Journey Itinerary

Day 1: Bangkok.

Arrive in Bangkok and immerse yourself in this throbbing metropolis of ancient temples and glittering skyscrapers. This evening, experience the wonders of the city at dusk as you visit some of the most impressive and sacred temples in the world. Take a short boat ride across the picturesque Chao Phraya River to the old part of Bangkok. Embark on a guided walking discovery through the Thonburi district, pausing to sample mouthwatering snacks at food stalls along the way. Wander or take a tuk tuk around the neighbourhood to glimpse Thai temples, Chinese shrines, churches and mosques that reveal the city’s true cultural diversity. Stop at the Princess Mother Memorial Park to admire the beautifully landscaped garden dedicated to the mother of the late King Rama IX. Continue to Wat Kalayanamitr, a family temple built in 1825, and the famous Wat Arun, or Temple of Dawn, which is covered in pieces of multi-coloured porcelain and casts an imposing image over the river.
The Siam Hotel (Siam Suite)

Day 2: Bangkok.

Follow your own map this morning. Later, take your reservation at Issaya Siamese Club to savour exceptional modern Asian fusion dishes in a traditional Thai house. Take a private vehicle through the alleys of the inner-city district to discover the eclectic street art hidden amongst some of Bangkok’s remarkable heritage buildings. Arrive at YenakArt Villa, an architectural gem that houses exhibitions by some of Thailand’s most prominent artists. Here, meet the gallery manager for a VIP tour and an audience with the exhibiting artist.

This evening promises a local twist on a signature A&K experience – sundowners. Board the only speedboat permitted on the Chao Phraya River (it’s owned by a member of the Thai Royal Family). Enjoy a sundowner and canapes as you glide over the river and let Bangkok reveal its many colours.
