Itinerary

Day 1: Arrival in Bangkok and Private Transportation to Hotel   

When you arrive in Bangkok from your international flight our representative will be at the Arrivals Meeting Point, holding a sign with your name. Airport and hotel transfers are not automatically included in the price for this package, so you will have to add them in the booking process, but in Bangkok we only recommend the faster and more convenient Private Transfer, with your own car and driver. This way you will avoid making additional stops along the way and the 19 mile drive from the airport will take approximately 35 to 45 minutes, except during rush hour when it can take up to 60 minutes. Please note however, that Riverside hotels may require an extra 20 minutes.

When choosing your accommodations in Bangkok, there are a few neighborhood areas and hotels we recommend. In the booking process always try to select a hotel near the SkyTrain (BTS) that connects the main shopping, entertainment and business areas in Bangkok.

Siam, considered the heart of Bangkok, benefits from easy access to the SkyTrain, excellent entertainment and restaurant options, and great shopping. Close to the airport and directly on the SkyTrain line, modern Sukhumvit offers trendy restaurants, and an array of shopping and entertainment options. The fashionable Riverside neighborhood houses some of the best hotels with fantastic views and free shuttle-boat service to the SkyTrain.

We have an ample variety of great hotels to choose from in our booking process, and there are a few we recommend. In the Moderate category we suggest Ariyasomvilla Bangkok, Park Plaza Sukhumvit Bangkok, and Silq Bangkok. In the Superior category we point out Chatrium Hotel Riverside, and Pullman King Power. In the Luxury category we propose Mandarin Oriental and Shangri-La.

After settling into your hotel, you may want to decompress by selecting our Center Point Spa Program in the booking process, a 2 ½ hour body scrub and massage. Or perhaps you feel like exploring the city in our City and Temple 3 ½ hour tour. You can customize your Thai experience in the booking process by adding or subtracting activities for each day of your stay.

Day 2: Bangkok

Take advantage of your day in Bangkok by engaging in a full-day activity, like our Grand Palace and Emerald Buddha Temple Tour where you can admire the splendor of Thai royal heritage. Or perhaps you would like to visit Ayutthaya, once one of the wealthiest and most magnificent cities of the Orient, and return to Bangkok on a cruise down the "River of Kings," via our Ayutthaya Tour and Cruising. All activities are customizable in the booking process.

Day 3: Bangkok

On your last day in Bangkok try to explore exotic aspects you may have missed. Consider selecting our Damnernsaduak Floating Market Full Day Tour and sample delicious fruits, fresh fish, and traditional Mekong food on a floating market. You will also have the opportunity to visit a snake fair, ride on an elephant, and partake in a Thai handicrafts workshop. You can experience other flavors of Bangkok by selecting other activities in the booking process.

Day 4: Flight to Phuket 

This morning you will be transferred to the airport for your included flight to Phuket, Thailand's largest and most popular island. Upon arrival, you will be greeted by our representative and escorted to your hotel according to your selected transfer.

You have lots of hotel choices in our booking process, but we recommend a select few according to specific areas in Phuket. Patong is the main shopping and nightlife center, situated right along Patong beach. Here we recommend: The Nap Patong Hotel, and The Millennium Resort.

If you prefer a quiet and less crowded location but still close to Patong's hustle, then Karon Beach and Kata Beach are good choices. In Karon Beach we highlight: Le Meridien Phuket Beach Resort, and Mom Tri's Villa Royale. In Kata Beach we recommend: Avista Phuket Resort and Spa,and Katathani Beach Resort.

With one of the longest and most romantic beaches in Phuket, Bang Tao is home to many luxury resorts. This very relaxing setting is one hour's drive from Patong. In Bang Tao we propose Dusit Thani Laguna Hotel, Laguna Beach Resort, and Banyan Tree Phuket.

A haven to those seeking peace and quiet, Panwa Beach mesmerizes with its beautiful scenery, and shallow waters. Here we recommend: Cape Panwa Hotel, and Regent Phuket Cape Panwa.

On your arrival day to Phuket you may want to relax in your hotel, and enjoy your nearby beaches and surrounding amenities.

Day 5: Phuket   

You can customize your Phuket experience by selecting from numerous activities in the booking process. You may wish to take advantage of your first full day in Phuket by selecting our Phang Nga Bay Excursion where you will travel by boat to enjoy the breathtaking scenery of the 400 km² Phang Nga Bay, and its its protected 42 Islands and waterways. Among them is Ko Tapu Island, famously known as "James Bond Island" after being featured in The Man With The Golden Gun. You will also visit local traditional communities, and a gem gallery along the way.

