Golden Buddha, Reclining Buddha & Marble Temple Tour

by Tour East Thailand Duration 3h 30m Picks up from select hotels Picks up from select hotels Free cancellation available No booking or credit card fees
per adult Price is AU$37

Delve into Bangkok's Buddhist heritage with a half-day exploration of the city's historic temples. Stand before the Buddha sculptures at Wat Traimit (Temple of the Golden Buddha) and Wat Pho (Temple of the Reclining Buddha), and marvel at the beautiful and ornate architecture of Wat Benchamabophit (Marble Temple).

After you're picked up from your hotel, (if chosen) ride through the city streets on your way to Wat Traimit, a temple whose gilded exterior houses the world's largest solid-gold Buddha statue. Weighing 5.5 tonnes and measuring 10 feet (3 metre) tall, this seated sculpture is believed to have been made back in the 13th or 14th century.

From there, continue on to Wat Pho, the grand royal temple complex that holds a (151-foot) 46-metre Reclining Buddha. One of Bangkok's oldest temples, Wat Pho was designated a royal monastery during the reign of King Rama I. Hear about the temple's role as a place of education for the public as you explore its pavilions and halls.

Continue your journey to Wat Benchamabophit, known as the marble temple for the Italian Carrara marble used to construct its ubosoth (a structure for ordinations). Traverse the striking marble courtyard to see the lions poised outside the the pillared entryway, and then end your tour at the nearby Gems Gallery, the biggest jewelery and gems store in the world. Spend as much time here as you'd like perusing the shimmering stones on offer before catching a ride back to your pick up point.

Sukhothai (Suki) is a man of wisdom and knowledge. I feel honored for him to share the history of the Golden Buddha, the Reclining Buddha, temples, the royal family and Buddhism in Thailand. Thank you Mr. Suki.

The tour guide was a bit hard to understand. The trip also ended at a gem store. This was not clear to us when we booked and we were not prepared or even interested in buying any of the very expensive, to us, items on offer.
