BANGKOK – CITY AND KLONGS TOUR – NIGHT TRAIN TO CHIANG MAI

After breakfast, the first stop is Wat Pho – Bangkok’s oldest and largest temple. As you arrive early you can listen to the morning chants of the monks. In this temple, a huge statue of reclining Buddha is enshrined. Next, we see the Grand Complex which also encompasses Wat Phra Kaeo, one of Thailand’s most revered shrines, housing the statue of Emerald Buddha made from jade.

We stop for lunch at a local Thai Restaurant. Here you can savour various aromatic and delectable Thai delicacies. The restaurant is located next to the river where you can enjoy the river view, old town city part and authentic Thai food/seafood at the same time.

Then, you will transfer the Tha Chang pier and board a classic long-tail boat for a nice introductory trip to Bangkok’s other side! For around 1 hour, you may get a great time seeing the city life around the river and its network of ‘klongs’ (canals). In some ways, it is a trip through the past where you’ll see wooden houses on stilts, local folks doing their laundry/washing up/taking a bath in the klong, monitor lizards suddenly swimming by, and lots of other fascinating sights

In the afternoon, you will transfer to a night train to Chiang Mai as staying overnight there.

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch

Accommodation: Overnight on Train.

day 3
BANGKOK – CHIANG MAI – ANCIENT CITY

On arrival, you are met and taken to the hotel (check-in time around noon). Head out with your guide to explore the riverfront Warorot Market, which is a combination of colorful flowers, pungent spices and friendly but bustling crowds. You will also take a stroll at the alley next to the market, filled with textiles, hill tribe clothes, silks, hats and beads.

At the market, we also stop for street food lunch here with a great range of Thai food for you to choose from such as noodle (There are many different kinds of noodle for you to choose from as well), rice with steamed chicken, or Northern food style which cannot be found in Bangkok). The street food in Thailand is famous for its taste yet very cheap.

From the market take a Samlor, or rickshaw ride along Thapae Road, down through the city wall, passing residential and important government buildings around the city and return to the hotel.

The rest of the day is free at leisure.

Continue to what is probably Chiang Mai’s most famous landmark: Wat Phrathat Doi Suthep. The temple is located at the summit of 5,000-foot-high Doi Suthep Mountain. You can get your adrenalin pumping by climbing 300 steps or, take the cable tram. On clear days there are amazing views of valley.

After the tour at Wat Doi Suthep, you will stop at a nice local restaurant surrounded by nature, with the view of Huay Kaew waterfall. This restaurant is famous for its homemade menu which they make everything themselves even the curry paste. You will get to enjoy the food and cool down from the heat with the chilly air from the nature.
