Luxury Tailor Made Journeys depart on the dates that work for you and feature expert local guides throughout your journey. The itinerary below can be customized to your interests.

Days 1-2
Arrive Bangkok, Thailand

Arrive in Bangkok and transfer to your luxury hotel on the Chao Phraya River. Discover this city of contrasts the next day, first with a visit to the exotically perfumed Pak Klong Talat, Bangkok’s largest and most colorful flower market. Next, make the pilgrimage — as many devout Buddhists do — to the eclectic Grand Palace, a sprawling complex of glittering halls and pavilions. Explore its spire-topped Throne Room and stunning Queen Sirikit Museum of Textiles. Ride a tuk-tuk to a local restaurant for lunch. Later, cruise the Chao Phraya on a local boat to a neighborhood temple, where you receive a blessing from a monk and discuss the importance of Buddhism in Thai culture. Continue to peaceful Kudi Jeen, one of Bangkok’s most diverse communities. Walk to a family bakery, where you taste a local specialty cake, and then stop at the community’s church. Return to your hotel, with time to refresh before gathering for tonight’s welcome dinner.

The Siam
Meals: Breakfast, Lunch (Day 2)
Day 3
Luang Prabang, Laos | A Traditional Welcome

Fly to Luang Prabang and transfer to your stunning new hotel in a hilltop forest. Settle into your riverside villa, enjoying the soothing sound of the river as it gently bubbles by, or lounging on the oversized day bed on the balcony with the soothing sounds of nature ever near. This evening, partake in a baci ceremony, a Laotian welcoming ritual performed to bestow the protective power of the spirits on the visitor. Join locals for a game of pétanque (the French version of bocce). Tonight, partake in an al fresco dinner featuring produce from your hotel’s on-site organic garden.

Day 4
Luang Prabang | Laotian Treasures & Traditions

Enjoy immersing in the tranquility of Luang Prabang. Rise before dawn to participate in tak bat, a silent ceremony offering food to local monks who walk in meditation with their alms bowls. Then, visit a local market followed by breakfast at your hotel. Later, explore the Royal Palace Museum and Wat Xieng Thong with its impressive tree of life mosaic and richly decorated wooden columns. After lunch, return to your hotel for a relaxing afternoon at your leisure, during which you may choose from one of the hotel’s Laotian-inspired spa treatments, including a detoxifying cleanse delivered by a healer from the local Hmong tribe.

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch
Day 5
Luang Prabang | Organic Rice Farm

Lush rice fields define the landscape of Laos. This morning, experience a closer look during an enriching farm-to-village tour. Explore every stage of the rice harvest before tasting local snacks made from this regional staple. Transfer out of town and meet Lautlee, a friendly local farmer who personally takes you around his family’s farm for an authentic “crop to bowl” experience in Laos. Stroll through verdant fields to learn about the types of crops grown here and how they are traditionally harvested and used, exploring every stage of the rice harvest. Help tend to the produce in the organic vegetable garden. Then, head indoors for a hands-on cooking experience, learning how to transform grains of glutinous rice from the field into long strands of Lao noodles used in a spicy Lao soup called khao poon. The best part of this experience is tasting the delicious fruits of your labor in the form of local snacks made from this regional staple. Enjoy lunch on your own, followed by a relaxing afternoon at your hotel, perhaps by the pool or natural waterfall. An exciting evening awaits with dinner at a local restaurant and an optional visit to the lively, handicraft night market.
