We begin at a highly-rated, luxurious, five-star resort situated on the edge of Krabi Marine National Park on the crystal clear waters of the Andaman Sea. Nestled discreetly amidst tropical gardens and coconut groves against a backdrop of sheer cliffs and lush jungle foliage, the resort can only be reached by boat. Accommodation is in beautifully designed private bungalows, excellent cuisine, warm and attentive service and one of the most unique relaxation spas in Thailand. We then fly to Chiang Mai, the cultural capital located in the foothills of the north. Custom designed excursions will include exploring ancient temples by rickshaw, participating in traditional offering at a Buddhist temple, enjoying a private walking and shopping tour of local artisans and their handi-crafts, cooking classes, an unforgettable traditional paper lantern ceremony and an optional visit to a nearby elephant sanctuary. Accommodation will be at a lovely property located in the historic heart of the city. This charming boutique hotel takes its name from a majestic 200 year old tamarind tree that shelters the hotel. The rooms reflect the rich ethnic diversity of northern Thailand by using fabrics and patterns drawn from various tribes of the region.
