Thailand is predominantly a Buddhist country with around 95% of Thai's practicing the Theravada discipline of Buddhism. As you wander the streets of Bangkok it is not unusual to see monks adorned in their maroon and yellow colors walking along the road and it should come as no surprise as Thailand has over 26,000 Wat's (the local name for temple).

What You Can Expect

Best Private Tour: Bangkok Temples including reclining Buddha at Wat Pho

Marble Temple, Bangkok

On this privately guided half-day tour you will visit three of the most famous wat's in Bangkok - Wat Traimit, Wat Pho and Wat Benchamabophit. A Wat is a Buddhist building where both men and women can be ordained as monks or nuns.

Wat Traimit is also known as the temple of the Golden Buddha. The 3 meter tall statue is made from solid gold and weighs 5.5 tons and is a fine example of Sukhothai style art.

You will then pass through Chinatown on your way to Wat Pho, the temple of the reclining Buddha. At 46 meters in length and 15 meters high the Buddha is the largest in Bangkok and illustrates the passing of the Buddha into nirvana.

Your last stop is at Wat Benchamabophit, or the marble temple. This magnificent monastery was built out of white Italian marble from Carrara in the late 19th century.

This tour was very interesting made more so by our private guide who was extre,Ely knowledgable on the subject. It really was enlightening to see the temples and our guide gave us plenty of time to take photos and also took pics for us. Highly recommend a private tour as it is so much more personal. Not to be missed if you are in Bangkok.

My boyfriend and I really enjoyed this private tour. Our tour guide was Ms. Pearl. She was really friendly and she was so kind to wait for us as we were slightly late.

She brought us around the temples and helped us take our pictures.

It was a wonderful experience.

I would go again for sure.

Thank you!

The guide was on time to pick us up at our hotel in a van. Very informative tour on a Monday afternoon. Dropped us off at a nearby shopping mall after 3 hours. Everything was relaxed and painless.
