Positive energy of Bangkok

(8h)

We will meet in the hotel lobby at 9:00 am to go out onto the streets of the city as soon as possible and experience with all senses the positive energy of Bangkok . We'll start richly ... and see 150 million USD in one piece of gold - a statue of the Golden Buddha . An interesting fact is that for 200 years the statue was covered with a layer of plaster to protect it from being looted. It was only during maintenance work in the 20th century that its true shape and value was discovered - 5 tonnes of gold !

 

After such a view, you will not be impressed by the prices of some delicacies at the next point of the trip - Chinatown . Here we can taste shark fin soups or edible bird nests (from USD 25 to USD 100 per bowl!). Fortunately, founded in the eighteenth century, the district is also famous for its delicious and cheap Chinese steamed dumplings and you can't miss it.

 

After trying Chinese cuisine , it's time for spiritual food again. This time we will see the largest, measuring up to 46m statue of the lying Buddha , whose feet are 5m high! It is located in the Wat Pho temple, which was also the first public university in Thailand , and is now the center of traditional medicine and massage... so maybe it's time for foot massage?

 

Relaxed we will get to know the largest palace buildings complex of the King of Thailand . Built in 1782, it was the seat of the king and the entire state administration until the early 20th century. Important national celebrations are currently taking place here. In the palace, we will also see the temple Wat Phra Kaew with an inconspicuous (66cm) statue of the Emerald Buddha , which is the most important destination of pilgrimages of faithful from all over the country.

 

When trying the variety at the ubiquitous street food stalls, it's important to remember that during our trip the time will come for the right lunch - and it's worth leaving some space for dishes of famous Thai cuisine world-wide .

 

Bangkok is crossed by the Menam River and numerous canals , so we invite you to cruise on traditional long stern boats on the canals of the right bank Thonburi district . The first stop we will make at the Temple of Dawn Wat Arun , which is the oldest temple in Bangkok and is known for five towers ( prang ) all covered with decorative porcelain tiles. During the further cruise through the Thonburi district canals we will be able to see the old wooden buildings of this part of Bangkok and try to spot living on the banks ... dragons!

 

After returning ashore (around 17.00) we will head to the hotel, but before we do, we suggest you join - or basically take the elevator - a drink on the 84th floor of the Bayioke Tower , from where there is a fantastic view of the city (payable additional 400THB / person).

Royal Bangkok

(8h)

In the morning we will meet in the hotel lobby to set off to explore the City of Angels , because Thai people have been calling their capital for over 200 years. We will move tuk tuk.

 

At the beginning we will go to the gate of the Royal Palace and visit the holiest place in Thailand, i.e. the Temple of the Emerald Buddha. It is a royal building, considered by many to be the most beautiful in all of Thailand. You will learn about the history of the city and hear several stories about the Royal family.

 

Then we will visit the Temple of the Reclining Buddha , where the largest and most famous statue in Bangkok is located. Wat Pho Temple is considered the first university in Thailand. We will get acquainted with the history of the Buddha and listen to interesting facts about religion itself. A break for cool drinks, coffee and lunch and a walk around the flower market.

 

We will go to a fragment of the KHON theatrical performance at the Royal Theater (about 25 min.). Great costumes, set design and theater dancers. KHON Theater is an adaptation of the epic RAMAKIEN . An optional attraction will be a cruise ship cruise on the Bangkok River. Return to the hotel and free time.

 

 

ATTENTION!


The Royal Palace and Royal Temples group enters only with a Thai guide with the appropriate license. Dress appropriately long light pants (ladies optional skirts) and shirts that play shoulders and neckline. Clothes cannot be see-through. A scarf alone is not enough!

Guide: Polish + Thai (English) Transport: tuk tuk, public transport

Time travel

(8h)

We meet in the hotel lobby in the morning to move to the second half of the 18th century after traveling several dozen kilometers. At that time, the world's largest city had over 1 million inhabitants! It was founded in the mid-fourteenth century Ayutthaya - the previous capital of Thailand, which was an important trade center with routes to China and India.

 

In the past, you could meet buyers of many nationalities on the streets, among others Chinese, Portuguese, Dutch, English and French trading among others rice, spices, wood and leather . As it turns out, here we can find the Polish trace in history , because in 1657 it was also visited by the Polish Jesuit missionary Michał Piotr Boym , who was an orientalist, naturalist, cartographer and one of the first European sinologists.

