    Bangkok city, temples and The Grand Palace

    Old City

    Bangkok has hundreds of temples, but this particular tour is a must-do because it introduces you to Wat Pho, home of the Reclining Buddha, and Wat Phra Kaew, otherwise known as The Temple of the Emerald Buddha, a spiritual icon carved from jade that towers above all others in its holiness.

    Damnoen Saduak floating market

    Damnoen Saduak, Ratchaburi

    The pioneer of all floating markets, Damnoen Saduak continues to offer a delightful experience despite its increasingly touristy atmosphere. Imagine small thin canals teeming with longboats piled high with fresh produce, each jockeying for position, and paddled by a lady ready to stop and bargain at a moment’s notice. This visual vibrancy, as well as its popularity, ensures Damnoen Saduak's iconic status. This tour takes up to 6 hours.


    Apsara Dinner Cruise by Banyan Tree


    Seeing the amazing temples of Bangkok at night while you drift along the Chao Phraya River is not to be missed. Run by Banyan Tree Hotel, the luxury of the Apsara makes for an extra-special night out. Coming to rest in front of the famous sights, passengers are treated to a tasty Thai dinner while taking in the view. The rice-barge ride takes an hour and 45 minutes to complete, traveling past Wat Arun (Temple of the Dawn).

    Thonburi klongs and The Grand Palace

    Riverside, Old City

    Bangkok’s khlongs or klongs (canals) aren’t mere remnants of the past. Many are still functioning transportation arteries that play a significant role in city life. This morning tour focuses on the scenic waterways of Thonburi. A longtailed speedboat glides you past floating kitchens, glittering temples and all kinds of colorful river scenery before you step onto dry land to explore The Grand Palace, Thailand's most famous landmark and former seat of the king. The tour takes around 5 hours.


    Ayutthaya river cruise

    Bang Pa-In, Ayutthaya

    Siam Niramit


    Packing all the splendour of the Land of Smiles into an 80-minute stage show is no easy task. But Siam Niramit succeeds – and spectacularly. How so?
