Bangkok - Strengthening Ties
Welcome to Bangkok, the capital of Thailand and the beginning of your luxurious family vacation. The city has become one of the most well-known metropolis’s in the world, where the culture and history of the country is alive and well beneath the fabulous high-rises that decorate the skyline. Secret niches are what make Bangkok such a diverse and joyous city to explore, where the fresh food reaches out of cafes, jovial people stroll the walkways, and the fun of the city never seems to stop. Whether traversing the shops on Sukhumvit Road or relaxing in the hidden neighborhood of Banglampoo, there is always more to see.
You are taken to your sensational hotel by a private transfer, allowing you to settle into the hustle of the metropolis before embarking on your first experience of the city. Meet your guide before arriving at the fabulous Erawan Shrine. The Brahman shrine was erected in the 1950s where a hotel was once supposed to have also been constructed. The crowds that comes to pay respects to the shrine is endless, bringing people from around the world all waiting to see the gilded gods, including Than Tao Mahaprom, whose four faces represent, mercy, kindness, sympathy, and impartiality. Against the backdrop of colorful and glistening textiles, the idol continues to shine. The bright yellow flowers are offerings from people paying their respects. It not only gives a vibrant hue to the already vivacious shrine, but adds a floral aroma to the air.

Your journey begins with your arrival in Bangkok, Thailand. The metropolis contains blissful pockets of serenity beside the rushing streets of the modern world. After you settle into your luxurious accommodation, where your children will be awed at the comforts, you will venture out on a guided tour to witness the dedicated beauty of Bangkok first-hand. The Erawan Shrine is a wonderful introduction to the blissful colors and aromas of the city, where people gather to offer alms to the Brahman memorial in the heart of the metropolis. The next day you will board a long-tail boat on the Chao Phraya River and cruise to the Grand Palace complex, home to the Royal Palace and a collection of temples housing remarkable Buddha images, each intricately carved in a unique way.
Your vacation continues with a visit to the Floating Markings outside of the city center. The boats and people linger on the waterway selling goods in the traditional marketplace that once connected the old kingdom. Outside of Bangkok you will come to Ayutthaya to visit the ruins of an empire’s capital that was overtaken by the Burmese in the 18th century. Once you come to Kanchanaburi the calm city sits along the riverbanks in a quiet whisper. The history of the city can be seen in the movie, “Bridge Over River Kwai,” and in the museum that has captured the stories of World War II. Your time in Thailand will come to an end too soon, but your time in Thailand as a family will always be remembered.
