Itinerary

01

Bangkok

Your adventure begins in the sprawling capital of Bangkok, this sprawling city is the most visited in the world and serves as the cultural and economic hub of the Kingdom of Thailand. Meet with your fantastic Busabout guide and get the lowdown on all of the exciting adventures ahead. We assemble in the reception area this evening to get introduced to your Busabout crew and fellow passengers before heading out to explore the infamous, even for Bangkok standards, backpacker area of Khaosan Road. Head out into the night for the experience of a lifetime in the party capital of the world!

02

Bangkok to Pai

Head out to enjoy the day exploring this vibrant capital. See the home of Thai royalty at the sprawling Grand Palace complex, marvel at the intricate design of Wat Pho temple, enjoy a cruise along the Chao Phraya river before visiting the splendid Temple of Dawn, or visit the weekend market of Chatuchak, the largest in the world, and partake in some retail therapy. This evening we meet in reception for our transfer to Bangkok s main train station where we board our overnight train to the northern province of Chiang Mai. Settle in and relax as the rhythmic clack of the train tracks lulls you to sleep.

03

Pai

Our train arrives in Chiang Mai this morning and we have some time to grab a bite to eat for breakfast before beginning our scenic meander north to the quaint village of Pai. As we wind along the more than 700 sweeping turns en route to Pai we have a stop at the spectacular Pai Canyon, take a few snaps and relish the panorama before we depart for our home for the next two nights, the laid back town of Pai. Upon arrival we head out on a short orientation walk before checking in to the hotel. Spend the rest of the afternoon exploring, relaxing in a geothermal pool at the hotel, or take a stroll along the Pai River and catch a glimpse of the revered local elephants. We meet in reception this evening before heading into town to visit the numerous markets and sample some delicious Thai cuisine, then we head to a local bar for a few relaxing drinks in this splendid sanctuary.

04

Pai

Relax by the pool, shop for some Thai treasures, relax in one of the many fine local watering holes, try some delicious street food, get lost in the rich natural beauty of Pai s surrounding wilderness, or join us for our exciting optional excursion. We hope you ll join us today as we trek through the jungle, see the sights and sounds of the wilderness and meet remote villagers as we make our way through the local flora and onward to explore the breathtaking Lod Caves on a bamboo raft. This is our last evening in Pai so check off those last minute to dos and enjoy a drink in one of the numerous, hippie style, bars.

05

Pai to Chiang Mai

We say goodbye to Pai and head back to Chiang Mai this morning. Upon reentering Chiang Mai our first stop is at an ancient temple, the oldest in the area, with a local guide to highlight all the intricacies of this fascinating location. We offer two optional excursions today, starting with a Siam Rice cooking class to grasp the complexities of this Thai staple, and ending with a bone crunching Muay Thai show to get the adrenaline pumping. After all the excitement, relax with an ice-cold beverage in one of Chiang Mai s great bars.

06

Chiang Mai

Spend your time wandering the Old Town whilst shopping and exploring, head out to the gilded hillside temple of Wat Doi Suthep, or visit Catmosphere and enjoy a purrfect beverage with some furry friends. If that doesn t float your boat then maybe an optional excursion to a Ethical Elephant Park to meet these gentle giants or perhaps a zip line tour through the jungle s canopy with gibbons is more your style. This evening we head out into the night markets for some retail therapy and dinner before heading off to enjoy a truly thai cultural experience with a twist at an included ladyboy cabaret show.

07

Chiang Mai

Check-out is after breakfast. We hope to see you again!
