Spend an exciting day exploring Bangkok's famous and renowned riverfront, and discover the cultural heart of Thailand. On the way, we will explore the finest and most important Thai cultural relics and temples.
We will start off the trip with a visit to the Tha Tien district, which was the historic quarter for foreign envoys, before visiting the Grand Palace. Inside its imposing 61-acre complex, you'll encounter what is undoubtedly one of the wonders of the world, the Temple of the Emerald Buddha (Wat Phra Kaew).
Next, Wat Pho is Bangkok's oldest and largest temple, featuring the largest reclining Buddha statue and the Chedi of the Kings.
We will also visit Wat Traimit, which houses a striking 3-metre tall Golden Buddha image - a gleaming, 5-ton figure of solid gold, before capping off a trip to Bangkok's Chinatown, a mecca for food lovers.
We will also pass by the scenic hallmark of Wat Arun, on the banks of the Chao Phraya river, a wonderful place to watch the sunset.
Depending on your preference we can add more "off-the-beaten path" destinations and will commute like a local, whether it's by local ferry, tuk-tuk, songthaew, BTS, or taxi, which means the tour can be adventurous as you like it!
