You will discover different aspects of the daily life of the Thai people and the contrasts of Bangkok. Along the way, you stop at the majestic Wat Arun or Temple of Dawn, with his prang (Khmer style spire) inlaid with colourful pieces of china, followed with a colorful visit, walking through the Pak Klong Thalad, the biggest flower- and vegetable market in the capital and your transfer back to your hotel.
Today you spend a pleasant day in the largest zoo and amusement park opened in Thailand, which offers a variety of entertainment for the whole family. Spanning over 80 acres, Safari World contains two main attractions, the Safari Park and Marine Park. Journey through African-inspired landscapes, take a cruise in the jungle and attend a variety of animal shows. Admire the lions and tigers from your vehicle or access the Jungle Walk and the Safari Terrace for a closer look. An experience not to be missed.
Early morning, you visit the floating market of Damnoen Saduak in Ratchaburi province, about a hundred kilometers southwest of Bangkok. This small village has several floating markets, narrow networks of khlongs (channels), scattered in different areas. Trade is done by boat. Many of the market people wear the traditional costume: a straw hat and a fitted shirt, symbol of the peasant community. They sell their products to clients on the banks or on board. Overloaded sampans offer delicious fresh vegetables, fruits, spices and decorative handicrafts. After this shimmering visit, you continue to the Erawan National Park to visit its famous waterfall of 7 levels, before heading to your hotel in Kanchanaburi.
This morning you enjoy a ride in a long tail boat along the legendary River Kwai and its exceptional natural environment. You will also visit the famous River Kwai Bridge before heading to the airport of Bangkok for your flight to Chiang Mai. On arrival at the airport you are greeted by your driver who will take you to your hotel.
After breakfast you go to the beautiful mountainous region of Chiang Dao where you visit an elephant training camp. This Elephant Conservation Centre combines the cultural interest with environmental concern. Elephants have played a key role as a tool of work, during the heyday of the teak industry. That era is now over and a number of elephants have found refuge at the Centre. Visitors can admire the skill of these forest mammals and their surprising mastery in the field of painting. Not to forget the spectacle of their swim in the river. You also experience an extraordinary safari on elephant back through the jungle. Your adventure and your discovery of nature is complemented by a bamboo raft ride through the jungle. Then you have lunch at a local restaurant. You continue your day with a visit to the Tiger Kingdom. A unique opportunity in a lifetime to interact with tigers, safely surrounded by experienced trainers.
This morning you experience the Thai countryside by bicycle. We pick you up at your hotel and take you by car to a small traditional village (about 20 minutes outside of Chiang Mai.) You will cycle through some traditional villages with wooden houses on stilts, a ride through the rice fields along country roads. We will also stop in a village school. Your afternoon is free at leisure until your transfer to the airport of Chiang Mai for your flight to Bangkok and your connection to your beach extension or your flight back home. We reserve your room with a late check-out so you can freshen up before you leave.
