Thailand Deluxe Singles Vacation
May 27th - June 7th

10-Nights, Deluxe 4-star hotels and air from LAX

just $2,450

We've got 5 spots available on this trip and there's also the second Thailand trip on June 10th

This will be our 3rd trip to Thailand and our second time to Krabi. Thailand is exotic, beautiful, and thrillingly different. This time around we're going for a more relaxing trip with just two stops - 3-nights in Bangkok and 7-nights in Krabi.   

 

Bangkok certainly lives up to its reputation as a travel hot spot in Southeast Asia. The "City of Angels" has funky markets, upscale malls, a riverside full of surprises, a vibrant nightlife scene, and attractions that reflect its unique heritage. There's a modern skytrain and underground systems that cover a large area and you can explore the riverside area by a long-tail speedboat or river taxi. Vibrant, cosmopolitan and intriguing, Bangkok is simply sensational. As the cultural and commercial centre, Thailand's fascinating capital presents an everlasting curious palette of activities, events, parties and other happenings. From spectacular stage productions to colorful temple fairs, sumptuous food festivals and bizarre art installations, something peculiar goes on every day.

 

We arrive on May 28th with our direct (stops in Seoul) flight from LAX. The next 2 days we will plan a a couple of half day tours to include the Grand Palace and a Klong tour of the canals. For a real sense of how people in Bangkok used to live, in stilted shacks, old wooden townhouses and dilapidated lean-tos – and still do – see them at the Bangkok Thonburi Khlongs.  Bangkok's charming riverside is brimming with stories to tell. On this tour, a long-tailed speedboat whisks you down the Chao Phraya River and canals (khlongs) of Thonburi – the original site where Bangkok was founded. Immerse yourself in the picturesque riverside scenery, as you drift past stilted wooden homes, 'floating kitchens', mobile shops, colonial mansions and all kinds of colorful culture along the riverfront, before stopping at the enchanting Temple of Dawn (Wat Arun).

 

During our canal tour we will visit Wat Arun, situated on the west bank of the Chao Phraya River. It is believed that after fighting his way out of Ayutthaya, which was besieged by a Burmese army at the time, King Taksin arrived at this temple just as dawn was breaking.  He later had the temple renovated and renamed it Wat Chaeng, the Temple of the Dawn. The beauty of the architecture and the fine craftsmanship declare its status as a temple of the first grade and one of the most outstanding temples in Thailand. The spire (prang) of Wat Arun is one of Bangkok's world-famous landmarks. It has an imposing spire over 70 metres high, beautifully decorated with tiny pieces of colored glass and Chinese porcelain placed delicately into intricate patterns.

 

If there is one must-see sight that no visit to Bangkok would be complete without, it's the dazzling, spectacular Grand Palace, undoubtedly the city's most famous landmark. Built in 1782 - and for 150 years the home of the Thai King, the Royal court and the administrative seat of government - the Grand Palace of Bangkok is a grand old dame indeed, that continues to have visitors in awe with its beautiful architecture and intricate detail, all of which is a proud salute to the creativity and craftsmanship of Thai people. Within its walls were also the Thai war ministry, state departments, and even the mint. Today, the complex remains the spiritual heart of the Thai Kingdom. Within the palace complex are several impressive buildings including Wat Phra Kaew (Temple of the Emerald Buddha), which contains the small, very famous and greatly revered Emerald Buddha that dates back to the 14th century.

 

The nights in Bangkok are so famous you might remember the song, "one night in Bangkok". Bangkok nightlife is legendary and for good reason. The city is buzzing seven nights a week, with world famous mega-clubs and underground haunts attracting revelers from every corner of the planet. You can find every niche musical movement in Bangkok – from classic hip hop, to funky vocal house and even drum ’n’ bass – and it’s this sheer choice, along with fun-loving crowds and the classic easygoing Thai charm that makes Bangkok the premier clubbing destination in Asia, and one of the most boisterous party cities in the world. The entire city takes on a vibrant flavor with an abundance of options from a nice dinner cruise to a visit to the red-light district or a high tech club, Bangkok certainly has it going on.  Click here to read more.

Our hotel, the 4-1/2 star Eastin Grand Hotel Sathorn was chosen for it's high ranking on Tripadvisor (9 out of 721 hotels in Bangkok!) and the tram system stops right at the hotel, not to mention the beautiful rooms and infinity pool at the top of the roof!  Everyone will now enjoy upgraded rooms to the Executive floor with not just amazing views but some incredible benefits including free open bar for 2 hours every night complete with hors dourves!  Read more below.

After our 3 nights in Bangkok we will depart for the amazing coastline with our visit to Krabi. When the group went here in 2007 I was blown away with the beauty and the islands off-shore that are a short boat ride away. Krabi Town is majestically situated among impossibly angular limestone karsts jutting from the mangroves. The distinguishing feature of both Krabi and neighboring Phang Nga is the massive limestone karsts, rising vertiginously out of the flat rice paddies on land and as islands from the sea.

Krabi abounds with countless natural attractions that never fail to impress. Such attractions include white sandy beaches, crystal clear water, fascinating coral reefs, caves and waterfalls, as well as numerous islands. We'll organize optional tours into the interior jungle for river rafting ATVing, Caving, Ziplining, and even elephant riding and head to the ocean for snorkeling, island hoping and scuba diving. There is just so much to do including visiting spas, hot springs and other sight seeing and in Thailand our dollars goes a LONG WAY.. Check out this website for a look at some of our tour choices. . Plus there are the gorgeous beaches and excellent scuba diving.

Our hotel is the 4-star Aonang Cliff Beach Resort which is convienently located in the heart of Krabi. It's another luxury resort that will certainly please. Read more below. Early signups will get oceanview rooms and
