The jeweled qualities of the Emerald Buddha sparkle under the natural light. The waters of the Andaman Sea maintain a gemlike quality in their luminous color. The aromas of fragrant noodles and fresh produce provide an alluring introduction to the past and present traditions of Bangkok.

Bangkok is a city of contrast that celebrates both its forward thinking and historical atmosphere. Temples tower over cobblestone streets and tree-clad lanes. The Chao Phraya River continues to act as a historical highway, traversed by ferries, fishing boats, and travelers making their way to distant towns outside of the city. The locals believe in the spirit of sà-nùk, which means fun. That ideal permeates the city, emanating from the vibrant smiles of Bangkok residents when relaxing in a riverside café or strolling through a luxurious fashion mall in the Chidlom district.
Your private transfer meets you at the airport upon your arrival and escorts you to your lavish accommodation situated alongside the banks of the Chao Phraya River. In the evening, the city continues its energetic and jovial atmosphere. The aromas of ginger and lime intermix in the Bohemian atmosphere surrounding the JJ Green Night Market. The cultural wonders of the city are endless, and the friendly attitudes of the locals are always prevalent, welcoming you to Bangkok and making you feel at home.
