Thailand North to South adventure
bee-white

Thailand North to South adventure

Peddle back in time with the visit of historical Thailand. Beginning at Chiang Mai, escape the city’s traffic to Cowboy Town of Lampang where horses and carriages are still used as a means of transport. Pass through some of the most secluded and beautiful roads in Thailand and observe how the locals live. Stop by the historical Siamese capital of Ayutthaya before arriving at busy Bangkok. Finally, you will head south from the bright lights and skyscrapers of Bangkok to the southern tropical island of Phuket.

Chiang Mai

Chiang Mai is a land of misty mountains and colourful hill tribes, a playground for seasoned travellers, a paradise for shoppers and a delight for adventurers. 

Lampang

Lampang is one of the Lanna civilizations that is no less attractive than any other province in Northern Thailand. Unique identity to impress visitors are temples and houses are filled with valuable architecture, horse carriage, pottery and Lampang people who have a simple lifestyle and warm hearts. Lampang people also keep the traditions that traditionally inherited the ancient. Before tourists may think that Lampang is a small town and they just pass by. But, it is not right. People who have come to visit all found that Lampang is above expectations. It is a trip that makes your heart smile and is friendly for your pocket. 

Uttaradit

Uttaradit province might remind people of the legends about the secret town. Currently, the city arch has become one of the most popular landmarks in the province and still has the important stone pillars as well as well-known products such as candy, candlelight, Langsat, Longan and Long Lab Lae - Lin Lablae Durian. In addition, Uttaradit Province also has many other interesting places to explore.

Sukhothai

A UNESCO World Heritage City, Sukhothai houses a vast number of historical sites and temple ruins. Sukhothai sees a smaller number of visitors than its more popular counterpart Ayutthaya. Sukhothai’s historical sites, however, are by no means less splendid. Most historically significant temple ruins are housed inside the Sukhothai Historical Park and nearby Si Satchanalai Historical Park. Apart from visiting the historical sites, Sukhothai itself is a quiet rural city where you can still relish the charms of Thailand’s rustic lifestyle.

Kamphaeng Phet

Kamphaeng Phet, located halfway between Bangkok and Chiang Mai, is one of Thailand's more pleasant provincial capitals. It doesn't see many foreign visitors, despite being one of Thailand's most historic towns. The city helped to protect the Sukhothai and, later, Ayuthaya kingdoms against attacks from Myanmar or Lanna. Parts of the wall can still be seen today, as can the impressive ruins of several religious structures. The modern city still has many traditional wooden houses and stretches along a shallow section of the Mae Nam Ping.

Nakhon Sawan

Nakron Sawan, or Paknam Pho, is an important city where four streams, the Ping, Wang, Yom and Nan meet to form the Chao Praya River and is the Gateway to the Northern Region, Nakhon Sawan has many scenic attractions and is noted for its large marsh area "Bung Boraphet" which abounds with "Sua" fish, a special delicacy of the Thai people.

Ayutthaya

This once-prosperous Siamese trade and political capital goes down as the most glorious as well as the most devastated city in Thai history. Wandering through endless ancient ruin sites, you can’t help but feel humbled by the ingenuity of the Ayodha craftsmen and their powerful spiritual beliefs. Apart from touring Ayutthaya’s history and temples, your visit can be filled with something more recent in terms of the cultural contexts. Ayutthaya also has its own backpacker strip, on Naresuan Soi 1 and Soi 2, where you can find a whole host of affordable western food outlets and bike rental businesses.

Bangkok

Bangkok is one of those cities that never gets old. No matter how many times you’ve been, you’ll always discover something new and exciting to see, do, and eat. It’s got a near perfect mix of food, culture, nightlife, shopping, and affordability that’s unmatched anywhere in Southeast Asia.

Hua Hin

Thailand’s original beach resort is no palm-fringed castaway island and arguably is the better for it. Instead, Hua Hin is a refreshing mix of city and sea with lively markets, good golf courses and water parks, excellent accommodation and an ambience that just keeps getting more hip and cosmopolitan. In fact, many visitors never even step foot on the sand.

Prachuap Khiri Khan

Prachuap Khiri Khan is the province occupying Thailand’s narrowest possession on the Isthmus of Kra, the land bridge connecting the Malay Peninsula with mainland Asia. About 100 kilometres to the north of Prachuap Khiri Khan is Hua Hin, Thailand’s first Beach resort, which is renowned for world-class golf and spa resorts. Between Hua Hin and Prachuap Khiri Khan are Pran Buri, where there are many boutique resorts, and Khao Sam Roi Yot national park, which features soaring peaks, numerous caves and exotic bird lives.

Chum Phon

With more than 200 kilometres of coastline featuring numerous unspoiled beaches, Chumphon is an ideal destination for those who are seeking relaxation in a natural and quiet atmosphere and wish to enjoy such activities as sunbathing, swimming, yachting, paragliding, diving, and Snorkelling.

