Day 2 - Bangkok - Exploration

Breakfast at the hotel.
Start the morning with a trip to Wat Pho which is one of Bangkok’s most enchanting temples. Arrive just as the resident monks gather for their morning chants. Witness this deeply spiritual ritual and gain a better sense of Thailand’s Buddhist heritage.
After the chants, take a walk around Wat Pho and see the vast collection of religious treasures on display. Admire the famed reclining Buddha image, which stretches 45-metres in length. Learn about the symbolism of the Buddha’s intricate footprint and witness devotees making offerings to this revered image.
The tour then continues to the nearby Grand Palace, which has served as the seat of Thailand's revered Royal Family for more than two centuries. Take a walk around the vast grounds, stopping in to explore the various temples, throne halls and museums within the compound. Visit the Emerald Buddha, the most revered Buddhist image in Thailand, and hear about its mysterious origins.
In this afternoon, transfer to the famous master class studio of Nattayasala Hun Lakhon Lek, internationally known as the ‘Joe Louis Thai Puppet Theatre’.
Visit the artist’s working space and explore the fundamentals of traditional Thai puppet theatre. Learn about different characters like Hanuman the monkey god, and see the different elements of tradition and functionality come into play.

Have a laugh and sing the famous Thai song ‘Lao Duang Duen’, during a casual karaoke session.
Observe and imitate the basics of Thai classical dance, as performed by the professional puppeteers. Under tutelage of the professionals, carefully reproduce the moves of the puppets. Receive an adorable little Hanuman puppet at the end of the workshop.
Overnight in Bangkok.

Notes

Grand Palace is one of the most popular destinations and is usually a number one must-see place in Bangkok. Not surprisingly, it receives millions of tourists annually. To get the best of your visit and avoid crowds on spot we will allow your guide flexibility to visit the temple either early morning or late afternoon if possible in your itinerary. If you by any means decide that there are too many people for your liking, the guide can bring you to an alternative temple in the area such as Wat Saket or Wat Suthat, this decision needs to be made before entering the Grand Palace.

Day 3 - Bangkok - Exploration

Breakfast at the hotel.
Today’s tour starts early morning at 7.00 a.m. Travel away from Bangkok’s city centre for a visit to local markets and countryside neighbourhoods. Take a one-hour drive in a private vehicle, leaving the high-rises behind and enter a land of lush landscapes and more traditional wooden architecture.
Stop at a local railway station where a bustling country market has gradually taken over the railway tracks. Notice the sudden activity when a train pulls into the station, as the vendors quickly remove their stalls from the tracks. Then, after the train departs, watch them set up shop and resume business as usual.
Continue to the charming and quaint floating market Tha Kha. Here, take a stroll around the market and admire the floating shops, stalled out on traditional sampan boats. Take in the lifestyle of the locals and leave the main market area for a relaxing paddle boat ride.
Pass by an old section of the floating market and enter a labyrinth of quiet canals. See the different houses built alongside the waterways and catch glimpses of local life in this rural Thai province. Return back to the hotel.
Spend the rest of the afternoon at leisure.

International travelers to Thailand will no longer be required to show proof of vaccination or ATK test results from October 1st, 2022 onward.

In a new move to attract travelers during peak season, Thailand is doing away with the requirement of needing vaccination certificates or Covid-19 negative results in the case of unvaccinated passengers. Additionally, those infected with Covid-19, but have mild symptoms don’t need to isolate from next month. The same applies to those who test positive but display no symptoms.

Public Health Minister Anutin Charnvirakul announced these changes on Thursday after the National Communicable Diseases Committee (NCDC) had a meeting on Wednesday.

Instead of isolating those who have contracted the disease would be required to wear a mask, socially distance themselves from others and wash their hands frequently for the first five days. They also need to stay away from those who are immunocompromised and vulnerable.

Dr. Sophon Iamsirithaworn, deputy director-general of the Department of Disease Control, informed that since the present Covid-19 mutation doesn’t cause serious symptoms in most people, disease control measures can be relaxed.

National Security Council secretary-general Supoj Malaniyom added that the new measures are being put in place to help improve the economic conditions of the country.

“The primary aim will be to ensure the economy is back on track so people could earn their livelihoods once more,” he said.
