“Great experience, mostly because of the guide. We took the time to visit in depth each of the temples and the Grand Palace. Additionally, the boat ride on the river was a lot of fun . . . and also the ride in tuk-tuk to get from the river to the palace. ...Carmen F., Chile – See more reviews
What To Expect
Forget your guidebook - the real stuff comes from the mouths of the locals! Explore some famous landmarks as well as hidden gems on this Bangkok day tour that takes you through the city by bus, on foot, and by boat!
You'll begin this Bangkok tour by hopping on a local public bus and heading over to the Grand Palace. Strolling through the palace grounds feels like walking through an Asian version of Alice in Wonderland - the buildings are so beautiful they almost don't feel real. But bet your bottom dollar, they're real alright! Your local guide will tell you all about the history behind the Palace and the most sacred Buddhist temple in Thailand, Wat Phra Kaew. This place is considered to be the spiritual center of the nation, making it a visit that you cannot afford to miss.
From one beautiful temple to another, you'll move on to Wat Po, another temple that is integral to the Buddhist religion in Thailand. It's home to the infamous golden reclining Buddha and is the birthplace of traditional Thai massage. This is one of the most popular things to do in Bangkok, and with your local guide to take your through the temples, you'll hear all the secret stories and local knowledge about the place.
You'll continue on this tour by walking down to the Chao Phraya River, or River of Kings, where you'll board a longtail boat. The name of the river perfectly reflects this part of the tour; you'll feel like royalty on your relaxing journey down the River of Kings! This is the reason why Bangkok is known as the Venice of the East, and you'll explore this nickname further on this Bangkok boat tour as you glide through the network of 'khlongs', or canals.
Your tour will finish up as you glide back into port, from where you can continue to explore or your local guide will be happy to give you directions back to your accommodation.
