    Thailand

    “Thailand” translates to “land of the free” and we think it’s about time that you free yourself from your day-to-day duties and take the trip of a lifetime. We aim to make your travels in Thailand as stress-free as possible. That’s why we take care of your hotel reservations, take you to see the most popular sights, and provide you with a delicious breakfast every morning. And if that weren’t enough, we set you up with a Local Host® who can provide suggestions about what to see and do during your stay.

    Your 4-day vacation begins the moment you arrive in Bangkok. We arrange your private transfer from the airport to your hotel, where your Local Host will greet you and help acquaint you with the city. The next morning, after an included breakfast, discover the history and highlights of the city on a private guided tour. Your day will start with a boat ride through Bangkok’s canals, or klongs, to see family homes and temples—you’ll quickly see why they call this city “Venice of the East.” Next, visit Wat Arun, the Temple of the Dawn, and the Grand Palace, which houses the Temple of the Emerald Buddha. Lastly, stop at the Temple of the Reclining Buddha, the oldest and largest Buddhist temple in Bangkok, featuring one of the largest Buddha statues in Thailand.

    The following day you are free to explore on your own. You may consider a visit to Jim Thompson’s House; a dinner cruise on the Chao Phraya River; or take an excursion to colorful Damnoen Saduak floating market. Your Local Host can help you with suggestions.

    Between the transportation we’ve arranged, the sightseeing we’ve included, and the hotels we’ve booked, the only thing left for you to do is pack your bags and enjoy your experience!

    Bangkok Insider Recommendations

    The Blue Elephant
    You may decide you can’t get enough of the delicious local flavors, and if that’s the case, spend half a day at The Blue Elephant to learn how to prepare authentic Thai at home. This cooking school takes you through the entire process—from shopping at a market to enjoying your dishes. While it’s somewhat more expensive than a half day of museums and lunch, the long-term benefits are immense.

    Lumpini Park
    Lumpini Park is an inner-city haven of peace, fresh air and greenery – inviting visitors to connect with nature or enjoy outdoor leisure activities. Named after the birthplace of the Lord Buddha in Nepal, the park is a shady oasis home to various flora and fauna including the eccentric water monitor lizard.

    Pratunam-Phetchaburi
    Grease the elbows and stretch the knees; it’s time for a hectic shopping experience. There’s something for everyone here—from the bargain-hunter to the clinically fashionable. Clothing, jewelry, crafts, and much more are on full display in this busy area. Make sure you venture behind the street-front vendors to Pratunam Market for international goods. Keep in mind, bargaining here is more about being friendly and respectful.

    Apoteka Lux Bar
    With an old school feel, the Apoteka Lux Bar is based on an outdated word for pharmacist and emulates a 19th century apothecary. Come for the live music or grab a spot at the patio for a nice place to curl up for a romantic night or meet some friends.

    Go Sky High
    Bangkok is blessed with several “Sky High” options where you can have dinner and/or drinks with a stunning view over the city. Check out the Octave Rooftop Lounge & Bar on the 45th floor of the Marriott Hotel Sukhumvit for a great sunset or romantic meal with the only 360 degree view of Bangkok. Be prepared to pay a little more but it’s worth it!

    Thai massage
    There are countless places offering traditional Thai massage in Bangkok. One of the best choices is the Thai Massage School at Wat Pho. Many of the local masseuse and masseurs were taught here, and you can get a 1-hour massage for $15 to $20 USD. You can also learn the techniques for yourself!

    Ride a tuk-tuk
    These small 3-wheeled vehicles are an interesting way to get around and should be tried by anyone traveling to Bangkok. Make sure to negotiate the fare before sitting down.

    Shanghai
    Shanghai is the country’s most industrious and glamorous city on China tours. Rated as having the highest population in the country, this growing metropolis is a fascinating blend of cultures – old and new, as well as eastern and western. It is the most influential city in Eastern China economically, culturally, and technologically, and now boasts the world’s largest container trading port.

    Shanghai doesn’t have a downtown core but rather urban centers which are scattered in various districts. The Huangpu River which is a tributary to the Yangtze River is the dividing line of Shanghai’s two major districts.

    Your Hotel in Shanghai

    Experience the traditional virtue of hospitality with a contemporary twist, complemented with meticulously designed facilities and hotel services to accommodate to the modern urbanites. Discover your personal comfort in the heart of this vibrant city through personalized services curated by The Sukhothai Shanghai.

    Shanghai Insider Recommendations

    Jade Buddha Temple
    Located in the western part of Shanghai the famous Jade Buddha Temple makes for an interesting visit. Built between 1918 and 1928, this temple is one of the city’s few active Buddhist monasteries. Here you can see two stunning jade Buddha statues that were brought from Burma in 1882 by a monk named Huigen.

    Xin Tiandi
    This huge space features a multitude of food and beverage, retail, entertainment, recreational, and residential facilities in restored “shikumen” houses, a form of traditional and unique architecture only found in Shanghai. It is a nice place to wander around for a bit.

    Nanjing Road
    Nanjing road was one of the first commercial streets that appeared in Shanghai after the city opened as a port to foreign trade about 150 years ago. For decades, it was one of the country’s largest commercial hubs. In the 1930s, Nanjing road claimed the reputation as the retail center in China, gathering almost all the most famous shops, many of which were established in the Qing Dynasty. Today, these century-old businesses continue to draw throngs of customers and despite the ups and downs in Shanghai’s history, Nanjing Road has not lost the reputation as China’s most bustling shopping street.

    Tianzifang
    This area offers a wide variety of shops from cafes, bars and restaurants to art galleries, craft stores, and studios. What makes this area unique is that it doesn’t not look or feel like a shopping mall area. Tianzifang preserves its distinctly residential feel – with electric cables strung overhead and air-conditioning units perched to the outside of buildings.

For lunch, stop at a local restaurant featuring XIAOLONGBAO, Shanghai’s most famous dish. These tasty soup dumplings are handmade with at least 18 intricate folds to close the top. The broth is the star so, to avoid wasting a single drop, gently pick up the dumpling, dip in sauce, and transfer to a Chinese soup spoon.
