Full description
Visit Bangkok's most unique temples including Wat Trimitr, Wat Pho, and Benjamaborpitr on a private guided tour with multiple language options. 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. Finally, stop at Wat Benjamaborpitr, also called the White Marble Temple and one of the finest examples of Thai architecture that is noted for its elegant white marble façade imported from Italy. Step inside the main chapel to see the country’s most captivating Buddha’s image.

The three temples we visited were very impressive and absolutely worth seeing. The guide spoke German very well and gave us a great insight into Bangkok. One star off for the last stop. We stopped at a jewelry factory and were herded through the showroom. gem sale. I just don't like that

Our tour guide Mina is very nice and we learned a lot about different kinds of buddha origin. Glad we took the tour.
