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. 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. View more

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.

A Day In Bangkok with Airport Transfer

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 drive to the international airport.