Surat Thani

Known in Thai as ‘City of Good People’, Surat Thani was once the seat of the ancient Srivijaya empire. Today, this typical Thai town is a busy transport hub moving cargo and people around the country. It's a great stop if you enjoy real Thai working cities, good southern style street food and nosing around colourful Chinese temples and Chinese shopfronts.

Phuket

Phuket is among the world’s finest beach destinations, with fine white sands, nodding palm trees, glittering seas and lively towns. It has something for a wide array of tastes and budgets, with hundreds of hotels to choose from, an eclectic choice of dining and plenty of partying options. Aside from visiting the fantastic attractions of Thailand’s biggest island, you can take an exhilarating speedboat trip to the many nearby tropical islands.

Northern & Southern coast adventure

Thailand has long been a friendly destination with its fascinating culture and delicious food. This route is packed full of activities and experiences to give you an insight into traditional Thai life. Stay in raft houses on the River Kwai, walk through dense rainforests, put culinary skills to the test and relax on Thailand's tropical beaches.

Bangkok

Bangkok is one of those cities that never gets old. No matter how many times you’ve been, you’ll always discover something new and exciting to see, do, and eat. It’s got a near perfect mix of food, culture, nightlife, shopping, and affordability that’s unmatched anywhere in Southeast Asia.

Chiang Rai

Chiang Rai City remains a sleepy provincial town with a pleasant atmosphere. Compared to its sister town Chiang Mai, it has a more relaxed and down-to-earth feel but is never short on historical and cultural attractions of its own. Founded in 1262 as the capital of the Mengrai Dynasty, after Chiang Saen, today the city retains a strong Lanna identity, mostly through its impressive collection of temples, art, language, cuisine and music. 

Chiang Mai

Chiang Mai is a land of misty mountains and colourful hill tribes, a playground for seasoned travellers, a paradise for shoppers and a delight for adventurers. 

Surat Thani

Known in Thai as ‘City of Good People’, Surat Thani was once the seat of the ancient Srivijaya empire. Today, this typical Thai town is a busy transport hub moving cargo and people around the country. It's a great stop if you enjoy real Thai working cities, good southern style street food and nosing around colourful Chinese temples and Chinese shopfronts.

Koh Samui

Koh Samui (Samui Island) is a cosmopolitan melting pot, attracting budget travellers staying for a month or two in simple beachside bungalows, to the wealthiest holidaymakers dropping in for a weekend at one of the many luxury resort or villa on the many white sand beaches of Koh Samui.

Central Thailand & Isaan Region
bee-white

Central Thailand & Isaan Region

Step back in time and discover a Thailand steeped in history and oozing with charm. Get off the tourist trail with an overland adventure through Thailand’s Isaan & old Siam province. Leave the frantic energy of Bangkok behind and travel through national parks, former capitals and rural villages. Experience the slower pace of life in the countryside and embrace the rich traditions of Thailand. Marvel at prehistoric wall paintings, come face-to-face with Asian elephants, see awe-inspiring temples, and be enchanted by the rich culture of the Isaan & old Siam people.

Bangkok

Bangkok is one of those cities that never gets old. No matter how many times you’ve been, you’ll always discover something new and exciting to see, do, and eat. It’s got a near perfect mix of food, culture, nightlife, shopping, and affordability that’s unmatched anywhere in Southeast Asia.

Buriram

Buriram (which literally means City of Happiness) is both the name of the city and the province that lies in the northern Khmer region or the northeastern part of Thailand. While the town is a friendly place, it does still have a rural, agricultural vibe to it. The province, on the other hand, holds a good number of Thailand’s must-see Khmer relics, such as Phanom Rung.

Surin

Surin, town, east-central Thailand. The town is located on the railway between Nakhon Ratchasima and Ubon Ratchathani and is a trade and production centre for rice, lacquerware, and silk. It has an agricultural college and attracts tourists with its annual Elephant Round-Up. 

Ubon Ratchathani 

Despite being one of the major cities in Isan (Northeastern Thailand), Ubon Ratchathani doesn’t get enough credit for its raw beauty. Located along the Mekong and sharing its border with Laos, Ubon Ratchathani possesses a very pleasant kind of eccentricity that’s hard to put into words. Landlocked Isan's very own sandy beaches, prehistoric cave paintings, 3,000-something natural sandstone cliffs and burrows, and even glow-in-the-dark temple – it’s hard to imagine ever running out of things to do in Ubon Ratchathani.

Nakhon Phanom

The mighty Mekong River runs past the Thai town of Nakhon Phanom, and it’s safe to say the river contributes much of this out-of-the-way town’s magic. Visitors to Thailand looking to get away from its overcrowded beaches and stuffy cities only need to go north to the Isan region, a short plane hop from the capital, to this riverside settlement bordering Thakhek in Laos. It’s a gathering point for Isan’s Tai minority communities; a crossroads for Thai, Lao, and Vietnamese cultures (helped along by the brand-spanking new bridge linking Thailand and Laos); and a low-key but increasingly popular stop for culture and history seekers.

