Day 1 : Bangkok

The Grand Palace

Located at the heart of Bangkok, Thailand, the Grand Palace was a former residence for King Rama I to King Rama V of the Rattanakosin Kingdom. Today, the place is used for hosting royal ceremonies and welcoming the king’s guests, State guests, and other foreign dignitaries. It is also a place where remains of kings and high-ranked members of the royal family were situated before cremation. The Grand Palace is divided into two main zones, which are the Temple of the Emerald Buddha and the royal residence. The latter is divided into three major areas: the Outer Court, the Middle Court, and the Inner Court. The Outer Court starts from Wiset Chai Si Gate to Phiman Chai Si Gate and includes the inner walls of the Grand Palace. It is now the location of several state offices such as the Bureau of the Royal Household, Office of His Majesty’s Principal Private Secretary, and the Office of the Royal Institute.  The Middle Court starts from Phiman Chai Si Gate to Sanam Ratchakit Gate. The area is where significant royal ceremonies are held such as the Royal Coronation and the Royal Ceremony of Coronation Day. Situated in the Middle Court area are the Phra Maha Monthien Buildings, the Chakri Maha Prasat Buildings, the Phra Maha Prasat Buildings, and the Siwalai Gardens quarter. The Inner Court starts from Sanam Ratchakit Gate to Thaew Teng, the row houses which were formerly palace walls during the reign of King Rama I. The southern area of the Inner Court was then a female-only zone; no man except for the king was allowed to get into the area, where the queens, consorts, consort mothers, and daughters of the king lived together with many ladies-in-waiting and servants. The area no longer served as a residence nowadays. Tips •      Please dress properly in black or white to show condolence to the late King Rama IX. •      Stood inside the Grand Palace area is another Bangkok attraction called the Pavilion of Regalia, Royal Decorations and Coins, where Thai coins and regalia are on display.

Sao Chingcha

Sao Chingcha area has been the centre of Bangkok since Rattanakosin period to present. The Giant Swing or Sao Chingcha was constructed in the reign of Rama I after he had decided to extend the city from the west or Thonburi since King Taksin's time to the east. There was also a canal excavation surrounded the city. King Rama I then chose the centre of the city and made it the place for shrines, temples for Bramanism and the Giant Swing. “Sao Chingcha” or the Giant Swing has become an outstanding symbol of Bangkok until now. It is two towering red pillars standing on a huge stone at the height of 21.15 metres. The lotus-flower-shaped pedestal is white exposed aggregate concrete. On the arch of the pedestal, placed an inscribed stone telling a history of Sao Chingcha. A pair of central pillars and two pairs of stilts with capital were all made of round lathed teak tree trunks. The frame connecting both capitals were carved beautifully. They were all painted in red. It is one of the architecture built for the Swing Ceremony or Ceremony of Tri-yampawai from an ancient Hindu epic. The Giant Swing seen today is the new one which was rebuilt during 11th-13th September 2007. The new pillars were made of golden teak tree trunks from Prae. The Giant Swing  has become one of the most historically important tourist attraction in Bangkok well known among Thais and foreigners. The architectures in the area near the Giant Swing including Phra Nakorn area still remains in the style of early Rattanakosin period.

Erawan Shrine

Erawan Shrine is a Hindu shrine located in front of Grand Hyatt Erawan Hotel at the Ratchaprasong intersection on Ratchadamri Road in Lumphini Sub-district, Pathum Wan District, Bangkok. Both Thai people and foreigners like to visit this place and worship this famous holy object. A lot of group tours from many countries are arranged specifically to pay homage to Phra Phrom here. The history of this sacred shrine dated back to 1951 when Police General Phao Sriyanond assigned the establishment of Erawan Hotel at the Ratchaprasong intersection to receive foreign guests. It is said that during the first period of the establishment, there were a lot of mishaps. Later, when the construction was almost complete in the late 1956, a hotel executive of the Syndicate of Thai Hotels & Tourists Enterprises Limited, contacted Rear Admiral Luang Suvichan Paet, a head of Navy doctor and professional of sitting in meditation, to arrange the auspicious time for opening the hotel. However, Rear Admiral Luang Suvichan Paet suggested a proper oblation. In order to fix the problem, the hotel had to worship Phra Phrom to expel the obstacles and had to have the Erawan Shrine and the spirit house built in the hotel immediately after the hotel had been completely constructed. This resulted in the construction of the shrine, which was designed by Mr. Rawi Chomseri and M.L. Poom Malakul. The statue of Phra Phrom was designed and molded with gilded plaster by Mr. Jitr Pimkowit, a handicraft technician from the Fine Arts Department. Phra Phrom was then installed in front of the Erawan Hotel in November 9, 1956. Erawan Shrine at Erawan Hotel marks the first largest shrine housing Phra Phrom. According to Hindu belief, Phra Phrom is the god of builder. He has 4 faces, each of which symbolizes the 4 directions—north, south, east, and west; therefore, he can vision and protect everything in both human world and heaven. He can get rid of difficulty and obstacles and encourage fortune and success for the worshippers with respectful mind. At present, Erawan Shrine at Erawan Hotel is under the supervision of “Than Tao Mahaprom Foundation.” The tourists and those who are interested can visit and worship the sacred Erawan Shrine at Erawan Hotel everyday free of charge.

