Bangkok City and Temple Guided Tour

by I Asia Thailand Duration 3h Free cancellation available No booking or credit card fees
per adult Price is AU$52

Bangkok is known by its abbreviated name to Thais - Krung Thep. The full name happens to give it the distinction of being the city with the longest name in the world! This three hour city tour takes you to three of the most prominent temples in the city, The Golden Temple, The Temple of the Reclining Buddha and The Marble Temple.

Established in 1782 by the first King of the Chakri Dynasty, His Majesty King Phra Phutta Yotfa Chugalug Maha Rat, Bangkok can be regarded as one of the most fascinating ancient cities in the world. Today it is home to over 11 million people and is littered with skyscrapers, modern technology, its famous traffic issues, unbeatable shopping opportunities and so much more.

This tour takes you through the bustle and hustle of Bangkok to visit Wat Trimitr, Wat Pho and Wat Benchamabophit.

Wat Trimitr -This temple is known for its famous Golden Buddha constructed during the Sukhothai period. The solid gold Image is 3 metres high and weighs five and a half tonnes.

Wat Pho - This temple is one of Bangkok’s oldest and largest temples. Wat Pho was built by King Rama I about 200 years ago and houses the gigantic gold plated Reclining Buddha image. This unique image is 49 metres long and 12 metres high with beautifully inlaid mother-of-pearl soles.

Driving past Sanam Laung (The Royal Field), Democracy Monument, Ratcha Damnoen Klang Avenue and associate buildings, Anantasamakhom Palace and Parliament Building is the third, very fascinating, temple visit.

Wat Benchamabophit- This temple is well-known because its main building was built of white Italian marble from Carrara during the reign of King Rama V.

What a great experience. The guide Nok who picked us up was very informative and gave out a lot of information to the group. The temples were amazing and as I was alone the guide had no objection in taking my photo when I asked. The recline Buddha was the best temple by far and nok was always giving us lots to think about. She was very funny and made us smile. I recommend this tour absolutely!

This was the WORST tour I have ever experienced!!!!! The tour guide said absolutely NOTHING. He gave us a meeting place and left us. He provided absolutely NO information in the van and he could not be bothered providing history, places of interest, general info etc, he literally did not speak at all . It is so sad to fly over 9000 Miles from ny to Bangkok and learn nothing about three magnificent temples!!! I am soooo disappointed !!!!!

It was horrible. The guide was rude and abrasive. She did not take us to one of the main temples because when we arrived she said it was closed. You are a guide and you don't know when the temples open and close? Avoid this tour at all cost. It was the worst experience during my entire trip. I would recommend going to the temples on your own. It costs 100baht (3.20 USD) to enter the temples and some are free. Do not pay what they are asking for this tour, you will be miserable and disappointed. I would give this tour no stars if it were an option.
