Day-By-Day 2017 / 2018

DAY
1
Siem Reap, Cambodia

Welcome to Siem Reap, your base for exploring the temples of Angkor. Constructed between the 9th and 13th centuries, the temples are unmatched among the world’s ancient ruins. Your hotel room is available for mid-afternoon check-in.

DAY
2
Siem Reap

Your PRIVATE GUIDED TOUR starts at the best preserved of all the temples—ANGKOR WAT, honoring the Hindu god Vishnu. Next stop is ANGKOR THOM to see BAYON TEMPLE. One of the few Buddhist temples in Angkor, it features some 200 striking faces carved in 54 towers. Enjoy the afternoon at leisure.

DAY
3
Siem Reap

This morning, explore more of the Angkor temple complex on a PRIVATE GUIDED TOUR. Visit BANTEAY SREI, a unique, small temple built from red sandstone and dedicated to the Hindu god Shiva. Then, on to TA PROHM, which has been left relatively untouched, unlike many other temples. Here, the jungle surrounds you, and tree roots grow over and through the ruins. The afternoon is at your leisure.

DAY
4
Siem Reap–Bangkok, Thailand

Today, fly to Bangkok, Thailand’s capital city.

DAY
5
Bangkok

Today’s PRIVATE GUIDED TOUR starts with a BOAT RIDE through the klongs, Bangkok’s canals, to see family homes, temples, and the way of life that gives this city the nickname “Venice of the East.” Stop at Wat Arun, the TEMPLE OF THE DAWN, whose 260-foot-tall spire has become identified with Bangkok. Continue on to the GRAND PALACE, comprised of the Funeral Palace, the Reception Palace, the Throne Hall, the Coronation Hall, the Royal Guest House, and the TEMPLE OF THE EMERALD BUDDHA. Also visit the TEMPLE OF THE RECLINING BUDDHA, the oldest and largest Buddhist temple in Bangkok. It houses more than 1,000 Buddha images, including the 49-foot-high and 151-foot-long massive Reclining Buddha.

DAY
6
Bangkok

Enjoy a full day at leisure to explore on your own. Your Local Host can help with suggestions to help maximize your time. Perhaps consider a visit to Jim Thompson’s House, a dinner cruise on the Chao Phraya River, or an excursion to the colorful floating market at Damnoen Saduak.

DAY
7
Bangkok–Chiang Mai

Today, fly to Chiang Mai, Thailand’s second-largest city.

DAY
8
Chiang Mai

Today, your PRIVATE GUIDED TOUR begins with a visit to WAT PHRA SINGH with its famous Buddha image, and WAT DOI SUTHEP, a temple tucked away in the mountains. For the final ascent to the temple, you can take a tram car or walk up the Naga (dragon-headed serpent) staircase, with more than 300 steps. On a clear day, you will enjoy spectacular views of Chiang Mai. The remainder of the day is at your leisure.

DAY
9
Chiang Mai

Today, take a PRIVATE GUIDED EXCURSION outside the city to BAAN TONG LUANG to visit several hill tribe groups, including the AKHA, known for gorgeous headdresses decorated with silver coins, and the KAREN, home to the PADAUNG LONG-NECKED WOMEN. Early in life, brass rings are placed on the necks of the village girls and as they mature, additional rings are added. This pushes the collarbone down and compresses the rib cage, creating the illusion of stretching their necks. You will also stop at an ORCHID FARM. The remainder of the day is at your leisure.

DAY

Chiang Mai–Phuket

Today, fly to Phuket. The remainder of the day is at your leisure.

Siem Reap

Meet one of your Local Hosts in Siem Reap, CambodiaMonograms provides travelers access to a Local Host®, so you will have someone on hand to answer those vacation questions pertaining to Siem Reap. No waiting in line at the concierge desk or trying to ask your waitress at breakfast directions to the shopping district. Simply ask your Local Host® about Siem Reap and you'll be on your way in no time. Plus, your Local Host ®will share local Siem Reap insights and share suggestions for getting off the beaten path, leaving you more time to create lasting vacation memories that are yours alone.

Meet a Local Host®

Hi, I'm Bunrith. I was born in Siem Reap and spent all my time there until I graduated high school in 1993. My first job was with a hotel and later, in 1998, I became a guide. I have been a full-time guide since and enjoy showing guests my home city and the surrounds.

Psar Chaa

Located in the French Quarter of Siem Reap, Psar Chaa or “Old Market” is where locals come to shop for their everyday needs. As with many local markets, Psar Chaa is a great place to wander around and mix with the locals. It is also the best place to sample authentic Khmer food, which has much in common with Thai and Vietnamese cuisine. Rice is the main staple and is often served with pork or fish. Noodles are also popular, as is curry. But for the more adventurous, try the spiced frog, a very satisfying meal. You will also find plenty of shops catering to tourists with items like t-shirts, maps, books, and Buddha heads—all for much less than you would pay in a store. Be prepared to haggle!

Night Market

Distinctly different from Psar Chaa or “Old Market,” the colorful Night Market was created for tourists. Here you will find stalls selling every type of souvenir you can imagine. There is also a bar and a movie mall at one end. It is located close to the main street that is lined with restaurants and bars, so it makes for a good walk after dinner.

Miss Wong

Inspired by old Shanghai this bar is one of Siem Reap’s newest additions. The cherry-red lantern that dangles from the doorway beckons passers-by. Inside, slip into one of the intimate leather booths for an Indochine Martini, a mixture of vodka, ginger cognac and fresh pineapple juice.

Angkor National Museum

The Angkor National Museum features eight chronologically ordered galleries where many Angkor-era artifacts are on display. Several multi-media presentations give an understanding about Angkor history and culture.

