Itinerary

01

Day 1: Bangkok

Arrive at any time.

If you'd like, get here early to get some sightseeing in. It's best to travel around by water taxi, since the streets are so crowded. We recommend Chao Phraya River for its excellent views.

Get on first-name basis with Thailand's capital city by bike with an optional bike tour. Today, you can check out Wat Pho and the Grand Palace, go for a street food crawl, relax with a Thai massage, or explore the klongs (canals) by boat before boarding the overnight train.

03

Day 3: Surat Thani/Khao Sok

Lush Khao Sok National Park awaits. Today, you can set off to Lake Cheow Lan to take in the views while hiking or swimming in the national park. Spend tonight falling asleep to the sounds of the jungle.

This area is known for its natural beauty. You know what that means: lots of chances for photos.

04

Day 4: Khao Sok/Ko Samui Island

Your next stop is just a ferry ride away. Today, explore Ko Samui's beauty by catching the sunset at Chaweng Beach before eating your weight in street food at the Chaweng Night Market.

05

Today is yours to take on. Walk around and explore, but don't skip trying the national dish of Malaysia, nasi lemak — a traditional rice dish made with coconut milk and pandan leaf.

Once the sun sets, see another side to the city as you stop by the famous Petronas Towers (which light up at night) before checking out the local nightlife.

11

Day 11: Kuala Lumpur

You've got the whole day for exploring. Head out of town to visit the famous Batu Caves or the Orang Alsi Museum. Later tonight, head to some rooftop bars for drinks and dancing, or stop by the night market and find some flavours you never knew existed.

Built in 1928 as a fresh market for locals, and revamped in the 1980s as an outlet for all Malaysian handicrafts, the night market is a local institution. Make sure you don't miss it.
