Explore Thailand like an insider, navigating hidden Bangkok, trekking in an undiscovered National Park, eating your way through Chiang Mai, and lounging on the beaches of an out-of-the-way island in the South.

Bangkok is a city best seen with locals, and from the water. Take off from the pier on your private city tour by long tail boat, visiting all of the must see temples. Walk the secret alleyways of the city’s 200 year old China town, where a plethora of delicacies await. Learn ancient superstitions, and view historic houses squeezed amid towering skyscrapers, elements that dominated Bangkok’s past.

Khao Yai National Park, just a few hours from the city, is packed full of exotic wildlife and thundering waterfalls. Enjoy a few nights in your private villa at an isolated & luxurious resort, and spend a day trekking the park with your own private guide. If you’re lucky you may spot wild elephants, deer, and Asian black bears.

Fly North to Thailand’s culinary and cultural capital, Chiang Mai. Spend a day with a traditional Lanna family, selecting ingredients from their garden, and learning the art of Thai cuisine. Visit a small village where horse-drawn carts are still a preferred method of transportation. ... Show More »

Day 2: Bangkok

Bangkok is a city of contrasts - Buddhist temples, golden topped palaces, trendy sky bars, and traditional Thai living along the waterways - called khlongs - offering marvelous photo opportunities. This morning, head with your private guide to the historic center of Bangkok and start your day at Wat Suthat. Few visitors come to this temple early, so much the better to enjoy the monks melodic chanting ritual. It’s an incredible sensory experience. Then, a walk to Wat Pho (famous for its 141-foot-long reclining Buddha) takes you through small alleys with wooden houses, guardian spirit signs and lively fruit and flower markets. Pause at Lak Muang, Bangkok’s city pillar, well worth a five-minute detour before heading to the iconic Grand Palace and the adjacent Wat Phra Kaew, the Temple of the Emerald Buddha. By now it’s time to enjoy a luxurious lunch and take in the scenic views at the Mandarin Oriental hotel's riverside restaurant, Sala Rim Nim and experience the mid-day bustling atmosphere of the lively Chao River. But you haven’t really arrived in Bangkok until you get out onto the river itself on a Long Tail Boat ride. So, after lunch, come and explore the khlongs and be amazed by the constantly changing sights, from Thai wooden houses on stilts to the many boats with sellers offering everything from fruit to souvenirs. Your day ends with a visit to Wat Arun, the Temple of Dawn. Unique from the rest of Bangkok’s temples, its stunning design is made up of colorfully decorated spires and looks to stand guard over the river. Your guide can take you back to your hotel, or you might decide to stay and watch the sunset over Wat Arun from one of the rooftop bars across the river.

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 a luxurious take in the scenic views at the Mandarin Oriental hotel's riverside restaurant, Sala Rim Nim and experience the mid-day bustling atmosphere of the lively Chao River before returning to 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.

Northern Thailand’s culinary traditions are unique from Bangkok’s options, earning Chiang Mai the international distinction of being a “foodie city” – with mouthwatering options available from neighboring Laos and Myanmar contributing to its identity. Venture into the vibrant markets of Somphret and Warorot with your private guide to start exploring this delicious food scene. Continue to smaller, lesser known markets bustling with locals looking for the perfect evening snack (opening days may vary depending on seasons). Your guide will help you taste local snacks that will appeal to a range of palates as you stroll through the city’s main night market.

    Used Kensington Tours to book my honeymoon in the foreign speaking country of Thailand. It was great to not have to worry about transportation or accommodation. Our itinerary was amazing but the best part was probably our English speaking guides. We had three separate guides and each of them became like close friend to us. The travel was long but I wouldn't trade our experience in Thailand for anything.

    I went to private tour w Kensington to Japan for 3 weeks last month. It was incredible. My daughter was studying in Niigata so I wanted her to hook up with me periodically throughout my tour to see all the highlights of Japan. It worked out perfectly. I'd personally like to thank Adam Watkins who was incredible with detail, kindness and professionalism. The guide selection was a perfect fit. I cannot say enough about my and my daughter's experience with Kensington Tours. A trip of a lifetime.
