Day 1: Arrive in Bangkok
Upon arrival in Bangkok you’ll be met by your guide and transported to your hotel in a private air conditioned vehicle. The evening is yours to explore, whether you head out into the city or relax in your hotel enjoying a quiet night in before a day of exploring tomorrow.
Day 2: Bangkok
After an early start you’ll head to Bangkok’s most famous temple, Wat Pho, for a half day tour. In the mornings the monks begin their ritual of chanting, an uplifting and private experience within the temple grounds before marvelling at the 45 metre long Reclining Buddha, with intricate mother of pearl feet and stunning golden skin.
Next you’ll explore the Grand Palace, where the majestic buildings are encrusted with golden tiles and ruby mosaics, with spiky roofs pointing into the sky. Here you’ll enter the holy sanctuary of the Emerald Buddha, the most revered Buddha image in the country, where many local people come every day to worship.
Grab a quick lunch of pad thai and spend the afternoon exploring the rest of the city, from shopping for Thai silk scarves at Jim Thompsons to the street markets of Sukhumvit. This evening, why not head into the city and enjoy a traditional Thai meal of garlic rice, som tam and the famous Thai green curry.
Day 3: Bangkok
Today is yours to explore the bustling metropolis of Bangkok. If it’s a weekend why not head to Chatuchak Weekend Market, where you can buy jewellery, furniture and food – and everything in between! Another option is to hop on a boat and enjoy the journey upriver through the city, stopping off to try dumplings in the alleys of Chinatown, enjoying the air conditioning of the enormous Central World shopping mall and lizard-spotting in the haven of green space that is Lumpini Park.
Later, why not head to Silom and hop between the busy bars and night market, where you can buy clothes and souvenirs, as well as taste the delicious street food from the stalls that line the pavements. Finish the night at rooftop bar where you can drink in the spectacular views of the city as well as one of the many cocktails on the menu.
Day 4: Depart Bangkok
This morning you’ll be met by a driver, ready to transfer you to the airport in an air conditioned private vehicle for your onwards flight.
