Bangkok is a city unlike any other – with tuk-tuks and people filling the streets and the smell of Pad Thai around every corner, it’s the hustle-and-bustle that brings this city to life. Marvel at gorgeous historic sites as you weave your way through the narrow city streets. On this 3 day/2 night post-trip extension, sail up the Chao Phraya River, experience a traditional “floating market,” travel by train and boat to the majestic Wat Pho and Grand Palace, and dive deep into the local culture with a tour of a family-run workshop producing monks’ alms bowls.
