Full description
Start your tour with a visit to the Emerald Buddha Temple. Pass by the amulet market, one of the most famous historical community markets of Rattanakosin Island. Discover the first stop of Wat Phra Kaew, regarded as the most sacred Buddhist temple in Thailand.

Explore the Grand Palace, the official residence of the Kings of Thailand, now used for official events. Pass Tha Thien Market, a cultural food market. Visit the Temple of the Reclining Buddha, Wat Pho, considered the earliest center for medical public education, recognized by UNESCO in its Memory of the World Programme. Learn about the history of the temple from your guide. 

Rest and try Bangkok's local street food in Tha Tien. Sample Thai street food for a taste of Thai cooking traditions. Continue your journey to Wat Arun (the Temple of Dawn), one of Bangkok’s most famous landmarks known for its giant tower, standing 70 meters high. 

Take a speedboat to Thonburi, the former capital of Thailand, less developed than the other side of the river. Many of the traditional small waterways, khlongs, still exist there.
