famous Thai dishes at a prestigious culinary school by the river, using fresh produce from the school’s organic gardens. Next on the itinerary we bring you to Pak Klong Talaat - the flower market - is next on the itinerary, where fruit, vegetables and bundles of fresh flowers arrive by the truckload from nearby provinces. In the evening, it’s over to nearby Yaowarat Road, at the center of Chinatown, a treasure trove of fresh seafood and authentic Thai-Chinese cuisine.

Day 3
Khao Yai National Park, Thailand
Kirimaya Resort Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

In the morning we head to the mountains Khao Yai, where the cooler climate creates fertile ground for Thailand’s growing viticulture industry. The lush green environs of the vineyards are the perfect setting for a leisurely bike ride, enjoying cool mountain air and even stopping to sample local wines. At the end of the day, retreat to one of the area’s five-star mountain resorts - we recommend The Kirimaya Resort, unsurpassed for luxury in Khao Yai.

Day 4
Khao Yai National Park, Thailand
Kirimaya Resort Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Today we explore Thailand’s third largest national park, home to countless animal species, including Asiatic bears, Asian elephants, gibbons, sambar deer and more than 400 species of birds. On this three- to four-hour jungle trek we take in just a fraction of this UNESCO site’s beautiful landscapes, including waterfalls, lakes, caves and cliffs.

The Remote Lands Guides were excellent. The cars used for transportation were roomy and clean. The hotels were 5 star and their attention to detail was over the top. There was only perfection from the people we met and it was also comforting to know that our trip was being carefully monitored by Remote Lands supervisors every step of the way. We would recommend Remote Lands to anyone needing exceptional service in Asia.

We had 4 different guides (one in each city) and they were all wonderful. We appreciated that they let us be flexible and make game time decisions. We skipped a lot of the "touristy" sites and felt we had a more authentic experience.

Beyond expectation

Excellent. Guides at each location were friendly, personable and knowledgeable. Want to share a special thank you to Nadia Thakul (Bangkok) & Mr. Buntheun (Siem Reap). After missing my connecting flight from Shanghai to Siem Reap, I called Mr. Buntheun to let him know I was not able tomake it to Siem Reap as planned and for him to notify the hotel. I was flying instead to Phnom Phen and would notify him later of my flight to Siem Reap. Upon arrival in Phnom Phen as I was filling out my visa on arrival form, a Remote Land guide greeted me and told me that Mr. Buntheun had notified the Bangkok office of my predicament and sent him to greet me. As you can imagine being in a foreign land in an unplanned location he was a sight for sore eyes. He got me in contact with Nadia who then took care of the rest of the accommodations (hotel, transportation to/from airport and flight from Phnom Phen to Siem Reap the next day). Assistance provided by Remote Lands got us to Siem Reap on time.
