Embark aboard the Chao Phraya Express Boat for a 20 minutes trip along the Chao Phraya to sightsee and get fascinated with humble Thai way of life along the riverbanks. Adding to the attractions are magnificent architectures standing elegant just before the river. For instance, the Temple of Dawn, The Grand Palace, the Suspension Rama VIII bridge, and a String of World-class Waterfront Hotels.
Visit Wat Pho (Temple of the Reclining Buddha), founded in the 16th century, the oldest and biggest temple with the largest number of pagodas (95 in all) in the city. Wat Pho was the first open university of Thailand which offered courses in several branches of knowledge like literature, astrology, medicine and massage. It’s well known for its huge Reclining Buddha, 46 m. long and 15 m. high.
Visit Wat Phra Kaeo, the most beautiful and important Buddhist temple in Thailand. It is so richly and intricately decorated that, once entering the temple, you will feel as if you are in a real ’city of angels’.
Visit The Grand Palace, an area of 218,400 sq. metres and is surrounded by walls built in 1782. The length of the four walls is 1,900 metres. Within these walls are situated government offices and the Chapel Royal of the Emerald Buddha besides the royal residences.
Lunch at local restaurant.
Take a Tuk Tuk across the royal fields of Sanam Luang and eventually push up to the backpacker’s mecca of Khao San Road. Although the street is not very long, it is extremely interesting for visitors from all over the world examining the market stalls, looking for accommodation, good eats, and cyber cafes. In the evenings, the street is filled with loud music. It is a good-humoured friendly place and well worth visiting.
Back to the Rachadamnoen Avenue by Local Bus to the historical Klong (Canal) Saen Saeb.
Board the klong 'bus-boat' on Klong Saen Sap and cross the city to the west.
Visit Jim Thompson’s House Museum. This exquisite collection of traditional Thai houses stands as a museum to Jim Thompson, the man who revived the Thai silk industry and founded the Jim Thompson Thai Silk Company. Jim Thompson’s eclectic collection of antiques and artifacts is on permanent exhibition, making this a magnificent tribute to a well-respected and sorely missed legendary figure.
After the visit, the opportunity is given for shopping in one of the 5 huge shopping complex of the area (MBK, Siam Square, Siam Center, Siam Discovery, Siam Paragon), or simply. Transfer back to your hotel.
