Thrill in Thailand's top destinations: Phuket beaches, Chiang Mai ziplines, Khao Sok jungle exploration
Discover exotic flora and fauna on night safaris, river canoe trips, and resort balconies
Parents step out for a romantic evening in Chiang Mai while the kids enjoy a movie night
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.
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.
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".
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.
Spend the day on striking Cheow Lan Lake in Khao Sok National Park. Over 100 islands with towering limestone cliffs give the lake its fairytale scenery. 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.
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. Then, in the evening, gather for a festive farewell dinner.
Spend today at your leisure in Phuket and then bid farewell to the group as you transfer to the airport for your departure flight.

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.
