If you don't know Bangkok yet, you shouldn't miss taking a city tour to see the outstanding temples and glittering gold palaces of this cosmopolitan metropolis with your German-speaking tour guide. You will visit Wat Po, the temple of the “Lying Buddha”. Temple complex of the outstanding Emerald Buddha “Wat Phra Kaew”, as well as the fairytale royal palace.

Day 3: Bangkok – sensational railway market – floating market – “bridge on the quay” – raft ride and “showering under a tropical waterfall”. Jungle of Sai Yok. Overnight stay on a romantic houseboat in the jungle. FA. Your tour guide will pick you up from the hotel at 7:00 a.m. Bus ride along huge salt fields to a small coconut farm. In front of the “Floating Market” we see a unique spectacle - the quaint train market of Maeklong. Shortly before the train arrives, the market women fold up their stalls so that the train can pass. When the bell rings and the procession is over, the stall is folded back down and the market business continues. We then take a boat trip through the narrow waterways to the famous “floating market” of Damnoen Saduak, where market women with their wide-brimmed straw hats and colorful sarongs sell their goods from the boat, just like they did centuries ago. Fascinating to see how people haggle, exchange and sell. Drive to Sai Yok. After settling into the houseboat (simple but very clean - no mosquitoes!) we take a raft to a waterfall to shower. You will enjoy it - a unique experience! Pure nature. Excellent dinner, cozy get-together and overnight stay on the houseboat.

Day 4: Sai Yok - 'Bridge on the River Kwai' - Pitsanulok.
Visit to the famous, infamous “Bridge on the River Kwai”, then continue your journey along shimmering green rice fields via Supanburi to Pitsanulok. Overnight stay in a first class hotel.

Day 5: Pitsanulok - Sukhothai - Chiang Mai.
In the morning we visit Pitsanulok, an important temple complex for the Thais with a highly revered, gilded bronze statue from the Sukhothai period. In the complex itself we see Thai dancers, fortune tellers, food stalls and stalls.
We then drive to Sukhothai and take a detailed tour of the historical park. Sukhothai was the powerful capital of the Thai kingdom for 140 years (1238-1378). We visit the huge historical area that houses a variety of temple ruins, including Wat Mahatat, the royal temple that was the largest sanctuary during the Sukhothai period; the one in the 13th century. Built in the Khmer style, Wat Si Sawi, Wat Sra Sri with a Ceylonese-style stupa and Wat Si Chum with a huge seated Buddha figure in a square moon op that opens at the top. We drive on a good road through the mountain jungle up north to Chiang Mai. Overnight stay in a first class hotel in Chiang Mai.

Day 6: Chiang Mai - elephant safari - rafting - craft workshops.
An eventful day: we visit the elephant camp and take part in the daily morning washing of the elephants. In a demonstration we see how the animals are prepared and trained for their jungle mission. You can optionally go on an elephant safari and ride on the pachyderms' backs for an hour through the lush forested jungle and through a river (optional. €25 per person - to be ordered when booking). We then visit a butterfly and orchid farm.
After lunch we visit the world-famous craft workshops in Bo Sang and San Khampeng with umbrella making, umbrella painting, silk and cotton weaving and wood carving.
At the end of this very interesting tour we drive to Doi Suthep Temple (800 m above Chiang Mai).
