Product Description

Day 1 Bangkok – Arrival
For many travellers, Thailand is the perfect gateway to Southeast Asia and its exotic delights. Straddling the great Chao Phraya River, 12 miles upstream from the Gulf of Thailand, Bangkok is an exuberant and exhilarating metropolis of seven million people. Founded by Rama I in 1782, it is one of the world’s most exciting cities, highly regarded for its trendy nightclubs, cosmopolitan dining scene, and its markets, magnificent temples and palaces, offering something to everyone.

Arrive at Bangkok Suvarnabhumi airport where you will be met and greeted by your guide, waiting for you at the exit gate with a signboard. You will be transferred to your hotel for check-in. The rest of the day will be free: you can enjoy the facilities of your hotel, explore the surroundings or rest at leisure.
