BANGKOK (Laem Chabang)

There are two Bangkoks, the ancient soul of Thailand with its long and fascinating history and the frantic, modern metropolis that embraces the latest trends both Eastern and Western. The two blend together remarkably well—even the most jarring juxtapositions of old and new somehow make sense. Bangkok is not only the biggest city in Thailand, but also the most mesmerizing, with some of the country's most beautiful temples and shrines. View more

The city's energy is palpable, especially at night, when traffic opens up a bit, its famous markets get going, and everything seems lit up—from its proudest monuments to its seediest streets. When Ayutthaya was besieged and pillaged by the Burmese in 1766, Thonburi became Thailand's capital. The Thais call Bangkok Krung Thep (City of Angels), and in 1782 King Rama I moved his capital here, just across the Chao Praya River. Laem Chabang is approximately 130 km (81 mi) from Bangkok.

Excursiones en 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 viist 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 Bhumibol lives today in the Chitlada 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 Supatra River House for lunch.


Arriving at the River City boat landing, board a private boat 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.


Please note: This tour requires an extensive amount of walking with many steps to climb. Guests must be able to manoeuvre in and out of the boat. This tour is not suitable for guests with limited mobility or those who utilise a wheelchair. A strict dress code is enforced for visitors to the Grand Palace and the Temple of the Emerald Buddha. No tank tops, leggings, shorts of any kind, skirts above the knee, sandals or flip-flops are allowed. Men must wear socks. Video and still cameras are only permitted on the palace grounds, not inside buildings. Shoes must be removed when entering the Chapel of the Emerald Buddha. This tour departs from the pier and ends at the pier in Laem Chabang. The drive to/from Laem Chabang and bangkok is approximately 2,5hours.

Ang Sila & Nong Mon Market

Experience some of the local lifestyles, traditions and holy sites of Thailand during this picturesque, half-day sightseeing excursion.


Laem Chabang, Ang Sila Fishing Village, Granite Carving Demonstration

Depart the pier for the scenic, approximately one-hour drive to for an hour to Ang Sila, a seaside fishing village known for its granite products. The fishermen here are not only skilled at fishing, but also making implements and crafts from granite, and have passed on their craftsmanship from generation-to-generation. Upon arrival, observe a carving demonstration to learn how their most renowned products, including pestles and mortars, are made.


Naja Chinese Shrine

Next, re-board your coach and continue on for a visit to the Naja Chinese Shrine, a beautiful attraction adorned with Chinese architecture. Here, local residence and visitors come to honour the Chinese Gods, especially the celestial God named Naja.


Nong Mon Market

Following your visit, re-board your coach and head to the Nong Mon Market, a local market with more than 100 stalls selling dried seafood, desserts, fruit and preserved foods. Popular local delicacies include khao lam (sweet sticky rice in bamboo) and khanom chak (sweet coconut wrapped in palm leaf). Following some free time to stroll about the market, re-board your coach and commence the approximately one-hour drive back to the pier.


Please note: This tour involves a moderate amount of walking for approximately 0.5 miles (about 0.8 kilometres), at times over uneven surfaces, with a few steps to negotiate to get on/off the coach and 50 steps at the Naja Chinese Shrine. Walking at the Nong Mon Market is at the discretion of each guest. This tour is not suitable for guests with limited mobility and guests who utilise a wheelchair. Lightweight, comfortable clothing with flat, closed-toe walking shoes and sun protection are recommended. Proper attire is required to enter the temple; shorts and bare shoulders are not permitted. Shoes must be removed when entering religious sites; bring an extra pair of heavy socks for comfort, as the pavement may be hot. Disposable sanitary masks are provided whilst observing villagers produce granite products. Guests must be at least four years old to participate on this tour. The tour sequence may vary.

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).


Wat Na Phra Meru

Another good example of typical Ayutthaya-style temple, it was not destroyed by the Burmese. Constructed during the late 14th- and early 15th-centuries, the name suggests it was a royal cremation site. Of special note are the Buddha images - one fully decorated in regal attire and the other of black stone.


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


Please note: This tour requires an extensive amount of walking, for approximately 1 mile (1.6 km), with about 50 steps to climb. It is not suitable for guests with limited mobility or those who utilise a wheelchair. Anticipate hot and humid weather. Wear comfortable shoes and light-weight clothing; however, shorts and sleeveless shirts are not permitted and guests must dress modestly. Shoes must be removed to enter the buildings visited. We suggest you wear slip-on shoes and bring a pair of socks for comfort. Order of sites may vary and traffic can affect the tour duration. The drive between the Laem Chabang pier and Ayutthaya is approximately 2.5-3 hours in each direction.

