China Town, Royal Grand Palace & Emerald Buddha Temple, Reclining Buddha Temple
The perfect introduction to Bangkok, this tour takes in both the hidden world of Bangkok's back streets and the glittering world of its grandest temples.
The tour starts in Chinatown where you will see busy markets, bustling streets and atmospheric Chinese temples then we'll make our way to Ratanakosin by tuk tuk (three wheels motor vehicle) to visit Wat Phra Kaew on the ground of the Royal Palace, Thailand's most sacred shrine, and one of the world's most fascinating spiritual centers.
Lunch in a local restaurant on the river then the spectacle of Wat Po with the enormous reclining buddha is next to visit
Finally, we will take a private longtailed "James Bond" boat drive through canals.
Optional : I can arrange one tuk tuk as private transport at US$60/for 2-3 people and pay on spot if you wish.
Meet at hotel at 09:00 am and travel to CHINA TOWN by taxi or subway, explore this congested community, MARKETS, backstreets, SHRINE then follow another visit to the GRAND PALACE with EMERALD BUDDHA TEMPLE Thailand's most sacred shrine. Lunch at a local restaurant close by and then proceed to the RECLINING BUDDHA TEMPLE next to the palace view the 46 meters long and 15 meters high of the GIGANTIC BUDDHA plus things in this temple then continue with a ride on a long tail boat through the canals which is the last of the tour for today.
