Itinerary

Begin your day early and get ready for a unique, relaxing tour of the bustling city of Bangkok.

Allow yourself to absorb the picturesque riverside scene as you make your way through the Chao Phraya river. Taking you away from the mainstream city life, your boat will take a turn into the canals, passing by the local houses to give you a glimpse of the locals going about with their daily lives as your guide will tell you more about the local culture and point out different temples and places of interest. You will then make a stop at Wat Arun that’s popularly called the Temple of Dawn. It stands out from most other temples of Bangkok because of its colorfully decorated spires and the fact that it majestically stands over the water. Once you’re all energized after the relaxing tour, you can choose to head to The Grand Palace- the nation’s landmark and extremely prestigious monument. Occupying nearly one square mile, the palace is the former royal residence of the Chakri Kings and displays the lovely Siamese architecture. Observe the intricate architectural details and take in the positivity from the surroundings. The palace premises comprise various buildings including the Wat Phra Kaew-the Temple of the Emerald Buddha that features a statue of the Buddha in the meditating position that has been carved from a single block of jade. Once you’ve enjoyed taking a tour of the magnificent palace, you will be taken back to your hotel.
