I call Thailand the Ultimate Destination as the country has every kind of option catering to all kinds of travellers. I have been to Amazing Thailand, 6 times till now and I can tell you I have not been able to explore even 10% of what this country has to offer. 

Thailand has everything from beaches, to history, amusement parks, shopping, rainforests, adventure sports and you name it and they have it.

    ITINERARY to Rejuvenate, Relax, Rejoice, Rediscover, Reboot & Revive in Thailand for 20 Days

    REJUVENATE your SOUL in Phuket

    Day 1 - Day 3

    We suggest you start your itinerary with Phuket as it has good connectivity in terms of flight. Once you land in Phuket, relax in your hotel after check-in and then head to Patong Beach. The beach will welcome you with fresh air, turquoise blue water and white sand. It will be a great experience after staying at home and hardly venturing out for the last 1.5 years.

    Just enjoy the beauty of Patong Beach on the first day and give a pat on your back that you have survived the last year and thank God for keeping you and your family safe and get ready for an amazing holiday.

    The next day starts by rejuvenating your soul by visiting the Big Buddha & Wat Chalong in the morning. Offer your prayers and soak in the tranquillity and peace. You can hear the flutter of the Prayer flags and also get to hear the sweet sound of Tinkling Bells.

    After offering your prayers, enjoy a relaxing afternoon in Kata Noi Beach. In the evening before sunset head to Karon Sunset point and get an amazing view of the Sunset and the Phuket island.

    In the evening get shopping therapy at Chillva Night Market. 

    I believe having good Food helps to Rejuvenate the Soul and that's why having good food is also called soulful food. If you are a non-vegetarian then trying out various Seafood options is a must in Phuket. You will find lots of street food vendors selling various non-vegetarian options. Immerse yourself in the street food culinary experience

    If you want to see how Old Phuket used to look like then head to Thalang Road. It is around 15 km from Patong Beach in Phuket. Thalang road, the historical heart of Old Phuket Town, has saved most of its old Sino Portuguese houses. Many old houses were refurbished and entirely rebuilt. You can find many little gems hidden here on the streets. These old streets provide many opportunities to satisfy any photographer and if you are looking for instagrammable images then Thalang Road is the perfect place.

    On the next day head to any travel agent near Bangla Road and book an Island Tour. I can assure you, you will love the island tours. The hot-selling tours are mainly Phi Phi Island Tour and James Bond Island tour. In James bond island tour they will take you to Phang Nga Bay and you can add on the canoe tour also. I would personally recommend taking the James Bond Island tour as the sights are more beautiful and you can experience canoeing in the caves and if you are staying for 2 days then take the Phi Phi Island tour also.

    REBOOT your ENERGY in Krabi

    Day 4 - Day 6

    You must be wondering why I am saying that you will be able to Reboot your Energy in Krabi right? Well, Krabi offers lots of adventure sports that will make you energetic and make you want more. You can put your strengths to the test in Krabi.

    You can reach Krabi from Phuket by Ferry, Bus or Taxi. However, I would suggest taking a ferry from Phuket to Krabi so that you can enjoy the journey with breathtaking views.

    Krabi has more than 200 islands and is just 2 hours from Phuket and the best way to explore the entire islands of Krabi is to go on a day trip. You can also enrol yourself on various courses of Scuba Diving or Rock climbing courses on the island. The aquatic beauty of Krabi is breathtaking, so don't miss scuba diving or if you are not interested in Scuba diving then snorkelling is a must.

    One thing you shouldn't miss is visiting Wat Tham Sua which is one of  Thailand’s natural wonders. You will find many monks who stay and live here. You can easily explore the caves and ensure you visit the footprint of Buddha at a height of 1237 steps from where you get panoramic views of the entire island along with the ocean.

    Take a dip at the Klong Thom Hot Springs which is set inside the beautiful rainforests and hot springs.

    On Day 6 book a tour to Koh Lanta which is approximately 2 hours from Krabi. Koh Lanta is a small island that is approximately 20 km in length. If you want to stay for a longer duration suggest you can book a resort here.

    Don't miss going to Phra Nang Beach which is supposedly one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. The beach has white sand and is dotted with huge cliffs.

    RELAX your MIND in Koh Samui

    Day 7 - Day 9

    Koh Samui is the best place in Thailand if you are planning a relaxed holiday. There are many resorts in Koh Samui which offers the perfect place to unwind. 

