3 nightsCHIANG RAI

Your holiday begins in Chiang Rai and the Golden Triangle, where two rivers, the Ruak and the Mekong, the three countries of Thailand, Burma and Laos meet – you’ll even be able to see all three countries from your room at Anantara Golden Triangle Elephant Camp & Resort, set amidst jungles of bamboo, overlooking mountains in another country.  

Meet elephants on the doorstep at the resort's own elephant camp, and spend a memorable day with a mahout, learning how to bathe and feed the animals, and go trekking and mountain biking in the tropical landscapes.

After exploring the unique setting of the Golden Triangle, relax on your private balcony overlooking the landscaped gardens and the dense jungle.

2 nightsBANGKOK

Immerse yourself in buzzing Bangkok, where floating markets meet designer shopping malls, and where towering skyscrapers sit alongside ancient temples – this city redefines the concept of ‘old meets new’. Take it all in on a leisurely and scenic cruise along the Chao Phraya River. After you’ve had your fill of non-stop Bangkok, retreat to AriyasomVilla, a serene oasis that is beautiful inside and out, with spacious rooms and a pool to cool off in – and the delicious breakfasts will certainly set you up for a day’s sightseeing.

2 nightsKHAO SOK

Your next destination is Khao Sok and the luxurious Elephant Hills Tented Camp, where you’ll stay in the floating Rainforest Camp on the serene Cheow Lan Lake. Elephant Hills not only gives a new meaning to ‘glamping’ but is set in stunning surroundings in the heart of the rainforest, where you’ll have elephants, as well as a wide range of other wildlife, right on the doorstep. Spend a memorable day with a mahout learning how to bathe and feed the elephants, and go wildlife spotting on a trek into the heart of the rainforest, or on a kayak weaving around the mangroves, watching out for leopards, sun bears, monkeys and birds from kingfishers to hornbills. Back at the camp, enjoy a swim in the palm-fringed pool before tucking into a delicious dinner and sharing stories around the campfire, under the stars.

4 nightsKHAO LAK

A favourite of film directors, the impossibly beautiful Khao Lak won’t fail to wow. Relax and unwind at the beautiful Sarojin, which sits on a beautiful beach overlooking the Andaman Sea. As well as making time for lying in a hammock, and enjoying your private plunge pool, visit the Similan Islands on the Lady Sarojin yacht, and go snorkelling and diving among the colourful coral and marine life, including sharks, dolphins and manta rays – often described as ‘the rainforest of the sea’, this is one of the world’s top diving sites. You could also canoe into sea caves in the scenic Phang Nga Bay, and make the most of trails into the jungle on foot or mountain bike. In Khao Lak Lamru National Park, where cliffs drop down to tropical rainforest, secluded beaches and crystal blue waters, see flying lemurs, monkeys and tapirs. And if you’ve fallen in love with the elephants (and it’s hard not to), there are also plenty of opportunities to spend more time with them here.