Theam’s House

Theam's House is the home of Cambodian artist and designer Lim Muy Theam. Set beside a tranquil environment, the handsome traditional wooden house with its lust tropical garden holds a unique private collection alongside products conceived and created on site. Works demonstrate traditional Khmer arts & craft with a personal touch of design and modernity.

The Khmer Ceramic & Fine Arts Centre

The Khmer Ceramic & Fine Arts Centre is dedicated to the renaissance and appreciation of lost Cambodian art, pottery, ceramics & tableware. Founded in 2006 its goal is to revive the skill and knowledge needed for this technically challenging and beautiful handcrafted art form. Find contemporary tableware, vases, and more inspired by Cambodian culture and environment, that are both functional and decorative.

Simply ask your Local Host about Bangkok and you'll be on your way in no time. Plus, your Local Host will share local Bangkok insights and share suggestions for getting off the beaten path, leaving you more time to create lasting vacation memories that are yours alone.

Meet a Local Host®

I'm Kong. Since 1988, I have worked as a guide and in 2006 I was voted Best Tour Guide (English speaking) at the Thailand Tourism Awards. I love to teach others about Thai culture and how to speak some key words and phrases in Thai. I am approachable and energetic and interactions with my guests are one of the favorite parts of what I do. I look forward to sharing my knowledge of Bangkok with you.

The Blue Elephant

You may decide you can’t get enough of the delicious local flavors, and if that’s the case, spend half a day at The Blue Elephant to learn how to prepare authentic Thai at home. This cooking school takes you through the entire process—from shopping at a market to enjoying your dishes. While it’s somewhat more expensive than a half day of museums and lunch, the long-term benefits are immense.

Lumpini Park

Lumpini Park is an inner-city haven of peace, fresh air and greenery – inviting visitors to connect with nature or enjoy outdoor leisure activities. Named after the birthplace of the Lord Buddha in Nepal, the park is a shady oasis home to various flora and fauna including the eccentric water monitor lizard.

Pratunam-Phetchaburi

Grease the elbows and stretch the knees; it’s time for a hectic shopping experience. There’s something for everyone here—from the bargain-hunter to the clinically fashionable. Clothing, jewelry, crafts, and much more are on full display in this busy area. Make sure you venture behind the street-front vendors to Pratunam Market for international goods. Keep in mind, bargaining here is more about being friendly and respectful.

Apoteka Lux Bar

With an old school feel, the Apoteka Lux Bar is based on an outdated word for pharmacist and emulates a 19th century apothecary. Come for the live music or grab a spot at the patio for a nice place to curl up for a romantic night or meet some friends.

Go Sky High

Bangkok is blessed with several “Sky High” options where you can have dinner and/or drinks with a stunning view over the city. Check out the Octave Rooftop Bar and Lounge on the 45th floor of the Marriot Hotel Sukhumvit for a great sunset or romantic meal with the only 360 degree view of Bangkok. Be prepared to pay a little more but it’s worth it!

Thai massage

There are countless places offering traditional Thai massage in Bangkok. One of the best choices is the Thai Massage School at Wat Pho. Many of the local masseuse and masseurs were taught here, and you can get a 1-hour massage for $15 to $20 USD. You can also learn the techniques for yourself!

Ride a tuk-tuk

These small 3-wheeled vehicles are an interesting way to get around and should be tried by anyone traveling to Bangkok. Make sure to negotiate the fare before sitting down.

Chiang Mai

Plus, your Local Host will share local Chaing Mai insights and share suggestions for getting off the beaten path, leaving you more time to create lasting vacation memories that are yours alone.

Meet a Local Host®

My name is Kim and Chiang Mai is my home town. I was born and grew up here. I'll never move to another city because I love my culture and my city, and I'm excited to share it with other people from around the world.

Night Bazaar

Spanning several blocks, this large market features food and Thai goods at great prices. Local handicrafts like carvings, jewelry, silk, and hand-woven fabrics are an especially good value here, because they are made in such close proximity. The other big draw is the street food, which is some of the best in the world. So make sure you have room in your stomach. Give yourself a couple of hours to explore fully.

Hike or Bike

The mountains surrounding the city are the best thing about Chiang Mai. You can hire a guide to help you explore them or go on your own if you are experienced. Either way, exploring the jungle on foot or on a bike is a rewarding experience.

Doi Inthanon National Park

Drive along the winding road to Doi Inthanon, the highest peak in Thailand. The Park is known for its incredible views, including Watchiratharn waterfall and the twin Chedis. Late January through February, you may be lucky enough to catch the beautiful, pink, Siamese sakura flowers in full bloom.

Baan Tawai

Baan Tawai Village is known for Thai handicrafts and handmade items that reflect the history and local way of life. Find brilliant wood carvings as a great souvenir of your travels.

I am Khun Teera, and I was born in southern Thailand. In early 1994, I started my career in the tourism business as a tour guide in Phuket. I have been doing it ever since. I have an easy-going manner and enjoy sharing extensive knowledge of all things Phuket with visitors.

Beach

Let’s face it, you are going to Phuket to relax at the beach, and you won’t be disappointed! There are countless beaches on Phuket offering white sands and warm inviting waters.

Phuket Old Town

Stroll along the streets of old Phuket town, where you can see Chinese heritage preserved in the Sino-Portuguese shop houses, temples, and local cuisine.

Phuket Tuk Tuk

Phuket’s Tuk Tuks won’t be confused with the kind you find on the mainland. These little red trucks – different from the three-wheelers seen in Bangkok – are a handy way to get around, but fares are higher when compared with other parts of Thailand, especially if catching one in Paton or Kata-Karon. Bargaining before departing is essential.
