Visit the serene temple complex of Wat Phra Kaew (Temple of the Emerald Buddha) and the Royal Palace. The Emerald Buddha is the National sanctuary of the country, where the devotion is closely associated with the welfare of the Royal family and nation. The jade statue has a set of three robes and three crowns according to the seasons. (Remark: Dress code applies) On the west bank of the Chao Praya River lays a part of town called Thonburi. Situated on the right side of the river, progress has arrived here with little impact. Get a little feeling for life in Bangkok at the beginning of the 20th century, when it was also called "Venice of the East". Wooden houses, built on stilts to stand through the high tides of the late rainy season; places, only accessible by boat; children using the river as a large playground - life in Thonburi has not changed much since its beginnings. Passing by boat along the canals gives you a firsthand impression of the scenic life along Bangkok's waterways. En route we stop at Bangkok's best-known landmark, the enchanting Wat Arun (Temple of Dawn). Take the public express boat to Saphan Taksin BTS station.
