A visit to the Royal Grand Palace, the nation’s landmark and most praised royal monument in Thailand, with the enclosed and dazzling Wat Phra Kaew is a must. Wat Phra Kaew also called the Temple of the Emerald Buddha, is well known for its Golden Chedi, its Pantheon of the Chakri Kings, and its Eight-Colored Tower. In Thailand, it is considered by many to be a living example of a classical Siamese Court, being the former residence of the kings of Thailand. Wat Pho is regarded as the first center of public education and is sometimes called ‘Thailand’s first university’. Mural paintings, inscriptions, and statues found in the temple educated people on various subjects such as literature, warfare, archaeology, astronomy, geology, and meditation, and is home to Thai traditional massages. Here, experiences an afternoon trip along the bustling Chao Phraya River and the quiet Klong (canals) in a long-tail boat, in which you can enjoy scenes of Bangkok life. We will bring you to a more traditional and serene way of living around Thonburi residential areas, away from all the skyscrapers and modern buildings of Bangkok City Centre. We will also stop by the “Temple of Dawn” (officially named Wat Arun). Finally, a visit to the Flower and Vegetable market will round off this day.

This busy full-day tour will take you first to the rural yet world-famous floating market of Damnoen Saduak, situated about 100 kilometers west of Bangkok. It is generally known as Klong Ton Khem Floating Market or Damnoen Saduak Floating Market. Damnoen Saduak has officially three floating markets. A narrow canal flanked with food stalls and souvenir shops from the principal market at Ton Kem. Farther south is the rarely visited markets of Her Kui and Khun Pitak. Photographers at Ton Kem will get their best shots from the bridge which crosses over the canal and from the shed on the right. Nowadays, the market is bustling with activity from very early in the morning until about 11.00 am. Return to the hotel.
Visit the former capital of Thailand, Ayutthaya, situated approximately 75 kilometers north of Bangkok and which is one of those destinations you must see. The mix of cultures in Ayutthaya began in the mid-16th century when ships from Ayutthaya plied the Asian seas, trading with neighboring countries. When the Dutch showed up in the 17th century, Ayutthaya became a port city, and trade routes were extended to China, Japan, Indonesia, Portugal, Holland, and France, and even up to the Scandinavian countries later. Although the ancient villages of foreign traders lining the Chao Phraya riverbanks were abandoned when the city was sacked by Burmese troops in 1767, some remnants have survived and now showcase the city’s past glory. The tour will start at the Summer Palace of the late King Rama V, commonly known as “Bang Pa-In”. You will then continue to the magnificent ruins of early splendor that Ayutthaya is famous for all over the world. We will pass or visit all the most impressive ruins of this World Heritage Site. Lunch will be served at a local restaurant in Ayutthaya. We will eventually return to Bangkok.
