Day 1: Bangkok Arrival – Transfer to Bangkok hotel (-/-/-)
Meet our tour guide at the airport and continue to hotel. Our guide will give you overview of Bangkok, what is highlight and things visitors should do and see.
Bangkok, Thailand's major gateway, casts an irresistible spell of enchantment. To the Thais it is Krung Thep, "City of Angels", and you'll find it truly a magic place, one that captivates the imagination. Bangkok expresses Thailand's uncanny ability to blend the old with the new. Ancient palaces and Buddhist temples contrast with rising luxurious condominiums. In the midst of dynamic modern growth, this bustling metropolis still preserves plenty of cultural heritages which make the town become the national treasure house of Thailand. This lends a thrilling sense of discovery to one's sightseeing and adds an element of surprise when exploring what is the Orient's most fabled city.

Day 3 : Chiang Mai arrival – Chiang Mai city tour (-/-/-)
Chiang Mai (New City) was founded in 1296 by King Mengrai as the capital of the first independent Thai state, Lanna Thai (Kingdom of One Million Rice Fields). It became the cultural and religious center of the northern Tai, those who had migrated from southern China to dwell in Thailand, and remained so throughout the turbulent period of recurring Burmese attacks. The Burmese finally captured Chiang Mai in 1556 and occupied it until King Taksin retook the city in 1775, driving the Burmese forces back to near the present border. Burmese influence on religion, architecture, language, cuisine, and culture, however, remains strong. The city stands on the Ping River, a major tributary of the Chao Phraya River.
