Your guide will meet you as you disembark while your ride into Bangkok will ready you for an intense and fascinating day in this city named Number 1 in the world. As you enter the city, the traffic will amass but your driver will know the ins, outs and the shortcuts wherever possible. Even seeing the contrasts on the local roads is entertaining.

One stunning stop is the Grand Palace built in 1784. The complex is amazing, a memorable sight of Thai art and architecture. In the midst of the very bustling city, you will feel the calm and quiet of Buddhism surround you. There are 10 parts to this complex and your guide will walk and talk you through the important sites.

Moving on to the Klong tour, you will explore the 'Venice of the East' on the canals off the Chao Phraya River, where a network of waterways spread out into the countryside. Canalside life will be close at hand and often you won't know where to look first, but you can't help but enjoy taking in everything around you.

Wat Pho is the Reclining Buddha and it is here that you will become speechless. In Bangkok's oldest and largest temple is the country's stunning buddha lying on its side. You will be able to walk around the entire statue in wonderment, like everyone around you, and you will then understand the magic of this city.

Another facet of the city are the flower markets which is a favorite of many travelers. The onslaught of sights, sounds, and smells at Bangkok's biggest flower, vegetable and fruit market threatens to cause sensory overload at any time of day or night. Many of these talented people will turn everyday items into unbelievable displays of beauty. Take it all in!

The day's itinerary may be reversed based on traffic flow but sometime during the day you will enjoy a local lunch.

In Cozumel we enjoyed the snorkeling that we did off a catamaran. The staff was friendly, very professional, and helpful with my first time snorkeling daughter. Grand Cayman we went to sting ray city with a trip and snorkeling. Staff and trip was amazing, crew very helpful and fun. in Jamaica we did a Dunn's River Falls excursion and private beach. We had fun but were not impressed with the staff, and their timeliness (waited around alot),

Traveling into Russia can be nerve-wracking (and getting more so every day) -- but ShoreTrips made it easy by providing all of the paperwork and instructions, as well as organizing good guides.