Tropical Garden & Cultural Show

Explore the award-winning manicured gardens, and take in Thai cultural and traditional performances, during this relaxing, half-day sightseeing excursion to the famous Nong Nooch Tropical Garden.


Laem Chabang, Nong Nooch Tropical Garden, Abundant Plant and Flower Gardens

Depart the pier for the scenic, approximately one-hour drive to the Nong Nooch Tropical Garden, the largest botanical garden in Southeast Asia. The vast gardens are set amidst approximately 600 acres (about 243 hectares) that originally was utilised as a plantation to grow local fruits.

They have won multiple awards at London's world-famous Chelsea Flower Show.


Thai Cultural and Traditional Performances, Elephant Show

In addition to the abundant flowers and plants, see a varied program of beautiful, contemporary Thai cultural and traditional performances. Included are sword-fighting, Muay Thai boxing, a Thai wedding ceremony, traditional Thai dance, and a captivating elephant show demonstrating their unexpected talents, including sports and dancing in the field.

Depart the pier for the scenic, approximately one-hour drive to Wat Yannasangwararam, a temple under H.M. the King Rama IX's patronage. Set in a huge area spanning approximately 145 acres (about 58.6 hectares), the complex houses several buildings of diverse architectural styles, along with well-tended gardens and a large lake that make the complex a peaceful, relaxing and inviting setting. The temple is renowned for its modern design, and built in a very different style than most Thai temples. A pavilion called 'mondop', or 'mandapa', contains a replica of a footprint of the Buddha. Inside a large white chedi (Buddhist stupa), a number of relics from the Buddha and his followers are kept.


Khao Chi Chan, Giant Lord Buddha Image, Marble Mountains

Next, re-board your coach and continue on to the nearby Khao Chi Chan. This famous landmark features a giant sculptural image of Lord Buddha erected on a giant cliff. It was built 1995 as an initiative by the Supreme Patriarch, who felt it was a shame to let these marble mountains be destroyed. Consequently, he ordered the giant Buddha image be created on the cliff that was already cut in half. It was also built to honour H.M. the King Rama IX, on the occasion of his Golden Jubilee. At the conclusion of your visit, re-board your coach and commence the approximately one-hour drive back to the pier.

Mid-Voyage Land Adventure: Angkor Wat!

Once the capital of the Khmer Empire from 800 AD to approximately 1200, Angkor spreads out over an area of about 40 miles (63 km). The city and its famous temples were abandoned in the early 15th century and remained unknown to the outside world until 1860, when a French botanist stumbled upon them in the jungle overgrowth. Today, travellers flock to Angkor to see this spectacular temple city, rated among the world's premier architectural sites and since 1992 on the UNESCO World Heritage List.

Following Immigration formalities, a transfer coach will take you to the Sokha Angkor Resort Hotel in downtown Siem Reap. Following check-in, gather in the hotel's restaurant for dinner.


Overnight accommodation at the Sokha Angkor Hotel - Siem Reap.


DAY TWO - Siem Reap

Following breakfast at the hotel, begin your exploration of Angkor Thom, the former capital of the Khmer Empire. King Jayavarman VII established Angkor Thom in the late-12th century. It spans 3.5 square miles (90.65 square km), and features 25-foot-high (7.6-metres-high) gates at each of the cardinal points.


Leaving the hotel, drive to Angkor Wat, the most famous of the Angkor sites and the largest Buddhist monument ever built. It spans an area of 500 acres (202 hectares), and is surrounded by a 660-foot-wide (201-meter-wide) moat. The construction required some 385,000 workers and 40,000 elephants over a 35-year period. The site remained covered by dense jungle growth until the late-19th century, when French archaeologists began a long restoration process. While some sections are still in ruins, others are used for worship and are occupied by Buddhist monks.


Entrance to this majestic and vast complex is via a long causeway across the moat. Then begin your exploration with a guided walking tour through corridors and courtyards. The walls are covered with bas-reliefs featuring battle scenes, dancing deities and visions of punishment in hell and rewards in paradise. The temple's central building is three stories high and accessible via a steep staircase (only recommended for very fit and agile guests).


After an extensive visit of approximately two hours, drive to the Angkor National Museum. Through interactive exhibits you will be able to gain a deeper understanding of tradition and different beliefs of the ancient empire. Statues, remnants from the great temples themselves as well as artifacts depict all manner of social customs throughout the evolution of the unique Khmer civilization. (Please note that photography is prohibited in some sections of the museum.)


