Amid the skyscrapers, towers and traffic, lies a Bangkok full of heritage and history. The city also hides a secret – a network of waterways that has a Venetian feel in the heart of Asia.
Your Bangkok tour will take you to these gems – by boat and on foot.
To begin with, get off the road and hop on a longtail boat down the Chao Phraya River, also known as the River of Kings. Glide through the network of canals, known as khlongs, many of which have been turned into road where native Thai communities thrive. A cruise along these canals feels like a world away from the bustling streets of the main city. Relax and take it all in. Also travelling by boat allows you to avoid traffic – bonus!
Next up is a visit to one of Bangkok’s major highlights, the Grand Palace. Stroll through the palace grounds full of splendour and see the golden tops of the building glittering under the sun. Your guide will share the fascinating history behind the construction and architecture of palace.
Last but not the least, you will head to the famous Wat Po temple, home to the golden reclining Buddha and the birthplace of traditional Thai massage. Tour around the temple and hear secret stories and legends about the place.
If you are happy with the services provided by your local guide a tip - though not compulsory - is appropriate. While it may not be customary to you, it is of great significance to the people who will take care of you during your travels and inspires excellent service. Please consider this when budgeting for your extra expenses on this tour.
