The Spirit of the Journey

A holiday dedicated to savour the beauty of the land of smiles. Exciting itineraries and a lot of relax for an unforgettable trip among lush jungles and tropical beaches. Three destinations: Bangkok with its golden temples, mountainous skyscrapers, colorful markets and exciting nightlife; Chiang Mai, ancient capital of the Lanna-Thai kingdom, immersed among hills and lush vegetations and rich in culture and ethnical minorities; and Phuket, in a stunning private infinity pool villa overlooking the Andaman Sea nestled on the cliff right above the golden sands of Karon beach.

Destination Bangkok

Bangkok Royal palaceSpread over the flat Chao Phraya river plain, Bangkok can appear like an inextricable mass of canals, urban skyscrapers, old shophouse communities and modern high rise malls.

Delve in though and you'll discover an exciting metropolis rich of life and culture. Go at the discovery of this amazing city! Glimpse at the traditional Thai way of life along the canals of Bangkok; step back in time admiring the Royal Palace; get lost in one of the countless floating markets; sample some of the best Thai food.

We'll provide you with an Inside track agenda to have you discover the best this vibrant and exciting city has to offer.

The Accommodation

Ariyasom VillaOur chauffeur will wait for you at the exit gate of Bangkok Airport to ensure hassle free transportation to the Ariyasom Villa. This little gem, right in the middle of bustling Bangkok, is an oasis of peace and tranquillity.

The Villa was built in 1942 and is still in the hands of the original family who built it. An intimate and luxurious boutique accommodation, Ariyasom Villa is superbly designed and decorated around the theme of 1940's and 1950's Bangkok but with all the modern facilities and amenities.

Check in and be shown to your executive deluxe room, spacious and exquisitely decorated, a dream of comfort reminiscent of another epoch.

The Activities

Luxury Dinner CruiseWe will provide you with an insight track agenda listing all the major attractions in the city - to discover Bangkok at your leisure - as well as all our little "secret" treasures: bars, restaurants, shops and locations that you won't find on normal guides. One of the activities we would like to propose you is a romantic dinner cruise on the river. Many are the operators providing dinner and cruise on the Chao Phrava River, but only our do it on a converted rice barge, refurbished as a luxurious floating restaurant serving gourmet Thai delicacies. Enjoy! Another "not to be missed" will be to visit the well renowed floating markets. Among the most colorful and authentic attractions of Bangkok surroundings, floating markets appeal to Bangkokians and tourists alike thanks to the unique atmosphere and fantastic food that can be found here. TodayFloating Market Bangkok Classy Frontiers would like to lead you in a bycicle exploration of the Mae Klong Delta area at Damnoen Nam Saduak floating market, the biggest and most colourful in Thailand. Starting with a long tail boat ride to a riverside temple, this itinerary will take you through coconut, aloe vera plantations and fruit orchards. Riding quiet back roads and jeep trails you'll stop to visit temples and appreciate the countryside. You'll ride as a group, with an experienced cycle guide setting a gentle pace. Stopping often to visit points of interest, you will also have the opportunity to sample some of the local food as "aperitif" before having a Thai lunch at a riverside restaurant on the banks of the Mae Klong River. A support vehicle will always follow close behind to provide provisions or a lift should you be tired of cycling. Our guides are knowledgeable on the local area and customs and explain the history, culture and local way-of-life each time you'll stop.

Second Stop: Chiang Mai, the Maerim Valley & the Sukantara

Sukantara Cascade ResortOne of the most beautiful resort/destination in the north of Thailand, the Sukantara is a fairy tale place, awarded as the "Best Paradise Resorts in Thailand" and among the best 5 cascade resorts worldwide. This fantastic eco-resort located in the lush Mae Rim Valley has hosted famous guests like Angelina Jolie and charms whoever is so lucky to spend some time here. Treat yourself to 2 nights in a Luxury Tent, a real camping tent but incredibly more luxurious than a 5 star hotel room. You can lounge on the cottage veranda, lulled by the sounds of bubbling water and wild bird calls from the jungle across the stream. You can have a traditional Kantoke dinner by the waterfall prepared using Grandma's recipes. You can indulge yourself to some of the treatments of the renowned Chiida Spa (Chiida Waterfall Therapy sounding good?). One popular choice for eco lovers is to cross the stream by the swinging bridge at the resort and hike further just one kilometre to "Tad Mok" national waterfall and two kilometres for the Karen village or to visit some of the Elephant Parks that are not far from here. The perfect place to wake up to the sounds of the jungle, relax to the beautiful view of running water, and do some fantastic nature exploring. When you'll check out from the Sukantara our driver will be waiting for you to provide swift transfer to Chiang Mai city.

