What we will do
  • Our excursion starts with the majestic Maha Jessada Bodin pavilion, an idea spot to take a few pictures of the old city.
  • We overlook the entire area below with a panoramic view of the Golden Mount temple, the highest in Bangkok, the historic fort with the ancient city walls and the Wat Ratchanatdaram, a Buddhist temple with a pink pyramid named Loha Pradat (pagoda with a metal tip), 36 metres tall and the only one in the world.
  • Our sightseeing coach tour continues with the Constitution Monument, Sunday Plaza, the City Pillar Shrine, the Grand Palace, the Emerald Buddha Temple, the Ministry of Defence, the Temple of the Reclining Buddha and Wat Suthat, where we can admire the enormous bronze Buddha dating back to the Sukhothai period (15th century) as well as the frescoes in the Ordination Hall.
  • Right in front of Wat Suthat, we can admire the Giant Swing. In the past, these two teak columns were used during a Brahmanic festivity: before the ban in 1932, young Hindu monks used to swing and rotate 180° trying to catch a satchel filled with gold coins with their teeth. Even if a few managed to catch it, many died during this dangerous activity.
  • After our tour, we enjoy an international buffet lunch at a local restaurant, after which we stop to take photos at the fabulous Marble Temple (Wat Benchamabophit), built in precious Carrara marble.
  • Finally, before returning to the ship, we have some free time to do some shopping.
