The Grand Palace is the granddaddy of all Thai sights.

Building began in 1782, the year Bangkok was founded, and every monarch subsequent to King Rama I has expanded or enhanced it. The highlight is the Emerald Buddha, made from one solid piece of translucent green jade.Thailand’s most sacred Buddhist relicand the ornate temple purpose-built to house it, Wat Phra Kaew, where hundreds pay their respects each day. Apart from the amazing architecture, gilded statues and the majesty of the temple, the walls of Wat Phra Kaew’s cloisters feature must-see examples of Thai mural art, documenting the life and travels of the Buddha and scenes fromRamakien, the Thai version of the Ramayana epic.

This is a truly wonderful experience for anyone wishing to see the many sites of Bangkok’s fascinating Chao Phraya River. it gives you a taste of a bygone era when much of the city life revolved around the river & its network of canals. You can but only relax as you drift along the river, passing smiling faces, ancient temples and activities all around you.   Today, take the express boat and ride through the colorful “Canals (Klongs) Tours”. Enjoy the scenery and breezes along the Chao Phraya River. Explore the canal network around Thonburi (the west side of the Chao Phraya River), whizzing nimbly down green and peaceful canals – past traditional houses on stilts and colorful flowers decorate their verandas, wooden shacks, temples and many more.  See Bangkok as it was as you sail along the klongs.

Stop at Wat Arun, also known as the Temple of Dawn, one of the city’s most important and beguiling religious sites. The five-towered structure is covered almost entirely in pieces of colorful porcelain and designed as a representation of Mount Mehru, the Khmer home of the gods. The temple is believed to have been named by Rama I on his first sunrise visit, but in contrast with its name, it is best visited at dusk when the setting sun forms a stunning backdrop. After almost 3 hours through the klongs and the opportunity to feed the catfish, guests will disembark and return to the hotel.

One of the things to do in Bangkok is visit the home of Jim Thompson, the American businessman largely responsible for the global popularity of hand-woven Thai silk. Jim Thompson is best known today as a “brand” of luxury Thai fabric, but the man himself has a fascinating story. An American entrepreneur, he arrived in Bangkok in the 1940s and almost single-handedly revived the Thai silk industry. His disappearance in the Cameron Highlands in Malaysia almost 25 years later remains a mystery, but he is remembered in Bangkok in his distinctive home. The House is a complex of six traditional Thai-style teakwood houses, each of which he bought from owners around the country and transported to his Bangkok property. He connected them with covered walkways and proceeded to furbish them with an exceptional collection of south-east Asian antiques. Both the site and his personal story are diverting.

Chinatown, or Yaowarat as it is known locally, is a sprawling neon-lit enclave of tiny lanes, fabulous food, dramatic Chinese shrines and wiry old men sitting on plastic stools staring through thick-rimmed glasses. It’s a fantastic place just to wander around during the day, stuffing your face with weird fried things and try to figure out just what is being displayed in the Chinese pharmacy windows. Yaowarat Road itself, Chinatown’s main stretch, comes alive at night when fold-up-table restaurants spill out over the pavements, and a million and one gold shops,

with their ridiculously ostentatious facades, flick on their neon switches. It’s quite a sight. Here you will find one of the most imposing temples in Bangkok, Wat Traimit Witthayaramand the world’s largest solid gold Buddha. Weighing over five tons and standing over three meters high, it’s worth has been estimated at over US$10 million. And, 50m further on, theOdeon Circle Gate, an enormous structure that serves as the entrance to Chinatown proper.

Continue on and mumble “Pak Khlong Talad” to explore the 24-hour flower market. From dusk till dawn, Pak Khlong Talad fills city streets with the floral perfume of a thousand blooms. By the river vendors prepare fresh bouquets of lilies, orchids, and roses, and everything that could possibly blossom. Ready your nose, this is a place that will take your sense of smell away! .

BKK-009 Experience “Muay Thai” (Thai Boxing Show at Lumpini Boxing Stadium)

TIME Duration : Approx. 3 hours, 18:30 – 21:30 hr.
PRICE (THB): 2 Persons THB 4,780 / Person, 3 Persons THB 4,095 / Person, 4-6 Persons THB 3,730 / Person;

Muay Thai boxing in Bangkok is an experience not to be missed and, without doubt, the best place to watch genuine matches is at the new and improved Lumpini Boxing Stadium (also called Lumpini Boxing Stadium) in the northern suburbs of the city.

The power and grace of the fighters is impressive and bouts come thick and fast with around 20 separate fights on each programme. Bouts are fought over five, two-minute rounds, with the pace visibly picking up until the last round when the intensity of the fighters – and the crowd – becomes electric, all backed by the exotic, rhythmical music played by the oboes and drums of the Muay Thai band.

There are three ticket types but the best seats in the house are ringside. Drinks and snacks are brought round by waiting staff and there is a small snack shop but there are no fully fledged restaurants here. Bouts are arranged by weight and start with surprisingly young fighters weighing as little as 52 pounds (23kg) but most fighters are around 126 pounds (58kg), often called featherweight in fighting circles. The level of fitness of the fighters is incredible, as is the spirit of endurance shown, because in muay Thai all limbs can be used to strike the opponent: punches, elbows, knees and kicks. Kicks are the most common form of attack in most bouts, although it is common to see fighters grapple and trade punishing knees to the abdomen which are cheered loudly by the crowd.

The golden city of Ayutthaya was once the capital of an empire that ruled over all of Southeast Asia for centuries. Today, its impressive remains attest to its past glory. It was one of the richest cities in SE Asia during its heyday, but after it was attacked by the Burmese in 1767, most of the city was destroyed. It was then deserted when the capital was relocated to Bangkok and the ruins left to be over-taken by nature. However, over the past 30 years the remnants of the city have been renovated into a UNESCO historical park, which, at 85kms from Bangkok, makes an ideal daytrip from the city.
