Full description

Spend the day exploring many of Bangkok's highlights on a guided tour. Navigate its canals on a boat ride, visit the National Museum of Royal Barges, discover The Artists' House, and wander through Chinatown.

Start your tour by heading to the Pak Klong Talad flower market. Wander around the colorful market before boarding a long tail boat and traversing through the city’s canals. Explore the National Museum of Royal Barges. Converted from an old shipyard, today it exhibits intricately ornamented royal barges used in ceremonial processions by both royalty and locals. Visit The Artist’s House, a centuries-old house-turned-art gallery that features local art, photography exhibits, and a puppet show. Next, head to Wat Paknam Phasi Charoen, a temple with a beautiful green stupa and the city’s tallest Buddha statue. Finally, check out Chinatown, famous for its bustling atmosphere, foodie spots, and shopping. Get some shopping done, grab a bite to eat, or simply explore the area before your guide drops you off at the Wat Mangkon MRT Station.
