About this trip

Bangkok is Thailands bustling capital, known as the City of Angels. Marvel at magnificent palaces, gleaming temples, and soak in the vibrant street life with tuk-tuks whizzing past. Bangkok is the regional center for fashion, arts, and entertainment along with delicious street food, haute cuisine, and an unforgettable nightlife scene.
Then, complete your vacation with some days in Phuket, Pearl of the South, with its endless beaches and crystal-clear blue ocean.   This gorgeous island features a mountainous verdant rainforest interior dotted with enchanting temples and spectacular shrines along with scenic views with a vibrant nightlife.

Trip Details

October 4-13, 2023. 

Your fun tour starts from Bangkok city where you will be checked into your hotel  and have the day at leisure. Later this evening, you will ride in a Tuk-Tuk and try some amazing street food. The next days, you will be heading for your Bangkok city day tour, and visit the Grand Palace and Wat Pho. Watch the valour and Grandeur of the famous Reclining Buddha and quench your thirst for trinkets and souvenirs at the Floating Market.
The semi-formal rooftop Dinner you will get to have with your ANSE crew is a memory that you will never forget.
Lastly, to let you enjoy the vast islands and clear waters, the trip will then take you to Phuket where you will be going to Phi Phi islands to get the panoramic beauty and the natural essence of the place. Enjoy a day of leisure at James Bond Island or the Elephant Sanctuary.
Return to Bangkok for our final night as we watch the city light up in the night as we cruise along Chao Phraya River on a luxury dinner cruise.

Each hotel room will have the option of selecting two twins, or one Queen. Please note that although we do our best to select your room preferences, room types are never guaranteed.  It is ultimately up to the hotel on which rooms they choose to offer you at time of check-in.  Please not that room categories will vary based on the date/time of your initial deposit (subject to availability and pricing).

Please be mindful of baggage fees when traveling to different destinations. Most flight packages will include 1 carry-on and 1 checked baggage. Excess luggage will be the responsibility of the passenger. 

Deposits and Payments

Your initial deposit is due at the time of booking, and your future payments will be charged according to the schedule you see on your invoice. When booking double occupancy, your roommate must submit their deposit and traveler form within 24 hours of yours or booking will not be confirmed. 

 Bank account payments are free, however, participants paying with card will incur any processing fees at checkout. 

 It is imperative that you make your payments on time. ANSE payments plans are a privilege. We have carefully curated this plan to give you the most allowed time possible.

Travel Insurance

All payments to Art N Soul Escapes LLC are non-refundable and non-transferrable. This is because ANSE has contractual agreements with hotels, airlines and other suppliers that will not allow us to obtain any refunds. This way we can keep our package prices lower than our competition and allow you to make monthly payments on your vacation. Therefore, we highly recommend that you purchase travel insurance with all of your vacation packages.  

Please do your own due diligence and select a supplier that fits your travel needs. There are many to choose from. We recommend purchasing cancel for any reason insurance because it will allow you to do just that. However, purchasing this type of policy is time-sensitive and is recommended to be done at the time of booking to ensure you receive the full benefit of the plan.

Hello, My name is Nicole; owner of Art N Soul Escapes Travel Agency. I've been in the travel industry for over a decade and the event planning industry for the past 14 years. My passions are traveling and planning vacations. My love for travel has taken me to Europe, the Caribbean, Mexico, Africa, Asia, and Russia to name a few. I'm a firm believer that travel doesn't have to break the bank. Let me help you take the guess work out of so many options to choose from, and turn your dreams into a reality. No group is too big or small.


Had an amazing and awesome time. The trip was very well planned and put together. Enjoyed the amazing group of women and the travel agent Nicole was fun throughout the trip. I really enjoyed Thailand it was beautiful and the food was great. This was my first time traveling with this group and I can honestly say it won’t be my last. Looking forward to traveling with them again everything was amazing

This adventure was one for the books! This was a fantastic experience as usual with Art n Soul. Nikki is a top notch agent, and will make sure your travel experience is excellent. The bookings and excursions were very well planned to get the most out of the trip. Thailand had so much to do and see, and we tried to fit it all into our week. I definitely look forward to the next adventure.

Ruthie, Thank you so much for the glowing review. It was good to have you on one of our adventures again. Agreed--there is definitely a lot to see in a short time. And we hope that the long plane ride was worth it. Thanks for your continued support.

I wish I could give this trip 10 stars! I really enjoyed my family. Our cabin was a great size, my son enjoyed camp ocean and meeting new friends! Art N Soul Escapes welcomed us with chocolate covered strawberries and a bottle of Champagne. I highly recommend booking with them as they are very professional and we didn’t even have to call them with any issues. Lol Thanks for helping our family plan our annual trip!

We had a great time on the cruise! It was just what we needed to connect with family and have fun. Nikki was the perfect agent as she worked tirelessly to ensure everything was setup correctly. Never failing to answer any question no matter how simple or redundant. Her patience is superb! We’re already looking forward to planning another trip!

I had a great time with the group I traveled with to Greece. I will remember the special ladies who were absolutely helpful every step of the way. There were lots of things to do, the food was great, and there was enough free to explore on your own! Looking forward to traveling with them again.
By Vicki L D for Glamorous Greece on Jun 14, 2023
Thank you Vicki! We enjoyed having you on the trip as well. Don't be a stranger.

I’ve used Art N Soul Escapes for small getaways as well as for grand vacays and I’ve always been satisfied. One of the main reasons I love this agency is because the agents are well-traveled and I think it’s important to work with a team that has experience with seeing the world. It doesn’t matter if you are going on a domestic or international trip, a solo vacay or family reunion Art N Soul Escapes is the best travel agency to use!! #BookWithArtNSoulEscapes

I had wonderful experiences with Art N Soul Escapes Travel Agency. This agency has planned five trips for me. And, I continue to use this agency because I always have positive experiences. From the prompt responses to my questions to the great accommodations and best of all the budget friendly payments arrangements. I would recommend Art N Soul Escapes Travel Agency for anybody who wants to have an experience vs. just another trip.
