Thailand is one of the warmest places in Asia, and it has nothing to do with the climate. While the weather is inarguably balmy, perhaps the greatest feature of this sublimely beautiful land of golden temples and pristine beaches is the disarming friendliness of its people. From the busy streets and alleyways of Bangkok to Phuket’s paradisical Andaman shores to the bejungled hills of Koh Phi Phi, warm smiles are every visitor’s constant companion.

Expect to sport an ear-to-ear grin yourself on this trip. It begins near Bangkok, the delightfully chaotic capital, with a full-day exploration of the palaces and monasteries of imperial Ayutthaya. Next, get swept up in the hurly-burly of Bangkok itself on a privately guided walking tour that will introduce you to the Old Town’s many curiosities (including the mysterious Amulet Market) before getting a taste of Thai-influenced Chinese food on a nighttime visit to the city’s 200-year-old Chinatown. Next, jet down to the island of Phuket, the merchant-port-turned-sun-worshipper-haven that claims some of the country’s very best beaches. Here, you’ll take a private tour of the island and discover its diverse blend of cultural influences, roam the hillside towns and fishing villages by bike, dine on all manner of spicy Thai cuisine, and zoom around the islands of Koh Phi Phi on a speedboat. (And should all that action become a little much, you’ll have plenty of time to stretch out and do absolutely nothing on those alluring white-sand beaches.) Thailand is magical. Fall under its spell. Kensington Tours creates private trips from the world’s finest ingredients. Tailor-made with care by your personal Destination Expert, your personalized trip is always a one-of-a-kind experience made just for you. Expert local guidance and 24/7 service come standard. ...

Day 2: Bangkok

Ayutthaya, today a UNESCO World Heritage Site, was the ancient capital of the Kingdom of Siam, which was renamed Thailand in the 20th century. This well-preserved archeological ruin is only 50 miles from Bangkok, and during its heyday it was a bustling commercial center located at the crossroads of India, China and the Malay Peninsula. Your private guide will meet you early in the morning with a stop for breakfast on route, and you will begin your day with a visit to Bang Pa-In, the former summer palace of Thai kings. Continue to Ayutthaya and visit Wat Phanachoeng (Chinese cemetery), Wat Yai Chai Mongkol (Great Monastery of Auspicious Victory) and Wat Mahathat (Monastery of the Great Relic). From Nonthaburi, board your cruise back to Bangkok. Enjoy drinks and a delicious buffet-style Thai lunch on board while enjoying the riverside scenery as you approach the city.

Day 3: Bangkok

Bangkok is a city of contrasts – traditional temples, golden-topped palaces, sprawling expressways, and trendy, upscale malls. The Old Town of Bangkok is brimming with hidden sights best explored on foot early in the morning with your private guide. Walk from the Giant Swing via a public park, built on what used to be prison grounds, wandering through the sois and troks (side streets and alleys) tucked into the Old Town. Enjoy your encounter with wooden houses, guardian spirit signs, fresh markets, and local Thais going about their daily lives. Stop at the city pillar and Amulet Market to learn about ancient superstitions.  The Amulet Market attracts collectors, monks, taxi drivers and people in ‘dangerous professions’ searching for talismans with a hidden meaning, and if they’re lucky, hidden value. End your morning with lunch at Tha Maharaj Branch of the Savoey, a riverside restaurant before returning to your hotel.

This afternoon, enjoy time at leisure to explore at your own pace, or relax at your hotel.

Bangkok’s bustling 200-year-old Chinatown district, also known as Yaowarat, has long been one of Bangkok’s most atmospheric neighborhoods. Wander down Chinatown’s narrow alleys with your private guide as steaming woks entice locals and travelers alike with mouthwatering aromas, and colorful fabrics. Jewelry, exotic herbs and neon lights add to the frenetic pace. Pause for a drink at a local rooftop bar (beer or soft drink included) and enjoy the stunning views of the sunset over the Chao Phraya River. Jump on a tuk tuk and head deep into Chinatown to really discover what the area has to offer, from small stalls with low-to-the-ground plastic chairs to regal restaurants. Sample Chinese dishes with a distinctively Thai spin, including dim sum, dumplings, fresh seafood, local desserts and more. Your private guide will help you navigate the staggering variety of culinary options for you to taste, providing insight into the local area and the distinct culinary traditions. Finish the evening with a drink (beer or soft drink) at an open-air bar, where you can relax in comfort and relish in the hustle and bustle of Chinatown.

Enjoy a private transfer between the airport and your hotel with an English-speaking guide.

Long before Phuket became famous as a beach destination, it was a crossroads for merchant traders and early immigrants hailing from the Arabian Peninsula, China, India and even Portugal. Their contributing culinary traditions have left a lingering mark on Phuket Town that seasoned it with a flavor unique in the world. Walk with your private guide through the bustling streets of the city center, where you can discover the architectural style of 19th century mansions that is typical of the region, known as Sino-Portuguese, has a strong Mediterranean character to it. The best markets come to life early in the morning to feed the locals on their way to work, or in the early evening after the heat of the day has worn off. Your guide will lead you deep into the heart of the markets, where you will sample Sino-Thai delicacies from places only the locals know about. Indulge in a breakfast of dim sum on a small soi behind the fresh market, nibble on curry with roti, and slurp noodles like a local on an unforgettable culinary adventure.

