When, what, how and who, 1 day.


During this must-do introduction of Bangkok I will take you to the cultural highlights of the city.

We start at the famous Royal Palace and the Wat Phra Keow. I will introduce our beloved royal family to you and take you to the hidden secrets of this Palace.
You will get a clear understanding why all Thai families love the royal family so much. You don't have to wonder anymore why we cover our walls with photographs of our King and his family.

We continue to the Wat Pho which houses the biggest reclining Buddha statue of the city. Golden showers of glittering light ponder on your face. While you walk passed his beautiful expression you wonder how it would feel to reach a state of enlightenment.
After a break of silence we get on board a local boat to explore the local way of life next to the canals of this once so famous Venice of the east.

The final destination today is Chinatown. There are markets to discover and century old alleys to be seen in this always bustling part of Bangkok.
