As many cities in Asia are, Bangkok is a contrast of old and new. Most come to see the past, the beautiful temples and river life, much the same as they started. But this city is also one of progress, with a stellar transportation system, energetic cultural scene and beautiful new buildings. To really experience Bangkok today, it is necessary to forget all expectations and take this city as it comes.

After a short meeting with your guide, you will set out to visit the highlights of the city. The first method of transportation will depend on the location of your hotel and will be by Skytrain, Chao Praya River Express or a taxi. Best to see the Grand Palace including the Temple of the Emerald Buddha first if possible to avoid crowds. nown also as Wat Phra Kaey, this is a fairy-tale compound includes the former residence of the Thai monarch and a large emerald in the shape of Buddha.

This location proves best for the next major attraction, one unique to Bangkok, a klong canal tour. Along the river and canals stemming from the Chao Phraya River you will get a view of river life like no other. Homes, trading houses and temples remain oriented towards life on the water and this boat trip will provide a fascinating glimpse into the past when Thais considered themselves water lords.

One unforgettable site is the Reclining Buddha, known as Wat Pho. This compound incorporates the impressive Buddha, 46 meters long and 15 meters high, illustrating the passing of the Buddha into nirvana. It also is the national headquarters for the taching and preservation of traditional Thai medicine, including massage, which makes for a second interesting stop.

Finally, the city of flower markets requires you to visit one during your stay. The market we have chosen is the largest depot for wholesale flowers. Whether you stop first thing in the morning or late at night, deliveries will be arriving. Local snacks are a possible option here.

Time has been set aside for a local lunch, which is not included in the cost.

This full day in Bangkok will easily be a winner.

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),
