This Bangkok short break focuses on the bustling city and its tuk-tuk filled streets - with heaps of museums, temples, and street food to get involved with. Not bad for a whistle-stop adventure, hey?
Please note: This trip is unguided, meaning you will not be accompanied by a Trip Leader.
Upon arrival, you’ll be met by an airport representative and taken to your transfer vehicle. Next stop: your hotel! Drop your bags, get checked in and explore for the rest of the day. Fill up on culture at one of the 100+ museums, immerse yourself in a new religion at one of the royal temples, and get your food and shopping fix from one of the 100,000 street vendors.
Kick off your Bangkok rush hour with a full-day city highlights tour visiting some of the most iconic sights. Visit Jim Thompson's house - the Thai silk businessman and designer who helped revive Thailand's silk industry from total extinction before he disappeared in the Malaysian jungle in 1974. Then boat along the majestic Chao Phraya River and stop at the Grand Palace (once home to the Emerald Buddha), and tuk-tuk it to the grand buddhist temple Wat Pho.
Today, prepare to get your taste buds tingling, Thai style. Head out on a traditional tuk-tuk ride and sample all the delicious street eats your tummy can handle. From skewered meats and fish paste balls to Thai-Indian creations like freshly baked roti and flavoursome curries, you’re sure to discover a whole bunch of new and exciting tastes. Tonight, we’ll pay a visit to the majestic Wat Pho, where you can feast your eyes on the temple’s sparkling golden towers all lit up. Round off the night with a visit to Pak Klong Talat, Thailand’s largest flower market, before hopping back in the tuk-tuk for the journey home.
After breakfast we're off. Short but sweet! Transfer from the hotel to the Bangkok airport to continue on your adventure.
