The Ultimate Adventure Tour of Thailand

16 days from £4,250 per person

Top 10s logo 

This Ultimate Adventure Tour of Thailand is one of Ampersand's Top 10 Family-friendly Itineraries.

This journey visits many of the natural splendours of Thailand and offers the opportunity to learn a number of traditional skills such as mahout training, Thai massage and Boxing. Starting in the Golden Triangle, discover how to guide an elephant by riding on its neck and using soft commands, and light touches behind its ears, trek into the lush forests on elephants and foot. Continue to Thailand's oldest National Park, Khao Yai for jungle walks, night safaris and possible sightings of elusive wild elephant and tigers.

Next, journey to exotic Bangkok to watch local life unfold as you cycle along the canals, and learn the centuries-old art of Thai massage. This journey concludes with a relaxing stay on one of Thailand's most famous beaches with views over a spectacular seascape.

This luxury holiday is purely a suggested itinerary; it can be booked as it is or used as a starting point for creating your perfect tailor-made tour of Thailand. If you would like to see similar trips, take a look at our collection of Family Holidays and Honeymoons, as well as our Active, WildlifeBeach, and Spa & Wellness itineraries.

Ampersand’s details preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet/direct booking age. Shalmali was a delight to work with – before and during our trip.
- Mr David Wallace, North India
So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!
- Krista Weir, Sri Lanka
Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.
- Mr & Mrs Manson, North India
Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!
- Leslie Siben, India
I thought the Ampersand team was outstanding. We couldn’t have hoped for anything more.
- Mr Geoffrey Johnson, India
Everything you did for us whilst we were away was hugely appreciated, and Ampersand has been exemplary in every way. I'll always recommend you!
- Mr Richard Stoughton, Sri Lanka
We had a wonderful holiday - everything was perfect. Thank you for helping us to make a thoughtful plan to enjoy and make most out of our trip. The places we visited, the guides, the transportation and driver, the hotels selected... Everything was great!
- Jaime Benitez, South India
I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
- Matthew Nicklin, North India

Buddhism runs strong through the country’s veins - not only are 90% of the Burmese Buddhist, but many children are monks in training and call ancient monasteries home 🧘🏽‍♂️
