Thailand

Prague is equally spectacular as Paris in terms of beauty but it can boast of the best beer in the world (well, we think so!). The art galleries have an array of Bohemian explorations to admire, from the Gothic altarpieces in the Convent of St Agnes, to the art nouveau of Alfons Mucha, and the magnificent collection of 20th-century surrealists, cubists and constructivists. If you have an interest in art – you’ll love the place. The weird and witty sculpture of David Černý can be seen public spaces, and the city itself offers a such a range of stunning architecture that it leaves the jaw dropped for most of the time. The reason it’s a great place for a family celebration is the variety of things that you can do here. It’s easy to stumble across ancient chapels, unexpected gardens, cute cafes and old-fashioned bars with hardly a tourist in sight. We’ve kept this trip short, but you can extend Prague for weeks if you like – there’s enough to do.  

Day 1:

Arrive in bustling Bangkok speckled with traditions and culture. Let the first day soak you in Bangkok’s best. Once refreshed, visit the Grand Palace, where the Royal family of Thailand resides and the nearby complex of Wat Pho, which houses Thailand’s most extensive collection of images and statues of Buddha. Take a stroll across the street towards the Wat Pho complex to admire the reclining Buddha’s famous statue and the surrounding temple grounds. Enjoy heavenly views of Bangkok city, from the top of the Wat Arun Temple, situated by the Chao Phraya river. Spend the afternoon riding up and down from the central pier point on the Chao Phraya river in a water taxi. Spend the evening on Khao San road, the 24×7 activity hub of the city.

 

Day 2:

Start your day with a mix of relaxation, culture and adventure! Head out as early as possible to the famous Khlong Lat Mayom floating market in Taling Chan, about 10 km east of downtown Bangkok. Eating here is easily the highlight of your visit to Bangkok, as visitors can order dishes like boat noodles and oyster omelette cooked fresh on a tiny wooden boat stationed besides your table. Exploring the floating markets takes about three-quarters of your day, so once done, head to your hotel to get some rest before heading out to grab dinner. Bangkok is also well-known for its party scene so even if you aren’t looking to dance the night away at a club, look for a place with good views like the Vertigo and Moon Bar to sip on some excellent cocktails while enjoying an incredible unobstructed 360-degree view of the city.

 

Day 3:

Transfer to Kanchanburi, located about 150 kilometres away from Bangkok. This is home to the famous WWII Death Railway, built by prisoners of the war and pleasant riverside retreats. Head straight for a relaxed lifestyle lunch by the riverfront The Village Farm To Cafe once you get here for a hearty meal. Go back in history, with the bridge over the River Kwai. Some of you may have watched the movie of the same name, the inspiration for which was this very site.  The Death Railway Museum and Hell Fire Pass Interpretative Museum focus on the creation of the pass by the Allied prisoners of war. Enjoy the rest of the evening at the gorgeous open-air Dejtosapak Restaurant for a memorable dining experience amidst green sights.  You can spend a night here or go back to Bangkok.

 

Day 4:

Take a flight to Phuket on this day. Spend your first time away from the buzzing city at Karon beach and then visit the island’s most well-known attraction and an excellent viewpoint for Big Buddha. The Old Town, Wat Chalong and nightlife in Phuket at Bangla Road are the top highlights.

Day 5:

Hit the Kata Beach or the Nai Harn Beach to spend some time under the shady palms with just a scattered few vendors to keep you company.  If island-hopping is why you’re in Phuket, hire a speed boat or opt for a tour that will take you island-hopping around Phang Nga Bay.  Coconut Island, Ko Lon and Ko He are some other islands you can choose to visit if you’d like to keep away from James Bond (officially Khao Phing Kan or Ko Khao Phing Kan) and Phi Phi. Wildlife lovers can visit the Green Elephant Sanctuary Park.

 

Day 6:

Take a direct flight home.
