Thailand is one of the many countries where not only is it a tropical paradise but it is also rich in history and culture. Thailand offers a variety of things to do for all types of holidays and for everyone.
Here is our recommended one-week itinerary for an exclusive Thai holiday experience…
Thailand’s Andaman Sea is renowned for being one of the calmest seas in the world and also for its pristine natural beauty and rich marine life.
Phuket is the biggest island in Thailand, located in the Andaman Sea. You can start your trip by visiting Phuket and its many attractions.
Getting to Phuket
You can fly from Bangkok Suvarnabhumi Aiport (BKK) or Don Mueang International Airport (DMK) to Phuket International Airport (HKT).
Getting Around Phuket
There are many options to get around Phuket. You can hire private taxis or vans throughout your trip. You can also rent a car but note that an international driver’s license is required.
Moreover, you can use a transportation application called ‘Grab’, where you can book a ride via vehicles that you prefer with just the tip of your fingers.
Once you have arrived in Phuket, head to the nearest beach to your hotel/resort or Nai Harn Beach where you can spend your first day lying on the soft white sand in the warm Sun with a coconut drink next to you.
Get a massage by the beach with a view overlooking the sea where you can relax after a long journey.
Then, if you are looking to experience Phuket nightlife, visit Bangla Road by Patong Beach where you will get to enjoy street food, restaurants, music, and entertainment.
Or, you can also spend the evening at a fine-dining restaurant and indulge yourself in both international and traditional Thai cuisines.
Start your day early in the morning and go on an island tour. The tour agency will usually pick you up at your hotel/resort at around 7.00 a.m., making it extremely convenient for travelers to enjoy Phuket’s delights.
The island tour typically takes you to the magical Phi Phi Islands, see Maya Bay where the Beahc movie took place, see monkeys in their natural habitat at Monkey Beach, and snorkel around Phi Phi Islands. Some tour agencies may even offer an all-you-can-eat lunch at Phi Phi Island.
You will get to experience the lavishing nature of Phi Phi Islands and enjoy outdoor activities.
Only about a 3-hour drive from Phuket, you will be able to embrace the stunning scenery of limestone cliffs and crystal clear water of Krabi.
Getting to Krabi from Phuket
You can hire a private taxi or van to Ao Nang, Krabi. Ao Nang is a town in Krabi that offers many amazing things for tourists to enjoy and is also the best place to stay in Krabi.
Getting Around Krabi
You can also hire a private taxi around Krabi or rent a car/motorbike. Grab is also available for car options.
Arrive in Krabi early in the morning so you have time to explore this beautiful province. After leaving your luggage at your hotel, you can hire a tour or a taxi to the Emerald Pool. Krabi’s Emerald Pool is located in the Klong Thom district, just about an hour away from Ao Nang.
At the Emerald Pool, you can wander around the jungle full of fascinating trees and nature. You can also swim in the turquoise fresh water surrounded by streams and a mountain view.

There are also many top-rated Thai-Chinese-style restaurants that guarantee you the authentic experience of Thai-Chinese dining culture, making it the perfect place to spend your evening in Bangkok.
Spend your morning there by heading straight to Erawan Falls. Erawan Falls is nestled in the Erawan National Park and has the most magical waterfalls that will leave visitors awestruck.
There are 7 levels of the waterfalls and each level has its own unique quality. If you are an adventure enthusiast, we recommend you hike up the waterfalls to level 7. There, you will get to take in the beautiful view of the park and get good exercise.
If you simply want to relax, you are also allowed to swim in the pristine blue waters with fish and lifeguards ensuring your safety.
There are restaurants in and around the park where you can have lunch and get ready for the next adventure in Kanchanaburi City.
In the afternoon, head back to the city and uncover the Bridge over the River Kwai, also known as the Death Railway. The bridge was built in 1942 during World War II by prisoners of war for the purpose of the Japanese force being able to transport cargo to India through Thailand and Myanmar. Many prisoners lost their lives during the course of the event.
In present days, you can walk on the bridge and visit museums to learn about the history of the railway and what happened in Kanchanaburi during the war.
Next to the Death Railway locates the Jeath War Museum where you can discover displays and texts about the conditions of the prisoners of war and many more heartbreaking stories about the war.
You can also visit the Kanchanaburi War Cemetary where the graves of the prisoners of war under the Japanese occupation lie. There are no entrance fees to enter the cemetery and it is now supported by expats around the world who have lost their family members in this unfortunate event.
As it is your last day in Thailand and you are in Bangkok, wrap up your trip by visiting the many malls that Bangkok has to offer.
You can visit Siam Paragon, MBK Center, or Chatujak Weekend Market to get Thai gadgets and gizmos for your friends and family.