Chiang Mai

Chiang Mai is not only a lovely holiday destination in itself but also the perfect starting point to explore the north of Thailand: Doi Suthep National Park and its golden, sacred temple; the beautiful Ma Sa Valley, rich of scenic attraction, waterfalls, farms and rivers; hill tribe villages; the virgin forests of Mae Hong Son; and Pai - with its hot springs, rice fields and lovely lazy rivers - one of Thailand 'hippiest' hang-outs where artists mix with musicians and tourists.

Last Stop: Phuket

Phuket The BeachesThailand's largest, and probably best-known island, Phuket is nestled in the balmy waters of the Andaman Sea on Thailand's Indian Ocean coastline, 862 kilometres south of Bangkok. Historically "capital" of tin mines and rubber plantation, and one of the major trading routes between India and China, the island enjoys a rich and colourful history whose testimony is still preserved in the fascinating Sino-Portuguese architecture of Phuket Town. Its spectacular sceneries, stunning tropical sunsets and warm blue sea have made this island a major tourist destination and home to some of the most exclusive and luxurious hotels in South-East Asia. Today the traveller will find here an unbeatable combination of superb hospitality, perfect silky soft white palm-lined beaches, peaceful environment, international golf courses, luxurious spas, and a great selection of activities and excursions to choose from.

The Activities | 1. Phi Phi Discovery

Phi PhiVisit the beautiful Phi Phi archipelago - one that is formed from a section of the biggest coral reef in the world! We are delighted to offer you one day speedboat trip to the world-famous Phi Phi Islands, a trip that many guests say to be the "highlight of their holiday". Places we like to visit in a day include: Maya Bay, perhaps the most photographed beach in the world - this was the setting for the movie "The Beach"; Monkey Beach, a white soft sand beach home to monkeys that live in the jungle clad limestone cliffs towering above; Pileh Lagoon, where you can jump off the boat and into crystal clear waters; Koh Yoong, a quiet spot and one of our favourite for snorkelling, with amazing coral and marine life; Koh Naka, the last stop of the day, with white sand so smooth it squeaks when you walk on it! The group will be small, so you can enjoy the most of your day. Lunch will be served at a small locally-owned Thai food restaurant on the quiet end of a lovely beach on Phi Phi Don Island. On the boat there will be also fresh fruits and Thai and western snacks available. The itinerary on the day may change depending on the tides, other tour boats and weather conditions.

2. Sailing and Snorkeling in Koh Lone and Coral Island

Snorkel Excursion Koh Lone and Coral IslandDecember is the perfect season to visit all the Andaman coast as the waters become really crystal clear. But for this reason some of the best activities/places to visit can be crowded at "peak hours". This is why we'd suggest you to board a more private sailing boat for a tour to Phuket' s nearby islets Koh Lone and Coral Island. In the morning Koh Lone is almost unbeaten by tourists, which make it a lovely place to stop by, have a refreshing bath and start your snorkeling session. In the afternoon it' s time to head to Coral island, which feature 2 nice white sandy beaches with an amazing variety of marine life. You can snorkel the beautiful coral reefs here or just relax on the beach in the warm but breezy hours that precede the sunset while being away from the join-in tours crowds. Then, skim back over the ocean to return to Phuket.

3. Paddling in Phang Nga Bay

Phang Nga BayCome aboard with us to enjoy one of the best scenery in the world: the Phang Nga Bay.
Beautiful limestone formations rising straight up out of the sea... and better still, going ashore to explore the hidden lagoons (hongs) and caves.
Our guides will paddle you into Phang Nga bay's caves, Hongs, and stunning islands - with only two guests in each custom-designed kayak so to give you plenty of room for exploring at your leisure.
Do not forget some sunscreen, your camera, flip-flops and swimwear - Phang Nga bay is gorgeous, lay back and enjoy it from a different perspective.

Day 15

All too soon is time to say good bye. We hope that you enjoyed your holiday with our proposals and arrangements. Classy Frontiers chauffeur will pick you up at the hotel to provide swift transfer to the airport. Catch your Phuket - Bangkok flight before flying back home with the airline of your choice.
