Thailand presents an exotic blend of modern and ancient cultures that provide the backdrop for unforgettable meetings and incentive experiences. Destination Asia DMC highlights six of the best experiences for groups…
Five Senses Explorer, Bangkok
Bangkok Five Senses takes you through a series of sense-led experiences in the city. Jump on a Tuk Tuk ride through Bangkok’s Rattanakosin Island and make a stop at Baan Bat Village, the only remaining village of three established by Rama I. Here we can witness (Sight) local villagers’ hand-crafting monks’ bowls just as they always have since the 1700s. We then visit Golden Mountain and listen (hearing) to the elegant sound of Tahi bells.
Continue to the Flower Market, a blaze of colour where the air is filled with heavenly scents (Smell). From a floor of dazzling flowers, we head up to a hidden balcony that is home to a Thai kitchen. Here we join a one-hour hands-on cooking session (Touch). Ending the day with your own cooked lunch (Taste).
Elephant Observation Programme, Chiang Mai
A fantastic chance to get to know how professional mahouts live and work alongside their elephants. Discover how this unique relationship is formed and how the mahouts put their lives in the hands of their elephant every day. Find out about their daily practices and learn the secrets to becoming an elephant mahout.
We start with an introduction to the elephants themselves, taking part in a class on health care, language used to communicate with them before trying your own hand at some practices. There are a number of highlights to this day that will always be fondly remembered.
Private Catamaran Boat Club, Phuket
Take advantage of a private catamaran, and literally head out to sea on your personal private beach club. We sail you in style and comfort around a selection of the Andaman Sea’s most stunning islands in a luxurious catamaran. This high-end catamaran features comfortable daybeds, cabanas, a scrumptious selection of food, beverages and professional crew and hostesses.
This is the ideal way to reward hard-working employees. Enjoy the glorious tropical sea, glistening under the sun with sandy beaches dotting the horizon. An in-house DJ entertains guests by spinning the latest lounge music to create a truly unforgettable experience.

Samui in a 4X4, Koh Samui
Jumping on a 4×4 is the perfect way to see this stunning tropical island. Head out on an exciting off-road journey for the ultimate orientation in Ko Samui. Discover its most famous attractions and areas of outstanding beauty on a tour that starts with a pick-up from your hotel by 4WD truck. We head to Lamai to see one of the nature’s peculiar wonders – grandma and grandpa rocks.
Then head through the jungle and up to the spectacular Na Muang waterfalls to take a refreshing bath, swimming in large natural pools. After a delicious Thai lunch at a mountain top restaurant, visit the viewpoint near Chaweng which offers splendid views over to the big Buddha and Koh Phangan.

White Water Rafting in Phang Nga
Prepare yourself for an amazing jungle adventure in Phang Nga’s Ton Pariwat Wildlife Sanctuary, one of southern Thailand’s greatest natural attractions. Begin the day with a splash of adrenaline. Climb onto rafts for a pulsating ride downstream and over white-water rapids. In groups you are assigned a boat with a guide who instructs you on how to tackle the rapids.
Paddle in hand you navigate the course of the stream, with plenty of time to also admire the stunning surrounding landscape. You’ll then continue to the park’s elephant camp, where an elephant trek along a cool and shady trail will give you a unique perspective of the jungle.
Chaophraya Retreat, Bangkok
Enjoy the wonders of Bangkok from the relaxing deck of a converted rice barge as it leisurely winds its way down the majestic Chaophraya River. This brunch cruise takes place on a converted rice barge, passing by historic Bangkok landmarks such as the gleaming Wat Arun and Wichai Prasit Fort. Guests disembark the boat and enter Wat Kalayanamitr for a private monk blessing ceremony.
Monks will chant their mantras and sprinkle holy water to bring good luck. Then continue to the peaceful and small Kudichine community, an area known for its mix of different races, religions and culture. Wandering around the small alleys, we meet with the residents and learn about their local ways.
