Itinerary

This tour is extremely popular, especially amongst those who are particularly interested in learning about Buddhism and its history. Kickstart your day early and gear up for an insightful experience as you visit three of Bangkok’s most renowned temples. You could also opt for the afternoon slot, as per your convenience. You will be picked up from your hotel lobby and taken to see the first temple- Wat Traimit; the Temple of the Golden Buddha. Take some time to marvel at the world's largest solid gold statue and admire the exquisite Sukhothai style architecture. You will then pass through the vibrant streets of Chinatown that are packed with market stalls, street-side restaurants and plenty of gold shops, as you head to Wat Pho- the Temple of the Reclining Buddha which houses the largest Buddha statue in Bangkok. This temple is also known as the place Thai massages originated from and is also home to the shrine of the Kings. Wat Pho is also regarded as the first centre of public education as its mural paintings, inscriptions, and statues have educated people on various subjects such as literature, warfare, archaeology, astronomy, geology and meditation. After this, you will be taken to Wat Benchamabophit, popularly known as the Marble Temple. It showcases a perfect blend of Italian Carrara marble and classical Thai architecture and exemplifies Bangkok's ornate style of high gables, stepped-out roofs and detailed finials.
