Lots of visitors to Thailand are happy to spend most or all of their holiday time relaxing in the sun at one of the many beautiful beach resorts that have made the country popular.

And as the tour begins and ends in Bangkok, it makes a great add on to any longer visit to the capital.
Day 1

Then take a long-tailed boat trip to the River Kwai Jungle Rafts or River Kwai Resotel, passing unspoiled mountainous jungle scenery.
