Cross out all the cumbrance and generic itineraries in your travel plan. X2 (CrossTo) has announced its brand-new super-exclusive package for busy people who want an ultimate experience of Thailand in a week-long tour, taking you around the country in one glimpse by its ultra-luxury private jets. The destinations are also deliberately selected and will be introduced here prior to your decision.
Kui Buri, Prachuap Khiri khan
Kui Buri is one of seaside town situated nearby popular destination like Hua Hin and Cha-am. Named for a national park, the location is charming with its serenity and modesty. Discover a tranquil beach in the midst of an authentic fishing village and foray into the magnificent icons like Klai Kangwon Palace, the royal weekend house, and Phraya Nakorn Cave, where you’ll be dazzled by a shining pavilion glittered with sunlight.
The world’s most renowned resort island is well known as the Pearl of the Andaman. There lies a stunning Bang Tao beach, one of the island’s most prestigious, longest and most beautiful beaches. With its rich tin mining and trading heritage, you can still find its glorious past throughout the town, especially on its unique architectural buildings and culture. And if you would like an island-hopping, Koh Tachai is one of the recommended with its paragon of pure white sand and tropical island beauty undeveloped and pristine.
River Kwai, Kanchanaburi
Fly to the west, where River Kwai flows like the slice of heaven in Kanchanaburi district. It’s hard to imagine that this was once hell on earth for the poor prisoners of war forced to build the ‘Bridge over the River Kwai’, part of the notorious Thai-Burma Railway built by the Japanese in World War 2. Kanchanaburi is also the largest of the western provinces of Thailand, renowned for its forests, mountains, caves and waterfalls. Its tragic history only just enhances its beautiful and mysterious nature.
Chiang Mai is northern Thailand’s largest city and the most culturally significant. Its ancient city walls in the midst of its trendiest new precincts make this place a perfect combination of past and present. The über-stylish Nimmanahaeminda Road is clustered with the boutiques, coffee shops, cafes and galleries that bring its new face of the ‘Rose of the North’ to vibrant life.
Chiang Rai is a short hop further north from Chiang Mai, and makes up part of the Golden Triangle where Thailand, Burma and Laos converge, with China’s southern tip a stone’s throw away. The never-to-miss destination will be Wat Rong Khun, better known as ‘The White Temple’, the one-man labour of love of controversial Thailand National Artist Chalermchai Kositpipat, with his brilliant brushstrokes and scintillating sculptures.
Pattaya is slowly but surely shedding the shackles of its lurid reputation as a more wholesome and family-friendly place begins to emerge. The nocturnal menagerie of Walking Street still exists, but you can choose to enjoy an unforgettable sunset and overnight cruise on some secluded beaches instead. The dazzle of sunset ceding to the glittering threads of lights along the Eastern Seaboard is so mesmerising that this place will once again captivate your heart.
Every trip to Thailand should sum up with the City of Angels. Bangkok is the capital city and also the centre of Thai culture. The timeless majesty of the Chao Phraya River which runs through the city always impresses the visitors. What better way to close out the week’s whirl-wind and bring down the curtain on this adventure of a lifetime than to climb on board to the river cruises for a couple of leisurely hours exploring the nooks and crannies and lesser known charms of the city, river and canal network.
