Today, head to Khao Yai National Park about three hours drive from Bangkok for a jungle safari. Join your guide on a trek through grasslands to the wildlife watchtower and salt lick to spot animals. Then cool off with a swim at a waterfall before returning back to town. This evening head out again for a night safari and if you are lucky you might see the nocturnal animals that roam the park, such as large Indian civet cats, porcupines, samba and other deer. You might even see wild elephants!
Visit the Ban Prasart archaeological excavation site and let your kids become the next Indiana Jones! Set up as an outdoor museum, it consists of three pits that have been landscaped and are open to the public. Bones and pots have been found dating the site as far back as 3,000 years. Then head to Bangkok arriving late in the afternoon and check into the Bangkok Tree House.
Learn the tragic history behind one of the world’s most famous bridges as you head to Kanchanaburi about four hours by road. Take a walk over the bridge at River Kwai, built by prisoners of World War II, and slave labour many of whom lost their lives during construction. After lunch, the journey continues to a lakeside village where you will board a Thai houseboat. Spend the afternoon swimming, relaxing on deck, or napping in a hammock as the houseboat slowly cruises around the lake.
Wake up to the sound of the water gently lapping against the boat. Get set for a day of adventure starting with kayaking to small caves inhabited by hundreds of bats. Board a long-tail boat to reach a Karen hill tribe village and take a walk through the village and say hi to the locals. Then meet your elephant for a walk through the jungle followed by bamboo river rafting. Return to the houseboat in the afternoon just in time for snooze in a hammock.
Spend your last morning swimming, fishing and sunbathing on your water based home. Around mid-morning, a motorboat will take you to the village of Wang Kha, home to a number of ethnic minorities. Explore a picturesque temple and wander through a Burmese market selling crafts and jewellery. Continue to Sangkhlaburi via Thailand’s longest wooden bridge, where a vehicle will be waiting to transfer you to Hua Hin for a relaxing beach break.
Hua Hin has an eight-kilometre stretch of beach perfect for a relaxing holiday. It’s a favourite with the Thai Royals and the jet-set who have built their own beachfront summer homes along the curving sandy bay. Besides sun-filled days on the long coastline there are leisure activities for the whole family. With lots of water sports, parks, caves and waterfalls, not to mention the world class golf courses.
Enjoy one final morning of sun and sand before you are taken to the airport for your onward flight, leaving Thailand having explored its most authentic region, having experienced the throbbing pulse of the capital, and having lived a postcard dream in a tropical beach paradise - it won’t be long before you’re craving another trip to Southeast Asia.
