BANGKOK GETAWAY

October 25, 2020 to November 3, 2020

This 8-night Thailand vacation combines the bustle of Bangkok with the charming beachside idylls of Phuket.

Your Thailand vacation begins in Bangkok, the capital of Thailand and the most-visited city on the planet. Upon immediate arrival, you’ll realize that Bangkok is a city of contrasts. Massive skyscrapers sit beside wooden huts. Luxury malls jostle for baht alongside bustling farmers' markets. No one side of Bangkok is all-defining; it takes both to capture what makes this city so invigorating. You'll see landmarks like Wat Pho and the Grand Palace.

From Bangkok, continue your Thailand vacation by zipping down to Phuket, the popular beach resort on the Andaman Sea. With its white-sand beaches, lush mountains, and magnificent coves, it’s no wonder that Phuket is one of the world’s most famous beach getaways. Staying in one of the pampering resorts on the island, you’ll have multiple days to enjoy the gorgeous climate and lazy atmosphere. Swim in the warm waters of the Andaman or take a guided walk to spot animals and fascinating plants in the nearby wilderness. Relax with a good book on the beach or engage in some wellness detox at the many health spas in the area.

This Thailand vacation combines the bustle of the big city with the relaxing tempo of the beach. It’s a great way to engage with two essential parts of Thai culture.
