DAY 2

    BANGKOK

Today you’ll get to see a truly unique side of Bangkok. An opportunity to visit and explore both well-known sights and hidden spots. After breakfast, your guide will pick you up and head to the fabulous Grand Palace. Expect to spend the full morning strolling around and admiring this Asian Wonderland of exquisite craftsmanship and spectacular architecture around the immense palace grounds. Within the palace grounds, there is also Wat Phra Kaew, the most sacred Buddhist temple in Thailand, considered to be the spiritual centre of the nation.

Following the Palace, you’ll visit Wat Po temple, the home of the famous Golden Reclining Buddha and the birthplace of traditional Thai massage. Next, a walk down to the Chao Phraya River, to board a longtail boat for a relaxing journey down the River of Kings! Bangkok is known as the “Venice of the East’’ because of its elaborate network of canals and communities. Invisible from the roads, this side of the city can only be discovered by boat, swooping through its maze of canals. A world away from the busy Bangkok vibe, the canal boat ride is a truly unique Bangkok experience.

Continue the tour with the Talat Pak Khlong, the largest flower and vegetable market in Bangkok. From this famous market, you could continue to explore further the city or your guide will be happy to give you directions back to the hotel.

Today is an opportunity to get away from the relentless city noise and crowds, to escape to a paradise of lush tropical vegetation and a slower pace of life. You’ll get to experience the oasis of Bang Kra Jao, best reached by boat and explored by bicycle. Cycle through minor roads and elevated pathways, through temple gardens and tropical jungle with no hills, passing by traditional villages and local communities with smiling faces. The total ride is about 25 km starting with a short section in the city before crossing the river.

If it weren’t for the city skyline, you would never believe you’re still within Bangkok city limits! In fact, this island is referred to as the “green lung” of Bangkok for its natural beauty. During the tour, a stop for lunch will be made at the Tree House restaurant, famous for their Green Architecture and unmatched commitment to the environment. Enjoy the local organic food and learn about their design concept, upcycling, green energy and water initiatives.
