|Half Day Grand Palace & Emerald Buddha||Day #4||01 Jul 2013 - 30 Jun 2015||$37|
Half day morning tour of Wat Phra Kaew, the Temple of the Emerald Buddha, and the adjoining Grand Palace. Together they form what is perhaps the greatest spectacle for the visitor to Bangkok. Wat Phra Kaew consists of over 100 brightly colored building, golden spires and glittering mosaics, and dates back to 1782, when Bangkok was founded. From Wat Phra Kaew head to the Grand Palace. Despite the proximity of the two, there's a distinct contrast in style between the very Thai Wat Phra Kaew and the more European-inspired designs of the Grand Palace. The Grand Palace is used only for occasional ceremonial purposes and is no longer the royal residence.
|Siam Niramit Show & Dinner||Day #4||01 Jul 2013 - 30 Jun 2015||$59|
Enjoy a delightful Buffet Dinner at the Siam Niramit Restaurant before attending this evening's stunning performance of "Journey to the Enchanted Kingdom" of Siam. This $40 million production, with over 150 performers, explores the Kingdom of Siam's history and culture, with scenes highlighting the Ancient Kingdom of Lanna, Khmer heritage, and traditions of the central plains. Then, venture into the heart of Thai mythology with scenes of Fiery Hell, the mystical Himapaan Forest, and Blissful Heaven. Lastly, enjoy a montage of joyous celebrations honoring the Buddhist tradition.
|Full Day Hellfire Pass & Death Railway with lunch||Day #6||01 Jan 2012 - 31 May 2015||$29|
Depart early in the morning from Kanchanaburi to visit Hell Fire Pass and the Death Railway. Hellfire Pass derives its name from Allied Prisoners of War ordered by the Japanese authorities to complete the bridge and rail line earlier than scheduled. All POW's were forced to work day and night in the jungle, digging through the mountain with simple tools. More than 12,000 soldiers and 80,000 Thais perished during construction. Our tour includes a boat trip on the River Kwai and ride on the Death Railway. En route we stop for lunch before returning to Kanchanaburi.