Nong Khai

Sitting on the banks of the Mekong, just across from Vientiane in Laos, Nong Khai has been a hit with travellers for years. Its popularity is about more than just its proximity to Vientiane and its bounty of banana pancakes, though. Seduced by its dreamy pink sunsets and sluggish pace of life, many visitors who mean to stay one night end up bedding down for many more.

Loei

Loei is refreshingly well off the beaten track, and so far it has successfully guarded its scenic treasures and small city of approximately 30000 people from coach loads of baseball-capped tourists. This province has kept its charm, and only a tiny handful find their way to this mountainous little bijou. Although geologically akin to Northern Thailand, it is culturally on the cusp of Isan, the expansive northeastern part of the Land of Smiles, which is so delightfully distinctive. 

Sukhothai

A UNESCO World Heritage City, Sukhothai houses a vast number of historical sites and temple ruins. Sukhothai sees a smaller number of visitors than its more popular counterpart Ayutthaya. Sukhothai’s historical sites, however, are by no means less splendid. Most historically significant temple ruins are housed inside the Sukhothai Historical Park and nearby Si Satchanalai Historical Park. Apart from visiting the historical sites, Sukhothai itself is a quiet rural city where you can still relish the charms of Thailand’s rustic lifestyle.

Uthai Thani

Uthai Thani is a province abundant in natural resources, such as forests and wildlife. Huai Kha Khaeng Wildlife Reserve was proclaimed a natural UNESCO World Heritage Site on 13 December 1991. The reserve has jungles, forests, plains, many streams, and most importantly, number of rare and endangered animals. Uthai Thani is a province with relatively unspoiled natural tourist destinations. Visitors can see varying local lifestyles, such as the lives of raft residents on Sakae Krang River, a waterway that aided the birth of the province and which has been a lifeline for its people since ancient times. 

Kanchanaburi

While it’s tempting to dramatise Kanchanaburi’s World War II history, there is in fact so much more to the city than the popular trios: Death Railway, Bridge over the River Kwae (Kwai) and the Allied War Cemetery. The city offers a range of delightful diversions, whether bamboo rafting journeys along the River Kwae, Khmer temple ruins tour, or a day out shopping at the gemstone village. The scenic riverside area sets the stage for a leisurely stroll but can also become loud at night due to music from karaoke bars and discos.

The Rocket Festival (Boun Bang Fai) is a merit-making ceremony traditionally practiced by ethnic Lao people near the beginning of the wet season in numerous villages and municipalities, in the regions of Northeastern Thailand and Laos. Celebrations typically include preliminary music and dance performances, competitive processions of floats, dancers and musicians on the second day, and culminating on the third day in competitive firings of home-made rockets. Local participants and sponsors use the occasion to enhance their social prestige, as is customary in traditional Buddhist folk festivals throughout Southeast Asia.

The festival in Thailand also includes special programs and specific local patterns like Bung Fai (Parade dance) and a Beautiful Bung Fai float such as Yasothon the third weekend of May, and continues Suwannaphum District, Roi Et on the first weekend of June, Phanom Phrai District Roi Et during the full moon of the seventh month in Lunar year's calendar each year. The Bung Fai festival is not only found in Isan or Northeasthern Thailand and North Thailand and Laos, but also in Amphoe Sukhirin, Narathiwat.

Bangkok, 22 April, 2022 – Thailand’s Centre for COVID-19 Situation Administration (CCSA) today approved the lifting of the RT-PCR testing requirement for international arrivals beginning 1 May, 2022, and introduced two new entry schemes specifically customised for vaccinated and unvaccinated travellers.

...more

The Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration on Friday resolved to discontinue the requirement that visitors pass a pre-travel Covid-19 test, from April 1, but testing on arrival will continue.

The change in procedure was announced by CCSA spokesman Taweesilp Visanuyothin.

He said the requirement for pre-travel tests would end for all visitors, whether arriving by  Test & Go, Sandbox or quarantine channels.

People who enter the country through Test & Go or Sandbox programmes would be given an RT-PCR test on arrival, and be required to perform an antigen self-test on day 5 after arrival, monitored at their hotel.

Sandbox visitors would remain in their reception areas for five days. Visitors in the quarantine scheme, including people caught sneaking in, would be kept in isolation for five days and have an RT-PCR test on day 4 or 5 after arrival.

The CCSA would continue to require visitors to have Covid-19 insurance coverage of at least US$20,000 but was likely to reduce it later, Dr Taweesilp said.

Also, from April 1 people would be able to arrive by land through Satun province in the South, in addition to current Nong Khai, Udon Thani and Songkhla.

Arrivals by sea would be allowed through Surat Thani ports, in addition to the present Phuket and Chon Buri.

By air, the reopening would include Hat Yai airport in addition to the current Suvarnabhumi, Don Mueang, Phuket, Krabi, Samui, Chiang Mai and U-tapao airports.

The CCSA hoped to expand the reopening by air to all airports, depending on their readiness, in May, Dr Taweesilp said.
