- Half Day
You will be picked up at 07:30. It’s an early morning start to capture the best of Bangkok’s spiritual highlights. Travel to Wat Saket, a tranquil temple in the city centre. Arrive in time to witness the resident monks chanting their morning prayers, enjoying this serene and deeply spiritual ritual. Then offer alms to the monks, gaining blessings of health and safety.

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. Then continue through the historical district of Bangkok, passing by many beautiful religious buildings.

Make a stop at a small market to purchase ‘Sangkatan’¸ a special offering for monks. Carry these donations to Wat Ratchabophit, a beautiful temple that blends Thai architecture with European influences. Present the sangkatan to the monks, then wander around the temple compound, seeing local worshippers and devotees at prayer.

Then take a look at another aspect of Thai spirituality. Visit the Tiger God Shrine, one of the oldest Taoist temples in Bangkok. Learn about the Taoist belief system and its role in Thai society.
