The best time to see old Bangkok is in the evening, when the city cools down and there are fewer crowds of tourists wandering around. Your first stop is the Pak Klong Talad Flower Market, the biggest wholesale and retail-fresh flower market in Bangkok. Then, continue to Wat Kalaya which was constructed in1825 by a wealthy Thai-Chinese family. At this place, discover the beautiful seated Buddha enshrined inside the main chapel, which shows the mixed cultures of Thai and foreign influences in architecture and art. Continue your way to Wat Arun, known as the temple of dawn. Walk up to the top to savor the view of the mighty Chao Phraya river and learn the history of these top sightseeing spots of Bangkok. Last but not least, stop at the bar to enjoy a view of Bangkok and Wat Arun from the other side of the river bank against the sunset.

The Guide was super kind, we were the only ones who booked this tour on that day so it was very private. At the end she took us up to a hidden roof top bar, which we‘d never have explored without her because it‘s so in between local hotspots. The rooftop was an absolutely secret tip with an amazing view and it was just perfect to fullfill our trip. We would highly recomend!

Very informative overview and exactly the right length if you don't want to overdo it in the heat. Boat trip and TukTuk included, a Buddhist and a Hindu temple in comparison and the wonderful ending on the roof terrace, great! Alice, my guide, did a great job and I had a fantastic time.