Tham Khao Luang

Petchaburi is not only a province with a lot of history that has long been reflecting local culture and lifestyle, but also has many places of worship such as temples, in particular cave temples found on mountains throughout the province.  Five kilometres away from the city centre towards the direction where Khao Wang is situated, a cave temple was built on a small hill with a height of only 92 metres. It is not that hard to get to there. The way up to the temple is not quite steep so that you can either walk or drive uphill. The cave temple is only about a hundred years old. It was built in the reign of King Chulalongkorn, who wanted to build a temple on Khao Luang Peak in honour of King Mongkut, who once visited the Tham Khao Luang Cave. King Chulalongkorn thought that the cave was fascinating with stalactites and stalagmites all over it. The cave also features a hole through which sunlight comes and gleams on stones, making the cavern colourful and allowing visitors to see all the beauty of the interior of the cave. Also, the hole permits cool air to flow into the cave, making it not humid.  King Mongkut, who saw the beauty of the cave, had 10-metre long concrete stairs built from the foot of the mountain into the cave and also got the ancient Buddha images which were hosted in the cave before the Rattanakosin Period renovated. It is assumed that the statues, the six-metre long reclining Buddha and the large Buddha image in subduing Mara position, for example, were brought from somewhere else and hosted here by pilgrims. During his reign, King Chulalongkorn paid a visit to Petchaburi and wanted to construct a proper temple in the Tham Khao Luang cave in honour of his father, King Mongkut. He had new Buddha images made so as to host them in the cavern with the ancient ones. He also had the first five kings of the Chakri Dynasty’s coats of arms inscribed at the base of one of the newer Buddha statues. Wat Tham Khao Luang underwent renovations and improvements. Nowadays, tourist guides are provided by the temple and shops are available to visitors. In addition, there are lots of monkeys living in the temple.

Wat Phra Phut Saiyat

WatPhraPhutSaiyat is located to the southeast of Khao Wang (PhraNakornKhiri) on Khiri Rat Ya Road, KlongKra Chang Sub District, Mueng District, Petchaburi Province. Though the period of construction is unknown, it is assumed that the ancient temple dated back up to the era of Ayutthaya. WatPhraPhutSaiyat is home to an image of 400-year-old reclining Buddha. The Buddha is a brick-and-cement work of 43 metres long and 15 metres high from head to the resting platform.It is the fourth largest reclining Buddha image in Thailand.   Being built by the Mon, ‘Phra Norn’ at WatPhraPhutSaiyat was originally situated outdoor. After the period of Ayutthaya, the temple was abandoned until the reign of Rama VI. The king visited PhraNakornKhiri (Khao Wang) in Petchaburi Province and saw that the Buddha image has been ruined by the weather until it was all worn out, so he had tin roof built as a shelter for the statue. Later, King Rama V had the roof renovated. The Buddha image was then sheltered with tile roofing and encircled by the wall as seen nowadays.  Situated in the ubosot, Phra Norn is the main Buddha image of WatPhraPhutSaiyat. It is also the patron Buddha of those born on Tuesdays. The head of the image point to the south. Inside the image are eleven cave rooms which are now closed due to lack of oxygen inside. Another highlight of the image is the two lotus-shape pillows supporting the Buddha’s head. The temple has been under the care of the Fine Arts Department since 1995.     WatPhraPhutSaiyat is located on Khiri Rat Ya Road, KlongKra Chang Sub District, Muang District, Petchaburi Province. The temple is open daily from 7.00 - 17.00. Admission is free of charge.  From Highway No. 4, turn left into the center of Petchaburi.

Hua Hin Night Market

It has become a so-called travelling tradition for Hua Hin visitors to enjoy the sea and other outdoor activities by day and roam Hua Hin night market by night. The walking street of Hua Hin night market is closed entirely to traffic and becomes the focal point for vending stalls, particularly consumer goods and souvenirs. Therefore, when taking a stroll through the night market and shopping some small gifts, visitors can scent the tantalizing aroma of grilled seafood. Hua Hin night market is located where Decha Nuchit Road and the well-known Phet Kasem Road cross. Even though the foods sold here can be found elsewhere, but the distinguished flavors are second to none. The market is packed with nationally recognized restaurants, including Pad Thai, oyster omelet, stewed pork shank on rice, chicken on rice, fish maw soup, noodles, made-to-order menus and fresh seafood. Furthermore, there are a vast array of snacks and desserts, for example roti, grilled squid, fish balls, pork skewers, shave ice, assorted bean in syrup, ice cream, sticky rice and mango, mango and sweetened fish sauce, and other fresh fruits. The abundant varieties of food choice make it hard to decide which one you would try first. Additionally, clothes, accessories, cassette tapes, CDs, books and lovely souvenirs can be found. Despite the tremendous number, all shops and stalls are always crowded with Thai and foreign customers – waiting for food, eating, or shopping. At a quick glance this place may seem like an ordinary night market, but once you have been here, you just cannot help but visiting it again the next time you are in Hua Hin. The warmth and the unique characteristics of Hua Hin that fill this night market make no other place comparable.  Every evening shopkeepers start setting up their stalls at around 6 and most of them are ready just before 7. At midnight when shops gradually close, it is yet likely to see crowds of people roaming Hua Hin.
