Tuk Tuks and Longtails in Bangkok

After your international flight you’ll arrive in the bustling capital of Bangkok. A welcoming driver will meet you and your family at the airport and transfer you to a riverside hotel with a rooftop pool. The following day you’ll go on a tuk tuk trip through Bangkok’s bustling streets and journey down the canals by longtail boat. A great way to see a different side to this vibrant city!

Rafthouses, Waterfalls and the Railway

You’ll then travel by minibus to the River Kwai area where you’ll learn about the haunting history, take a train ride across the infamous Burma ‘Death Railway’, dive into the sparkling waters of the Erawan Waterfalls and sleep on a floating raft house hotel, surrounded by the noises of the jungle! If you’re lucky, you may even wake to see elephants bathing in the river in the morning. On night two, you’ll stay in a Thai style family friendly hotel, set in beautiful gardens in the town of Kanchanaburi.

Giant Buddha’s and Parasol Painting

The night market, packed with souvenirs and aromatic street food stalls, is a great place to explore with the kids and try some truly different delicacies. The following morning you’ll take a trip to climb the sacred Doi Suthep Temple and learn how to make traditional parasols.
