Thai Vintage Romance – Bangkok, Chiang Mai and Elephant Hills

Mixed Board Basis 8 nights from €2,399 per person Including Flights

Overview

This is a vintage itinerary of the highest quality with iconic accommodations that have stood the test of time; sometimes only the best will do, especially if you are planning a special occasion or honeymoon trip. Start your adventure in the north of this beguiling country, in Chiang Mai where you will stay at the beautifully restored heritage boutique, 137 Pillars House. Then move south to the capital and the famous Peninsula Bangkok with a riverside setting and traditional yet glamorous amenities and service; finally enjoy a unique luxury jungle safari in Thailand’s largest rainforest at Elephant Hills.

Alternatively we recommend a beach extension; instead of travelling home from Khao Sok choose an easy road transfer from Elephant Hills to the tranquil beach resort of Khao Lak or the island beaches of Phuket.