    The best way to reach Koh Samui from Krabi is by a short flight.

    Lamai Beach and Chaweng Beach are the most beautiful beaches for relaxation in Koh Samui. Lamai Beach is underrated and is less touristy. From Lamai beach, head to Grandfather's and Grandmother's rock which is just 2 km away. These are natural formations of rocks and good places to just relax and take few photographs.

    In the afternoon from Lamai beach, head to Secret Buddha Garden and Na Muang waterfalls. These are worth the visit and shouldn't be missed.

    You can watch Muay Thai in various rings at night and head to the Night Market for shopping and eating. Again you can treat your taste buds with mouthwatering street foods.

    Don’t miss taking a day trip to Ang Thong National Park on a long tail boat that will offer various islands' breathtaking sights on the way. At Ang Thong National Marine Park you can find limestone cliffs, rocky caves, waterfalls, lakes, coral reefs, white-sand beaches and many more. You can hike here too.

    REVIVE your STRENGTH in Koh Phangan

    Day 10 - Day 12

    Koh Phangan is known for adventure sports like hiking in the waterfalls, snorkelling, diving and yes the famous Full Moon Party. Koh Phangan is just 15 km from Koh Samui and approximately 35 km from Koh Tao. You can reach Koh Phagan by taking a ferry from Koh Samui.

    Head to Leela beach and swing your heart out from one of the swings which are tied on the coconut trees and don't forget to take few photographs for your memory.

    Hike to the Phaeng Noi waterfall and Than Sadet waterfall and enjoy a dip in the crystal clear water. The hike is easy through the jungle.

    Many scuba diving schools in Koh Phangan take you for a breathtaking dive in various locations in Koh Tao. Don't miss to go for one of the dives as Koh Tao has one of the world's best diving site.

    Activities at Koh Phangan will revive your strengths for sure.

    REJOICE your MOOD in Pattaya

    Day 13- Day 16

    Pattaya is undoubtedly the party capital however ditch the Nightlife and enjoy a different side of Pattaya this time. Pattaya is extremely rich in heritage and culture, however, most of the tourists don't explore these beautiful places.

    The other side or the way I call it - The beautiful side of Pattaya will surely rejoice your mood for sure.

    If you enjoy some tranquil moments head to Sanctuary of Truth which is an architectural masterpiece. The temple is completely made of wood. The monument is not only beautiful but you are going to remain awestruck by the view from this place.

    Don't miss to relive your childhood memories and take some quirky pictures at Art in Paradise.

    If you are travelling with family head to Kaan Show. Kaan show is a place where magic comes true and I can assure you, you will love it. The show is like a fairy tale in real life. You need to see it to experience it. The beauty of the show is impossible to explain in writing.

    If you are interested in some water sports and fun rides, head to Cartoon Network Amazone waterpark or Ramayana Waterpark.  You should also see the beautiful aquatic mammals and fishes and some rare aquatic mammals at Underwater Park. If you are travelling with children they will absolutely love these.

    REDISCOVER your SELF in Chiang Mai

    Day 17 - Day 20

    Chiang Mai is a mix of temples and traditional café and is rich in history. Chiang Mai was founded in 1296.

    Before you head back to your country, go on a path of self-realization at various temples in Chiang Mai. 

    In the morning hours head to Wat Chiang Man which was built approx 700 years ago. After immersing yourself in the sights and beauty of Wat Chiang Man head to Wat Phra Sin.

    In the afternoon, after a Thai lunch head for some tranquil moments at Terracotta Garden. This is one of the hidden gems of Chiang Mai. and is absolutely a must-visit place.

    After enjoying with self at Terracotta Garden head to Wat Chedi Luang or the temple of Royal Stupa. This temple was the home of the original Emerald Buddha statue which you can find in Wat Phra Khew in Bangkok. This temple is decorated with lanterns and candles in the evening and looks breathtaking. So ensure you visit this temple in the evening for an enjoyable evening.

    The next day you should visit Mountain Temple, Wat Phra That Doi Suthep and then to Elephant Jungle Sanctuary before heading back home.

    Chiang Mai also hosts the famous festival of Loi Krathong, and if you plan your trip during the festival you will have a lifetime experience.

    Your trip to Thailand, once Tourism opens up will truly help you Relax, Rejuvenate, Rejoice, Rediscover, Reboot & Revive.
