DETAILED DESCRIPTION

Thailand’s must-see historical sights are covered in this luxury 4-day tour that takes you from boisterous Bangkok to the lazy city of Ayutthaya, the ancient capital of Siam. This specially-crafted journey by Remote Lands also makes a stop in Kanchanaburi, location of the Bridge on the River Kwai and the famous Tiger Temple, where you can come face to face with rescued tigers tended by Buddhist monks. 

DAY-TO-DAY

DAY 1: Bangkok

On Day 1 of the Bangkok and Beyond tour, we take you to Bangkok's most famous site - the Grand Palace, a sprawling complex of buildings including the revered Wat Phra Kaew, aka the Temple of the Emerald Buddha. Next, buckle up for a thrilling longtail boat ride through the canals of Thonburi for a glimpse at local river life, then head to Wat Arun - the Temple of the Dawn - or visit Wat Po and the Reclining Buddha. The recommended hotel for the first night is The Peninsula, an iconic Bangkok property located on the Chao Phraya River.

DAY 2: Bangkok

Today you unlock the secrets behind Thailand's delicious cuisine with a Thai cooking class, held in a cooking school by the river. Select fresh ingredients from the organic gardens, then prepare Thai favourites in this hands-on activity. The wonderfully fragrant and brightly-hued flower market is next on the itinerary, where garlands and bundles of fresh flowers are trucked in from the north. After that, it's onto bustling Chinatown for dinner, where the city's best Chinese seafood draws tourists and locals alike.

DAY 3: Kanchanaburi

In the morning we embark on a trip to nearby Kanchanaburi, just a couple of hours' drive from Bangkok. It's here the infamous Death Railway crosses the Bridge on the River Kwai, now a peaceful and solemn memorial to the POWs of World War II. Next up, its a visit to the Mon Tribal Village to enjoy cultural performances and some traditional Mon food, then to the breathtaking Erawan Waterfall. To truly appreciate the serenity of this beautiful city, guests can check into The Float House, a luxurious resort situated on the River Kwai.

DAY 4: Ayutthaya

The day begins with a drive to Ayutthaya, Siam's ancient capital. After a leisurely lunch aboard the boat, we explore Ayutthaya's majestic ancient temples - Wat Chai Watthanaram, Wat Phra Si Sanphet and Wat Mahathat. In the afternoon, it's back to the luxurious five-star surrounds of The Peninsula.
