Chiang Mai is a city in mountainous northern Thailand. Founded in 1296, it was capital of the independent Lanna Kingdom until 1558. Its Old City area still retains vestiges of walls and moats from its history as a cultural and religious center. It’s also home to hundreds of elaborate Buddhist temples, including 14th-century Wat Phra Singh and 15th-century Wat Chedi Luang, adorned with carved serpents.
Overnight in Chang Mai.
Breakfast at the hotel. This tour takes you on an unforgettable drive through many different parts of the city, passing markets, residential areas, foreign consulates and establishments, government buildings and Ta-Pae, Chiang Mai's main street. Visit four of the most important temples: Wat Chiang Man (AD 1297), the oldest temple within the city walls; Wat Chedi Luang (AD 1411), where the Emerald Buddha was once enshrined; Wat Pra Singh (AD 1345), housing a very sacred 1,500-year-old Buddha image; and Wat Suan Dok (AD 1371), where the ashes of Chiang Mai's Royal Family are interred.

Bangkok, Thailand’s capital, is a large city known for ornate shrines and vibrant street life. The boat-filled Chao Phraya River feeds its network of canals, flowing past the Rattanakosin royal district, home to opulent Grand Palace and its sacred Wat Phra Kaew Temple. Nearby is Wat Pho Temple with an enormous reclining Buddha and, on the opposite shore, Wat Arun Temple with its steep steps and Khmer-style spire.
In the evening you can unwind and relax in this optional tour and be enchanted by the mystique of Siam as celebrated in this world-class spectacle.
Siam Niramit with Dinner and Transfer
After being picked up from your hotel, you will be transferred to Ratchada Road to see the acclaimed Siam Niramit show. Dinner is buffet style featuring highlights from the Thai kitchen. The village displays local handicrafts such as carved vegetables, cloth weaving and pottery which are also for sale. The show itself differs from the regular offerings, such as music and dance. Siam Niramit journies through Siamese history, legend, folklore and festivals using up-to-the-minute technology to deliver stunning special effects. Three acts include 'Journey Back to History' introducing the four distinct regions of Thailand and their special cultures. 'Journey Beyond Imagination' visits Buddhist earth, heaven and hell. Finally 'Journey Through Joyous Festivals' features highlights from merit-making celebrations throughout the year such as the uniquely Thai festival of Loy Krathong.

Manohra Chaophraya Dinner Cruise
Fine dining on board the most sophisticated barge to sail the Chao Phraya.
There are larger and sleeker modern yachts cruising the Chao Phraya River, but for true Siamese elegance and classic Thai cuisine, few can match the restored Rice Barges of the Manohra fleet. Formerly these vessels transported cargoes of rice harvested from the fields of the Central Plains. Following restoration they now carry diners past the illuminated landmarks near the riverside. These include the distinctive 'prang' of Wat Arun or the Temple of Dawn, the glittering rooftiles of the Grand Palace and the cable-stayed Rama VIII Bridge. Tempting dishes feature on the menu that changes every three days and may include the tongue-tingling flavour explosions of an old Thai snack known as 'Mieng Kham', Hoi Shell Yang Ta-Krai, Thod Man Pla, Yum Huah Plee, Tom Yam Goong Soup, Massaman Gae, Kra Pao Goong Lai Sue, Kai Yang Sauce Ma Kam, Ka Na Hed Hom, Khao Sam See and Dessert Ka Nom Whan, washed down with Thai
