Siam Arun Highlights
What we will do
On the way to the pier we will make a brief stop for a local street side breakfast. We will experience the local residents as they make their ritual morning food donations to the saffron-robed monks.
Taking a local ferry we will cross the River of Kings to the old capital of Thailand. At Wat Arun we will explore the famous central grand pagoda that has dominated the river skyline since the early days of Bangkok. As we walk around the peaceful surrounding grounds and ordination hall, we will explain about the beautiful culture of Thailand.
Crossing back over the river we will walk through the historical dried seafood market. We will mingle with the locals as they go about their daily life’s.
At Wat Pho, the oldest and one of the largest temple complexes in Bangkok, we will explore the beautiful temple grounds filled with calmness and an almost mystical aura. Your first sight of the impressive golden Reclining Buddha will leave you totally spellbound.
We will make a small detour into the monks’ living quarters. As we quietly stroll through we will enjoy the peaceful atmosphere and hopefully, we may get a peek into the private life of the monks.
Our final stop will be the beautiful scent filled flower and vegetable markets. As we wander through the colourful stalls that are filled with dazzling flora all of our senses will be awakened.
Don’t forget, the following day we will send you a link to download the memories of your Bangkok experience.
