Full description
Visit Bangkok's Wat Trimitr and Wat Pho temples as well as the Royal Grand Palace on a private guide tour with multiple language options and hotel pickup service. See spectacular pagodas and golden Buddha statues while getting a deep understanding of Thai culture. After your hotel pickup, start your tour at the Wat Trimitr temple, home of the largest known solid gold Buddha image in the world. Learn about the fascinating history of the 700-year old statue that stands at 15 feet tall and weighs approximately 5.5 tons. Continue through Bangkok’s thriving Chinatown district to the grounds of the Wat Pho temple, a large and extensive monument neighboring the Grand Palace enclave. Here, discover the massive gold plated Reclining Buddha, measuring 46 meters long and 15 meters high, with beautifully inlaid mother-of-pearl soles. Considered to be one of the worlds’ most famous temples, Wat Pho is also regarded as the first center of public education and is sometimes called ‘Thailand’s first university’. Well-known for its Thai massage services within the temple walls, many come here to relax and enjoy a peaceful day. Lastly, head to the Grand Palace, which is situated close to the Chao Phraya, Bangkok’s River of Kings. Explore the public areas of Bangkok’s most popular tourist attraction. Built in 1782 by King Rama, the palace is still often used for royal ceremonies today.

Kann man machen muss man nicht. Die geführte Tour muss nicht machen. Man kann auch selber hinfahren und sich vorher ein bischen belesen. Meines Erachtens viel zu teuer.
