DAY 2 | Bangkok

Following breakfast at your hotel, you will head to a private half-day tour of Bangkok city and temples.

This tour includes three of the most unusual Buddhist temples in Bangkok: Wat Trimitr with its invaluable Golden Buddha (5 ½ tons of solid gold); Wat Pho, the most extensive temple in Bangkok, with its colossal Reclining Buddha; and the Chedis of the Kings. In addition, you will visit the Grand Palace which is one of the most beautiful samples of an ancient Siamese court. It used to be the residence of the Kings of Thailand. Here you will see palaces which were used for different occasions: the Funeral Palace, the Reception Palace, the Throne Hall, the Coronation Hall, the Royal Guest House, and the beautiful Emerald Buddha Temple. Afterward, you will return to your hotel and spend the rest of the day at leisure.

DAY 3 | Bangkok

After breakfast at the hotel, your private guide will pick you up for a half-day excursion to visit two of Bangkok’s top cultural attractions—the Damneon Saduak Floating Market and the Maeklong Railway Market.

Damnoen Saduak is the most popular floating market and located around 110 kilometers west of Bangkok. A trip to this Thai phenomenon is like traveling back to the ancient times of the Siam Kingdom, where colorfully clad merchants paddle along the narrow canals. The Floating Market is an ideal place for tourists to see the old style and traditional way of selling and buying fruits, vegetables and other from small boats. Tourists will also be able to see traditional Thai houses and the way locals use boats in their everyday lives. During your visit, there will be lots of activity and bargaining is part of the fun of the sale. The market’s popularity among visitors has grown over the years and outside the traditional means of selling and trading food and drinks, souvenir shops around the market are home to some of the best local handicraft one can buy. The tour includes a visit to the rural Maeklong Railway Market or Talad Rom Hoop (closing umbrella market).

Return to your hotel and enjoy the rest of the day at leisure.

Breakfast at the hotel. Enjoy the day at leisure to explore the city on your own.

Optional Tour: Go beyond tourist zones for the most enjoyable midnight eating adventure. After the moon comes up, cruise along Bangkok streets via this city’s iconic 3-wheel, Tuk Tuk, to visit Bangkokian’s favorite places to eat. Taste a variety of savory menus, including the local favorite Northeastern Thai Food (Esan Food), the town’s Best Pad Thai, and the popular home-style Thai snack. Between the bites, visit old-town landmarks and temples for a different perspective compared to the busy day time scene. Discover the side of Bangkok wholly unknown to visitors. We will finish the tour by the Cinderella’s time.

Optional Tour: A morning with the elephants is an eye-opening and inspiring experience. Following a scenic drive along a local village, you will arrive at Phuket Elephant Sanctuary, a picturesque jungle dotted with ponds, wide open fields and hillsides for the elephants to roam around. Your visit starts at our Tree Top Reception and Observation Platform, where we will watch an educational video to prepare you for your encounter with the elephants and to help you understand why they need to be protected. Next up, you will feed the elephants. While they enjoy their baskets of bananas, pineapples, and cucumbers, you have a chance to learn from our guides about the background of each elephant. Once the elephants are fed we walk with them down into the jungle. By keeping a safe distance and watching them from our Observation Salas, the elephants have the freedom to express their natural behavior, from bathing and playing in our pond to socializing with each other. The sanctuary does not offer rides, shows, bathing, trunk hugging, elephant kisses, sitting on or lying on the elephants, loud noisy groups, or people crowding around the elephants.
