Fly into Bangkok where your driver will meet you at the airport and take you to your hotel.
Bangkok is a culturally rich and vibrant city, with numerous creative communities combining ancient traditions with modern artistic styles.
This half-day cultural tour starts in the early afternoon with a private long-tail boat ride along Bangkok’s ancient canals, which are lined by shophouses, temples and residences designed in a range of architectural styles. This diversity demonstrates the rich heritage of these former trading routes.
The boat emerges at Baan Silapin, a 100-year-old house that has been renovated and transformed into an art gallery. Here, guests can take part in an art workshop or explore the local community, before moving on to the Joe Louis School of Puppetry – a unique show that features colourful and intricately-designed Thai puppets.
The day ends at the beautiful riverside landmark of Wat Arun, the ‘Temple of Dawn’, which features a 79-metre-high pagoda.
Overnight in Bangkok.
Free day at leisure.
In the early evening, transfer to the Golden Mount to have a top view of the old city and cycle down to Bangkok’s main attractions. Cycling pass the Giant Swing, Wat Suthat and flower market area.
Before sunset, arrive at a peaceful park by the Chao Phraya River to watch as the sun goes down over the Temple of Dawn, with the golden spires of the Grand Palace illuminated behind. Continue cycling to the biggest amulet market at its closing time, and see more buildings that are in both Thai and European styles, including the iconic Wat Benchamabophit which is the temple of the “Five-Baht” coins. Impress with the shimmering of Wat Ratchanada and Loha Prasat before drop-off for dinner and relax at the Sidewalk Cafe with illuminated lights of Democracy Monument and Ratchadamnoen Avenue.
