Bangkok City Tour


Meals: Breakfast

Today shall be spent on discovering the charms of Bangkok – city of golden temples and the pride of Thai. Bangkok is the way the rest of the world called the city after an ancient boisterous central area. The actual name of Bangkok comprises dozens of words that represents its magnificence and gilded features. Locals Thai call their capital “Krung Thep Maha Nakhon” for short. 

The first stop of today is the Royal Grand Palace that comprises three main sites: The Royal Palace, The Royal Office and a complex of pagodas (Wat in Thai) constructed during the 1770s. Now under the reign of King Maha Vajiralongkorn (Rama X), most of the kingdom’s important events take place here. The main feature of the royal pagoda complex is Wat Phra Kaew, also known as the Temple of Emerald Buddha. The site is well-known not only for its fascinating unique Buddhism architecture style of Thailand but also for being home to the gilded Buddha statue made out of emerald. Despite thousands of pagodas and temples in Thailand, Wat Phra Kaew’s sacred value in Thai conception is so significant that they built a mile of walls surrounding the site since it is believed that if the statue is stolen or harmed, their dynasty will doom. 

Next to the Grand Palace is Wat Pho – famous for being the most ancient and massive pagoda in Bangkok and home to more than a thousand statues of Buddha and one huge gold Buddha. 

Next up, we shall embark a boat and cruise along the river of Chao Phraya, listening to the ambience of life in Bangkok. Stop en route at Wat Arun located on the bank of Chao Phraya River, one of the most charming pagodas in Bangkok featuring unique architecture that differs from all other pagodas.
