Up in the Air Life proudly presents a cultural experience during New Years Eve in the “Land of Smiles”. Explore Bangkok on a 7 day adventure as we enjoy the best that Thailand has to offer from the historical temples, rooftop dining, and amazing food. From the famous Leaning Buddha at Wat Po to the ruins at Ayutthaya learn about Thai culture and enjoy great food during the rooftop dining experiences.
Arrive in Bangkok today. Welcome to Thailand! Enjoy the beautiful Amari Hotel and check out the pool on the 8th floor! Rest up! Tonight is the Welcome Dinner where we will enjoy Traditional Thai dining and cocktails and get to know one another.
It’s our first full day in Thailand. Can we get a soul clap?! Today we will take you to Wat Po, founded in the 17th century and the oldest temple in Bangkok. This temple is also home of the amazing Reclining Buddha, one of the largest in the world; whose face depicts the attainment of Nirvana and whose feet are inlaid with mother-of-pearl. After our visit we will head to the Grand Palace, home of the King and his court for over 150 years.
We will usher the New Year at our hotel’s New Year’s Eve Rooftop Glitz & Glamour celebration that includes a lavish buffet of fresh seafood, traditional festive roasts, and a wide assortment of international favorites.
Today is a rest day for the NYE turn up! Get rest, massages, and enjoy the pool.
Today we’ll enjoy a traditional Thai cooking class. The sounds, sights, smells and tastes found in the typical Thai market are emblematic of everyday life in Thailand, and they shape the contours of Thai cuisine.To fully understandand appreciate Thai cuisine it’s important to become familiar with the various raw ingredients in their natural state, to observe Thai people relating to them in a market setting,and to study and practice traditional Thai methods of food preparation.
This means doing a little more work than one may used to in Western countries, or even in modern Thailand, where it’s now relatively easy to find modern supermarkets complete with ready-to-use curry pastes and other ingredients. We believe that the total experience we provide creates greater appreciation of both our people and food. Click on a Course to view activities, preparations, dishes, and days taught.
Enjoy an evening on your own after the class.
Today we are off to explore Ayutthaya and can assist you with booking this comprehensive day tour. The ancient city of Ayutthaya. This city was founded in 1350 as the capital of Siam. Ayutthaya was one of the largest ancient cities having as much as a million inhabitants making it one of the largest cities in the world in the 1700s. Visit some of Ayutthaya’s historical sites, such as Wat Chaiwattanaram, Wat Phra Sri Sanpetch, Wat Mongkhol Bophit, and Wat Yai Chaimongkhol.
Today you have free time to grab your souvenirs, get more massages, and explore more of Bangkok. Meet us back at the hotel for the Farewell dinner at Red Sky.
