Temple of the Golden Buddha (Wat Traimit)
The Temple of Golden Buddha or Wat Traimit is located in the Yaowarat Road in Chinatown, Bangkok. The temple is largely unremarkable, like the thousands of other Buddhist Temples in the city - except for the fact that it houses the world’s largest gold image of Buddha.
The statue is made in the Sukhothai style of the 14th Century, although it could have been made after that period - the origins of the statue are still unknown. At some point in time, the statue was covered in stucco and plaster, so as to protect it from theft and the Burmese invasion. It worked, and the statue remained in Ayutthaya without attracting any attention. Later, when King Rama I shifted capitals to Bangkok, he ordered his men to bring back all the religious figurines and images from the destroyed city. And so it remained, for over a century and a half with nobody discovering its true worth under humble tin roofing. In 1954, when the statue was to be moved to a newly constructed viharn, it is said that the statue fell down, with the gold being revealed under the broken plaster. Its current housing, the large new building at Wat Traimit, was inaugurated on Valentine’s Day, 2010.

The Grand Palace
Bangkok's Grand Palace is the granddaddy of the many things to see in Thailand's capital city. The sprawling complex houses ornate structures that speak to the grandeur of Thai architectural tradition and history. Built in 1782, the palace was commissioned by then-king Rama I, who founded Thailand's Chakri Dynasty.
During the centuries since it was first built, the palace grounds have been well maintained with particular care being taken to preserve and restore the palace's extensive murals. It's worth the splurge to experience a piece of Thailand's royal history firsthand.

Temple of the Emerald Buddha (Wat Phra Kaew)
The Temple of the Emerald Buddha, Wat Phra Kaeo, is the most sacred structure in the Kingdom and the repository of the spirit for all the Thai people. The history of the Emerald Buddha itself dates back more than 600 years and also represents the struggle of the Thai people to maintain their independence from foreign aggressors.In the 18th century, world architecture had pretty much become European architecture. But there was a wonderful exception and that was the Wat Phra Kaew in Thailand. As an independent kingdom, called Siam back then, this nation combined traditional and foreign elements, creating a unique building of astonishing beauty. Let's find out more. The Wat Phra Kaew is a Buddhist temple located in the center of Bangkok, the capital of Thailand. It was built by the end of the 18th century, inside the grounds of the Royal Palace close to the banks of the Chao Phraya river and it consists of a series of structures, all enclosed by a perimeter wall.

Chinatown - Bangkok
Bangkok’s Chinatown is a popular tourist attraction and a food haven for new generation gourmands who flock here after sunset to explore the vibrant street-side cuisine. At day time, it’s no less busy, as hordes of shoppers descend upon this 1-km strip and adjacent Charoenkrung Road to get a day’s worth of staple, trade gold, or pay a visit to one of the Chinese temples.

Pak Khlong Talat (Flower Market)
Bangkok Flower Market (Pak Klong Talad) is the biggest wholesale and retail fresh flower market in Bangkok. The market has all kinds of popular flowers and flora-related items, including roses, forget me nots, orchids, lilies and more. Most of them sold in packs of 50 or 100 flowers in each, and prices are amazingly cheap. Part of the Old City, Bangkok Flower market is located on Chak Phet Road near Saphan Phut or the Memorial Bridge. Shops and vendors are housed inside two to three-storey shop-houses on both sides of the main road. The market lies just south of Wat Pho (Temple of the Reclining Buddha) and has access to a river pier, so it makes for a great one-day trip when combined with other historical attractions in the Old City.

Temple Of Dawn (Wat Arun)
Wat Arun Ratchawararam, meaning Temple of Dawn, is also know locally as Wat Chaeng. The temple, which is named after the Indian God Aruna (God of Dawn) sits majestically on the Thonburi side (west bank) of the Chao Phraya River and is easily one of the most recognizable and memorable landmarks of Bangkok’s skyline. The most spectacular view of the glittering monument can be seen from the east side of the river at sunset as Wat Arun’s colorfully decorated spires sparkle radiantly over the water.Wat Arun was envisioned by King Taksin in 1768. It is believed that after fighting his way out of Ayutthaya, which was taken over by a Burmese army at the time, he arrived at this temple just as dawn was breaking.

