The Grand Palace is the historic royal mini-city located on the banks of the Chao Phraya River. It comprises dozens of buildings, courtyards, halls, temples, pagodas, garden and even a miniature mountain. The palace was the residence of the kings of Siam from 1782 to 1925 and among the attractions are the Funeral and Coronation halls while another big draw is the Temple of the Emerald Buddha, where a 45cm statue of the Gautama Buddha was carved from one piece of solid translucent jade.
Adjacent to the Grand Palace is the city’s oldest temple, Wat Pho, which is famed for the Reclining Buddha. This 43 metre-long figure is covered in gold leaf and reaches up to 15 metres at its highest point. There are also more than 1,000 images of the Lord Buddha as well as a sacred tree.
Visit the Wat Traimit temple, which is home to a
5.5-tonne solid gold Buddha with an intriguing tale to tell. The Golden Buddha
is believed to be about seven centuries old and at some point it was covered in
plaster to hide its true value. Over time, this was forgotten and it was only
when it fell in 1954 that its true composition was discovered. To round off the
tour, we call in at a local lapidary factory and showroom where you will be
able to get locally made jewelry, handicrafts and silk at competitive prices.
Start off your day at the world famous
floating market of ''Damnern Saduak'', which is located about 100 km southwest
of Bangkok, just off the longest and straightest canal in Thailand; the Damnoen
If you are looking to try a new experience, this is definitely for you. Thailand has countless floating markets throughout the country, many of which are within a couple of hours of the capital.
You will see thee colourfully clad merchants at these lively markets paddle along the congested canals in sturdy canoes brimming with fresh fruits and vegetables to sell to shoppers on the banks.
There is definitely a lot of chatter and activity happening and bargaining is not uncommon – but that's half of the fun! Just don't expect to get the price down more than a few baht. Apart from the fresh fruits and vegetables, you can also find flowers to everyday necessities, leaving nothing to be desired.
You will visit the lively market at its finest, early in the morning, before the large crowds arrive and the day's heat breaks. A truly exciting and fun way to immerse yourself in to the local life and go bargain hunting!
Check out from hotel and you will be transferred to Airport for your return flight
