Bangkok is the nation’s capital and it is also an introduction to various aspects of Thai life. As you arrive from the airport you will be absorbed in the hustle and bustle of a major metropolis with buildings reaching to the sky and yet you find tranquility as you wander the grounds of your hotel. You visit all the major tourist sights and yet go off the beaten track to see the Bangkok where people actually live. You get the chance to test your own cooking skills and then those of one of Bangkok’s best restaurants. Absorb it all. Enjoy it all.

Chiang Mai, Thailand's second-largest city, is the gateway to the country's north. Chiang Mai has grown rapidly into a large and dynamic city in recent years but it still retains a great deal of charm within its ancient walls and has much to offer visitors. Much more compact and easier to navigate than Bangkok, it is here that visitors come to immerse themselves in some of Thailand's extraordinary culture

Chiang Rai

4 Days:$895 per person based on private departures for a minimum of two and a maximum of six guests. Add additional Interludes to create your perfect Southeast Asia vacation

For many people, including seasoned travelers, Chiang Rai is thought of as the gateway to the Golden Triangle and while that is true, there is more to Chiang Rai. On this Interlude you will stay at a resort in the mountains with cool breezes and stunning views. You will meet both indigenous hill tribes and Chinese from Yunnan who fled China as the Communists took over. You will even spend time at a winery which produces a decent bottle of wine. The area around Chiang Rai has been cultivated using organic, sustainable agricultural techniques and is farmed by the hill tribe people of the area. It is a great place to explore, and is the picture-postcard vision of verdant Thai rice terraces and orchid-clad hillsides.

Golden Triangle/ Anantara

4 Days:From $1,187 per person based on private departures for a minimum of two and a maximum of six guests; for departures November through April, $1,373 per person. Add additional Interludes to create your perfect Southeast Asia vacation

The Golden Triangle earned its name due to the wealth that opium trading used to bring. Nowadays the opium has gone but the area still retains an allure. The mountains of Myanmar and Laos are easily visible and ruined cities such as Chiang Sean offer evidence of a long and checkered history. On a boat trip on the Mekong River you can dream away while closely passing Burmese and Laos’s countryside and even make a stop on the Lao side of the river and sip Beer Lao or send a postcard from Laos before heading back to the Thai side. Your resort places you in the area with a variety of unique activities both within and outside the resort compound.

Golden Triangle/ Four Seasons Tented Camp

Khao Yai & Phimai

4 Days:$1,491 per person based on private departures for a minimum of two and a maximum of six guests. Add additional Interludes to create your perfect Southeast Asia vacation

One of the problems with "exotic" destinations like Thailand is that the more popular they become, the less exotic they get. Fortunately, there are still a few places where you can escape the tourist crowds and see something of the "real" Thailand. The Northeastern area, commonly known as Korat, located about 160 miles from Bangkok; Korat is essentially the gateway to a region Thais refer to as Isaan, an area with its own distinct culture and cuisine. The city was also home to a major US Air Force base during the Vietnam War era. Thus there are a surprising number of expats around, as well as businesses that cater to them. The two big draws to the province are the huge national park of Khao Yai, and the ancient Khmer-era temple of Phimai. Let us show you this area while you enjoy a delightful resort to stay in.

Koh Lanta

4 Days:From $959 per person based on private departures for a minimum of two and a maximum of six guests; for departures November through April, $1,290 per person. Add additional Interludes to create your perfect Southeast Asia vacation

Koh Lanta is gaining a reputation as the Thai island of choice for those looking for a balance between island charm and sophisticated accommodation. 'Laid back’, 'Thai style’ and 'chilled’ are words that are often used to describe the atmosphere on Lanta Island and it is hard to disagree. It is a secluded island where you can choose from a variety of activities from riding an elephant through the jungle to scuba diving with manta rays. Another choice is to lie on a white sand beach, refreshing drink in hand. The islands still retain a rustic charm - Koh Lanta had no telephones before 2001 and electricity only arrived on the island a short time before that!

Koh Samui

4 Days:From $2,156 per person based on private departures for a minimum of two and a maximum of six guests; for departures July through September, December, January through March, $2,626 per person. Add additional Interludes to create your perfect Southeast Asia vacation

If the Andaman Islands are paradise for just flopping on a tropical beach, Samui is heaven for the active traveler (although of course there are plenty of beaches to flop on too). There are literally hundreds of activities and attractions on Koh Samui, from diving in the pristine waters of the marine park to learning how to be a sea-lion trainer. The luxury market is quite new for Samui but the island is quickly adapting itself to cater for the tastes of a more discerning traveler. And the Four Seasons leads the way. Santiburi golf course is one of the best and one of the most difficult in Asia and there are a preponderance of new up-market restaurants and night clubs, including the trendy Q-Bar.

Phuket

4 Days:From $1,445 per person based on private departures for a minimum of two and a maximum of six guests; for departures November through April, $1,723 per person. Add additional Interludes to create your perfect Southeast Asia vacation

Phuket is Thailand's number one beach resort and one of the world's most famous vacation destinations. Although it is an island it is connected to the mainland by two causeways and it also has its own airport on the island. Here you find the best of the best. Super luxury hotels, yachts, restaurants, fine wine, golf courses, shopping and miles and miles of great beaches. Yes, Phuket is full of tourists but this is a big island (the size of Singapore) and there are plenty of places to hide away if you want. We suggest Anantara Phuket Villas with your own private villa

Thai Cooking Experience

4 Days:From $1,245 per person based on private departures for a minimum of two and a maximum of six guests; for departures November through April, $1,415 per person. Add additional Interludes to create your perfect Southeast Asia vacation

The Chiang Mai Thai Cookery School is run by Master chef Sompon Nabnian and offers a choice of 5 different one-day courses. Each course has been designed as a one-day course so that students will learn all the main techniques for cooking Thai food whichever course they will attend. If the students are taking more than one-day course then they will get more hand on practices and learn all the principal necessities for cooking Thai food. The courses are completely hands on which means that you will prepare and cook all the dishes by yourself. Teachers have an extensive knowledge of Thai ingredients and cooking methods which they take pleasure in sharing with their students every day.

This food experience is a combination of cultural explorations of a little known area of the country and home to the Isaan, combined with hands-on cooking techniques at a cooking school in Chiang Mai owned and run by a master chef. If you are interested in the idea of learning Thai cooking and being able to bring those techniques back home with you this may well be worth considering. It is ideal for two or three couples who like food and like cooking even more. It would also make an ideal getaway for a small group of girlfriends not only interested in cuisine but in having the chance to share an adventure with good friends.

Boutiques, Markets and Kitchens of Thailand

You don’t have to be a food addict to enjoy this trip since it is basically using food as a way to meet the Thai people and immerse yourself in their culture.

Sophisticated Thailand

12 Days:$4,557 per person inclusive of superior rooms in deluxe hotels and resorts, most meals, cooking classes, private sightseeing and transfer and touring by private car and driver. International airfare is additional. Private departures based on your schedule for a minimum of two and a maximum of six guests

Sophistication is more than luxury hotels and fancy meals. It is also the ability to appreciate and feel comfortable in different environments and making every encounter a learning experience. This program provides a bridge between the two. You will explore the ancient markets of Bangkok, have a cooking class in a local home and yet also dine high atop a skyscraper with your table open to the stars. You will receive a private blessing from monks and learn how to take an elephant through the jungle knowing that a massage and a hot bath are there to reward your exertions. As always each departure is private and based on your schedule. It makes a delightful trip for a couple but the adventure can also be enhanced by the addition of one or two other couples of your choosing
