Southeast Asia is a land where city streets hum with tireless motion and sugary beaches spill out toward the far reaches of sight. To travel beyond familiarity's borders, take a look at life from the other side of the planet—you'll get an eyeful on this eight-day Escape to Thailand from Globotours. Stretch your mind in Bangkok, Thailand's churning capital city. Here, urban life whirls through open-air flower markets, winding among silk peddlers and mingling with the curried aromas of street carts. The next leg of your trip brings you to the tropical beaches of Phuket, where the water is turquoise and the sandy shorelines stretch for miles.

The globe will never seem so big as it does on your first trip to Southeast Asia. And while you're busy discovering another world, you just might learn something about your own.

Day 1: Depart from IAH, LAX, SFO, IAD, or JFK International Airports on a flight to Bangkok.

Day 2: Touch down in Bangkok where you'll transfer to your luxurious accommodations at The Sukhothai Bangkok. Rooms recall the palatial salons of the ancient Thai capital of Sukhothai, and are furnished with the finest Thai silks and smooth teakwood.

Day 3: In the morning, visit three of the most famous Wats in Bangkok: Wat Traimit, Wat Pho, and Wat Benchamabophit. Wat Traimit houses a massive, solid-gold Buddha image; Wat Pho, which features the largest reclining Buddha image in the country, as well as the Chedi of the kings, is Bangkok's oldest and largest temple; and Wat Benchamabophit—a modern temple—is constructed from white Carrara marble, decorated with lacquer and gold. Afterward, you'll have the remainder of the day to do as you please.

Day 4: Explore the city at your leisure.

Day 5: Transfer to the airport for your flight to Phuket. Situated off the west coast of Thailand in the Andaman Sea, Phuket is the country's largest island. Upon your arrival, head to the Angsana Laguna Phuket for check-in. With its stately arched roofs, free-flowing spaces, and on-site waterways, this elegant resort reflects the best of traditional Thai architecture.

Days 6 to 7: You'll have two full days to relax, shop, and tour this stunning island at your leisure.

Day 8: Head to the airport to board your return flight.

  • "With a long coastline (well, actually, two coastlines) and jungle-topped islands anchored in azure waters, Thailand is a tropical getaway for the hedonist and the hermit, the prince and the pauper."
