This will be our 4th trip to
Thailand and our third time to Krabi. Thailand is exotic, beautiful,
and thrillingly different. This is a relaxing trip with just two
stops - 3-nights
and 7-nights in Krabi. We depart LAX on June
19th and arrive in Bangkok on the 20th.
Bangkok certainly lives up to its reputation
as a travel hot spot in Southeast Asia. The "City of Angels"
has funky markets, upscale malls, a riverside full of surprises,
a vibrant nightlife scene, and attractions that reflect its unique
heritage. There's a modern skytrain and underground systems that
cover a large area and you can explore the riverside area by a
long-tail speedboat or river taxi. Vibrant, cosmopolitan and intriguing,
Bangkok is simply sensational. As the cultural and commercial
centre, Thailand's fascinating capital presents an everlasting
curious palette of activities, events, parties and other happenings.
From spectacular stage productions to colorful temple fairs, sumptuous
food festivals and bizarre art installations, something peculiar
goes on every day.
arrive on June 20th with our flight from LAX (stops in Singapore).
The next 2 days we will plan a a couple
of half day tours to include the Grand Palace and a Klong tour
of the canals. For a
real sense of how people in Bangkok used to live, in stilted shacks,
old wooden townhouses and dilapidated lean-tos – and still do
– see them at the Bangkok Thonburi Khlongs. Bangkok's charming
riverside is brimming with stories to tell. On this tour,
a long-tailed speedboat whisks you down the Chao Phraya River
and canals (khlongs) of Thonburi – the original site where
Bangkok was founded. Immerse yourself in the picturesque riverside
scenery, as you drift past stilted wooden homes, 'floating kitchens',
mobile shops, colonial mansions and all kinds of colorful culture
along the riverfront, before stopping at the enchanting Temple
of Dawn (Wat Arun).
During our canal tour we will visit
Wat Arun, situated on the west
bank of the Chao Phraya River. It is believed that after fighting
his way out of Ayutthaya, which was besieged by a Burmese army
at the time, King Taksin arrived at this temple just as dawn was
breaking. He later had the temple renovated and renamed
it Wat Chaeng, the Temple of the Dawn.
The beauty of the architecture and the fine craftsmanship declare
its status as a temple of the first grade and one of the most
outstanding temples in Thailand. The spire (prang) of Wat Arun
is one of Bangkok's world-famous landmarks. It has an imposing
spire over 70 metres high, beautifully decorated with tiny pieces
of colored glass and Chinese porcelain placed delicately into
If there is one must-see sight
that no visit to Bangkok would be complete without, it's the dazzling,
spectacular Grand Palace, undoubtedly the city's most famous landmark.
Built in 1782 - and for 150 years the home of the Thai King, the
Royal court and the administrative seat of government - the Grand
Palace of Bangkok is a grand old dame indeed, that continues to
have visitors in awe with its beautiful architecture and intricate
detail, all of which is a proud salute to the creativity and craftsmanship
of Thai people. Within its walls were also the Thai war ministry,
state departments, and even the mint. Today, the complex remains
the spiritual heart of the Thai Kingdom. Within
the palace complex are several impressive buildings including
Wat Phra Kaew (Temple of the Emerald Buddha),
which contains the small, very famous and greatly revered Emerald
Buddha that dates back to the 14th century. Both of these Bangkok
tours are included in this package.
The nights in Bangkok are so famous you might
remember the song, "one night in Bangkok". Bangkok nightlife
is legendary and for good reason. The city is buzzing seven nights
a week, with world famous mega-clubs and underground haunts
attracting revelers from every corner of the planet. You can find
every niche musical movement in Bangkok – from classic hip hop,
to funky vocal house and even drum ’n’ bass – and it’s this sheer
choice, along with fun-loving crowds and the classic easygoing
Thai charm that makes Bangkok the premier clubbing destination
in Asia, and one of the most boisterous party cities in the world.
The entire city takes on a vibrant flavor with an abundance of
options from a nice dinner cruise to a visit to the red-light
district or a high tech club, Bangkok certainly has it going on.