Depart the museum and head to a local hotel for a buffet-style lunch.


At the end of your visit, proceed to Ta Phrom. The temple is reached via a footpath through the forest and your first glimpse is of an extraordinary sight. The invading jungle-like growth has been left in place. Serpentine trunks of towering fig trees wind around the temple ruins, across walls and through doorways, creating an incredible atmosphere. Ta Phrom is also featured in scenes of Angelina Jolie's movie, Tomb Raider.


You will be transferred to Wat Thmei an active monastery where you can understand more about Cambodia's tragic history since this now relatively built up area of town was formerly a site of killing fields in Siem Reap you will find a small memorial stupa which contains the skulls and bones of victims killed during the regime of the Khmer Rouge during 1975 - 1979.

Mid-Voyage Adventure: The Dragon Kingdom - Bhutan

Venture into one of the most isolated countries in the world, aptly referred to as the 'Last Shangri-La', and discover the extraordinary Dragon Kingdom of Bhutan at the 'Roof of the World'. Bhutan is truly an unspoiled preserve with a cultural heritage that has largely remained intact due to its isolation from the rest of the world until the early 1960s. Stay in Thimphu, the capital of the tiny Himalayan kingdom, with a two-night stay at the luxurious Amankora Resort. The climb to the Tiger's Nest completes your adventure.

IMPORTANT: Silversea will contact you 4-6 weeks prior to departing to Bhutan to complete the necessary paperwork for the group visa required for your participation.


Located in the Himalayas between China and India, visitors find not only stunning natural scenery but also unique architecture that, by law, must conform to traditional design. Historically and culturally the mountain kingdom is linked with Tibet, but politically and economically the country today is drawn much closer to India. The nation is a bastion of Vajrayana Buddhism, which influences all aspects of life in the kingdom.


Bhutan has been a monarchy since 1907, and in April of 2007, King Jigme Singye Wangchuk abdicated in favour of his son, Jigme Khesa Namgyal Wangchuck. This Mid-Voyage Land Adventure focuses on two areas:


THIMPHU

The capital town of Bhutan and the centre of government, religion and commerce, Thimphu is a unique city with unusual mixture of modern development alongside ancient traditions. Although not what one expects from a capital city, Thimphu is still a fitting and lively place. Home to civil servants, expatriates and many monks, Thimphu maintains a strong national character in its architectural style.


PARO

The beautiful valley of Paro encapsulates a rich culture, scenic beauty and hundreds of myths and legends. It is home to many of Bhutan's oldest temples and monasteries, the National Museum and the country's only airport. Mount Chomolhari (7,314m) reigns in white glory at the northern end of the valley and its glacial waters plunge through deep gorges to form Pa Chhu (Paro river). Paro is also one of the most fertile valleys in the Kingdom producing the bulk of the locally famous red rice from its terraced fields.


Tourism in this landlocked country is still relatively slow and regulated by the government in an effort to sustain the current culture and traditions. There are some rules that need to be remembered: When visiting temples, hats and shoes must be removed; modest dress is required for visits to sacred sites, and smoking in public is a fineable offence. The outlined programme may require adjustments due to local conditions beyond Silversea's control. We invite you to join us on this adventure!


DAY ONE - Bangkok / Paro / Thimphu

A very early start (approximately 4:00AM) is necessary to begin your fascinating trip to The Dragon Kingdom, Bhutan. Your guide awaits pierside to transfer you to Bangkok's airport for your Druk Air flight to Paro, Bhutan's only international airport. The total travel time is approximately 3 hours.The flight to Paro in itself will be a thrilling experience as it passes over the green wall of hills known as the gateways into Bhutan and then gradually ascends into the Himalayas.


Upon arrival at Paro airport, proceed through the necessary final visa formalities where your visa stamp is issued. All foreign nationals require a visa for Bhutan and Silversea will apply for this visa several weeks before your departure. Once completed, you are met by your Amankora guide and begin the 1.5 hour scenic drive to Thimphu, the capital of the tiny Himalayan kingdom. Check-in and enjoy lunch at the luxury Amankora Resort.


This afternoon there are plenty of opportunities to immerse yourself in the rich culture this kingdom has to offer. Your first stop is the Chorten Memorial; a beautiful stupa built in the memory of Bhutans third King "The father of Bhutan" which serves both as a memorial to the late king and a monument to peace.


