Day 2: Bangkok’s finest temples and Thonburi canal tour

Thailand is known as a wonderland of golden pagodas. That is the reason why whenever coming to this country, every tourist should stop to visit at least one of their temples.

First of all, we recommend you to start your tour at Wat Traimit. This is the largest solid golden Buddha in the world. There is a 5.5-tonne statue of Buddha that dates back to the 13th century. The second floor has a wide range of 3D presentations demonstrating Chinese traders’ history in Bangkok while the 3rd floor contains the full story of the Golden Buddha so you can learn about the history of the sculpture as well as the temple thoroughly.

Next, continue your tour at Wat Pho, an impressive temple on the old city streets. The special thing about this temple is the “Lion Sleep” position of the Buddha statue inside it. After finishing seeing this sheer-size temple, you can visit the magnificent Grand Palace. It has such a vast ground with so many dazzling buildings representing Thai-Buddhist architecture such as Wat Phra Kaew.

Then, in the afternoon, you can meander through the old-fashioned canals and enjoy the tranquil atmosphere of life on the traditional “long-tail” boat. After that, pay a visit at Wat Arun, which is located on the west bank of Thonburi to explore the 79-meter tower.

One day discovering Bangkok is enough, now let’s fly to another famous place in Thailand. Our first option is Phuket.

Day 4: Full-day Cheow Lan Lake boat trip

For an ideal day at Cheow Lan Lake, we recommend you to start off at a colorful local market to enjoy the early atmosphere of the local people. Next, cruise the lake in a longtail boat. When you reach the perfect area to swim, immerse yourself in the green water and then, you can choose between go hiking, go kayaking or hang out at the National Park to relax.
