Good to know

Most temples & palaces in Thailand are sacred place, so you'll need to respect the strict dress code in place. You'll need to wear pants or a dress/skirt that extends well past your knees, and a top that fully covers your shoulders. (No shorts, mini-skirts, short skirts, tight fitting trousers, tights, see-through shirts, culottes, or quarter-length trousers, sleeveless shirts, or vests and sandals (without ankle or heel straps), etc.

The Grand Palace does offer a clothes rental service in which you can borrow some stylish trousers and/or tops for a refundable 200 baht deposit from an office near the entrance. Hang onto your claim ticket, however, as you will need it to get that deposit back.

The heat in Bangkok is no joke and, inside the Grand Palace grounds, you'll find it almost unbearable. You absolutely must take a hat or even an umbrella with you, to shield you  (and your kids) from the sun. We also strongly recommend packing on sunscreen and wearing&

Day 3 - River Kwai & Death Railway

Day 4 - As a Volunteer and Have Close Contact with Thai Elephants!

Today you will head to Elephants world. Founded in 2008, Elephants World is a non-profit organization that functions as a "retirement home" for elephants that have been working for humans before-either in the logging industry or entertaining tourists at camps and circuses or begging in the street of big cities. At ElephantsWorld they don't have to work anymore- now WE work for them. The centre's aim is to give the elephants a place where they can enjoy themselves in their own natural environment. The conservation camp is located in peaceful natural surroundings. Prepare food for elephants, feed them, wash them- have really close contact to Thai elephants and you can be a part of it!

We will pick you up at your hotel. Your daily program here includes meeting and feeding the elephants, observing the elephants bathing, cleaning fruit/vegetables, and preparing and cooking sticky rice for old elephants. Then have a rest and a buffet lunch. In the afternoon, gather and plant food for the
 elephants. e.g banana trees, sugar
cane, banana grass or preparing fruit baskets, etc, feeding sticky rice balls to the old elephants and then taking them to the river for a
bath and swimming with them. After the tour, return to your hotel.
