Fly into Thailand’s capital, Bangkok, for a 2-night stay to begin your 14-day Thailand travel itinerary.
Transportation: The BTS Skytrain and the MRT subway ensure quick, easy access to Bangkok’s major attractions. Taxis and tuk tuks are also readily available.
Where to stay: For your stay in Chiang Mai, enjoy the family-friendly facilities at the boutique Pastell Oldtown Chiang Mai, or the riverside location and traditional-style teak wood rooms of Amata Lanna Village.
Transportation: A rental car gives you the freedom to discover the wider region at your own pace. Combine your flights, car rental and hotel in one of our Thailand package deals.
Your flight from Chiang Mai to Krabi will take about 2 hours. For this part of your Thailand travel itinerary, your base is the beachside town of Ao Nang, which is a short drive from Krabi Airport, where you can pick up a rental car.
Transportation: Ao Nang is walkable, but you’ll need your rental car to explore the wider region.
Book a longtail boat to take you on the 15-minute ride to the Railay Peninsula.
Transportation: Longtail boats leave from Ao Nang Beach, which is within walking distance of most hotels. Once on the Railay Peninsula, it’s easy to explore the area on foot.
A 90-minute ferry ride brings you to the dazzling Phi Phi Islands. Check into your hotel on Phi Phi Don, the largest of the islands, for a 2-night stay.
Transportation: Return your rental car at Krabi Airport and take a taxi to nearby Klong Jilad Pier for the ferry to the Phi Phi Islands.
Hop back on a ferry for the 2-hour trip to Phuket. Choose your base for the 2-night stay: Karon and Kata are good choices for families, Patong is the place for nightlife and Bang Tao Beach is a relaxing haven.
Where to stay: In Patong, enjoy a quiet oasis at hotels such as Burasari Phuket Resort and Spa. Swim in the rooftop pool or the nearby beach at Pacific Club Resort in Karon. Or, consider staying in Bang Tao Beach at family-friendly Laguna Holiday Club Phuket Resort, which has tennis courts and waterslides.
Transportation: Most beach resorts are within walking distance of shops and restaurants. To travel further afield, hail taxis or tuk tuks.
When thinking about what to do in Thailand, a guided boat tour around Phang Nga Bay should be at the top of your list. Most hotels and local tour operators will arrange the trip, including transfers from your hotel. Here’s what most of the tours include:
After your tour, you catch a 90-minute flight from Phuket to Bangkok for another night in the city.
Located in Southern Asia and reaching into the Andaman Sea, Thailand is rich in history and natural beauty, from the mountain temples of Chiang Rai Province to the beaches of Krabi. Whether you’re in big-city Bangkok or the islands of Koh Samui and Phuket, Thailand is home to globally adored cuisine, gorgeous beaches and warm hospitality. This may be a pretty big destination to see in one trip, but Wotif’s Thailand holiday packages will help you visit all the top cities and sites on your travel wish list. Things to Do in Thailand
Holidays to Thailand are filled with new sights, flavours and experiences in the midst of a peace-loving, predominantly Buddhist environment. Take your time visiting Chiang Rai’s White Temple in the northernmost province—there’s no rush. While you’re up north, look out over the Golden Triangle, where the borders of Thailand, Myanmar and Laos meet. Closer to Bangkok, spend a day—or two—at Ayutthaya Historical Park, within walking distance to many gorgeous temples near Chao Phraya River. When you’re ready to see the capital city, book one of Wotif’s car hire options in Bangkok and start weaving through the colourful streets to the Temple of the Reclining Buddha and the Grand Palace in city centre. There’s enough to do in Bangkok to fill Thailand holidays to the brim, but you need to get out to Phuket and Koh Samui, too. On the islands, catch a local festival or full-moon party and be as lazy as your heart desires on the many beaches. Shopping, Dining & Nightlife
“The Land of Smiles” is no stranger to modern shopping malls, like Bangkok’s famous MBK. While you’re hunting for authentic Thailand deals without queues of other tourists, head 90 km southwest of Bangkok to the Amphawa Floating Market. If you’re more of a landlubber and a night owl, scoop up some great finds at JJ Green Market, an open-air shopping and eating destination in Bangkok right next to the sprawling Chatuchak Weekend Market.
If you can’t find something to eat here, you’re doing Thailand holidays wrong. Each region varies in its culinary favourites, but you’re likely to find eats that meet lots of dietary needs, including vegetarian and gluten-free. Try the Som-Tam, a spicy papaya salad, creamy massaman curry—a specialty in Central Thailand—and anything else you can stuff in your face.
After dark, you can find a bumping nightlife in any big city, but the two big hitters are Bangkok and Phuket. In the former, explore discotheques, dance shows, concerts and a whole lot of neon lights. Down on the island of Phuket, the nightlife is laid-back and slightly sandy, with the main club scene on Patong Beach. What’s Next?
