Full description

With an action-packed itinerary in store, the tour will start with swinging by a few of Bangkok’s most-loved attractions. These include the Grand Palace and Wat Phra Kaew, also known as the Temple of the Emerald Buddha because of the enormous statue inside. Stroll around the old city of Bangkok. The only place to rival it is your first stop, Wat Pho. This ancient temple is home to over 1,000 Buddha statues, one of which measures more than 150 feet in length. Next, see the sights along the Chao Phraya River on a traditional riverboat. We’ll explore the bejeweled Wat Arun (Temple of Dawn). This 300-year-old temple is known for its enormous white chedi inlaid with thousands of colorful mosaic pieces. Located at the banks of the Chao Phraya River, this temple is a magnificent landmark seen around the city. Cross the river via the traditional boat again and walk to Pak Klong Talad, the city’s largest flower market overflowing with garlands, bouquets, pot plants, and fresh fruit. Whether you browse or pick up some fresh flowers to decorate your hotel room, this unique spot is a hidden gem in the capital. For the final treat of the tour, we will ride a tuk-tuk and go to Bangkok Chinatown. This area is famous for its bustling atmosphere and foodie haunts. Feel free to grab a bite to eat or simply explore the area.

Our guide Jacky was fantastic! He was very accommodating/ friendly and seamlessly coordinated despite some of folks running late. He knew a lot of the history/ fun facts of the sites we visited. This tour was a great way to spend some quality family time and visit various sites in a short amount of time.

What can I say about this excursion except that it was just perfect for us. Niki is a very knowledgeable and personable guide. He explained to us in great detail all the places we visited and a lot of history and stories of Thailand. Speaks excellent and understandable English. The tour starts from the Royal Palace which is not visited, but instead both Wat Pho and the Wat Arun temple better known as the temple of dawn are visited. Niki will offer you water to refresh you and also guides you to discover the flower market and ChinaTown after tuc tuc the journey from the flower market to ChinaTown. My husband and I are vegans and Niki has managed to find us a characteristic place where we can dine and feel good. a tour that I recommend to everyone and that really leaves you with a beautiful memory in your heart.

Wat pho and war arun spectacular!!! But you don't see the great palace... it closes at 3pm so you don't go in to see it, you see it from the outside and with the wall that it has you don't see anything at all. That part is cheating. Otherwise all ok.
