Thailand Highlights - 13 days

Visit the highlights of Thailand in a 13-day all encompassing trip with 12GO’s expert touch. Spend three-days in Thailand’s bustling capital Bangkok, discover Samut Songkram’s incredible train market and travel to the Bridge on the River Kwai in Kanchanaburi, before discovering Thailand’s ancient capitals of Ayutthaya and Sukhothai. The tour ends in the north in Chiang Mai and it’s beautiful surroundings.

Day 1:    Bangkok
 
 

On arrival in Bangkok International Airport, meet your guide and driver for a private transfer to your hotel in Bangkok. Rest of day is free at your own leisure. 

Day 2:    Bangkok
 
 

This tour starts at Siam Square, THE shopping area for young Thais, looking for the latest fashion trends and accessories. However hip and trendy Siam Square does have some serious roots! We visit Bangkok's oldest single-screen movie hall from the 1960s. It’s interior is unique, the modern “world of tomorrow” architecture is great; it’s well preserved. From the outside the cinema looks old-world, there are no digital displays here, and the name of the film showing is displayed in red letters, each put up by hand.

Continue walking through the campus of one of Bangkok’s oldest universities towards Jim Thompson’s House but instead of going inside (like countless other tourists), we head for Klong Saen Saeb, one of Bangkok oldest canals. Small walkways run alongside some parts of Klong Saen Saeb and provide the visitor with a whole new perspective of the area. Visit a small silk shop hidden in a tiny alley, its owner used to know Jim Thompson!

Klong Saen Saeb might be not very nice looking and smelly at times, but it is an important transport route. Large, noisy riverboats cruise up and down, making short stops at small piers. One has to be quick to board and continue to pay attention; the boat’s roof will be lowered before going under bridges!

End destination is The Golden Mount temple, but do have a look at the bridge with its Italian style reliefs of a woman clasping a child to her breast! We have a coffee break at a local shop with a great view of The Golden Mount before moving on.

Walk through the temple grounds, have a look at a firework shop before heading the area known as the Monk's Bowl Village. Nowadays factory made bowls are so much cheaper that this traditional craft is dying out, but this area still survives. 

In the meantime more and more China Town influences become visible, a Chinese signboard here, a Chinese shrine there… 

Next is a traditional ‘fresh market’ with many things to see and smell. Onwards to the 'Flashlight Market' area, where especially during weekends everything and anything is being sold. 

We stop at a Thai Bank, which hosts an interesting Thai art exhibition on its (air-conditioned!) second floor.

Back outside it’s time for a short stretch of Sampeng Lane, a long, narrow pedestrian lane crammed with masses of goods from hair slides (sold by the dozen) to kitchen utensils.

A few narrow alleys and some interesting old buildings are all that’s left before we enjoy lunch at a wonderful riverside restaurant.

Day 3:    Bangkok – Kanchanaburi
 
 

Early this morning (usually between 06:15 - 07:00 AM), you will be picked up from your hotel by our minivan and guide and driven to the old fishing port of Samut Songkram, locally known as Mae klong, which is well known for its railway market. The station is in the middle of a huge, local market, and is usually packed with people. Just before the railway station vendors use the space between the rails for their trays of vegetables, fruit and fish…

Your guide will walk with you through the market along the tracks until the train arrives!

Then continue driving to Kanchanaburi town. Board the train to Namtok over the infamous Burma Railway, constructed in WWII under Japanese orders by POW's and forced laborers. After lunch at local restaurant we will take a boat to Float House.

Day 4:    Kanchanaburi
 
 

After breakfast, you will return back by boat and continue by car. Drive to visit the Erawan Waterfall. Entrance fees included. You will spend a couple of hours at this wonderful waterfall. You can walk up all the way to the top of the waterfall or have a swim in the crystal clear water at one of the many levels of the falls. After a simple Thai lunch at the falls, transfer to your hotel in Kanchanaburi town.

In Kanchanaburi you will visit the Bridge over the River Kwai, War Cemetery and the interesting Thailand Burma Railway Centre. 

The day ends in accommodation near Kanchanaburi.