Day 5: Phuket

Small village communities in northern Phuket and its surrounding islands are an amazing opportunity to immerse yourself in the Thai island lifestyle and offer quieter beaches to relax on for the day. This morning, your English-speaking guide will take you by private vehicle to the north of Phuket to Bang Rong pier, your jumping off point for neighboring islands. Visit the Muslim fishing community in Bang Rong before boarding a private long-tailed boat to the very small island of Koh Naka. Enjoy the serenity of scenic Phang Nga Bay from the island, where you have time to swim or enjoy the sun. Island hop to neighboring Koh Yao Noi and visit Khun Mina, a charming host, and expert cook. In the comfort and privacy of her home, learn how to make classic Thai dishes such as Thai curry, stir-fry, and a local spicy salad.

  • Tin T — June 22, 2019 — Asia

    The trip was fantastic, well planned, great tour guys. That was a trip of a lifetime and Kensington Tours had done an exceptional well in organizing from the fly to Japan, Hong Kong, Bali & Singapore to the hotels, daily tours with the level of details and places we wouldn't have known where to go. Can't wait for Kensington Tours to organize our 3rd trip in the near future!

  • Ann M — June 20, 2019 — Asia

    Asia Expert Yuki Ng did an amazing job of setting up our trip. She totally understood what we wanted to see and do. My husband, 17-year-old grandson and I spent a week in Seoul in June of 2019. Miriam, also known as CJ, our local guide in Seoul, was fantastic. She was very knowledgeable, friendly and engaging. We totally enjoyed our time with her. We learned so much about the history and culture of Korea and with her expert guidance, we were introduced to many different and delicious Korean foods. Our lunches with her were memorable not only for the variety of restaurants and dishes that we sampled but also for the stimulating and pleasant conversations we shared while eating. She also made several suggestions for things to do in the evening that added to our enjoyment of the city. We were truly fortunate to have Miriam as our guide. Our driver Mr. Jo was also great. He calmly and expertly navigated the congested streets of Seoul and always greeted us with a smile and a pleasant ‘good morning.’ We had not been to Seoul before this trip. We found it to be vibrant, beautiful, and very clean. The people were friendly and helpful. Our accommodations were beyond what we expected. We had a wonderful time in Seoul. We could not have been more pleased.

  • Anne H — May 28, 2019 — Asia

    My trip was a dream come true! From the time I landed in Beijing to the time I landed back to the US, everything was perfect. I traveled alone, but felt very safe and very well taken care of by the guides and drivers I had in the different cities and countries I visited. I learned so much about the culture and heritage of the Chinese, Tibetan and the Nepalese people. It was worth every penny I spend and much more!

  • Jackie M — March 30, 2019 — Asia

    I loved it all. Thanks especially to our guide Abit, in Kathmandu, Norenda, in Pokhara, and Min, in the Annapurna region, for being fabulous people. Thanks again for also referring us to Bahari Lodge in Chitwan National park. By far, that was the best place I've ever stayed in all of my international travels: they always had a surprise in store for us, that was awesome. They let us spend as much time as we wanted with the elephants, no rush, and sent elephants to come and play with us when we merely mentioned that we loved them. A great thank you to our naturalis Krishna at Bahari Lodge in Chitwan. All fantastic people who were great with tourists like us. We also enjoyed Temple Tree Resort very much.

  • Reginald B — April 14, 2019 — Asia

    This was a GREAT tour to Thailand! It exceeded my expectations in many ways (ie. itinerary, flexibility, and customer service). I would recommend this tour and Kensington Tours to family and friends. I will definitely use Kensington Tours for my future travel plans. My destination expert was Ms. Forkan. She expertly tailored my experience to my needs and wants. She filled in all the "unknowns" and ensured a safe, smooth trip/tour. Her professionalism and support was a 10/10. Thank you Ms. Forkan for designing this trip of a lifetime!

  • Ann L — June 05, 2019 — Asia

    Our guides made our whole trip - we will remember them as much as China itself. Jerry immediately put us at ease and made us feel like his best friends - he was sincere and authentic and open. Katy (in Chengdu) had great energy and showed us how people really live. Even though she must see the pandas every other day of her life, she still seemed to genuinely LOVE seeing them. (And, later, when we discovered we'd left valuables in the safe at our hotel, she went WAY above and beyond to take care of things - even after we were already in Shanghai!). Nancy (in Shanghai) was amazing - we truly enjoyed our time with her and she took us to markets and encouraged us to take our time at the places that interested us most. When we'd seen enough temples, our guides communicated with each other to rearrange our tours in coming destinations. We felt like we were on the food tour of China - the meals were wonderful, and it was - really - TOO MUCH FOOD! No part of our day was wasted, but if we wanted to start later or call it a night sooner, plans were easily rearranged. We would absolutely go with Kensington again!

  • Sandra S — February 09, 2019 — Asia

    We had a really interesting trip and your team made it all so easy. Our guides were not only informative, but they took very good care of us. They kept us on schedule with all the city transfers, made the Visa process so quick and introduced us to some of the things they loved about their cities as well as the scheduled sites. There were so many highlights on this trip, but I was especially wowed by the cruise on Ha Long Bay. Our guide in Hanoi went above and beyond on my birthday and arrived to pick us up with some beautiful orchids and a lovely gift. We were very happy with all our accommodations as well.

  • Daryl H. — January 26, 2019 — Asia

    I was pleasantly surprised and pleased with the superb attention to detail in fulfilling my requests and my dreams

  • Laura E. — January 08, 2019 — Asia

    One of the benefits was that the guides were very flexible and suggested and accommodated changes to plans based on the weather and other circumstances. They all said they could do this when working with Kensington because Kensington supported it and empowered them with this flexibility. A big advantage in making the trip perfect!

  • Ajitkumar P. — January 04, 2019 — Asia

    The whole trip was well organized and we have recommended using Kensington to our friends.
