Itinerary

Day 1: Bangkok

You will be picked up from Bangkok Suvarnabhumi International airport at Gate No.3. Your tour will start with a visit to The Royal Grand Palace, where the Kings of Thailand once resided and a spectacular example of an ancient Siamese court. Stroll around the Funeral Palace, Reception Palace, Throne Hall, Coronation Hall, Royal Guest House, and the beautiful Emerald Buddha Temple. After lunch, you can enjoy a voyage of discovery through the canals of Thonburi on a long-tailed boat, observing the venerable temples sitting among lush greenery, wooden houses built on stilts, coconut groves, garlanded shrines and spirit houses. Experience the “Venice of the East” with vendors selling goods from their boats. Life along the river and canal is an integral part of the Thai culture, and a boat cruise gives visitors the chance to see traditions that have barely changed with the passage of time. Your guide will then take you to Wat Pho, with the largest sleeping Buddha in Thailand. This temple tops the list of six first-class royal temples in Thailand and recognized by UNESCO in its Memory of the World Programme.
