Trip Description: This once-in-a-lifetime trip starts in Bangkok, where you'll first experience Thai culture via ornate temples, palaces, countless plates of fried rice and $5 massages (only the safe kind). Once your body is fully adjusted, a short 1-hour flight will take you to the culture capital of Chiang Mai -- the gateway to adventure. Whether you're marveling at city views from impressive hilltop temples, learning how to cook spring rolls and pad thai or playing with baby elephants, Chiang Mai will captivate you with its cultural and historical charm.

After all of these activities, you've earned some lazy beach days on Koh Samui. But fear not, adventure seekers can also venture to Ang Thong National Marine Park, where 42 islands are connected by towering limestone cliffs, white-sand beaches and waterfalls. Hey, ever wanted to eat dinner in a treehouse? You can do that here, too.

Saving the best for last, you'll transfer from Koh Samui to the picturesque island of Railay Beach. This is the Thailand you've been dreaming of -- imagine emerald waters, cascading cliffs and golden beaches lined with colorful longtail boats. The vibe on Railay Beach is super relaxed, but there are plenty of boozy beach bars to kick back on.

The trip ends in Bangkok, to make sure you're back in town for the flight home (unless you want to conveniently miss it, and stay in Thailand forever). We'd be lying if we said we hadn't considered this ourselves.
