Bangkok — 40 nights

City of Angels

Enjoy cultural, historical, and culinary exploration during your holiday in Bangkok, the capital of Thailand and the most populous city in the country.
Satisfy your inner culture vulture at The Grand Palace and Wat Maha That. Change things up with these side-trips from Bangkok: Ayutthaya (Wat Ratchaburana (Temple of the Royal Restoration), King U-Thong Monument, &more), Samut Prakan (Ancient City & Lat Pho Park) and Prasat Nakhon Luang (in Nakhon Luang). There's still lots to do: make a trip to Wat Pho, admire the masterpieces at Bangkok Art & Culture Centre (BACC), stop by Khaosan Road, and shop like a local with Chatuchak Weekend Market.

For maps, other places to visit, photos, and more tourist information, refer to the Bangkok tour itinerary planner.

Pearl of the Andamans
Thailand's largest island, Phuket lures both die-hard divers and casual beach lovers interested in spending most of their time basking in the sand and munching on local delicacies. Picturesque lagoons and an abundance of modern amenities may be the main incentive for a Phuket vacation, but you can find plenty of other things to do here once you get your fill of sun and sand. Away from the busy waterfront, the island boasts many gardens, Buddhist temples, museums, and aquariums that deserve a top spot on any traveler's Phuket itinerary.
