Bangkok Evening Cruise - tour description
This excursion program is a variation of the classic tour to Bangkok and the first half of the day goes exactly the same, always in the same group with the same guides.
As a rule, tourists gather around Pattaya hotels around 6: 30 in the morning. Therefore, if breakfasts in your hotel start at a later time, make sure in advance to have a lunch box (suhpay) at the reception.
In almost all cases, the group will be taken by minibus, although during the high season there may be departures and on a big bus. It all depends on the number of people in a group on any given day.
From Pattaya to Bangkok, about two hours of clean driving on an excellent expressway. Halfway down, a stop will be made so that tourists can eat lunch boxes, smoke, drink coffee.
Regarding traffic jams in Bangkok itself. Of course, our driver will try to drive around those places in the city where such delays are most likely. But if one cannot avoid meeting this ulcer of modern megacities, one should understand that traffic jams in Bangkok are not “deaf” and they are not promised for many hours if they hit them. They are always at least slowly, but still moving forward and from point to point you will definitely get!
The area of the Thai capital, where the first part of our excursion program will be held, is recognized as one of the most widely visited places in the world. And indeed there is always very, very crowded. Visitors to the historic part of Bangkok may get the impression that this is a real Babylonian Babel in reality. Judging by the number of language adverbs and skin colors of all sorts of pilgrims and tourists. But in the clothes can be traced some monotony ...
Bangkok's temples have a tight dress code
Some of those who want to visit the temples of Bangkok do not know, unfortunately, that there is a rather tight dress code. And dishonest sellers of excursions very often do not warn their customers about this rule. I will focus on this special attention. The requirements for clothing are:
- Shoulders are covered (for example, a T-shirt with sleeves will go).
- The legs are covered ankle-deep.
- There are socks on their feet to cover their heels.
- Clothing should be non-defiant, transparent and not tight.
If you still went on an excursion to Bangkok without having appropriate clothing with you, you will have to rent it already in Bangkok before entering the Thai shrines. But you have to understand that she is given on bail, such clothes are very non-photogenic and before you anyone could wear them. Therefore, it is better to have your own.
The excursion program "Bangkok Evening Cruise"
You will be introduced to the oldest temple of Bangkok, Wat Po (or the Temple of the Recumbent Buddha). Its main attraction is a huge statue of the Reclining Buddha, which is 46 meters long and 15 meters high. It is covered with gold leaf, and the eyes and legs of this statue are inlaid with mother of pearl.
You also see a very beautiful sight - the changing of the guard of the Royal Guard!
The Temple of the Emerald Buddha, or Wat Phra Kaew, is used for ceremonies and celebrations in which the King of Thailand participates. Photographing and filming on the territory of this temple is not allowed, you can take pictures on Palace Square and in all rooms of the temple complex.
The next program will be a trip along the Chao Phraya River, or Menam, which flows through the capital. From the historical part of the city to it is literally two steps. This is the easiest way to get acquainted with the sights of Bangkok. You can see traditional Thai houses on stilts, Chinatown, a floating market, the Temple of the Morning Dawn, as well as feed very many catfish. They ride on a classic Thai long-tail boat with an awning, so the sun at this time will not burn.
The famous observation deck of the Bayok Sky Hotel is located on the 84 floor of the huge building of one of the highest hotels in Asia. From here you can see the fabulous panorama of the metropolis and its immediate surroundings. Photos are great! By the way, you will have lunch in the same tall building! Going down to the 77 floor, you will find yourself in a wonderful restaurant with a large selection of dishes from different cuisines. Of course lunch is included in the tour price.
After lunch, you will have about an hour of free time, which can be spent essentially as you wish. You can pay for visiting the Bangkok Oceanarium - "Siam Ocean World".
Towards the end of the program, in the evening, you will be taken to the pier, where guests will board the comfortable Princess Siam pleasure ship. On it you will go on an evening adventure along the Chao Phraya River (Menam) flowing through the capital. During the three-hour cruise you will see from the water the wonderful panoramas and sights of the City of Angels, as they call it Bangkok. Beautiful views of the evening capital, seeing off the sun beyond the horizon, will give your photos a unique scenery and atmosphere. Skilled chefs will cook for dinner a variety of dishes of Thai, European, Chinese cuisine. Dinner will be accompanied by live music. Tired but full of impressions, you will return to Pattaya by eleven in the evening.
