    Bangkok City & Temples                            $105      $60       $20        $45    $20
    Among several magnificent temples in Bangkok, the three most distinctive are Wat Traimit, Wat Pho, and Wat Benchamabophit. Wat Traimit houses a striking 3-meter-tall Golden Buddha image--a gleaming, 5-ton figure of solid gold. Wat Pho, which features the largest reclining Buddha image in Thailand and the Chedi of the kings, is Bangkok's oldest and largest temple. Finally there is Wat Benchamabophit, a fine modern Thai temple constructed from white Carrara marble with ornate crossbeams decorated with lacquer and gold.

    Grand Palace                                                 $120     $75       $35        $55    $30
    The Grand Palace was the seat not only of the king and his court, but of the entire government administration. The architecture is vibrantly Thai, though there are some European designs, as well. Brilliantly colored and gilded and decorated with intricate detail, the overall effect is dazzling. The palace served as the official residence of the kings of Thailand from the 18th to the mid-20th century. The most famous building is Wat Phra Kaew (Temple of the Emerald Buddha), regarded as Thailand's most sacred Buddhist temple. The main temple building houses the Emerald Buddha, the most revered object in Thailand. Also within the grounds are palaces used for various occasions. The majority of halls and palaces can be viewed from outside only, but the exteriors are captivating enough to please. The entire Grand Palace is closed during special royal ceremonies and during visiting heads of state, while other buildings (such as the Throne Hall and Coronation Hall) are Sat/Sun and public holidays, during special ceremonies and on Buddhist holidays.
     
    Bangkok City Tour & Grand Palace             $150    $100     $45        $80     $40
    Begin with a tour of Bangkok City, and visit three of the most unusual Buddhist temples in Bangkok: Wat Trimitr, with its invaluable Golden Buddha; Wat Po, the most extensive temple in Bangkok, with its colossal Reclining Buddha and the Chedis of the kings; and Wat Benchamabophit. The Grand Palace was the seat not only of the king and his court, but the entire government administration. The architecture is vibrantly Thai, though there are some European designs as well, and the overall effect is dazzling.

    Thonburi Klongs                                             $155     $80       $10        $40      $ 5
    Among the best ways to explore Bangkok is by boat. A cruise along the Chao Phraya River - the city's lifeblood - and the canals of Thonburi reveal scenes at odds with the bustling, modern inner city. Visitors get a glimpse of the serene and simple lifestyle of riverbank dwellers. This picturesque view is what earned Bangkok the title of "Venice of the East." En route, stop at Wat Arun (Temple of Dawn), one of the most attractive temples in Thailand.

    Rice Barge Cruise                                            $115   $70       $30         $55     $25
    A visit to Bangkok would not be complete without spending some time on the Chao Phraya River. An ideal way to take in the “River of Kings” is to join a tour on an old-style wooden rice barge converted to accommodate passengers. You will be picked up at your hotel by van or coach and depart from River City pier by taxi-boat, touring along the Chao Praya River. An English-speaking guide points out all the famous landmarks, such as the Temple of the Dawn (Wat Arun), the Grand Palace and Royal Barge Museum. On all sides, cross-river ferries, speeding long-tails, river taxis and trains of massive barges pulled by tugboats a fraction of their size haul their cargos to and fro. Disembark near Wat Nairong in Klong Bangkok Noi and board a converted rice barge for a leisurely trip back to the starting point. The barge has a centerpiece table full of the country’s delightful tropical fruits for you to sample to your heart’s content. Soft drinks and Thai whiskey are offered on the rice barge without extra charge.
     
    Jim Thompson House                                      $95     $50        $10        N/A        N/A
    One of the best examples of traditional Thai residential architecture and a breathtaking collection of Southeast Asian art are exemplified in a house built by an American national. Nonetheless, Jim Thompson’s House is one of Bangkok’s more popular destinations. Thompson, born in Delaware, fell in love with Thailand while posted as an intelligence agent in Bangkok during WWII. He later made it his permanent home and started a business supplying fine Thai silk to overseas fashion houses, saving a dying cottage industry. Thompson collected an impressive range of art works, and sections of derelict teak houses, assembling them into a teak house/museum complex set in a lush garden alongside central Bangkok’s Saen Saep Canal. The main house is full of tastefully displayed Asian art and curios. The living areas have been preserved as they were when Thompson lived there before his mysterious disappearance in 1967. Near the entrance is a newly built Thai restaurant and bar, plus a sizeable boutique selling quality silk items, books and prints.

    One of the best examples of traditional Thai residential architecture and a breathtaking collection of Southeast Asian art are exemplified in a house built by an American national. Nonetheless, Jim Thompson’s House is one of Bangkok’s more popular destinations for visitors. Jim Thompson, who was born in Delaware in 1906, fell in love with Thailand while posted as an intelligence agent in Bangkok during WWII. He later made it his permanent home and started a business supplying fine Thai silk to overseas fashion houses, single-handedly saving what had been a dying cottage industry. Thompson collected an impressive range of art works, and sections of derelict teak houses, assembling them into a teak house/museum complex set in a lush garden alongside central Bangkok’s Saen Saep Canal. The main house is full of tastefully displayed Asian art and curios. The living areas have been preserved as they were when Thompson lived there before his mysterious disappearance in 1967.

    Hiking the Colors of Bangkok                             $335    $170       $45      $100      N/A
    (Walking tour)
    Participants will be surprised by what happens behind and away from the concrete walls and buildings of Bangkok. After visiting a typical local temple, walk at a relaxed pace through one of the poorest neighborhoods of Bangkok. Although people don’t have much by our own western standards, they’re all more than friendly, and happy with their lives. After, go for a short long-tail boat ride across the Chao Phraya River. On the other side, we enter a jungle of banana, mango, papaya and coconut trees. A little further on, visit a beautiful park, rest a while, and feed the hundreds of fish waiting at the pond. Then, walk to our lunch destination. A Thai lunch will be served in a typical local setting. Continue our journey in a real “samlor” (Thai rickshaw or “bicycle taxi”), to cycle through the greenest part of Bangkok, before reaching the jetty. A long-tail boat awaits, ready to bring us back to the familiar concrete side of Bangkok.

    Cultural Show                                                         $250   $145        $25    $100         $20
    There are countless floating markets throughout the country. The colorfully clad merchants at these lively markets paddle along congested canals in sturdy canoes laden with fresh fruit and vegetables to sell to shoppers on the banks. Bargaining is common, but don’t expect to get the price down more than a few baht. The most famous of the floating markets is Damnoen Saduak, about 100km southwest of Bangkok. This buzzing market is at its best in the early morning. Our tour includes a visit to Phra Pathom Chedi in Nakorn Pathom, supposedly the largest pagoda in Southeast Asia.
     
    Exploring Chinatown & Thonburi by Bicycle          N/A      $140      N/A         $75        $75
    Our half-day cycle trip is a fascinating glimpse into the Bangkok of old. We take in some of the more popular Bangkok landmarks: Chinatown, Wat Arun (Temple of the Dawn), and the Royal Barge Museum, but also go off the beaten path. Start by exploring the bustling Chinatown area (Yoawarat) before crossing the Chao Phraya to the more serene and less visited temples and sites of Thonburi. Ride along quiet back roads of this area, stopping at the occasional market as we head to the Princess Mother Memorial Park and museum. Some lesser known temples, the Chao Praya river, Wat Arun (Temple of the Dawn) and the Royal Barge Museum are all part of this interesting and varied bike trip. This is a very gentle 15-km ride along quiet back roads and suitable for anyone that can ride a bike.