Wat Phra Chetuphon
The Wat Pho or “Temple of the Reclining Buddha” is one of Bangkok’s most attractive temples. It is a much visited temple complex due to its location immediately South of the Grand Palace and the huge Reclining Buddha image it houses.
The temple that is officially named Wat Phra Chetuphon Wimonmangkhalaram is one of the six temples in Thailand that are of the highest grade of the first class Royal temples.
At last, it's an ideal opportunity to return. Furthermore, drop off you at your Bangkok City Hotel around 5 pm.

Fabulous full day temple tour
mikss1, 16-02-2020
This was our first time in Bangkok so we decided to book a full day tour. There are so many to choose from but decided on a private tour (Mam holidays Thailand). We made the right choice! They pick you up from your hotel. Our guide (Her name was A) met us and was even early. We were driven around in a very comfortable and clean Toyota suv. A took us around to 4 temples, a ferry ride, and a walk through a flower market. The tour even came with lunch. A was very accommodating and knowledgeable of each temple. She explained everything to us and was easy to understand. She would buy us water without us even asking. She was always asking if we needed anything. We highly recommend this tour.
Amazing private tour

The description of this tour was that it was a ‘full day’ seeing the top destinations in Bangkok – and it was. Chutima Nawsoon – aka ‘Giamo’ picked us up at our hotel and we were off to the races. Giamo was – friendly knowledgeable and fun, she answered all of our questions, we stopped at a local – not a ‘tourist’ restaurant for a delicious lunch and she provided recommendations on things we might want to see or do on our own. We would never have been able to navigate all of that in a day if not for Giamo. After the tour she emailed us the photos that she had taken throughout the day. Highly recommend using MAM and asking for Giamo.
Expensive but definitely worth it

We are only in Bangkok for 3 days and wanted to experience a day of visiting key historical sites. This trip seem to cover all of a checklist, and it didn’t disappoint
Miss A was great. She arrived on time, unfortunately due to a mix up with a message being passed on by the hotel. we thought the tour had been changed to a later start Miss A was really understanding making sure we still experienced the full day.
Cold drinks were provided and we even managed to try a few snacks from the street vendors.
We didn’t feel rushed but it was a fast paced day. From a Splendour of the temples to the smell of the flower markets, we had it all. This is not a cheap trip but if you want a vip treatment give this a go. 5/5 even from my teenage son
Essential sights during stop over to New Zealand

We had only a small time in Bangkok to absorb some of the main sights. We wanted a personal guide and predictable itinerary so we would be assured of comfort in the heat but still make sure we got a true taste of Thai culture. Our tour included main temples ( Emerald Buddha and Reclining Buddha ) and the Grand Palace , flower market , with buffet lunch on on a moored boat . We had also wanted to experience a traditional long boat and our guide Aey was quick to accommodate this for us. Although not included originally we managed to get secure a booking and for a good price. Phoning ahead meant we were able to skip the queue and hop straight into our long boat.
Our transport through the day was an air conditioned car which was always prompt
to deliver and collect us between sights. The thoughtful aspects of our guide was very evident throughout the day ; drinks organised as needed , fruit, snacks , flower garland, and as we set off at the moment the timely provision of a face masks to protect in the current health scare . We felt well looked after and appreciated the excellent knowledge Aey had for each place we visited. A charming guide and a very successful day . We truly felt we had achieved a lot. Thank you ! We can definitely recommend :)
Great Thailand Tours

This was a great informative trip. Miss Supatsara Wonghong, our guide was informative, speaks English well and was very kind. We visited Bangkok and Ayutthaya on two separate days. She was our guide for both. She organized and guided a wonderful trip for us. So happy we did these tours.
One of the best tours I have ever been on!
Juddson_L, 08-12-2022
This was a fantastic tour! Aey was a great guide. She was a wealth of knowledge and kept us on the move. She helped with picture taking as well. I would definitely use her again!
