- Tour key Bangkok landmarks with a local guide
- The must-see temples on any city visit
If you’re only in Bangkok for a short time then you probably want to see as much as you can as fast as possible. This fab sightseeing tour led by a friendly local guide takes you to many of the most important sights of historic and religious significance in Bangkok. Begin at Wat Phra Kaew, otherwise known as the Temple of the Emerald Buddha. The most sacred temple in Thailand, it is located within the Grand Palace and holds a small statue of Buddha carved from a single piece of jade that only the Thai King is allowed to touch. Nearby, the main attraction at Wat Pho is the famous Reclining Buddha. The temple is said to be the birthplace of Thai massage.
After lunch at a local market - which is included in the price of this Bangkok gift experience - you’ll take a short boat ride out to Wat Arun, the Temple of Dawn. Wat Arun’s prangs, or spires, are among the most recognisable sights on the Bangkok skyline, especially the one on the centre which beautifully reflects the light at sunrise. Together, these temples are the ones you must not miss in Bangkok, and this tour gives you plenty of time to explore and take photos.
