Bangkok 4 hours tour


On this Bangkok walking tour I will meet you at Golden Mount (or at your hotel if you like). From here we'll start our tour and climb up this man made hill for a stunning view over town.

From here we'll get on a tuk tuk or taxi to the Grand Palace and visit the Emerald Buddha statue. This statue belonged to many different countries and tribes for many countries so it's history is full of ancient stories and myths.
We continue to the Grand Palace where all royal ceremonies are held and these ancient royal traditions are still maintained for the royal family to adhere to. Although sometimes it's hard to grasp these powerful systems, it will bring enligtenment to all who revere the ancient kings while walking along the palace grounds.

From this side of town we will take a ferry to cross the might Chao Praya river and walk along the Wang Lang food market. This market is famous among Thai students for the delicious food and hip fashion items on sale here.

A Recent Review of this tour

We had seen the major tourist sites in Bangkok so we asked Tommy to show us some sites off the beaten path. I had tried to find the Ban Bat Community before and had been unsuccessful. Tommy not only took us there, we were able to find and purchase a beautiful handmade monks alms begging bowl to take home with us. There is only one place left that makes these bowls and soon I think they will all be made by machine. Thank you Tommy!
