After breakfast we begin an unforgettable day trip to the main historical highlights of Bangkok.

Visit Wat Arun, also known as the Temple of Dawn, the Buddhist complex built in the 17th century, one of the country’s most important historical landmarks for its impressive central Prang encrusted with colourful porcelain.

Afterwards, we cross the Chao Phraya River by ferry and proceed to Wat Pho, also known as the Temple of the Reclining Buddha, the religious complex housing Thailand’s largest collection of Buddha images, including the 46-metre-long Reclining Buddha statue. It is considered the earliest centre for public education and houses the School of Thai Medicine and the School of Traditional Thai Massage.

Our tour continues with the visit to the Grand Palace, the building complex at the heart of the capital, official residence of the monarchs of the Kingdom of Siam since 1782, followed by the Wat Phra Kaew, also known as the Temple of the Emerald Buddha. Built in 1783 within the perimeter of the Grand Palace, it is considered the most sacred Buddhist temple in the country. 

We then proceed to the Chinatown district, one of the liveliest and most colourful areas of the capital. Visit Wat Traimit, or the Temple of the Golden Buddha, which houses the largest solid gold statue in the world weighing 5.5 tonnes and 3 metres high.

03. DAMNOEN SADUAK AND RAILWAY MARKET

Maeklong Railway MarketMaeklong Railway Market

Early morning transfer to Damnoen Saduak, 90 km from Bangkok in Ratchanaburi province.

Upon arrival we embark on a traditional boat to explore the artificial canal built over 150 years ago and its remarkable floating market, where vendors on small wooden boats sell a variety of local products such as Thai snacks, vegetables, colourful fruits, desserts and handicraft items.

Over the years, the floating market has become a popular tourist attraction. Nonetheless, it is such a characteristic slice of day-to-day life that it is worth a visit.

Afterwards we go to the coconut sugar farm, specialised in processing coconut and its derivatives, to watch the production process and taste some exquisite products.

Next, we visit the Maeklong Railway Market, also known as the Umbrella Pull-down Market, the most picturesque and authentic Thai market built in 1905 literally on railway tracks still in use today. At the time, the local authorities decided to build this railway line to transport goods quickly. Today, eight times a day, when traders hear the approaching train, they remove goods and parasols from the rails with astonishing rapidity to enable the train to pass. Right after that, they reset everything and carry on selling until the next train ride.
