2 Weeks in the Land of Smiles

Welcome to Thailand, where the smiles are as abundant as the pad thai, and the beaches are more photogenic than your entire Instagram feed combined. Buckle up, buttercup – we’re about to embark on a whirlwind tour of the Land of Smiles that’ll leave you breathless, sunburned, and possibly sporting a questionable bamboo tattoo.

Day 1-3


Grand Palace Bangkok scaled

City of Angels (and Endless Traffic)

Sawadee ka! Welcome to Bangkok, where the streets are hot, the food is spicy, and the traffic is… well, let’s just say you might want to consider walking. Spend your first day getting lost in the labyrinthine streets of Chinatown, where you’ll find everything from gold shops to durian vendors (hold your nose, folks).

Must-do activities:

  • Visit the Grand Palace (because nothing says “vacation” like sweating through your clothes in a temple)
  • Explore Wat Pho and the Reclining Buddha (it’s big, it’s gold, it’s… reclining)
  • Take a sunset river cruise on the Chao Phraya (just don’t fall in – trust me on this one)

Day 4-6

Chiang Mai

The Rose of the North

Time to head north to Chiang Mai, where the pace slows down, the air cools off (slightly), and you can pretend you’re not a tourist for approximately 5 minutes.


  • Visit an elephant sanctuary
  • Take a Thai cooking class (spoiler alert: everything involves fish sauce)
  • Explore the Sunday Night Market (prepare to buy things you absolutely don’t need)

Day 7-9


Limestone Karsts and Island Hopping

Next stop: Krabi, where the beaches are pristine, the limestone cliffs are jaw-dropping, and you’ll finally get those Instagram shots you’ve been dreaming of.

Don’t miss:

  • Island hopping to Koh Phi Phi (yes, it’s touristy, but it’s touristy for a reason)
  • Rock climbing at Railay Beach (harness up and pray you didn’t skip arm day)
  • Kayaking through mangrove forests (watch out for monkeys – they’re cute but crafty)

Day 10-12

Koh Samui

Island Paradise (with a Side of Luxury)

Welcome to Koh Samui, where coconut groves meet luxury resorts, and you can finally justify that overpriced cocktail on the beach.

To-do list:

  • Visit the Big Buddha statue (it’s big, it’s Buddha – what more do you need?)
  • Relax on Chaweng Beach (or party, if that’s your thing)
  • Take a day trip to Ang Thong Marine Park (it’s like being in a postcard, but with more sweat)

Day 13-14


One Last Hurrah

Back to where it all began. Spend your last day shopping till you drop at Chatuchak Weekend Market, indulging in a Thai massage (prepare for contortions you didn’t know were possible), and toasting to your adventure at a rooftop bar.

As you board your flight home, reflect on the whirlwind adventure you’ve just had. Your taste buds may never be the same, your skin might be a shade darker, and your heart… well, it’s probably already planning your next trip back.
