What we will do

DAY 1 * Once in Bangkok, our first day starts with a visit to two of its most famous temples. The first is the Temple of the Reclining Buddha , home to the third largest reclining Buddha statue in Thailand. * We then move on to the Emerald Buddha Temple, home to the most ancient Buddha statue, whose clothing is changed three times a year in conjunction with the Thai seasons during a solemn ceremony performed by the Monarch himself. * Inside the 1,900 metres of walls that surround the complex, we can also observe the Grand Palace, commissioned in 1782 when King Rama I decided to move the capital from Thonburi to Bangkok. * We start feeling peckish so a local restaurant welcomes us for a delicious lunch with international and Thai dishes. * We then move towards the nearby jetty, from where we set sail on a thrilling trip along the Chao Phraya river - a fascinating cruise that enables us to admire city life on both banks. * Once back on dry land, we have some free time to shop in a famous store. * We then head towards the Siam Niramit theatre where, while waiting for the evening show, we enjoy a delightful buffet dinner with international dishes. * A unique experience awaits us after dinner: a majestic show illustrating the history and traditions of Thailand filled with colours, surprising set designs, singing and dancing. * After the show, we go for a stroll through an evocative night-time market to immerse ourselves in the authentic local atmosphere and to do a bit of shopping. * We then reach one of the main hotels overlooking the river where we can rest. DAY 2 * An abundant breakfast awaits us when we wake up, providing the energy we need for another pleasant day spent discovering charming Bangkok. * We head towards Vimanmek Palace, the largest golden teak palace in the world. * Built without using one single nail in the second half of the 19th century, it is a truly sumptuous building yet surprisingly intimate and serene. It reflects the splendour as well as the Western influence prevailing at the time. * While visiting its countless rooms, we are fascinated by the grand architecture and by the numerous objects once owned by King Rama V. * After our visit, we bid farewell to the fabulous city of Bangkok and head back to the port on our coach.
