The Gold Rush vs Amazing Race

The Gold Rush is similar to our popular Amazing Races except this event takes participant to locations along the river and canals and off the busy roads!

The Chao Phraya river is the most important transportation artery for a network of cross-river ferries, and river taxis, which are mostly used by the long-tails boats.

There are more than 15 boat lines which operate along the rivers and canals of the Bangkok River, including numerous commuter lines.

Chao Phraya River Bangkok Boat Race Locations

This event has been tailored to give teams enough time you visit all the amazing landmarks. Some locations may be The Grande Palace, Floating Market, The Royal Barge National Museum, and the Temple of the Reclining Buddha. Of course, we throw in a little fun shopping! Teams will face a series of challenges at each of these locations and gain points based upon their success and completion of the tasks.

The Grande Palace

This palace was the official residence of the Kings of Siam since it was built back in 1782. This amazing architecture is another must-see in Bangkok.

Inside the palace is the famous ‘Wat Phra Kaew’ or the ‘Temple of the Emerald Buddha’ which is regarded by the Thais as the most important Buddhist temple in Thailand. It dates back to the 15th century AD and is carved from a single block of jade.

Temple and Palace Dress Codes

As with most temples, a strict dress code applies hence visitors must be properly dressed. No bare feet, tank tops, see-through clothes and women cannot bare shoulders. There are small vendor stalls just outside the gates which hire/loan clothes to cover up.

Wat Pho – Temple of the Reclining Buddha

Wat Pho is one of the oldest temples in Bangkok, Thailand. Located a short distance from the Grand Palace, this temple has some of the largest collections of Buddha images in Thailand, not forgetting the most famous reclining Buddha which is 46 meters long and 15 meters high. Decorated in laksana the feet of the Reclining Buddha are 5 meters long.

And if you need a little luck along your journey, purchase a bowl of coins at the entrance to the Reclining Buddha and drop them into the 108 bronze bowls along the lengths of the interior walls. This could be one of our challenges!

Transportation during the race (long-tail boats), entree fees to temples, museums etc. prize for each winning team member, consultants, MC, water, professional photographer and all materials and design..
