TOUR 14; South Thailand Holiday : Best holiday + group Tour package
15 Days. From AUD $2,200

 

This South Thailand small group best holiday + group tour package is one of our most relaxed tours. It is the closest thing we have to an actual package holiday at the beach.

So you get that as the main ingredient but you also get a real Thailand experience prior to the seaside.

If you need serious relaxation then this is the group tour for you. Some easy travel days & some better than usual hotels.

Beforehand you will a bit of history, visit a real Thai province without another tourist in sight, (probably the highlight), with many shopping opportunities, friendly locals and great food as usual.

But most of all it has both an off the tourist trail beach as well as a more famous seaside holiday resort.

Start off with a bit of an adventure to the smallest province in the kingdom and finish in some 3 & 4 star accommodation by the seaside in Prachuap Khiri Khan and the better known Hua Hin.

Throw in Bangkok, the River Kwai and Phetchaburi along the way and you still have it all.  A real Thai travel experience plus that relaxing holiday by the beach all rolled into one.

ACCOMMODATION = (4 star hotel x 4 nights, 3 star hotels x 4 nights,  2 star hotels x 5 nights, 1 star guest house x 1 night).

Itinerary

Day 1:

Tonight our  South Thailand best holiday + group tour package will stay in; BANGKOK - Our South Thailand small group tour officially starts when you check into our Bangkok accommodation. A welcoming dinner will be had in the evening.

If you arrive early enough your free time could be spent visiting the maze of stalls at Chatuchak weekend market and/or, Wat Phra Kaew & the Grand Palace, Wat Pho, Wat Arun, MBK or Siam shopping centres.

 Even more interesting would be to take a boat ride with the locals on the Chao Phraya express to some local markets and see daily life in Nonthaburi.

A few of the dozens of other options may be Vimanmek Teak Mansion, Chinatown, Wat Traimit, Jim Thompsons House, Silom or Sukhumvit road shops.

OR? Maybe just lay back by the pool with any jet lag and/or have a traditional Thai Massage. A month in the capital wouldn't allow you enough time to fit it all. D.

Day 2:

BANGKOK - A local operator will take our small group tour by a minivan on a full days tour to the bridge on The River Kwai. En route you will visit a floating market and the Phra Pathom Chedi which is the tallest Buddist monument in the world.

As well as the bridge on the River Kwai in Kanchanaburi you will also visit the Allied War Cemetary and the Death Museum. L.

Day 3:

Tonight our group adventure tour package will stay in; SAMUT SONGKRAM -  A tiny bit of soft adventure today as we take an almost secret little rail line  that will see our  group tour travel by two very local trains, bisected by a river ferry crossing, to the geographically smallest province in the Kingdom, Samut Songkram.

Also known as Mae Klong by the locals. We will be most unlikely to see any other non-locals on this train. A fascinating look at local life both on the train and along the tracks before we arrive at the unique railway market.  B.

Day 4:

SAMUT SONGKRAM - A free day to wander around this authentic Thai provincial capital where it seems once again that the Baktrax philosophy of small is best rings true because the local population must surely be in the running for the friendliest people in this Kingdom of friendly people. Wat Phet Samut Worawihan will give you a look at a local temple.

Return to the station to browse their extremely unique train track market that continually opens and closes as trains come and go.

In the evening you will get the chance to have a multi-course dinner for a few dollars as you meander around the evening street vendors market grazing on the numerous delights on offer. A genuine tour highlight. B.

 

Day 5:

 

Tonight our South Thailand small group holiday +  tour will stay in; PHETCHABURI - A short bus trip sees our group tour in Phetchaburi for a convenient overnight stop. There will still be enough time on arrival to explore this small laid-back town.

 Phetchaburi is known to many Thais as the dessert capital of Thailand. So no doubt you will find one in the evening market 

Phetburi, as it's better known, seems to have a temple on almost every corner. This makes it a great place to stroll around and experience the serenity of local temple life, with very few tourists, if any at all in sight. No meals.

Day 6:

Tonight our South Thailand Holiday small group tour will stay in; PRACHUAP KHIRI KHAN -  SECLUDED BEACH - A short train ride will see our Thailand small group tour in the seaside provincial capital of Prachuap Khiri Khan. We will then transfer to our accommodation right on the beach a short distance out of town for two nights. This is a secluded area where relaxation is the only option. No meals.

 

Day 7:

PRACHUAP KHIRI KHAN - SECLUDED BEACH. - Another day to do more of the same. Grab a book, take a swim or just lay on a towel. Stress out time continues. B.

Google image Ao Manao, (Lemon Bay), Thailand if you need any further convincing.

Day 8:

Tonight our Thailand small group holiday tour will stay in; PRACHUAP KHIRI KHAN -  Back into town today for two nights with the local population and beside a spectacular piece of coastline.

Sip a cocktail poolside with the rugged limestone karst scenery jutting out of the ocean as our backdrop for another way to de-stress. B.

Day 9:

PRACHUAP KHIRI KHAN - Another free day to lay on a beach or continue by the pool after breakfast or perhaps explore this peaceful little seaside town. Bliss continues.

For the more active, Khao Chong Krajok, (mirror tunnel mountain), is a tough walk to the temple on the top of Wat Thammikikarem.  A monkey or two may entertain you along the way before some great town and ocean views.  B.

Day 10:

Tonight our South  Thailand small group holiday tour package will stay in: HUA HIN - A very short bus ride will see our best holiday small group tour in the far more famous seaside destination of Hua Hin.

For those who want a more touristy destination, Hua Hin fits the bill perfectly. The town itself makes for a pleasant stroll and beaches are only a few minutes walk away.

In the evening one of the best night markets for seafood in all Thailand sets up on a daily basis. Many other local & international restaurants also.

Shoppers are catered for here also. B.

 

Day 11:

HUA HIN -  If we must be in a tourist destination then we guess we best do what tourists do. Lay on a beach, eat, drink and be merry.  Hua Hin won't disappoint in this respect. A round of golf can probably be arranged for those wanting to stress out again.  B.

 

Day 12:

HUA HIN - More of the same seaside in tropical climes. Think lobster and the biggest prawns you will ever see for those that want seafood. B.

Day 13:

 HUA HIN - Yet another day to laze, shop, or meander around town or along the beach. More seafood or a pizza perhaps? All tastes catered for here. B.

Day 14:

Tonight our South Thailand small group Holiday Tour will stay in; BANGKOK - By bus or train our small group tour will return to where we began,  Bangkok. A farewell dinner will be had in the evening. No seafood though, or pizza! B. D.

Day 15:

Our  South Thailand best holiday + group tour package is officially over when we check out of our Bangkok accommodation. An airport transfer is included also. B.

We had a great Thailand beach holiday but even better still was the real Thailand experience that few visitors get the chance to see.

AMAZING THAILAND INDEED!
