Bangkok City & Temples Tour

Enjoy a tour of Bangkok's most recognised and breathtaking Buddhist temples including the incredible reclining Buddha on this wonderful introductory tour.

Around 95% of Thais follow the Buddhist way of life and, as a result, over 26,000 temples can be found within Thailand's borders. This charming half day tour introduces you to three of the most distinguished temples in Bangkok.

Locally referred to as Wats these buildings are beautiful examples of Thai architecture and are well worth a visit. After a pick-up from your hotel, head through the bustling Bangkok streets to Wat Trimit, also known as the Temple of the Golden Buddha.

Here you will find a three metre Golden Buddha statue, crafted from solid gold and weighing five and a half tons. Now more than seven hundred years old the statue was originally covered in plaster to conceal it from the then invading enemy and was only discovered by chance from a layer of stucco during construction of the temple.

The tour then takes you through Chinatown on your way to Wat Pho, more commonly known as the Temple of the Reclining Buddha. The temple dates from the seventeenth century and houses the largest Buddha in Bangkok.

In addition to the fine features of the Buddha's face, also take a few minutes to inspect the soles of the Buddha's feet which lie an incredible 45 meters away from the head and have been inlaid with mother-of-pearl to display the 108 auspicious signs which distinguish a true Buddha.

The last temple on the itinerary is Wat Benchamabophit or the Marble Temple. A fine example of Thai craftsmanship, this magnificent monastery was built out of white Italian marble from Carrara in the late 19th century and is world-renowned for its stunning architecture and decorative art.
