What we will do
- 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.
- An abundant breakfast awaits us when we wake up, providing the energy we need for another pleasant day spent discovering charming Bangkok.
- After our visit, we bid farewell to the fabulous city of Bangkok and head back to the port on our coach.
