An unforgettable holiday to Bangkok, Kanchanaburi, and Siem Reap. Experience Bangkok’s major and minor routes. Absorb the natural surroundings of Kanchanaburi. And stunned by the magnificence of Angkor Wat and Angkor Thom.
Sawatdee – Bangkok
Sawatdee! On your first day here, our staff will meet-and-greet you at the airport meeting point, and then guiding you to our private minibus with a smile. Although Thai smiles can mean a lot of things, this one is a warm welcome smile!
The City of Angels
Travel through the major Bangkok route, around the old Bangkok and the Chinatown, enjoying the magnificence of the Grand Palace, catching a glimpse of the Emerald Buddha at Wat Phra Kaew, admiring the perfect of the Reclining Buddha image at Wat Pho, and paying respect to the world’s largest solid Gold Buddha at Wat Traimit.
Authentic Canal Experience
Among hundreds of canals in Bangkok, Khlong Bangkok-Noi, once the original route of the Chao Phraya River, are a few which still retains much of its charm. Our boat will take you through this canal and stop at a few local temples, farms, and floating markets. Occasionally, when the traditional Thai puppet show is performed, we will visit the Artist House for the show. This is an extremely rare show that is unlikely to be found elsewhere.
Comfortable River Camping
Drive to the west, heading to the best known attractions in Kanchanaburi, including the War Cemetery, the Bridge over the River Khwae, Krasae Cave, and the Hellfire Pass. They’re reminders of the dark time during the Second World War, when the Japanese took control over the province, trying to build a railroad across the regions, in order to attack the British in Myanmar and India. Today, we stay overnight in a camping resort, enjoying a special Thai massage session and a delicious BBQ dinner.
Zipline – Floating Resort
Travel to the Treetop Adventure Park. We’ll enjoy 30 stations of adventurous climbing, ziplining, and sky biking in this park, which surrounded by nature and the evergreen jungle of Kanchanaburi. Then board a long-tail boat to check-in at River Kwai Jungle Rafts, a resort floating right above the historic river: the Khwae Yai River; and well decorated with the concept of Mon traditional housing. There is no electricity! We use wick lamps during the night for lighting to conserve the concept and natural surroundings, and the water flowing underneath is a great eco-cooling system run by the river.
To stay at this floating raft, we do not only support the community of Mon, but also feel close to the nature and abandon all the busy things behind. If the morning walk to a Mon temple and village doesn’t sound interesting to you, just let the sounds of the jungle wake you up. Get on a boat and return to the pier. Then continue by our minibus to Amphawa, a district in Samut Songkhram known for its traditional charm and authenticity. Enjoy a local boat trip through canals and rivers visiting local attractions and temples.
The Tonle Sap – Siem Reap
Wake up early to attend the Alms Round, giving alms to the monks. As the sun rises, Buddhist monks in this area depart from their temple by a paddle boat to collect food from laypeople, a distinctive practice rarely found in other regions. Travel to the Umbrella Pull-down Market, where awnings are pulled down within a minute to allow the train entering its station. Return to Bangkok and catch a flight to Siem Reap. In Cambodia, we’ll enjoy a boat trip, through a charming mixture of nature and a feeling of countryside, around the Tonle Sap or the Great Lake, one of the most biodiverse ecosystems on this planet.
Angkor Wat – Angkor Thom
Take a historic journey to the South Gate of Angkor Thom, visiting Prasat Bayon, Baphuon, Royal Enclosure, Phimeanakas, the Elephant Terrace, and the Leper King Terrace. Then travel to the untouched temple of Ta Prohm and the magnificent Angkor Wat in the afternoon. Angkor Wat holds the record as the world’s largest temple complex. It was built by King Suryavarman II as a royal temple of his capital of Yasodharapura, representing the universe and Mount Meru, or home of the angels and divinities in the Hindu mythology. Enjoy dining while watching the Apsara Dance Performance at a local restaurant.
Phnom Kulen National Park
Drive to the Phnom Kulen National Park, which is home to the historic Stung Kbal Spean River, interesting stone carvings of the Valley of a 1000 Lingas, the terrace of Sdach Kamlung, two amazing waterfalls, and the sacred Preah Ang Thom, the worshiping God of Phnom Kulen. Enjoy a picnic lunch. Return to Siem Reap, traveling to Artisans Angkor, observing traditional techniques used for creating high-quality handicraft items. Artisans Angkor is a prove that the ancient Khmer craftsmanship is still alive.
Say farewell to Cambodia. Check-out time is before noon. We can transfer you to the airport at anytime.
