DAY 2-4 BANGKOK   exploring the highlights and beyond

On arrival in Bangkok you’ll be met by your guide and driver for the transfer to your hotel. A quiet haven in the heart of the city, in a unique traditional setting.

During your stay you’ll enjoy a selection of activities tailored to your interests. Typically you guide will walk you through the colourful flower markets before taking you on a small boat to whizz through the city's labyrinth of klongs (canals) - a great way to get a flavour of typical local life. The route will bring you to the opulent Grand Palace and Wat Po temple before a few hours back at the hotel to relax. In the evening you’ll embark on a fascinating tuk-tuk tour that will take you to corners of the city that many visitors miss; en route you’ll taste some of Bangkok's most delicious dishes.

Further adventures in the city could include a cycle or walking tour around some of the most interesting landmarks, or dinner and cocktails with panoramic views at one of the best rooftop bars.

During your stay you’ll also visit the nearby Elephant Nature Park, a sanctuary for rescued elephants.  

This part of the holiday can be tailored to incorporate a camping adventure with the Elephant Mahout Programme which will take you further afield to observe elephants in a their natural jungle habitat. Talk to your travel expert to find out more about the “elephant friendly” experiences available.
