Days 1–4: Bangkok

Your trip begins with an overnight flight to Thailand’s capital city, Bangkok. Bright and early on Day 3, the group pays a visit to the Temple of the Golden Buddha to behold the largest Buddha statue on earth, which weighs in at a whopping 5-plus tons. The city’s nearby flower markets overflow with rare orchids, lotuses, and vibrant marigolds—considered a lucky charm in Thailand. The day ends with a tour of a silk factory and the Wat Pho temple, home to a reclining Buddha statue.

There’s no set itinerary on Day 4, so you can explore the city on your own or take part in an optional boat ride ($60 per person) that passes the distinctive golden spires of the Grand Palace.

Day 5: River Kwai

Journey northwest to see the famous bridge over the River Kwai, built in World War II by prisoners of war and featured in David Lean’s classic film. The balance of the evening can be spent relaxing or taking part in an optional half-hour elephant ride and raft trip along the river ($45 per person).

Days 6–8: Ayutthaya and Pattaya

Now a UNESCO World Heritage Site, Ayutthaya was the capital of Thailand—then known as Siam—for several centuries. On a tour of the city, you’ll see temples dating back to this era, many with intricately carved stone spires. The Bang Pa-In Palace features a mix of Gothic, Chinese, and Baroque architectural styles as well as a topiary garden filled with shrubs pruned to resemble elephants, rabbits, and Joan Rivers.

On your way to Pattaya, which sits along the Gulf of Thailand, you’ll make a pit stop in Sri Racha (yes, the hot sauce originated here) to visit a tiger zoo and crocodile farm.

Days 9–11: Beijing

The final leg of the trip brings you to China’s bustling capital city. It’s rife with culture and history, from sites used in the 2008 Olympics to Tiananmen Square, where you’ll find the Monument to the People’s Heroes, a 120-foot granite obelisk that honors China’s fallen soldiers. While you’re in Beijing, you can use some of your free time to see the hundreds of imperial palaces and buildings that make up the Forbidden City or hike along a portion of the Great Wall ($28 per person and $49 per person, respectively).