Or perhaps you would like to engage in a short activity by booking our moving 3-hour Tsunami Memorial Garden Tour. If you have not had enough experiences with elephants in Thailand, you may consider our Elephant Trekking Tour where you can take a short trek through unspoiled tropical scenery.

Day 6: Phuket

You will want to take advantage of your last day in Phuket and enjoy it fully. How about our exciting Phi Phi Island by Jet Cruise: a full-day adventure where you will be sightseeing and visiting many islands and beaches, including the setting for the Leonardo Di Caprio film, The Beach. Perhaps you will enjoy sea kayaking in mesmerizing Phang Nga Bay in our full day Phang Nga Bay Daytrip.

If you have not taken the opportunity to indulge in a Thai body massage, make sure to book our Privilege Body Stress Release Therapy today.

Day 7: Flight Back Home

You will be escorted from your hotel to Phuket Airport for your trip back home. Please note that hotel to airport transfers are not included in this package. Make sure to add transfers to your itinerary in our customizable booking process. We heartily recommend the faster and more convenient Private Transfer option.

Having never used this company before I wasn’t sure what to expect. This was a big trip for us, and my daughter and son in law so I hoped I had chosen the right company to book with. After reading other reviews we decided to go with Tripmasters and were so happy that we did. The website is user friendly and the trip updates were helpful. What really blew us away was the personalized app they provided with all your itinerary information. We definitely will use Tripmasters again and will recommend them to others! Two thumbs up

TripMasters is shady at best. We recently booked through them and paid in full at the time of booking. We needed to make some changes to our itinerary and contacted them to cancel a hotel well within their stated timeframe resulting in a refund. The representative stated it would be applied towards our balance due. We told them we had paid in full at which time they stated the hotel did not accommodate the number of people their website had stated so "they" had paid the difference. Yet they were trying to recoup that money from us because we were unable to print the vouchers needed for our travel! In regards to the refund owed, it's been 16 business days and still no refund. They refuse to provide confirmation numbers regarding your contact with them beyond your booking number.

Consider this company for your transportation needs only as those items are typically non-refundable anyway. Hotels are more flexible with your booking when you book on your own rather than through this company.

I highly recommend Tripmasters after completing a 15-day European vacation with my family. We traveled to 4 countries and 6 cities and all of the arrangements made through Tripmasters went smoothly. Our reservation included international flights, 6 different hotels, multiple train trips and one flight between Germany and Italy and everything was hassle free. I found their website easy to navigate and I liked the ability to add cities to my itinerary and adjust the number of nights spent in each city. One of our train trips required hard-copy tickets and we received a FedEx package 10 days prior to our trip with the required tickets. I also appreciated the Tripmasters App, which provided great information and push notifications; though be advised that they only allow you access to the app 7 days prior to your trip. I used Tripmasters following the recommendation of a friend and I am now telling all my friends about them.

We just got back from our Trip to Italy which included Rome, Florence, Venice, and Milan. I loved booking with Tripmasters. It offered so many Hotels and tours to choose from. I loved the app and while traveling utilized it to chat w/ tripmasters. They replied instantly and any questions and concerns I had were taken care of immediately. I would highly recommend Tripmasters. I have already told several people about how effortless it was to book online. My only issue was in the limited 8 hour window to save the trip. I would have liked to work on it over the course of several days and keep going back and adding to it. I would guess it has something to do with not being able to save hotel choices for a long period of time. At any rate, it was a 5 star experience!

I can not say enough about how incredible our Trip was. I took my daughter for her College Graduation and 21st birthday. It was a Trip of a Lifetime. The price was phenomenal and the Hotel selection was done by Tripmaster all in perfect locations within walking distance to main attractions. The services contracted like Hotel/ Airport transfers were all reliable . My daughter snd I were Vegetarian and a few days before we flew i called customer service yo let them know. They said no problem they would let the airline know. I was a tad skeptical but dure enough the airline had the special meal order. We did Dublin, England, Rome and Paris. I have been recommending to all my Family snd Friends.

After considering for quite some time whether or not to us Tripmasters I decided to take the chance and I'm glad I did. Booked a 14 day trip to Italy (Venice, Florence, Cinque Terre, Rome, and Pompeii). I never had a problem with my flights, hotels, trains, or tour bookings. When my the airline changed one of my flights, Tripmasters notified me right away and informed me of my options, if the change didn't work for me. I will definitely use them for my next vacation. Thank you Tripmasters!
