ROYAL GRAND PALACE AND TEMPLE TOUR

Today’s tour includes three of the most important Buddhist temples in Bangkok. Wat Traimit, also known as the temple of the Golden Buddha, houses a 3-metre-tall statue made from solid gold, weighing 5.5 tonnes. You will then pass through Chinatown on your way to Wat Pho, the temple of the Reclining Buddha and home to the Chedis of the Kings. 46 metres long and 15 metres high, this Buddha is the largest in Bangkok and it illustrates the passing of the Buddha into nirvana. The Grand Palace is one of the most beautiful samples of an ancient Siamese court. It used to be the residence of the Kings of Bangkok (closed during royal ceremonies and during visits of heads of state). Here you will see palaces which were used for different occasions: the Funeral Palace, the Reception Palace, the Throne Hall, the Coronation Hall, the Royal Guest House, and Wat Phra Keo, the beautiful Emerald Buddha Temple. To round off the tour, call in at a local lapidary factory and showroom where you will be able to get locally made jewellery, handicrafts and silk at competitive prices. Overnight in Bangkok on selected board basis. Read more

Bangkok

FULL- DAY FLOATING AND RAILWAY MARKET

Discover the world’s most famous floating market: Damnoen Saduak. On the way to the floating market, visit a Coconut Sugar Farm and look around the farmhouse to see how they process the coconut sugar. You can also taste a few things prepared freshly there. Head out to the floating market by long-tailed boat, sightseeing along the canal. Experience the colourful market and watch the merchants as they paddle along the congested canals in sturdy canoes laden with fresh fruits and vegetables to sell to shoppers on the river bank. On the way to our next stop, see the natural monkeys in the Conservation Mangrove Centre, which we will drive through. Arrive to Don Hoi Lot and lunch is served at a seafood restaurant. Continue to Maeklong Railway Market, or ‘Talad Rom Hoop’ in Thai. Upon arrival, the guide will introduce you to the history of the area. See the action that takes place for several minutes before the train is due to pass through the market. The process happens so quickly it will amaze you. Overnight in Bangkok on selected board options. Lunch included on all board options. Read more

Visit the historical Wat Suan Dok and admire its 48-metre-high Sri Lankan-style chedi, which overlooks the Royal Cemetery. Continue to Wat Phra Sing in the old town and appreciate the beauty of this large complex comprising more than 60 buildings before visiting the 14th-century Wat Chedi Luang in the very heart of the old city. This ancient temple has a more rustic appearance and has been restored after decades of decay. Discover, too, the nearby Wat Chet Yot and Wat Chiang Man. Due to its age, the Chet Yot temple betrays some signs of ruin while the Chiang Man temple is renowned for its numerous elephant sculptures. Overnight in Chiang Mai on selected board option.

Leonell, United States

Amazing short trip to know one corner of THailand. The guide was outstanding and we were travelling in a small multy nationality tour ( great great experience) , I booked as well the 3 days city break in Bangkok with DS , all the pick ups and transfers were perfect ¡¡¡ Thanks

Wendy, United States

Overall the tour was good. Hotel accommodations could be improved as we felt isolated in a couple of the hotel areas. There was free time a couple times with nowhere to go as the hotels were not close to anything.

Cynthia, United States

We had fun and learned a lot about the country. The guide Charlie was very knowledgeable. Vehicle was comfortable and had wifi built it. Driving times were not too long and we stopped for breaks as needed. Hotels and the food provided were also very good.
