About this trip

 Bangkok ~ Ayutthaya ~ Chiang Mai 


This tour starts in Bangkok and ends in Chiang Mai. These are your arrival and departure airports. 

Thailand

Friendly and food-obsessed, hedonistic and historic, cultured and curious, Thailand tempts visitors with a smile as golden as the country’s glittering temples and tropical beaches.

Bangkok

It’s the contradictions that provide the City of Angels with its complex, multifaceted personality. Here, climate-controlled megamalls sit side by side with 200-year-old village homes; gold-spired temples share space with neon-lit strips of sleaze; slow-moving traffic is bypassed by long-tail boats plying the canals and riverways; Buddhist monks dressed in robes shop for the latest smartphones; and streets lined with food carts are overlooked by restaurants perched on top of skyscrapers. As Bangkok races towards the future, these contrasts are only poised to increase and intensify, even while supplying the city with its unique and ever-evolving notion of Thai cosmopolitanism.


Ayutthaya

Enigmatic temple ruins are strewn across the modern city of Ayutthaya (อยุธยา), whispering of its heyday as one of the world’s wealthiest and most cosmopolitan cities. Once replete with gilded temples and treasure-laden palaces, this island capital of Siam was brutally sacked by the Burmese in 1767. Today, dozens of ruins remain from this period of thriving trade and art and offer a tantalizing glimpse into its glorious past. Standing among towering stupas, it’s easy to imagine how international merchants visiting from around the globe were left in awe.


Chiang Mai

A sprawling, modern city has grown up around ancient Chiang Mai (เชียงใหม่).  The historic centre of Chiang Mai still feels overwhelmingly residential, more like a sleepy country town than a bustling capital. If you drive in a straight line in any direction, you’ll soon find yourself in the lush green countryside and pristine rainforests dotted with churning waterfalls, serene wát and peaceful country villages – as well as a host of markets, farms and tea plantations.


A Bountiful Table

Adored around the world, Thai cuisine expresses fundamental aspects of Thai culture: it is generous, warm, refreshing and relaxed. Thai dishes rely on fresh, local ingredients – pungent lemongrass, searing chillies and plump seafood. A varied national menu is built around the four fundamental flavours: spicy, sweet, salty and sour.  Our roving appetites will visit noodle shacks, floating markets, the Chines Quarter and eat fresh seafood caught that day.

This was a lovely outing with friends. High Tea was served in in such a pleasant and appropriate setting with china, silver and crystal abounding . The food served was lovely and quite filling. Various teas and coffee were readily available and topped up when wanted. We enjoyed ambling along the street till we reached the candle shop where we were educated on the soy wax candles and diffusers. Having to guess some of the various scents available was an interesting and fun activity and a different kind of interlude. All in all it was a relaxing, friendly and slightly different outing and very enjoyable - thanks Tammy.

I had a wonderful time on this Retreat. This was the first one I had done and I was travelling alone. Upon meeting Tammie I was totally at ease and impressed by her organisational skills. Tammie is a very friendly host with a great sense of humour. The girls I met were all lovely and like minded. The food was sensational...I would say some of the best I've eaten. Location was beautiful and the trip to Eumundi markets was really lovely. Tammie's special touches eg small gifts and organising the singer/guitarist on our last night were really appreciated. I came away feeling very relaxed and refreshed. I would highly recommend Tammie as a tour organiser and hope to join one of her tours in the not too distant future.

My third retreat with Vibrant Women and it was, as ever, a blissful event. Tranquil environment, delectable food, inspiring and nourishing content and practices, topped off by fantastic company with like-minded and yet a diverse mix of individuals. I cannot recommend Tammie and Vibrant Women enough - whoever you are and whatever you're seeking, there's bound to be something in one of these retreats for you.

l have travelled with Tammie on many retreats: Bali, Fiji, Vanuatu, Awaba, Mount Alford and Port Douglas. Each retreat is a different experience with the same amount of care taken to ensure you feel safe and well catered for. There is always the right amount of adventure, local experiences and down time. The camaraderie between the women is warm and often hilarious. Tammie's organisational skills and attention to detail are smooth and seamless, which make for a most enjoyable experience. Western Australia here I come. Cheryl
