Full description

With an action-packed itinerary in store, the tour will start with swinging by a few of Bangkok’s most-loved attractions. These include the Grand Palace and Wat Phra Kaew, also known as the Temple of the Emerald Buddha because of the enormous statue inside. Stroll around the old city of Bangkok. The only place to rival it is your first stop, Wat Pho. This ancient temple is home to over 1,000 Buddha statues, one of which measures more than 150 feet in length. Next, see the sights along the Chao Phraya River on a traditional riverboat. Your guide will then lead you to an authentic Thai market where you can tuck in for a tasty local dinner. After eating, explore bejeweled Wat Arun (Temple of Dawn). Stroll the banks of the river and check out Kuan An Keng Shrine, the Portuguese Santa Cruz Church, and Wat Prayurawongsawas, three monuments of religious importance to the locals. For the final treat of the tour, cross the river by bridge to reach Pak Klong Talad, the city’s largest flower market, overflowing with garlands, bouquets, pot plants, and fresh fruit. The tour will end after taking a tuk-tuk ride to Chinatown. The largest Chinese community outside of China is responsible for some seriously tasty fusion dishes; you can sample some fare after this evening tour.

Our guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. She guided us at our pace and let us stay and ask questions at any place we liked. We saw and experienced a lot, but did not feel rushed at all. Highly recommend our guide. Jason and Linda
