Itinerary and Meals
“Et cetera, et cetera, et cetera.” Who said this? That’s right…the King of Siam (now Thailand) in “The King and I.” We’re not sure, but we think he was referring to all the benefits you get from traveling with Monograms: included meals, sightseeing, expert guides, et cetera, et cetera, et cetera. In fact, on this 10-day vacation, we’ve arranged your hotel accommodations, private guided sightseeing, daily breakfast (plus three lunches and one dinner), transportation, and transfers from/to your hotels to/from the airports for all intra-vacation flights. Plus, we have arranged for you to have a Local Host®—someone who will help make sure your trip is all you want it to be—in each city: Bangkok, Chiang Rai, Ban Thaton, and Chiang Mai.Your vacation begins the moment you arrive in Bangkok, as we can pick you up at the airport and take you to your selected hotel. Your Local Host will greet you with a warm welcome and help you get settled. The next morning, after included breakfast, we’ve arranged for a private guided tour of Bangkok. Visit the Temple of the Dawn, whose 260-foot-tall spire has become identified with Bangkok; the Grand Palace; the Temple of the Emerald Buddha, painstakingly carved from a single block of jade; and the Temple of the Reclining Buddha, the oldest and largest Buddhist temple in Bangkok. Wait until you see the 49-foot-high and 151-foot-long massive Reclining Buddha! We’ve also included a boat ride through the klongs, Bangkok’s canals, where you will see family homes, temples, and the local way of life.After a full day at leisure in Bangkok, you will fly to Chiang Rai, where your Local Host will be waiting for you at the airport. In Chiang Rai, we’ve arranged private guided sightseeing that includes a trishaw ride, the favorite local mode of transportation; a visit to the local market; and a visit to Wat Phra Kaew, which once housed the Emerald Buddha. We have then arranged transportation for you to Ban Thaton, where you will have two private guided tours. We will take you to an Akha village, a hill tribe known for gorgeous headdresses decorated with silver coins, and to a Lisu village.From Ban Thaton, we will transport you to Chiang Mai, where you will visit Wat Phra Singh with its famous Buddha image, and Wat Doi Suthep, a temple tucked away in the mountains, where you will enjoy spectacular views of Chiang Mai. You will have a full day at your leisure to enjoy independent exploration or perhaps book an optional Thai cooking class or attend a Khantoke dinner show featuring a local dance performance. And did we mention we’ve included a boat ride on the Kok River in Ban Thaton? It’s just another one of the details we’ve included. We want to make sure you enjoy many forms of transportation: boat rides, a trishaw ride, et cetera, et cetera, et cetera. In fact, between the sightseeing we’ve arranged, the transportation and attractions we’ve included, the hotels we’ve booked, the meals we’ve included, and the guides we’ve arranged, all you have to do is sit back and enjoy. We’ve taken away the stress and hassles of having to figure out where to go and what to do, so what are you waiting for? Thailand awaits!
