What To Expect
See Bangkok through the lens as you explore the city with your camera and professional photographer guide. Get expert photography tips, discover fascinating places and capture the best shots of the city - from top attractions like the Chao Phraya River and Grand Palace to small markets and lesser known areas.
Start your day at the Sapan Thaksin Pier with a short walk up onto the bridge above the pier to capture some bird's eye shots of Bangkok's architecture and busy Chao Praya River before taking the "River Express" - the start of Bangkok's only way to avoid the traffic. Spend some time admiring the sights and taking photographs of life and architecture along the river banks during the boat ride to Tha Phra Chang Pier and the area known as Rattanakosin Island, the historic center where most of Bangkok's top attractions are located.
From the boat, continue on by foot towards the main road facing Bangkok's busiest tourist spot: The Grand Palace. Your guide will take you away from the tourist crowds and into one of the fascinating parts of the city bustling with locals. Discover traditional shop houses, 3 universities, the amulet market (one of Bangkok's most interesting markets) and street food everywhere! Walk down the roads and small alleyways, get a glimpse of everyday local life and see Wat Mahathat's Buddhist university/monastery before stopping for a cool drink.
Proceed to Tha Thien Pier and cross the river to Wat Arun, the Temple of Dawn, to get a different view of Rattanakosin and see some different architecture. Afterwards, cross back over to Tha Thien and browse through a couple of small markets before visiting Wat Pho, the Temple of the Reclining Buddha.
Take a break for coffee or cool drink at a lovely riverside cafe before heading off to Pak Khlong Talat Flower and Vegetable Market, one of the oldest food markets in Bangkok. Afterwards, travel by road on a tuk tuk going to the Golden Mount (Wat Saket), a temple perched on Bangkok's highest hill. Enjoy the view and take photos of old and new Bangkok from up the hill before continuing on to walk through some of the most interesting streets in Bangkok on the way to "Sao Tching Chaa*" (Giant Swing / Sao Ching-Cha), an area known for it's Buddha statue workshops and artisans.
End the the tour with a tuk tuk ride back to Tha Phra Chang Pier next to the Grand Palace.
