Visit Wat Trimit, known for its famous Golden Buddha. The beautiful image of solid gold is three metres high and weighs five and a half tons.
Continue the tour visit Chinatown. The bustling business area of Chinatown is especially known for its gold jewellery shops. Chinatown in Bangkok is centered around Yaowarat Road. It’s a vibrant, colorful area with its bustling street markets, gold shops, Chinese restaurants, shrines, temples, old shophouses, Chinese language neon signs and maze of narrow alleyways. The area has kept its cultural identity intact and thankfully avoided commercial redevelopment. Examples of well-preserved colonial-style architecture are abundant.
Visit Wat Pho (Temple of the Reclining Buddha), founded in the 16th century, the oldest and biggest temple with the largest number of pagodas (95 in all) in the city. Wat Pho was the first open university of Thailand which offered courses in several branches of knowledge like literature, astrology, medicine and massage. It’s well known for its huge Reclining Buddha, 46 m. long and 15 m. high.
We’re embarking on a private long-tail boat tour along the Chao Phraya River and canals in the Thonburi area. As we cruise along the water, we’ll ooh and aah at the traditional wooden houses and stilt houses that line the canals, observe the local way of life, and gawk at bustling markets and ancient temples. The famous long-tail boats will speed by, making us feel like true adventurers, and the private nature of the tour provides a more intimate and personalized experience. If we’re lucky, we might even spot some handsome guys taking a swim in the canal. As we relax on the boat, we’ll take in the peaceful atmosphere and enjoy the picturesque scenery of Thai life along the river banks. So, grab your sunnies and let’s set sail!
Continue your tour with a city-sightseeing excursion along Ratchadumnoen Rd, also known as the Royal’s Way. Along the way, you’ll see a number of magnificent temples and architectural buildings, including the City Pillar Shrine, National Museum, Democracy Monument, Golden Mountain, Thai Boxing Stadium, Anantasamakhom Palace, Parliament House, Dusit Zoo, and Chitlada Palace, King’s Residence.
