Day 5: Biking Through an Archaeological Park
With our tour guide from Chiang Mai, we are relocating to Sukhothai, home to one of Thailand’s greatest archaeological parks. There we are provided with a guided tour, best explored on a bicycle. Inside this park, there are 193 ruins, the remains of the royal palace and 26 temples. The park is maintained by the Fine Arts Department of Thailand with the help of UNESCO, which has declared it a World Heritage Site. Each year, the park welcomes thousands of visitors who marvel at the ancient Buddha figures, palace buildings and ruined temples.
Day 6: Bangkok's Grand Palace & Grander Markets & Lebua Hotel’s World-Renowned Sky Bar
We relocate from Sukhothai to Bangkok via a quick and direct flight. The capital of Thailand is popular specifically for its nightlife scene, food market scene and the Grand Palace area. Today in Bangkok we are first provided with a guided tour of the Grand Palace. Next, we are taken to a large, open-air mall called Asiatique The Riverfront. There we have some time to shop around. Afterwards, we head to the Chinatown Market (a.k.a. Yaowarat). There we are provided with a guided tour.
In the later-evening, we are taken to Patpong. It features a busy night market as well as is home to one of the city’s biggest red-light districts. There we are provided with a guided tour. Next, we are taken to Lebua hotel’s Sky Bar, which is located on the nearby Silom Road. This is one of the highest rooftop bars in the world. Also worth mentioning, Sky Bar had a starring role in an internationally acclaimed movie called Hangover 2. The night ends on Khao San Road. This is arguably Bangkok’s best spot for nightlife. Parallel to Khao San Road is Soi Rambuttri, another vibrant street we check out in the nighttime before heading back to our hotel.
Day 7: 2 Floating Markets Explored by Boat, a Train Market & Much More
We are going on a day trip today. Firstly, we are taken to Damnoen Saduak specifically to see its floating market. There we are provided with a guided boat tour followed by a walking tour. Next, we are taken to the Maeklong Railway Market. Whenever a train approaches, the awnings and shopfronts are moved back from the rails. They are put back in place once the train has passed. After that, we will be taken to the nearby Amphawa Floating Market. There we are provided with a guided boat tour.
In the early afternoon, we are taken to the Chatuchak Weekend Market. There we are provided with a guided tour. We hope you will be hungry, as there are a lot of food vendors at this market. Walking distance from the Chatuchak Weekend Market is the Jatujak Green (a.k.a. JJ Green) Market. There we are provided with another guided tour.
Note that today’s excursion may need to be switched to another day because these markets are open usually on the weekends only.
Day 8: Cooking Class, Ox Cart-Riding, Rice Fields, Wildlife & Nightlife
We are going on another day trip today. Firstly, we are taken to Khao Yai National Park. There we are provided with a guided tour. This park is the 3rd largest in Thailand.

Day 9: An Ancient City & Roads Filled with Restaurants, Cafes, Pubs & Bars
We are going on another day trip today. Firstly, we are taken to Ayutthaya Historical/Archaeological Park. There we are provided with a guided tour. The city of Ayutthaya was founded in 1351. It was captured by the Burmese in 1569. Though not pillaged, Ayutthaya lost many valuable and artistic objects. Ayutthaya was the capital of Thailand until its destruction by the Burmese Army in 1767. In 1969, the Fine Arts Department began renovations of the ruins. These renovations became more of a priority after Ayutthaya was declared a historical park in 1976. A part of the park was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1991.
We leave Ayutthaya late afternoon and are taken back to Bangkok, specifically to a thoroughfare called Sukhumvit Road. In this area, we are provided with a guided tour. Sukhumvit Road features clubs, bars, and famous red-light districts. Due to traffic, we are dropped off near Nana Plaza. After checking it out, we take the Bangkok Mass Transit System (a.k.a. BTS Skytrain) to reach another famous red-light district called Soi Cowboy. The BTS Skytrain is then used to visit Thong Lor (a.k.a. Soi Sukhumvit 55). We are picked up in Thong Lor and are then driven to Ekkamai (a.k.a. Soi Sukhumvit 63). Ekkamai is a road filled with restaurants, cafés, pubs, and bars. We then head back to our hotel.
