Silversea Luxury Cruises To BANGKOK (Laem Chabang)

BANGKOK (Laem Chabang)
BANGKOK (Laem Chabang)
BANGKOK (Laem Chabang)

A voyage of flavour, and an all-out sensory assault, Bangkok is one of the world's most fascinating cities, and a place to plunge right in at the deep end. Immense tradition and relentless modernity combines, and it's these contrasts and collisions that make Bangkok the remarkable, all-encompassing experience it is. One second you can be dodging whizzing hordes of mopeds, the next, absorbed into the blissful tranquillity of a silent temple courtyard. View more

Ornate towers and places of worship blend in alongside cathedral-like shopping malls and skyscrapers, while the streets hum with bartering from the markets that spill out wherever you walk. Part of Bangkok's allure is that Iife is well and truly played out on its streets. Stalls of flowers, spices and silk fabrics fill bustling alleyways with colour and exotic fragrances. You can find fine dining hidden away here - including Michellin-starred restaurants - but the real Bangkok is the feast of flavours on street level - where authentic Pad Thai is cooked up alongside spicy papaya salad. To truly know Bangkok you must sail the waters of the Chao Phraya river, which provides a cooling thoroughfare through the city. You'll sail through Bangkok's soul, with glorious temples leaning up against the river's banks, filled with intricately decorated Buddha statues. One of the country's most sacred sites - the Temple of the Emerald Buddha - rises in a river bend, while the beautiful Grand Palace, and the skyscraper-like tower of the colourful Wat Arun temple, also watch out over the water. It's hard to leave the intoxicating fizz of the city behind, but the journey north to Ayutthaya is an incredible voyage, where you can see the extraordinary ruins of the former capital Kingdom of Siam, which was destroyed in 1350.

Excursions in BANGKOK (Laem Chabang)

A Day in Bangkok

After an early breakfast, depart the ship for the 2,5-hour journey to Bangkok. Upon arrival, enjoy a sightseeing drive of the city followed by a visit of Bangkok's most splendid attraction, the Grand Palace, the Temple of the Emerald Buddha and a river cruise to Wat Arun.


Grand Palace

During this 90-minute visit, listen and look in awe as the guide points out the major highlights.

Although King Vajiiralongkorn lives today in the Dusit Palace in the northern part of the city, the Grand Palace is still used for certain ceremonial occasions. The grounds encompass over 100 buildings, representing 200 years of history and architectural experimentation. Most of the architecture, royal or sacred, can be classified as old Bangkok style - all of it simply overwhelming. The wat (temple) structures are colourful, comprising gilded stupas, polished orange and green tiled roofs, mosaic-encrusted pillars and rich marble pediments. Fabulous murals line the walls of the palace complex and glittering temple spires provide endless photo opportunities.


Temple of the Emerald Buddha

Also known as Wat Phra Kaew, this temple adjoins the Grand Palace on common ground. It was consecrated in 1782 and houses the most important image, the 23-inch (58-cm) high Emerald Buddha. The jade statue, enshrined in a glass case standing above the worshippers, is clothed with a different robe for each of the three seasons - hot, rainy and cool. The mystical figure and its legendary spiritual power draw pilgrims from all over.


Returning, head to Sala Rim Naam Restaurant of the Mandarin Oriental Hotel for Thai buffet lunch (the Mandarin Hotel itself is located on the opposite side of the river).


Board a private boat at the restaurant's pier for a cruise on the Chao Phraya River and through some of the canals. Watch the fascinating activities along the busy waterway. Stop along the way at the following locations (Take caution getting in and out of the boat.):


Wat Arun

At the 'Temple of Dawn', Wat Arun, the boat pauses to allow you a closer look at this magnificent temple, which is among Bangkok's most recognised landmarks. While the temple is best seen from the river, its curious decorations and statues of mythical figures are well worth a visit.


Royal Barge Museum

Leaving Wat Arun, resume your cruise through the klongs (canals) and head toward the Dockyard, home to the ceremonial royal barges. Once a year, the king would proceed down the river to Wat Arun in a flotilla of royal barges. Today, these elaborately decorated boats are preserved in this specially constructed museum and are a rare treat to visit.


Following your cruise, re-join the coach and start the journey back to Laem Chabang.

Ayuttaya - A World Heritage Site

This full-day excursion offers a visit to one of Thailand's most majestic historical sites, included on UNESCO's World Heritage list since 1991. Begin your outing with a 2.5-3 hours drive north to Ayutthaya, considered one of Thailand's major attractions. Then, enjoy visiting the following highlights:


Bang Pa-In Summer Palace

En route to Ayutthaya wall, make a visit at the Bang Pa-In Summer Palace. The palace comprises a collection of buildings of various ages and various architectural styles surrounded by a lake. Built in the 17th century and left unoccupied when Bangkok became the capital, the palace gained importance again in 1851 when King Mongkut restored it and resumed residence there. Enjoy a visit and marvel at the richly decorated turn-of-the-century European aristocratic style, interspersed with whimsical Thai touches.


Ayutthaya Historical Park

Continue drive to the ruined city of Ayutthaya was once the ancient capital of Siam for four centuries and in its heyday was said to be more beautiful than either London or Paris. Located on a 2.5-mile (four kilometre) island at the confluence of three rivers, Ayutthaya was once encircled by a seven-mile (11-kilometre) wall. After the destruction of the city by the Burmese in 1767, a new dynasty was established and the capital was moved to Thonburi. Today, much of the ancient fabled city is contained within a Historical Park, where archaeological studies are still carried out.


While many of the buildings are in ruins, those drawn to relics of the past still find a visit to the remaining temple compounds and numerous structures awe-inspiring and a memorable experience. Begin the historical park tour with a noteworthy visit at the spectacular Wat Chai Wattanram, reminiscent of Angkor Wat in Cambodia.


Take a break from sightseeing and enjoy lunch at the Krungsri River Hotel (or similar).


Afterwards, visit Wat Maha That, the major original construction was the high pagoda which was destroyed by Burmese invaders. Then visit Wat Phra Si Sanphet, the most important temple within the Royal Grand Palace compound, the equivalent of the Emerald Buddha Temple in Bangkok's Royal Grand Palace.

Following your visit, re-join your coach for the trip back to Laem Chabang and the ship.

Ayutthaya and Bangkok overnight

Thailand offers a wealth of opportunities to explore its ancient past during visits to Bangkok and Ayutthaya. At the Ayutthaya Historical Park, an UNESCO World Heritage Site, see the archaeological ruins of palaces, Buddhist temples, monasteries and statues. In Bangkok, experience a traditional Thai dinner and dance performance, visit the spectacular Grand Palace and Temple of the Emerald Buddha, and take a private boat-cruise along the Chao Phraya River and peaceful canals. Following a scenic drive to Ayutthaya, explore this mid-14th-century city during visits to three temple ruins. Included are the Wat Maha That Temple, Wat Chaiwatthanaram and Wat Phra Si Sanphet, the most important temple in the Royal Grand Palace compound, Afterward, transfer to Bangkok and proceed to the Peninsula Bangkok Hotel for check-in. This evening, embark a boat and ride to the Sala Rim Naam restaurant for a traditional Thai dinner accompanied by a classical Thai dance performance.
