Bangkok is an adventure...hectic pace, smiling crowds, the wonderful disorder of it’s geography, the constant mix of old and new, the heady night-life and the amazing culinary scene! That’s not where the adventure stops though, after Bangkok a weeks well earned relaxation is in order and Hua Hin is just a couple of hours drive away!
A throwback to Thailand’s past, Bangkok immerses you in all things traditional, at all times. There’s the dining – with authentic street food the way to go. There are the sights – with almost infinite ancient temples, palaces, and markets. And there’s the social scene, from t’ai chi in the park to its famous national anthem broadcasts.

Bangkok’s beauty lies in its diversity. It brings you serenity, with river cruises in converted rice barges, and Thai massages. It brings you the thrills of bartering in markets, travelling by tuk-tuk, and soaking up Khao San Road’s night scene. And it brings you authenticity at sights like Jim Thompson House and its countless gold-encrusted temples. Enjoy a 3-night stay.
Private car road transfer to Hua Hin (approximately 2 hours).
Thailand’s original beach resort, this once sleepy fishing village soon gained notoriety after the royal family built summer palaces here. And, when you holiday where royalty do, you’re guaranteed the fabulous trappings of high society. Today, sea and city converge here, along with all the pleasures of a beach retreat and all the buzz of urban life.
Most Hua Hin holidaymakers start on its miles of beach, before visiting its royal palaces, Klai Kangwon and Mrigadayavan – statements of regal riches. But beside the elite’s golfing and wine tasting, you’ll still find authentic Thailand within its night markets, Monkey Island, the multi-tiered Pala-U waterfall, and Khao Luang Cave’s Buddha statues (said to number around 170). Enjoy an 8-night stay.
Fly home to the UK with Qatar Airways.
