Your tour starts by meeting your private guide at a location in Bangkok, which you'll get to know over the course of this experience that introduces you to the city's hidden gems.
Your first stop is a spot that provides a view of Wat Traimit before you head to the temple itself, home to a gold Buddha statue. Continue to the market in Chinatown, a food hub packed with stalls, eateries, shops, and Chinese temples, and then hop on a local bus with your guide to reach Pak Khlong Talat (Flower Market), where locals buy flowers to use as offerings at temples.
Next up, cross the Memorial Bridge over the Chao Phraya River, and then take a break for lunch with your guide (own expense). After eating, head to Wat Pho, a Buddhist temple complex famous for its reclining Buddha. This temple is also known as the birthplace of Thai massage. You'll then hop on another mode of transport—a tuk-tuk—for a ride along busy streets to reach the Golden Mount (Wat Saket), a manmade hill topped with a gold stupa. Here you'll have a 360-degree view of Bangkok.
Finally, take a boat ride from Phan Pa Klong, enjoying scenes of local life along the canals; keep your eyes open for water monitor lizards, too. Your tour ends with a drink at a local spot chosen by your guide (own expense).
