  • Overview & Itinerary

    Overview

    The Anantara Song (renamed from Manohra Song), dubbed "The Orient Express of the River", is a 20- meter, 50-year-old authentic river rice barge that has been lovingly restored and converted into an ultra-deluxe river cruiser. Built upon the original 100-year-old, solid teak hull, the Anantara Song features four air-conditioned bedrooms with queen-size bed, en suite bathrooms, an expansive saloon living and dining area with bar, plus an ample forward sun-deck lounging area. Interior details features warm Teak, Padua and Mahogany woods throughout, custom-designed furniture covered with colorful silks and cottons, Oriental rugs, Thai and Southeast Asian art, sculpture and artifacts and Thai art-a marriage of exquisite styles past and present.

    Itinerary

    Day 1: Bangkok – Ko Kret – Wat Bang Na:

    Pick up from Bangkok hotel to board on The Anantara Song which departs from the Bangkok Marriott Resort & Spa at 10.00 hrs. Cruise leisurely along the fabled Chao Phya River. Visit the Temple of Dawn or Wat Arun, one of the most remarkable temples in Thailand, and the Royal Barge Museum.

    Enjoy Thai cuisine prepared by your personal on-board chefs while passing the island of Koh Kret, an island that is populated by the Mon people, one of Thailand's many ethnic minority groups. Relaxing on board before visiting a temple with a chance to feed the fish – a simple way to gain good luck. Arrive at Wat Bang Na in late afternoon.

    Time at leisure, then a dinner of Thai traditional dishes will be served. After dinner, relax on deck with a glass of wine before retiring to your cabin for the first night on the river.

    Day 2: Wat Bang Na – Ayuthaya – Bang Pa In:

    An early start to make merit with the monks of Wat Bang Na then tour the temple. Your continental breakfast will be served while cruising up the river through the Thai countryside. Recline on a deck and watch the river life float past.

    After a light Italian lunch, we arrive at Wat Phanancheng. Then transfer to a limousine to Ayutthaya, a UNESCO World Heritage site.

    Spend your afternoon exploring Ayutthaya with an expert guide. Also a chance to explore some ruins from the back of an elephant.

    Drive to Bang Pa In to rejoin the Anantara Song. Relax in your private en-suite cabin before enjoying an Ayutthaya-inspired Thai dinner.

    Day 3: Bang Pa In - Bangkok:

    Wake up to the taste of a full English breakfast, freshly prepared from our floating kitchen. Visit to Wat Nivat and Bang Pa In, the former summer residence of Thai kings. Then cruise downriver to Bang Sai Royal Folk Arts and Crafts Center for a visit.

    After a short guided tour, we cruise back to Bangkok. Light Thai lunch and afternoon tea on the way.

    Around 18.30 hrs we arrive at Bangkok Marriott Resort & Spa and transfer to your Bangkok hotel.
