Essential of Bangkok

Morning drive to Wat Pho - one of the oldest temples in Bangkok, Wat Pho houses the famous 45m (148ft) reclining Buddha as well as the original school of traditional Thai massage. From here, take a tuk-tuk ride via Pak Klong Taland Flower Market towards the spectacular Grand Palace, home to the most revered Buddha image in Thailand, the Emerald Buddha (which is actually made of jade or jasper, rather than emerald). Continue with a walk to the pier for a long-tailed boat ride along the “klongs” (canals) of Thonburi to get a flavor of local life. Stop at Wat Arun, once the grand royal temple to King Rama II. After lunch at a local restaurant, cross the river and drive to Chinatown for a first-hand look at Old Bangkok. Walk along Yaowarat Road with shops selling everything from gold and garments to antiques and musical instruments. Explore the bustling Talad Kao Market where a variety of food, fresh and dry fruits, and Chinese herbs are on offer before returning to your hotel. Dinner on own.

Damnoen Saduak Floating Market - The Jim

Depart early morning for the 2hr drive to the 100-year-old Damnoen Saduak floating market located 100km (62mi) from Bangkok. This vibrant, most famous of local markets features numerous small boats laden with colorful fruits and vegetables, paddled by Thai women wearing bamboo hats, and is one of the only places to see this traditional way of buying and selling goods in Thailand. Almost always crowded with hundreds of sellers, buyers and tourists, the best way to experience the bustling atmosphere of the market up close is to board a boat and float through the small canals purchasing fresh local produce from the vendors. This floating market is one of the most photographed places in Thailand and certainly a Bangkok icon. No lunch is included in this tour, but there is plenty of opportunity to enjoy a snack at the market. Drive back to Bangkok. NOTE: • Availability: Morning • Suggested departure time: 07:00 • Tour duration: 06 hours Travelers from all over the world know the story of Jim Thompson, the American Thai Silk Tycoon, and the mystery of his disappearance. But very few visitors know that the other half of his compelling story is still alive and hidden on other side of the canal right across his house. ‘Ban Krua’ is a century-old Muslim community that has inherited the refined skill of silk weaving from their ancestors who migrated from Cambodia and Vietnam at the end of the 18th century. The Muslims from Champa Kingdom built their house alongside the canal and with them brought the silk-waving traditions that Jim Thompson later discovered and decided to build his silk company right next to these skilled weavers in 1950s. Our tour will first start at visiting Jim Thompson’s House Museum, a Thai-style house of Jim Thompson, the legendary American businessman who came to Thailand at the end of World War II and rediscovered the Thai silk industry. His house is now a museum filled with fascinating Asian antiques and historical memorabilia. The house consists of six separate old Ayutthaya period Thai teakwood houses put together as one. His mysterious disappearance in the Cameron Highlands in Malaysia remains a mystery to this day. After visiting Jim Thompson House, we will take you through a hidden walk way and visit the last of his original weavers who still produce silk. Meet the silk dying and the weaver family who spent their childhood years watching Jim Thompson crossing over to their homes every morning to visit his suppliers and their families. Watch the artisans at work, and listen to the history and traditions of these unique weavers. After visiting the community, we will take you back to your hotel or transfer to your next travel program. NOTES: • Suggested time: 13:00 • Approximate duration: 4 hours • Capacity: 1 - 6 persons • Private transfer, Join-In activities at the museum and private activities at the weaver house • In the event of extreme traffic conditions, our driver may take you to the pier (located directly across from the Peninsula hotel) to transfer you by their shuttle boat in order to save time; or vice versa. Our guide will accompany you to and/or from the Peninsula. Meals: Breakfast Read more
