Private Tour: Bangkok Temples including reclining Buddha at Wat Pho

Marble Temple, Bangkok

Your Bangkok private half-day tour includes visits to three of the city’s most famous wats. Follow your informative local guide on a tour of Wat Traimit, where the famed Golden Buddha lives. This solid-gold statue weighs some 5.5 tons and widely known throughout the country.

Wander through the local Chinatown as you make your way to Wat Pho, where the impressive reclining Buddha stretches some 46 meters across the temple. The largest in Bangkok, it is a truly memorable site.

Finally, head to Wat Benchamabophit—an impressive marble temple built out of slabs imported from Italy. Your guide will share stories and insight into the rich detailing that makes this wat a truly iconic stop.

We combined this private tour with the Grand Palace complex. Our guide Pandua not sure of the spelling was incredible. Polite, professional, well informed and very interesting. We covered so much in a reasonable time and thanks to him we were able to manage the complex logistics of getting to all these different places and avoiding many lines.

He also was very knowledgable about Thai history and the Royal family. Lovely anecdotes about the Royal family. I felt I had a mini course in Thai history and culture in the most pleasant way

Highly, highly recommend!

I think this should be a mandatory tour on tourist map of Bangkok. My tour guide tried very hard entire tour to provide me window of history at all three places. She did outstanding job. This tour by itself is very interesting.
