TOUR DESCRIPTION

This is a great way to begin your exploration of Bangkok, as you will be visiting the true heart and soul of this sprawling Asian metropolis! On this tour, we will collect you at your accommodation in Bangkok and immediately bring you to the grandest temple and palace complex in the city as well as your first visit of the day, 'The Grand Palace'. This sprawling and extraordinary structure was designed to be the Royal Family’s main residence and it has seen several additions being incorporated over the years. One notable addition is the outstanding Wat Prah Kaew temple, which is the home of the iconic Emerald Buddha, a remarkable Buddha image made from only one piece of jade! After our visit to the Grand Palace visit, we will head to Wat Po, which is located nearby. This temple is known through out the country for excellent Thai massage school as well as for its huge reclining Buddha. We will have lunch in a nearby restaurant before continuing the tour. We will begin the afternoon with a visit to the mighty Chao Phraya River. After reaching the docks and boarding a long tail boat, we will start a scenic ride along this magnificent river which crosses the city. This will allow you to experience the river life and observe Bangkok from a very different perspective. Your boat will eventually leave the Chao Phraya River and you will travel through some of the narrow canals in Thonburi, a suburb of Bangkok. You will get to enjoy a more quiet and traditional way of life which is practiced today just a few kilometers from Bangkok and its incessant hustle. After our return to the docks, we will immediately step onto a river ferry and will reach Wat Arun which sits on the other side of the Chao Phraya. This is one of Thailand’s most revered temples and is even featured on its currency. You will walk on the grounds of the temple and will be able to climb up the stupa and admire the panorama over the surrounding area which gives a great view of the Chao Phraya. The last destination of the day will be the busy neighborhood of Yaworat; visit Bangkok’s infamous China Town by foot, a great opportunity to make a few purchases. We’ll also drop in Wat Traimit which houses a solid gold Buddha. Following the tour, you will be escorted back to your Bangkok accommodation.
