Welcome to Thailand! Well known as the City of Angels, Bangkok is the present capital city and the focal point for Thailand. It was made the capital of Thailand in 1782 by the first monarch of the present Chakri Dynasty. It is a vibrant city, a national treasure house and Thailand's spiritual, cultural, political, commercial, educational and diplomatic center, with endless choices for sightseeing and entertainment opportunities. In addition to the many temples and historic buildings such as The Grand Palace and Wat Arun, the list of interesting places to visit is endless. There are numerous canal (khlong) networks on the Chaophraya River, giving the city the name of 'Venice of the East'. Upon arrival, check in to your hotel.

DAY 2: BANGKOK  (BREAKFAST - LUNCH)

Grand Palace and Jim Thompson House

This morning, your sightseeing in Bangkok begins with a visit to the Grand Palace. It is an architectural wonder of golden stupas, walls and pillars encrusted in shining, colorful mosaics, and the previous residence of the Kings of Thailand (from the 18th to the mid-20th century). You will see palaces once used for different occasions, including the Reception Hall, the Coronation Hall, the Throne Hall, the Royal Guest House and Wat Phra Kaew. The architecture is predominantly Thai, though there are some European influences. The most famous building within the palace grounds is Wat Phra Kaew, as it is regarded the most sacred Buddhist temple in Thailand. The main temple building houses the Emerald Buddha, the most revered object in Thailand, carved from a single piece of jade. After lunch, tour Jim Thompson's house. This architectural gem is hidden away on a quiet street, in the center of the city. It was once the home of the man who took the production of Thai silk onto a higher level on the international stage. The building itself is one of the best examples of traditional Thai residential architecture, also housing a breathtaking collection of Southeast Asian art. An open air café is situated in the peaceful gardens with a shop selling Jim Thompson's silk and other household items.

DAY 3: BANGKOK  (BREAKFAST - LUNCH - DINNER)


Floating market and Nakorn Pathom

This morning, drive through the countryside of Bangkok and visit the world-famous floating market of Damnoen Saduak. Situated 110 km from Bangkok in Ratchaburi Province, this market is like a trip back in time to old Siam. You will see colorfully clad merchants paddle along canals in sturdy canoes which are laden with fresh fruit and vegetables to be sold on the canal banks. This buzzing market is at its best in the early morning, before the crowds arrive and the heat of the day builds up. Afterward, continue on to Phra Pathom Chedi in Nakorn Pathom, reportedly the largest pagoda in Southeast Asia. The golden-tiled dome of the Chedi towers almost 116 m into the air.

Perhaps, take an optional paddle boat ride (at extra cost).

The adventure starts with a short drive to Thong-Krut Bay, where we board a long-tailed boat for the 20-minute journey to this adjoining island situated off the southern tip of Samui. Lunch will be served at a beach restaurant with time set aside to "recharge the batteries." For those keen to do more than soak up the rays, the southern end of the beach has a fantastic snorkeling spot with an abundance of coral that is home to a plethora of colorful, tropical marine creatures. The west side of the island has a mangrove forest with a sturdy boardwalk, so visitors can see how the mangroves act as a haven for land and sea creatures, without damaging the sensitive eco-system. The island is traffic-free and without electricity, so there is total solitude. Although less than half-an-hour from Samui, Koh Taen is a world away from its bigger neighbor.
