Itinerary

  • Day01

    Arrive in Bangkok

    Welcome to Thailand! Meet your guide at Suvarnabhumi Airport and transfer to the hotel in Bangkok, a Southeast Asian capital city of mind-boggling history, culture, spirituality, and cuisine. After settling in, join the group for a festive welcome evening of royal Thai cuisine and classical dance - a unique cultural experience in a richly decorated pavilion built in the traditional Northern Thai style.

  • Day02

    Discover Bangkok & Fly to Chiang Mai

    In today's entertaining "amazing race," discover Bangkok through locals' eyes by exploring a famous canal and completing various activities that you cannot usually do as a tourist. Each challenge is designed to provide knowledge and insight into Thailand's unique culture - while having fun. Visit one of Bangkok's most famous temples, where another thrilling challenge awaits. Then gear up for the Temple and Craft Challenges. At race's end, transfer to the airport for a flight to Chiang Mai. Tonight, kids enjoy a movie night while parents get a romantic night out.

  • Day03

    Go Ziplining & Take a Night Safari

    Embark on an exciting zipline tour with one of the most established zipline operators in Southeast Asia. Soar through lush, ancient rainforest recognized as the most beautiful in Thailand - and maybe spot wild gibbons! Then spend a lovely evening at the Chiang Mai Night Safari, an open-air zoo on the outskirts of Doi Pui National Park. Have the chance to interact with exotic animals like giraffes and tigers, and to see some other fascinating wildlife close up. A perfect family evening in Chiang Mai!

    Note: The minimum height for children to zipline is 3'3" (100cm). Alternate fun activities will be offered to those who are not yet 3'3".

  • Day04

    Journey South to Khao Sok National Park

    Fly to Phuket, then drive to beautiful Khao Sok National Park - where nature meets adventure! In the afternoon, enjoy a pleasant canoe trip down the river, past towering cliffs and shoals of brightly colored fish, and stop to swim in the cool waters. Your guide paddles while you spot brightly colored birds and monkeys, and maybe a snake or two hanging high up in the trees. This canoe trip was initiated by a group of local villagers interested in sharing and preserving their special environment. The rest of today is free at your leisure.

    • Accommodation: Our Jungle Camp-Khao Sok
    • Activity: 2-3 hours canoeing
    • Transportation: 2-hour flight transfer & 3-hour private van transfer

Gibbons and hornbills are commonly seen in the old-growth jungle trees at the water's edge. Activities include jungle hiking, exploring a cave, swimming, and relaxing at the floating bungalows.

  • Day06

    Chill on the Beach in Phuket

    In the morning, transfer to the hotel in Phuket. The bulk of the day is free at your leisure. Set along the shores of Phuket's Bang Tao Bay, our hotel is located just steps from pristine beaches with warm white sand. Take a stroll on the beach, or enjoy the amazing free-form pool winding through the resort grounds. Enjoy a restful and fun day with your family.

FAQ

  • Who will meet me on arrival?

    Our MT Sobek representative at Bangkok Suvarnabhumi International Airport.

  • Do I need a visa for Thailand?

    No. American citizens do not need a visa for Thailand but must have 6-months validity on their passports.

  • Who will take care of my kids during the romantic dinner on Day 2?

    Our wonderful guides will be watching and having a blast with your kids while you have a romantic evening.

  • Is the beach at Angsana Laguna a private beach?

    No. All beaches in Thailand are public. Angsana Laguna is located on the white sandy beach of Bang Tao, shared only with other Laguna hotels.

  • Will my children be able to see animals during the safari and in Khao Sok National Park?

    Yes, they will be able to see animals during the safari, as it is an open-air zoo. For Khao Sok, the probability is high, but because the animals are wild, it's never certain.

  • I'm concerned about safety. How many guides will accompany our trip?

    On our family adventures with children ages 6 and up, we will have 1 guide per every 4 guests, which is twice as many as a normal MT Sobek trip!
