You will begin your 13-night getaway in Chiang Rai, located in the heart of Thailand's Golden Triangle. Close to the borders of Burma and Laos, there's plenty to do, from hiking and biking to visiting one of the many hill tribe villages that dot this region. Pa Sak Tong offers private villas set in 29 acres but just 15-minutes away from the center of Chiang Rai where you will find the impressive Wat Rong Khun.
Next from Chiang Rai to Chiang Mai, Dhara Dhevi awaits. This is an adventure playground for all with a palatial style which parents will love and the Lanna Kids Club where younger guests can get stuck into rice planting, some Muay Thai boxing or umbrella painting; the activities available are endless. From here families can explore the highlights of Chiang Mai or take a day trip to Tong Bai Elephant Foundation to learn about these incredible animals.
After three nights at Dhara Dhevi, you will then fly down to the bustling city of Bangkok where you will spend two nights at the Peninsula Bangkok, one of the city's finest hotels. Take a boat trip down the Chao Phraya River to the Grand Palace where you can marvel at the famous emerald Buddha, and later onto the flower or night markets where you can feast upon delicious cuisine. The hotel has a prime location on the west bank of the river with outstanding views which you can enjoy at Thiptara, the hotel's authentic Thai restaurant.
Finally, no vacation is complete without some needed rest and rejuvenation and heavenly Samujana provides just that. These private villas offer unparalleled views, privacy with an immaculately clean modern design.

When to go
Thailand remains tropical and humid for most of the year and overall the best time to visit is between November and February when temperatures are more manageable and rain is less common. There are three main seasons, the cool season when temperatures in the North are lower for longer, the rainy season from May to October when warm humid air brought from the Indian Ocean causes the south to be wettest (low season and when fewer tourists travel) and the hot season from March to May. There are of course regional variations across the country, however generally there is little difference in temperature across the center and the south of the country, related to its proximity to the equator.
