Bangkok Sightseeing
- Full Day
You will be picked up at 08:00. Spend a day exploring one of the world’s most captivating capitals on this full day Bangkok sightseeing tour. Although it would be impossible to see all its wonders in one day, this excursion provides an insightful, comprehensive introduction.

Start the day with a trip aboard a Longtail Boat. Move away from the high rises of the city and venture through the quiet canals upon which the city was originally built. Catch glimpses of the olden days, passing by charming neighbourhoods built on the water’s edge.

Return to the main waterway, the Chao Phraya River, to visit Wat Arun. Meaning ‘Temple of the Dawn’, this riverside pagoda dates to the 17th century. Wander among the prangs (spires), the largest of which is built to resemble Mount Meru from Hindu mythology. Admire its incredible decoration with ceramic tiles depicting figures of Chinese soldiers and animals.

Then cross the river and take a short walk to the Grand Palace, perhaps Thailand’s best known site. Be enchanted by the incredible compound of lush gardens and spectacular buildings. Visit the royal throne halls and remarkable Emerald Buddha.

Take a break at midday for lunch in a riverside restaurant, enjoying delicious Thai food with fabulous views. Then continue onwards to Wat Saket, a tranquil temple in the city centre. Take a short walk up the temple’s golden hill, listening to the chimes of the temple’s bells. Enjoy fantastic views of the Rattanakosin neighbourhood from this elevated viewpoint.

The full day Bangkok sightseeing tour concludes at Wat Benchamabophit. Also known as ‘Marble Temple’, this remarkable temple is unique in that it fuses Thai style with European architecture and is built entirely of Italian marble. Learn about the history of the monument and get a glimpse into the daily lives of Thai monks while exploring the vast site.

Following this insightful exploration of Bangkok, return to the hotel in the late afternoon. (L)