Day 5:    Kanchanaburi – Ayutthaya
 
 

After a leisurely breakfast, embark on our journey about 4 to 5 hours to Ayutthaya. Ayutthaya was the Burmese destroys the capital of Siam from the 15th through the 18th century until it was. The Thais moved their capital to Bangkok (Krung Thep) in the 1770’s. 

Visit Wat Phanachoeng, Wat Yai Chai Mongkol and Wat Mahathat, with the famous head in the tree. Enjoy lunch at the local restaurant.

Afterwards continue to check in at your hotel.

Day 6:    Ayutthaya – Sukhothai
 
 

This morning transfer to Nakhon Sawan where you will visit Wat Krieng Krai, but watch out for those naughty monkeys. Continue to Kamphaeng Phet where there is time to have a look around its historical park.

Upon arrival in the late afternoon at Sukhothai check in your resort, where you can go for a refreshing dive into the hotel pool.

Day 7:    Sukhothai – Lampang
 
 

This morning we explore World Heritage Site Sukhothai Historical Park by bicycle: ruined temples, city moats and walls, palaces and irrigation systems offer great views and photographic opportunities. The art and architecture styles reflect the original Khmer, Mon, Sinhalese and finally Tai influences.

Afterwards we return to our resort, check out and continue by minivan to Lampang, along the way we stop for a local lunch and a visit of Si Satchanalai Historical Park. Upon arrival in Lampang, the only place in Thailand where horse-drawn carriages are still used as public transport, check in your countryside lodge.

Day 8:    Lampang – Chiang Mai
 
 

Lampang used to be part of the Haripunchai kingdom and was a major centre of the teak industry last century. Our first visit will be the interesting 100 years old market next to the railway line. Taste some of the typical Thai delicacies that are being sold here. Drive to the old center of Lampang. Enjoy a horse cart ride through the old streets of Lampang during which we will visit the Burmese style temple Wat Si Rong Muang. 

Before lunch we will visit the beautifully renovated Moungngwezin House, which now houses a gallery and a coffee shop. We admire the old teak wooden viharn at Wat Koh.

We will have lunch in the Riverside Restaurant on the Wang River.

Drive to Chiang Mai where we will drop you off at your hotel.

Day 9:    Chiang Mai
 
 

Pick up hotel by private car, go to Praisanee Rd and get off just before the Philatelic Museum (Tue - Sun 9.00 am - 4.00 pm, closed on Mondays!),

The Chiang Mai Philatelic Museum was once a main post office in Chiang Mai. In 1990 the Fine Arts Department decide to change the post office to a museum. It shows both Thai and foreign stamps from the past to the present.

Continue on Praisanee Road, on the right side there are countless stalls selling all kinds of products.

Go towards the footbridge (still broken) over the Ping River, but instead cross the road & enter the market building. Have a look in the center and afterwards take the Wichayanon exit. Go straight into Warorot market. In the center is an area with large photos - depicting the market’s past – hanging from the ceiling. Almost everything is on sale here; fresh/dried fruit - vegetables - flowers, butchery and bakery items, herbs, condiments, clothing, shoes, cosmetics, jewelry, lacquer ware, silks, hemps, handicrafts, ceramics, wood carvings, beauty supplies, household appliances, electronic gadgets, sunglasses, watches, souvenirs, and fireworks, just to name a few.

Outside we take a classic Samlor (= bicycle taxi) for a short ride to 300 years old Wat Bupparam.

King Muang Kaew founded this temple in 1497. The Burmese-style chedi was rebuilt in 1958, and there is a well nearby which supplies holy water for anointing the King. A small Lanna style viharn contains a large brick and stucco Buddha. Though over 300 years old, much that is seen today probably originates from a restoration at the end of the 19th century.

We continue walking to 17th century Wat Mahawan and have a look there.

Finally we wander down small lanes to Wat Pan Tong and more than 500 years old Wat Loi Kroh.

Along the way we grabbed some snacks, purchased some souvenirs and took plenty of photos. The tour was taken at a comfortable pace with a clear direction.
