Tour description

Set off on a journey to experience the city like locals as you travel by boat, heading to Bangkok’s old city, or Rattanakosin. Along the way, you will be entertained with insider stories of Bangkok’s landmarks. Arriving at the old city area, you will visit some of our favourite, must-see temples: The Grand Palace and Wat Pho and marvel at the unique and beautiful style of Thai temple architecture. Your guide will return you back to the original meeting point at the end of the tour.Please note: Long pants and short or long sleeve shirts are required for entry to the Royal Grand Palace and the Temple of the Emerald Buddha. Tank tops are not allowed. Proper footwear is also required.  Sandals are ok with something around the heel, but flip flops are not allowed. Sunscreen, sunglasses and a hat are never a bad idea for Bangkok weather!

Meet your guide down by the riverfront, Sathorn Pier, and then dive into Koh Rattanakosin by the Chao Phraya river taxi to see the highlights of the Old City of Bangkok. Explore the residence of the Thai Kings, the Grand Palace, and the most sacred Buddhist temple, Wat Phra Kaew. Then discover one of the largest temple complexes in the city famed for its stunning Reclining Buddha and is also the first university of Thailand and a center of traditional massage and medicine. Your half day trip ends and your guide will return you back to the original meeting point.
