Oceania Exclusive Tour

For those travelers who prefer an added measure of intimacy and flexibility, we are pleased to offer our new Oceania Exclusive tours. With a minimum of 10 guests and a maximum capacity of just 16 guests, each tour benefits from a higher level of personal attention and the added flexibility and agility that come from traveling in a small group.

Oceania Exclusive tours are available for a specially selected number of tours in almost every port we visit, in every corner of the world.

Bangkok's less visited sites and hidden treasures are highlighted on this thoroughly enjoyable tour. Travel from the pier through the city's vibrant streets to your first stop, the amazing Vimanmek Mansion, the world's largest golden teakwood mansion. Built as a royal residence in 1900 under the direction of King Rama V, the mansion was only used for a few years before it fell into disuse. Surrounded by peaceful gardens and numerous Thai-style pavilions, the mansion was rediscovered in the early 1980s and transformed into a museum, commemorating King Rama V and serving as a showcase of the Thai national heritage. The vast compound includes more than 20 restored structures of the old Dusit Palace, displaying everything from ancient artifacts of Thailand's pre-history to modern-day photographs donated by the King. Following a fascinating guided tour of the mansion, you'll re-board your coach and drive to a local restaurant where a delightful Thai cooking demonstration awaits and a delicious buffet lunch.

Your afternoon begins with a visit to Jim Thompson's House, the residence of the legendary American adventurer, entrepreneur and art collector. A rambling collection of six traditional teak houses joined together, the house displays beautifully carved walls, stunning Thai paintings and rare Thai artifacts collected by the man who resurrected the Thai silk industry. Before returning to the pier, a stop is made so that you can take time to shop for local souvenirs, including silk, jewelry and Thai handicrafts.

Comfortable, flat-heeled, closed-toe walking shoes are recommended. Suitable attire is required for the Vimanmek Mansion Museum visit. Shorts, culottes, tight trousers and leggings are not permitted.
