Description

Jump on a tuk-tuk for a rambling adventure through Bangkok. Call into Wat Pho, weave through the streets to Phahurat Market, and fill up on tasty snacks in Little India. Watch the city whiz by winding up to Wat Saket, then climb the 318 steps of the Golden Mount. The tuk-tuk is an exciting way to get around and discover Bangkok's buzzing backstreets.

The Tuk Tuk experience starts at the Phra Sumeru Fortress located on Phra Arthit (meaning "Sun" in Thai) Road. The fortress was built during the reign of Rama I and is the last of two remaining from the 14 originally built. With the English speaking local guide, board a Tuk Tuk, the main form of transport for our half day adventure through the streets of Bangkok. 

Climbing aboard the transport, travel past Thammasart University into Phra Chan (meaning "moon") Road to the Amulet Market, where various religious amulets, charms and traditional medicines are available. The guide will explain the significance these items play in Thai culture. Amulets in all forms are available to bring good luck or to ward off evil.

The next stop is Wat Pho (Temple of the Reclining Buddha), which derives its name from the original Wat Potaram, but in 1801 was renamed Wat Phra Chetuphon. The temple is the center of the Buddhist religion in Thailand, the country's first university and is still a center of learning for traditional Thai massage and medicines. Founded in the 17th century, Wat Pho is the oldest Buddhist temple in Bangkok. The guide will take us on a tour through the temple complex. From here, continue by Tuk Tuk to Phahurat Market, at the heart of Bangkok's little India, where all kinds of fabrics, cloths, ornaments, and accessories are sold along with stalls selling delicious Indian snacks.

Continue the journey to Woeng Nakorn Kasem in the Khlong Thom quarter, also known as the "thieves market". It is a second hand market for Thai and Chinese antiques where you will find an array of goods for sale from porcelain to furniture. The market derives its nickname from the past, where stolen goods would often turn up for sale. This is no longer the case today. The next stop is Wat Saket, location of the Golden Mount. The guide will take you through the complex and up the 318 steps to the top of the Golden Mount where you have a 360 degree view of the surrounding old Rattankosin Island. This is the last stop of the trip.