 

The city delighted with its architecture and wealth , which quickly attracted Burmese neighbors of Thailand. They attacked Ayutthaya to capture and plunder it ... unfortunately effectively - the city was not reborn again and slowly overgrown with the jungle. However, this currently adds mystery to him, and it is thanks to the rooted Buddha head that the Wat Mahathat temple looks so special and is the most famous object in Ayutthaya .

 

So we continue our trip and visit the pride of the city Wat Si Sanphet - the largest temple of the three bells at that time, in which the ashes of the three rulers of Ayutthaya are deposited. Immediately afterwards we will move to the beautiful gardens of the summer royal palace Bang Pa In, where we can see charming buildings of various architectural styles and live plant sculptures in the shape of elephants.

 

Time for lunch in one of the local restaurants, and for dessert necessarily originating from Ayutthaya Roti Sai Mai , which is a multi-colored cotton candy wrapped in a thin cake.

 

Finally, we will visit Viharn Pra Monghol Bopitr - the favorite temple of the current Queen of Thailand, rebuilt in 1956 for Burmese donations made on the occasion of the 200th anniversary of conquest and plunder Ayutthaya.

 

After returning to the hotel, you will understand better why Ayutthaya was an inspiration for the palace and temple architects in Bangkok.

Floating market and river Kwai

(8h)

Enjoy shopping in the Bangkok area - the authentic, Thailand's largest floating market Damnoen Saduak . The entire marketplace is located on a 32-kilometer channel connecting the rivers: Tacheen and Mae Klong . It is the remains of a nineteenth-century canal system in the Bangkok area, which lost its significance after the expansion of roads and was buried in many places.

 

There will be a cruise among sampans , i.e. traditional wooden boats - stalls, on which we will see and probably try tropical fruit , coconut ice cream or even hot snacks . With bellies full of delicacies and backpacks full of souvenirs, we will see the most famous bridge of Thailand located on the Kwai river, made famous by the movie titled "Bridge on the Kwai River ". The truth is that for the needs of the film another wooden bridge was built, in Sri Lanka , but its plot refers to the true story associated with the real one we will walk on.

 

During World War II, these areas were occupied by the Japanese, who decided to build an over 400-kilometer rail route from Burma to Bangkok . About 250,000 people were "employed" for this murderous job. prisoners, of which over 100,000 died and that's why this line was called the Death Railway .

 

In addition to the famous bridge, we will also see other objects related to this route, i.e. the wooden Tam Krasae Viaduct and caves in which the prisoners who built it lived in terrible conditions. By bus we will return to your hotel in Bangkok.

Kanchanaburi

Czas: 2 dni

During a two-day trip to the Kanchanaburi region, we can fully experience the advantages of this place. It is a version of the trip extended by another day and additional attractions Floating market and the Kwai River.

From here, we go to the marina and sail on the Kwai River to a hotel on a raft . Here, in the heart of the jungle and with its sounds we will have dinner. The whole stay at the hotel will be made more pleasant by the murmur of the flowing river and the glow of kerosene lamps, because this place is devoid of electricity . After dinner, we will watch the traditional dance of the Mons ethnic group , which they brought in II BC. Buddhism in modern-day Thailand. In the morning after breakfast we will see the village of this people and we will return by boat to the marina.

 

There will be a bus waiting for us, which will take us to the Yerevan National Park, known mainly for the beautiful waterfalls . Each cascade is different, and the path will lead us between them to the very top. Nothing stands in the way of fulfilling your dreams about a film jump into the water, swimming in a floodplain or feeling the strength of a waterfall falling on your back!

 

Refreshed, we return to Bangkok, but on the way we will allow you to visit the Elephant Camp , where we can feed the elephants. Staying there is optional and extra paid, but to be in Thailand and not have contact with elephants ...? In Thai culture, elephants have long been working animals - like our horses.

 

However, it is very important to consciously choose sanctuaries of wild animals, because the growing demand in tourism for contact with these giants causes that many people try to tame them quickly, and this is simply related to the violence we are against.

 

However, we are still returning to the hotel in Bangkok, unless someone rinses the elephant in your pocket... :)
