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.

Baan Mai Riverside Market

Baan Mai Riverside Market has been a local market of Chachoengsao since the reign of King Rama V of Rattanakosin. The market has been run for over 100 years. Previously, Thai people use boat ride as the main transportation. This is because the center of the community and the market are mostly the area along the river. Chachoengsao people count Bang Pakong river as the main river that has a long history related with local’s Chachoengsao. The river flows from Chanchoengsao through Prajeenburi River with distance of 230 kilometers. So, it can be said that the main venue for trading and exchanging materials is the area along Bang Pakong River. In the globalization world, the new technology made the transportation easier for people nowadays, while, it lessens the importance of traveling by boats. Thus, Chachoengsao could not run away from this cycle as well. The town has been changed a lot as well as there are new markets opening in town. The boat ride was replaced by the car ride and the market area was abandoned. Some of the buildings still got tenants living to maintain and keep the beautiful mixed cultures between Thai and Chinese cultures. Later, when tourism became the main factor that boosts national economy, people yearn for nostalgia. And, this is an inspiration to renovate and reconstruct the market once again. The Baan Mai Market conservative association was initiated in this period and the main duty of this association is to take care of more than 120 shops at the market under the Baan Mai development project. The project is as well under the office of Tourism and Sports: Chachoengsao.  Besides, the Tourism Authority of Thailand also cooperated in supporting the project by publicizing the scheme and setting up the official opening ceremony on October 23rd, 2004.

So, the junction was made up and later become the center of trading among the community. Earlier, the area was mostly occupied by Chinese or Thai-Chinese merchant. But, after the time passing by, the market was gradual abandoned. This is why Nuang Khet municipality needed to initiate the renovation project for this market. The purpose of the project is to make sure locals can earn more to sustain their life as well as to conserve a good old Thai culture. The highlight of the market any visitors will be impressed is the fact that you will be encounter with a retro atmosphere and, at the same time, can enjoy the nature and appreciate the prosperity of the past.
