This tour is a fantastic way to start exploring Bangkok by visiting this huge city’s true heart and soul! During this one-day trip you will be collected from your hotel in Bangkok and escorted to your first visit of the tour which is the most important temple and palace complex in the city, 'The Grand Palace'. This remarkable and sprawling structure was constructed as the main royal residence and several additions have been completed over the years including the breathtaking Wat Prah Kaew temple, which houses the iconic Emerald Buddha, a famous Buddha image carved from only one piece of jade! After your Grand Palace visit, we will proceed to the adjacent Wat Po, known through out Thailand for its Thai massage school as well as its immense reclining Buddha. We will break for lunch before resuming the tour and exploring some of Bangkok’s notorious waterways; starting with the mighty Chao Phraya River. We will reach the docks and board a long tail boat that will give you a scenic ride along the Chao Phraya. From this vantage point we will experience the river life of Bangkok and see the city from a completely different perspective. At one point, your boat will leave the Chao Phraya and travel through some of the backwater narrow canals in Thonburi. You will witness a more sedate and traditional lifestyle still persisting away from the hustle and bustle of Bangkok.
After returning to the docks and disembarking the long tail boat, we will board a river ferry and cross the Chao Phraya to reach Wat Arun, one of Thailand’s most iconic temples. Get close to this magnificent structure and even climb part way up the stupa and take in the panoramic view over the surrounding area and the Chao Phraya. The final destination of the tour will be the hectic district of Yaworat; you will visit Bangkok’s China Town by foot and see Wat Traimit which features a solid gold Buddha. After the tour, you will be driven back to your hotel in Bangkok.
