Bangkok Temples Tour including reclining Buddha at Wat Pho

The Buddhist religion plays an important part in the fabric of the Thai way of life. It is celebrated with offerings performed daily to spiritual deity’s to ensure health, wealth and happiness. On your tour you will visit three of Bangkok’s most famous wats (temples) and see an insiders perspective of this fascinating culture.

Wat Pho
Wat Pho is one of the largest and oldest wats in Bangkok and home to the Temple of the Reclining Buddha, the largest reclining Buddha in Bangkok. The wat also houses more than one thousand images of Buddha and is favored among the locals as a place to worship. It is also renowned as the birthplace of traditional Thai massage and is considered the first public university of Thailand, teaching students in the fields of religion, science and literature.

Wat Tramit
The Buddha at Wat Traimit was discovered by accident when it was accidentally dropped as it was being moved, revealing under a casing of plaster, a beautiful solid gold Sukhothai style Buddha. The three meter tall statue is made from solid gold and weighs 5.5 tons. You can still see pieces of the original plaster casing on display today.

Wat Benchamabophit
Wat Benchamabophit, was built upon request by King Chulalongkorn whose palace was nearby. It is also known as the marble temple and is one of the cities most beautiful. Constructed from the finest Italian marble, it typifies Bangkok's ornate style of high gables, stepped-out roofs and elaborate finials.

Its AMAZING!!!!!!!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2014

I made the booking 1 day before the intended date. It was written in the confirmation that either the the hotel or I'll be contacted to confirm the pick-up location and time. However that didn't happen and i called the emergency hotline number that was provided. Was advised to call in the morning (which was the day of the tour). Their main office opens as early as 6am and my issue was addressed promptly. I was picked up but for the wrong tour and the tour guide very kindly and professionally chauffeured us to the location of the correct tour and left us in good hands. A recommended tour indeed!!
