Anytime we travel to Thailand, it's hard for us to resist the temptation to make a short side trip to Siem Reap, Cambodia, to explore the spectacular ruins of Angkor. This tour is the perfect combination of the highlights of both countries, including the bustling city of Bangkok, the tropical beaches of Phuket, the breathtaking scenery and cultural attractions of northern Thailand, and the magnificent ancient ruins of Angkor. Accommodations are among the finest in Asia, including Four Seasons and Aman resorts.

Begin with comprehensive touring in Bangkok. With your own private guide, enjoy a fascinating, private long-tail boat tour through Bangkok's canals. Visit the most important temples. Learn about Buddhist practices and influences on daily life. Hear monks chanting at a morning ceremony. Explore colorful markets selling textiles, flowers, food and crafts. Visit small museums and interesting local neighborhoods. When not sightseeing, enjoy time at the world's leading spa, swim, play tennis, shop for exquisite Thai silks and art work, and dine on some of Southeast Asia's best cuisine.

Next, spend several days in Chiang Mai in northern Thailand. Stay at one of Asia's most luxurious and atmospheric resorts, surrounded by mountains and lush fields of terraced rice paddies. During private touring, visit a revered mountaintop temple and see monks collecting their morning alms. One day, take an excursion to an elephant sanctuary and learn about these fascinating animals. Also explore Chiang Mai's historic temples and wonderful markets. Other optional activities can be arranged, upon request, such as golfing, hiking, biking, shopping excursions, family activities, in-depth Buddhist experiences, cooking classes, rice planting and more.

Continue to one of the islands of the south (Phuket or Koh Samui) and enjoy several days at one of Thailand's leading luxury resorts. Spend your days relaxing on pristine beaches, indulging at the spa, swimming, playing tennis or golf, taking cooking classes or yoga lessons. If desired, Artisans of Leisure can arrange a diving or snorkeling excursion on Koh Samui, or a yacht cruise among the islands of Phang Nga Bay on Phuket.

Next, fly to Siem Reap, Cambodia, to explore incredible Angkor, the wondrous ruins of the ancient Khmer empire. With your private guide, tour the most interesting parts of this UNESCO World Heritage Site, including Angkor Wat, an enormous temple city built as a model of the Hindu universe in stone; Angkor Thom, an ancient capital filled with iconic sites such as the Bayon, Terrace of the Elephants and Terrace of the Leper King; Ta Prohm, a temple being devoured by the jungle; and serene Preah Khan, a former monastery and school. Also visit Banteay Srei, a petite temple with elaborate carvings in pink sandstone, and other lesser-known temples. Additional special-interest activities can also be arranged, such as a cruise on Lake Tonle Sap, bike riding, Khmer cooking lessons, private yoga sessions, visits to orphanages and children's centers, Khmer dance performances, photography excursions, shopping, village tours or chartering a helicopter to remote jungle temples.
Return to Bangkok for some last-minute shopping or touring before departing Thailand.
