Full description

Explore the top sights in Bangkok on this day trip. Visit the Grand Palace, Emerald Buddha, Wat Arun, and take a stroll through the vibrant and bustling old market in Chinatown. Cross the Chao Phraya River on a boat ride. Begin your 7-hour tour with a pick-up from the main lobby of your hotel in Bangkok at 08:00 AM. Then, visit the Grand Palace and Temple of Emerald Buddha, the former residence of the kings of Thailand since 1782, by local public transport. Learn about Thai history and culture from your personal tour guide. After the Grand Palace and Temple of Emerald Buddha, continue to Wat Pho or the Temple of the Reclining Buddha where you can marvel at the great Reclining Buddha. Cross the magnificent Chao Phraya River by public boat to visit Wat Arun, also known as the Temple of Dawn. It is one of the must-visit landmarks in Bangkok where you can spot its famous giant tower, standing 70 meters high. Have an optional Thai lunch at the local restaurant before transferring to Chinatown by subway train. Explore Chinatown and the old market to observe the local way of life. Your journey will end with a return transfer to your hotel in Bangkok. Instead of using public transport, you can also select the option to have a private air-conditioned car for your trip.

We had a fantastic day with Tam. Would definitely recommend this experience to anyone visiting Bangkok for the first time. You see and learn about all the temples and kings, visit hidden gems (flower market), and answers to anything and everything about the Thai couture. We also had a lot of laughter.

We had a great time with Peter today, he is really friendly and accommodating, he explained everything very well and made sure we were comfortable The tour itself was amazing, if you are looking to see Bangkok and you are short on time this tour is the best! Thank you Peter, 10/10 service :)

We were picked up from the hotel right on time. Nok Natalie was really friendly and full of energy. She explained us the entire itinerary and shared all the necessary information about the place. She was patient enough to listen to all our requests and took lot of pictures for us. I couldn’t have asked for a better guide for this tour. Even our driver Panom was really accommodating and made sure we were all comfortable. I am so glad I booked this trip from “Quality Thai guide”, indeed the best in market. Thank you.