From here, move on to the Folk Heritage and National Textile Museums. Both of these museums opened in 2001 and provide a fascinating insight into Bhutanese material culture and way of life. Though the country has modernized in recent decades, most citizens continue to rely upon the traditional medicines of their ancestors. You will visit the Institute of Traditional Medicines where today's practitioners are trained to uphold this rich tradition.


Return to the hotel for dinner and overnight accommodations - Amankora Resort, Thimphu

DAY TWO - Thimphu / Paro

Following breakfast, check-out of the hotel and start the day with a visit of Trashichhodong, an impressive fortress/monastery which houses the Secretariat building, the throne room of His Majesty, the King and various government offices.


Then, depart Thimpu and start your travel to Paro. Along the way stop for a visit of the Pangri Zampa, a monastic training school for astrologers. If time permits, make another stop at Tachugang and take a short walk to the riverside bridge to see the prayer flags. Check-in at the Amankora Resort and enjoy lunch.


This afternoon, try your hand at Bhutan's national sport, archery. Each village has its own archery range and high spirited competitions are regularly held. Dinner is served this evening at the hotel followed by a traditional cultural performance.


Overnight accommodations - Amankora Resort, Paru



DAY THREE - Paro

This morning will begin with a hike up to view one of Bhutan's most revered monuments, the Taktshang Goemba, more commonly referred to as the 'Tiger's Nest'. Please ensure you have a hearty breakfast.


The Monastery is built on a 3,000-foot (914-metre) cliff and is the country's most famous and sacred site. The monastery clings to a huge granite cliff and was devastated in a fire in 1998. The government took immediate steps to restore the complex to its original structure. The climb to the viewpoint will take you past small settlements and through pine forests. The four to five hour return trek offers spectacular views of this sacred monastery and its surrounds, high above the valley floor. (Horses or mules will be provided to take guests up to the viewpoint and thereafter guests need to walk to the monastery, another 45-60 minute walk up and down steps.)


Return to the hotel for lunch. Time permitting, your afternoon in Paro will include a visit to the Kyichu Lahkhang, one of the oldest and most sacred shrines in Bhutan or time for browsing among the shops in town. If you prefer, just enjoy the ambience that only the Amankora can offer. Dinner will be served at the hotel.


Overnight accommodation is at the hotel, the Amankora Resort - Paro



DAY FOUR - Paro / Bangkok / Ho Chi Minh

This morning you bid farewell to Bhutan. Your driver takes you to the Paro International Airport for your flight to Bangkok. The total travel time is approximately 3,50 hours to Bangkok. Upon arrival at Bangkok Airport, you will be met at the arrival gate by our airport representative who will assist you to pass the formalities then check in for flight to Ho Chi Minh. The flight from Bangkok to Ho Chi Minh is approx. 1 hr and 45 minutes. Upon arrival in Ho Chi Minh in the evening, you will be transferred to the ship



Please note: This Mid-Voyage Land Adventure requires an extensive amount of walking and climbing of many steps at most sites. The hike to the Tiger's Nest is about 5 hours in total and is taken at a slow pace. Altitude sickness may be a problem for guests suffering from palpitations, shortness of breath or severe headaches. This programme is not suitable for guests with limited mobility or those who utilise a wheelchair. Comfortable shoes and dressing in layers is recommended. Due to a wide range of temperature (approx. 27-29c during the day/18c at night / 80-84F days, 65F nights) and climate conditions, it is recommended to bring appropriate clothing for protection against the changing conditions. Shorts, hats, sleeveless blouses are not permitted to wear in the monasteries. Dress code throughout the trip is modest casual with sturdy walking shoes. It is recommended to leave jewellery and valuables on board. The order of the itinerary may be amended due to flight schedule changes or other unforeseen factors. In case of flight changes, the tour sequence may be reversed or amended. Remember to bring your camera. There are baggage restrictions as follows: hand baggage gross weight is limited to 5 kg (11 lb.) and size is limited to 23*36*56 cm. One checked bag must be less than 20 kg (44 pounds). Guests must be aware that Bhutan's infrastructure is still very limited and touring in the country requires some 'roughing it'. As travel within the Kingdom needs to be flexible, your understanding and a sense of adventure is necessary.

Every morning until late in the evening, this bustling market springs to life, selling a variety of fresh fruits, vegetables, meat, seafood, snacks, and clothes and accessories. However, what makes this market so unique and exciting is the fact that a train runs through it eight times a day, seven days a week.

Upon arrival, embark a boat for a fascinating ride that offers an interesting glimpse into the local daily life, orchards, traditional teak houses, floating water hyacinths, local people living and working by the river, and more.
