Evening Explore! Bangkok by Night
Evening Explore! Bangkok
An evening where we capture the most important sights around Ratanakosin Island by tram!
Landmarks such as the Ananta Samakorn and the Golden Mount pass by while we
include dinner at an iconic hotel in Bangkok’s historical district.
WHY THIS TOUR?
The origins of what is now called “Krung Thep” have their roots in Rattanakosin Island. Located north of famous Chinatown and snuggling against the eastern banks of the Chao Phraya River, the historical heart of Bangkok is home to unmissable landmarks such as the Grand Palace, Wat Pho and popular evening venues such as Khao San Road.
Often left aside to see the must-sees of Thailand’s capital, smaller temples, the smells of fresh flowers 24/7 and a touch of the region’s local grandeur are actually best observed when the sun has set. To add up the exploration ante, riding along all this on board a tram and ending the night with a Thai dinner shows a totally different side of Rattanakosin Island, worth taking up when in need of an evening-filling program.

The opulence of Bagan as a former empirical powerhouse still ebbs across the plains. With over 2000 temples, pagodas and stupas etched in the history books, there are little words to describe, without the excessive use of superlatives to come even close to the real deal, to get a sense of the region.
