Itinerary

For all those who fancy learning about the history and cultures of various places, this tour is sure to be an enjoyable one. Start your day early as you will be picked up from your hotel and taken to The Grand Palace which is Thailand’s most praised royal monument. Located in the heart of Bangkok, the palace has been the official residence of the Kings of Siam since 1782 and it serves as the perfect example of an ancient Siamese court. Spend some time to explore the palace as it leaves you awe-struck with its beautiful Thai architecture and intricate detailing. The palace is known as the spiritual heart of the kingdom and is used to mark all kinds of ceremonial and auspicious happenings. It houses various impressive buildings within its premises, including the renowned Wat Phra Kaew-the Temple of the Emerald Buddha. It features a Buddha image in the meditating position that has meticulously been carved from a single block of jade. Visitors aren’t allowed to go near the emerald Buddha, but you can still admire it from afar as you absorb the calm and tranquil vibe of the surroundings. The tour lets you choose between just visiting the Grand Palace and the Wat Phra Kaew, or you can also opt for a visit to the Wat Traimit, the Wat Pho and Wat Benchamaborpit, after passing through the lively streets of Chinatown. The Wat Traimit is known for its 5.5-ton Golden Buddha statue and Sukhothai style architecture while the Wat Pho houses the largest Buddha statue in Bangkok and is regarded as the first centre of public education since its inscriptions and statues are known to have educated people on subjects such as literature, warfare, archaeology, astronomy, geology and meditation. The Wat Benchamabophit is a popular tourist spot as it beautifully displays a blend of Italian Carrara marble and classical Thai architecture with a unique style of high gables, stepped-out roofs and detailed finials. Once you’re done with the fun-filled day of touring the palace and temples, you will be taken back to your hotel.
