The Golden Mount (Wat Saket)
Wat Saket in Bangkok Old Town is an Ayutthaya-era shrine with a gleaming gold chedi in Bangkok. Also called the Golden Mount, it occupies an 80-metre-tall manmade hill that was built during the reign of King Rama III. The temple welcomes worshippers year-round, though it’s busiest during its annual temple fair in November, during Loy Krathong. The temple grounds have mature trees and typical Buddhist structures such as the main chapel, ordination hall and library.

60 minutes • Admission Ticket Not Included

Wat Benchamabophit (The Marble Temple)
One of Bangkok’s most beautiful temples is the Wat Benchamabophit, also known as “the marble temple” or Wat Ben. As it is classified as a first class Royal temple, it is also a temple of significant importance.

The official name of the temple is Wat Benchamabophit Dusitwanaram, which means “the Monastery of the fifth King near Dusit Palace”, the fifth King being King Chulalongkorn the Great (Rama V).
Royal temple near Dusit Palace

At the end of the 19th century the King had Dusit Palace build, a large complex of Royal Palaces and Mansions including the Ananta Samakhom, the Vimanmek Royal Mansion and the Abhisek Throne Hall in Dusit district.

When Dusit Palace was finished, the King ordered construction of the marble temple in 1899 nearby on the site of an old temple complex dating from the early 19th century. In this temple, King Chulalongkorn ordained as a monk for a short time in 1873.

60 minutes • Admission Ticket Not Included

Bangkok City Pillar Shrine
Sitting at the very heart of Bangkok, the Lak Mueang or ‘city pillar’ is often overlooked by overseas visitors who come to see the better known attractions nearby such as the Grand Palace, Temple of the Emerald Buddha and Wat Pho. The Bangkok City Pillar Shrine may lack the more obvious grandeur and spectacle of its near neighbours, but it is historically and culturally one of the most significant locations in the Thai capital.
King Rama I and Old Bangkok

in 1782, the first king of the Chakri Dynasty, King Rama I, moved his capital from Thonburi to the other side of the Chao Phraya River. The new city would be easier to defend with Rattanakosin Island at its heart. This is the district referred to as ‘Old Bangkok’ where the Grand Palace is located, but the first building constructed at the new capital was the Lak Mueang city pillar. The Grand Palace and all of the other temples and buildings would follow later, but preparing a shrine for Phra Lak Mueang, the guardian spirit who protects the city, was the most important thing for King Rama I to do when establishing Bangkok as his new capital. To this day, Bangkok residents and Thai people visiting the city continue to pay their respects at Lak Mueang.

30 minutes • Admission Ticket Not Included

The Roof Top Bar
Only after experiencing these great—almost dizzying—heights can you understand why Sky Bar is a Bangkok institution. Why many consider a visit to the City of Angels incomplete without partaking in a Hangovertini or three.

You’ve had rooftop drinks before, but this bar is something else—something worthy of all the hype. Suspended on a precipice 820 feet in the air, Sky Bar is one of the highest rooftop bars in the world. Come for magic hour, or sundown, or after dark—it’s a different scene from hour to hour, thanks to the fading light, the flickering cityscape, and a backlit bar that changes color throughout the night.

Design your own day tour of Bangkok and surrounding area. See as many (or few) temples as you like. Tour guide with driver in comfortable air conditioned sedan. We chose to take at 3 hour (round trip) drive in order to see and ride the elephants. Highly recommended if you already know what you want to see and do.
excellent introduction to the best of Bangkok
CHIWHEI_L, 24-11-2019
excellent tour of the city's main sites and features. Our guide, Jip, met us right on time at our hotel lobby. After asking us what we wanted to do, she set up a plan to try to include all the sites I wanted to see. She even suggested a private boat ride through the small canals of Bangkok so that we could see another facet of the city most tourist don't get to see. Jip was very knowledgeable about the history of Thailand and the numerous sites. Even took us to a small local restaurant for the best Pad Thai I ever had. We started with a visit to the Golden Buddha..passing Chinatown on the way there. Then we saw the emerald Buddha and the Grand Palace and ended the tour with the Reclining Buddha. Along the way, we were able to use taxis, tuk-tuk, and local boats for transportation. She also gave us great suggestions for shopping and other areas of interest.
Difficult to understand guide
LBKArtWear, 11-02-2020
Our guide, although very nice and knowledgeable, was difficult to understand. She spoke fast and if you were directly in front of her it was ok....but not in the van or on the long boat. We did plan our own itinerary which she helped us with.
Bpw152, 10-12-2019
The grand palace was having a private event so we couldn't gain access- bummer. The guide was GREAT, , apologetic and tried to make it right with recommendations to return the next day. However, I was just bummed by missing one of the biggest attractions there. My rec for the company is to check with the venue the morning of to ensure people who traveled thousands of miles can actually gain access.
