Cruise to Bangkok (Laemchabang), Thailand

In Bangkok, the old meets the new: Skyscrapers contrast ornate Thai temples, high-end cocktail bars lie around the corner from bustling stalls of street-food vendors, and tuk tuk rickshaws pedal beside cars on the busy streets. Cruise to Bangkok to explore the city's green space at Lumpini Park, where you can take a stroll alongside the early-morning tai chi practitioners. Encounter the culture's deep roots at the Bangkok National Museum, home to the country's largest collection of Thai artifacts, including Khon masks and traditional armaments. Then, head to Wat Pho to see the 15-meter-tall, 46-meter-long, gold-leaf-covered statue of the Reclining Buddha. Or behold the towering spires and porcelain flower patterns of 19th-century Wat Arun, or Temple of the Dawn.
