Bangkok is the capital and largest city in Thailand. It began as a small trading center on the west bank of the Chao Phraya River serving the Ayutthaya Kingdom, the precursor of modern Thailand which existed from 1350 to 1767. The city has vastly modernized and undergone numerous changes, including the introduction of transportation and utility infrastructure in the reigns of King Mongkut and King Chulalongkorn, and quickly developed into the economic centre of Thailand.

  • Tai Chi At Viharn Sien Park

    Visit a serene urban park to practice the slow, fluid movements of tai chi, an ancient form of exercise with health benefits that may include improving strength, flexibility and balance.

    After departing from the pier, you will enjoy a wonderfully scenic drive around the Gulf of Thailand to the city of Pattaya, where you will find the urban oasis Viharn Sien Park. The park stands in the shadow of the majestic temple Viharn Sien, an architectural masterpiece with a museum full of rare Thai and Chinese artifacts.

    Your tai chi master will lead you through a number of rhythmic movements that are easy on the joints and wonderfully meditative. The master will choose a type of traditional tai chi that suits your group. It may include yang moves, gentler wu moves, or chih moves, in which less weight is transferred from one leg to the other.

  • Reflexologist On Rice Barge

    Indulge in reflexology, a foot therapy thought to enhance relaxation and reduce pain, while cruising Bangkok’s central river on an historical, wooden rice barge.

    After departing from the pier, you will settle in for an immensely scenic drive around the Gulf of Thailand to River City, a premier arts and antiques hub on Bangkok’s Chao Phraya River. You will then board a wooden barge, a vessel originally designed with a deep bottom to store an abundance of goods such as rice. Today, traditional rice barges are often used for cruises, as they are remarkably comfortable, stable and partially open for excellent sightseeing.

    As you sail the calm waters of the so-called River of Kings, you will hear about Bangkok’s founding, its “Venice of the East” nickname and the importance of the city’s intertwined canals and rivers. Along the way, you will pass numerous landmarks such as Wat Arun, the glorious Temple of the Dawn, a 270-foot tall structure covered with porcelain mosaics that beautifully reflect the rays of the sun.

    To enhance your cultural immersion, a reflexologist will gently apply pressure to your feet, a therapy that may improve relaxation and sleep while reducing pain and anxiety. The reflexologist will follow a foot chart while applying pressure to areas of the feet, as it is thought these areas correspond to certain organs and body systems.

    Following the cruise, you will enjoy lunch at a restaurant in Bangkok and then retrace your route back to Laem Chang.
