Day 3: Bangkok
Immersion into this ancient culture begins with a city tour visiting three of the most unusual Buddhist temples: Wat Trimitr with its invaluable Golden Buddha; Wat Po, with its colossal Reclining Buddha; and the Chedis of the Kings. At the Grand Palace, former residence of the Kings and Thailand 's most sacred site, admire the beautiful architecture and intricate detail. See several palaces, each significant in its own right: the Funeral Palace, the Reception Palace, the Throne Hall, the Coronation Hall and the Temple of the Emerald Buddha. Having explored this landmark of the Thai Kingdom, return to the hotel for an afternoon and evening at leisure. Meal: B

Day 4: Bangkok
Today is about exploring local markets. Begin with an excursion to a floating market, a true Thai phenomenon. Colorfully clad merchants paddle boats along narrow canals, same as they did in the ancient times of the Siam Kingdom. See the traditional way of buying and selling fruits, vegetables and other goods and how the locals use the boats in everyday life. Amongst the hubbub of activity, visitors have the chance to bargain for handicraft items in the area. A visit to the rural Maeklong Railway Market is truly something to witness as a trains roll right through the center of the market, with inches to spare! This evening, it 's time for an eating adventure on a food tour via the iconic 3-wheel Tuk Tuk! Cruise through local streets to taste a variety of savory menus at some of the most beloved spots of the locals. This unique experience lets you discover a side of Bangkok unknown to visitors. Meal: B, D

Day 5: Bangkok - Chiang Mai
After breakfast, depart for the airport and the flight to Chiang Mai. Upon arrival, meet your local guide and drive up the serpentine road to the magnificently situated Wat Doi Suthep. Perched atop a forested mountain with sweeping views of the city below, this most sacred of Chiang Mai 's temples houses a wealth of Buddha images, murals and art. On your return to the city, visit two important temples - Wat Chedi Luang, “The temple of the Great Stupa”, located in the ancient walled part of the city. Continue on foot to Wat Phan Tao, an ancient temple known for its exquisite Lanna-style ordination hall (Wihan). Entirely made of teakwood, it is one of the few remaining all wooden structures of its sort in Chiang Mai. A stop is made at the city 's biggest market, Talat Warorot, before arriving at the hotel for a bit of relaxation before tonight 's special event. This evening, enjoy a superb Northern Thai Dinner, complete with folk dances and presentations by hill tribes at the Old Chiang Mai Cultural Center. Meals: B, D

Day 8: Chiang Mai - Chiang Rai
Depart Chiang Mai and journey to Chiang Rai via Mae Kachan Hot Spring and Wat Rongkun, also known as the 'White Temple '.
