What To Expect

The Grand Palace
The Grand Palace is a complex of buildings at the heart of Bangkok, Thailand. The palace has been the official residence of the Kings of Siam (and later Thailand) since 1782. The king, his court, and his royal government were based on the grounds of the palace until 1925. King Bhumibol Adulyadej (Rama IX), resided at the Chitralada Royal Villa and his successor King Vajiralongkorn (Rama X) at the Amphorn Sathan Residential Hall, both in the Dusit Palace, but the Grand Palace is still used for official events. Several royal ceremonies and state functions are held within the walls of the palace every year. The palace is one of the most popular tourist attractions in Thailand

Wat Phra Chetuphon
The temple is first on the list of six temples in Thailand classed as the highest grade of the first-class royal templ.
It is associated with King Rama I who rebuilt the temple complex on an earlier temple site. It became his main temple and is where some of his ashes are enshrined.
The temple was later expanded and extensively renovated by Rama III. The temple complex houses the largest collection of Buddha images in Thailand, including a 46 m long reclining Buddha. The temple is considered the earliest centre for public education in Thailand, and the marble illustrations and inscriptions placed in the temple for public instructions has been recognised by UNESCO in its Memory of the World Programme. It houses a school of Thai medicine, and is also known as the birthplace of traditional Thai massage which is still taught and practiced at the temple.

Temple of the Golden Buddha (Wat Traimit)
Wat Traimit in Bangkok is known for housing a 5.5-tonne statue of a seated Buddha. The gold sculpture dates back to the 13th century and measures at nearly 5 metres in height. Located in Chinatown Bangkok, this ornate temple is about 450 metres west of the Hualampong Railway Station

60 minutes • Admission Ticket Included

Temple Of Dawn (Wat Arun)
Wat Arun, locally known as Wat Chaeng, is a landmark temple on the west (Thonburi) bank of the Chao Phraya river. It’s easily one of the most stunning temples in Bangkok, not only because of its riverside location but also because the design is very different from the other temples you can visit in the Thai capital. Wat Arun (nicknamed the 'Temple of Dawn') is partly made up of colourfully decorated spires and stands majestically over the water.

Wat Arun is almost directly opposite Wat Pho, so it’s very easy to get to. From Saphan Taksin boat pier you can take a riverboat that stops at Pier 8. From here, a small shuttle boat takes you from one side of the river to the other.

Great tour of Bangkok

We only had 2 full days in Bangkok and wanted to see quite a lot so booked this trip and it included most of the things we wanted to see.

We were ready early so decided to head to the lobby to wait which was great timing as our guide was also early and we were able to set off before the scheduled pick up time.

The trip included the Grand Palace, Golden Buddha and the Temple of the Reclining Buddha and our guide was very knowledgeable and really informative which helped us to get more out of the day than had we ventured out on our own.

Booking a Sunday and being there early also meant that some of the roads were quieter and we were able to get around quite easily.

Our driver was great and kept us stocked up with bottled water. For lunch we ate at one of the food courts near our hotel so only had a couple of minutes walk back.

If you've not been to Bangkok before I'd definitely recommend this trip, it's so much easier than navigating your own way round and the guide really helps to get the most out of what you're seeing.
Fabulous day and made me decide to live here and get out of the UK

We let the tour go on without us. We sat in a cafe in the temple grounds, had coffee, and as my friend is Thai, we went to speak with some of the monks.
It was a fab day all round

This was a really good half day tour. Our guide was informative and friendly. We visited the grand palace, temples and Buddhas and finished with a lovely lunch in a local restaurant. We also saw the Kings Son during our visit to the palace. Highly recommend. It’s great having a private tour.
Very personable and knowledgeable guide.

Our guide was Ms. Maliwan. She was extremely knowledgeable of any subject matter related to the Temples. Many people along the way knew her, so she is obviously a very experienced guide. Highly recommend her and this tour.
