The Palace includes one of the most photographed buildings in the kingdom, a charming Thai pavilion built over a pond.

    Explore Bangkok's exotic sites during this memorable visit to the Grand Palace, and the city's main shopping area.


    Depart the pier for the drive to the Grand Palace, which showcases the most beautiful example of an ancient Siamese Court. Different palaces were built and named for different occasions; the Funeral Palace, Reception Palace, Throne Hall, Coronation Hall and Temple of the Emerald Buddha, perhaps the most breathtaking of them all.

    Depart the pier for the drive to Bangkok, where upon arrival you will board a boat for a scenic cruise along the canals, or klongs, of the Chao Praya River.

    Your tour along these fascinating waterways includes a stop at the beautiful Temple of Dawn, or Wat Arun, and a visit to the Royal Barge Shed, where the impressively ornate ceremonial barges are stored when not in use.


    Following your time at the Royal Barge shed, you will transfer to a local restaurant for lunch before driving back to Laem Chabang.

    Get a genuine feel for river life by exploring the Pattaya floating market, which vendors in small wooden boats supply with all sorts of local goods. The market is divided into four sections, each representing a different region of Thailand. Although just opened in 2008, the market looks much older as it was designed to replicate an ancient floating market, most of which have long been abandoned. During free time at the market, you might sample items such as dragon fruit and mangosteen—the national fruit of Thailand—and linger over a freshly prepared lunch that is characteristic of one of the four regions. With so many aromas enticingly wafting through the air, it will be hard to resist dining. But the floating market offers much more than food. You will also find unusual handicrafts, silverware, handmade bags and silk clothing. The atmosphere couldn’t be more inviting.


    HIGHLIGHTS:
    • Browse the incredible array of merchandise at the Pattaya floating market.
    • Get a sense of river life, as the locals purchase items directly from the vendors on boats.
    • Marvel at the design of the floating market, a replica of an ancient floating market.

    Experience daily life in the fertile agricultural countryside and delve into Thailand’s spiritual side by visiting the area’s most important Buddhist temple. While it will take two hours to reach Chachoengsao, it will be well worth the effort. The Bang Pakong River supplies abundant water to the area, and rice especially flourishes there. As you will discover by browsing the century-old Klong Suan Market with the locals, every imaginable type of food is available. Best of all, many vendors offer samples. For an entirely different perspective of the area, you will visit Luang Pho Sothon, a temple with a revered statue of Buddha that according to legend was found floating down the river. Chances are, you will see worshippers praying for prosperity and others leaving offerings. Women often leave boiled eggs in hopes of becoming pregnant. While wandering about the temple, be sure to notice the artwork, especially the painted murals of religious scenes.


    HIGHLIGHTS:
    • Enjoy a leisurely and immensely picturesque drive into the agricultural countryside.
    • Browse Klong Suan Market with the locals as they peruse the seemingly endless stalls.
    • Visit a beloved Buddhist temple and mingle with the worshippers and pilgrims.

    Mingle with the locals in two coastal areas known more for their signature products than their beaches and seaside attractions. You will first visit Ang Sila, an engaging city revered for its hand-carved stoneware, especially granite mortars and pestles used for grinding spices. This prized piece of kitchenware is prevalent throughout Ang Sila, which means “stone basin.” Even so, fishing is the primary industry and most of the local seafood recipes call for spices—preferably ground with a stone mortar and pestle. Sticky rice is the iconic product associated with the Chon Buri province. Served as a signature dessert known as Khao Lam, sticky rice is typically mixed with coconut milk, black beans, sugar and salt before being roasted over an open fire in a stout bamboo tube. As you will discover firsthand at the Nong Mon Market, Khao Lam is a delicious treat any time of the day.


    HIGHLIGHTS:
    • Meander through two beautiful coastal areas known for rather unusual signature products.
    • Learn why Ang Sila is revered for its stone mortars and pestles and buy one if you wish.
    • Sample the iconic sticky rice dessert long associated with Nong Mon Market.

    Experience the mystic ancient beauty, tradition and art of Thailand during this visit to the Wooden Pavilion. Head to North Pattaya to visit this pavilion also known as “The Sanctuary of Truth”. It is a mystical building constructed according to ancient Thai specifications and the largest wood-carved structure in Thailand.


    Designed as a pagoda-shaped pavilion, the building is over 340 feet tall. It is a fusion of religion, culture and art. Originally crafted entirely from Thailand's native teak, parts of the Wooden Pavilion have been replaced by the more durable redwood to withstand the ravages of the salt air. Every square inch of the building is covered with intricate and detailed wooden sculptures depicting the Ancient Vision of Earth, Ancient Knowledge and Eastern Philosophy. Once inside, you’ll have an opportunity to view the cavernous inner chapel, which reveals scenes from Chinese, Hindu and Buddhist traditions.


    After exploring the pavilion and surrounding grounds, you will drive back to the ship along the beautiful Pattaya Beach Road with a stop at a shopping store where you can browse among a range of vibrant Thai silks and souvenirs.
