Thailand is a destination with an extraordinarily rich history that is clearly displayed in every corner of the stunning nation. With breathtaking, endlessly varied, natural landscapes and cities populated with authentic architecture and majestic temples, Thailand has been attracting culture and adventure seekers for decades.

However, it is Thailand’s recent history in cinema that is giving it a newfound cultural identity. All the unique factors that make this country attractive to travellers also makes it the perfect place for movie crews to start the cameras rolling.

From James Bond to Rambo to Fast and Furious, Thailand has hosted some of the most iconic moments ever seen on the big screen, and this tour invites you to see all of them in person. Jam-packed with movie magic, you will also discover the natural, historical, and architectural gems that make Thailand so special.

Itinerary

As soon as you have cleared customs at Bangkok Airport you will be met by one of our destination guides and transferred to the Mandarin Oriental Bangkok, set directly on the banks of the Chao Phraya River. Mandarin Oriental was featured in the 1974 James Bond Movie “The Man with the Golden Gun” and is where the crew and Roger Moore stayed during filming.
This morning, whiz along Bangkok’s klongs (canals) by long tailed boat, not quite at the speed of James Bond, but it’s an exhilarating experience, nonetheless. You will explore the bustling streets of Chinatown and in the afternoon your private guided tour takes you to a variety of Bangkok’s most beautiful temples, including Grand Palace & Wat Po.
Kanchanaburi
This morning, transfer by private vehicle to Kanchanaburi, with its WWII history and The Bridge over the River Kwai, also the setting for the 1957 epic war movie of the same name. Here you will visit the Thailand-Burma Railway Museum and the Allied War Cemetery. Other movies that have bet set in the region include 1989’s “Casualties of War” and the 1978 movie “The Deer Hunter”.
Kanchanaburi
Transfer to Bangkok Airport for your short domestic flight to Thailand’s mountainous northern region of Chiang Mai. Until 1558, Chiang Mai was the capital of the independent Lanna Kingdom. It is home to hundreds of temples and a vibrant night market offering local handicrafts and delicious street food.
Tour Chiang Mai, a city with long, leafy boulevards, remnants of the original walls and moats which surrounded the old city and the impressive mountain temple Wat Phra That Doi Suthep. This Buddhist temple was the backdrop of some of the scenes from the 1988 Sylvester Stallone movie, “Rambo III”. The temple is reached via a 306-step staircase and, at the top, the views over the jungle and Chiang Mai are more than worth the climb. Chiang Mai and the surrounding jungles of Doi Suthep-Pui National Park were also filming locations for “Da 5 Bloods”.
Today you will fly from Chiang Mai to Krabi, on Thailand’s south west coast. The coastline could not be more dramatically scenic, with craggy, sheer limestone cliffs, white sandy beaches, dense mangrove forests and hundreds of tropical islands offshore. It is not surprising to hear that it has been the filming location for several movies including "Cutthroat Island" and "Fast & Furious 9". Your hotel this evening was the backdrop for the wedding scene in "Hangover Part II".
James Bond Island
One of the most famous film locations in Thailand must be Khao Phing Kan, now better know as James Bond Island. Explore this beautiful island and it’s sweeping environment by the traditional long tail boat and take in the natural beauty which was the backdrop of Roger Moore’s 1974 James Bond Movie, “The Man with the Golden Gun”.
Koh Phi Phi
Visit the famous Phi Phi Islands for swimming and snorkelling, or just lazing on the beach. The Phi Phi Islands and Bangkok were filming locations for Danny Boyle’s movie “The Beach”. Here you can follow in the footsteps of Leonardo DiCaprio and walk down Phi Phi Leh’s spectacular main beach, Hat Maya, taking in the spectacular lagoon enclosed by towering limestone cliffs, just like he does in the movie.
After check-out from your hotel you will be transferred to Krabi airport for your departure flight.
