There’s so much more to Bangkok than shopping and nightlife. This unique full-day tour takes you to two major landmarks, plus hidden treasures that reveal the city’s ancient Buddhist culture. Start with a river cruise to the must-see Grand Palace and Wat Po. Then, it’s off the usual tourist trail and into hidden communities carrying out traditional craftsmanship, and on to an exhibition of rare historical relics.

With this tour you can:
Join your guide as you navigate local transport to the edge of the Chao Phraya River. From the pier, board a public ferry and disembark at The Grand Palace, considered one of the most sacred sites in the Kingdom. Take a short walk to Wat Po, which houses the impressive reclining Buddha and also serves as a centre to train the blind in the art of massage. Test out there skills with a foot massage! Then hop aboard a tuk-tuk, and zip off to the royal temple of Wat Suthat and the Giant Swing.
After a Thai lunch, visit a handicraft centre to observe craftsmen creating beautiful ornate Buddha figures. A short walk away is Baan Bath - the House of Bowls, where monks fashion handmade alms bowls in a sacred tradition that goes back thousands of years. Take a walk in a side soi, where coffins are built for funerals at Wat Saket. Pop into the temple for a quick look and admire the views over the city. Next up is the 150-year-old Wat Ratchanatdaram with three levels and 37 spires - the only temple of its kind left in the world. End your day with a visit to a museum with relics dating back to the Thailand’s golden Ayutthaya period.
