Overview

Board a longtail boat for a journey along the Chao Phraya River (River of Kings) and explore the canals of Bangkok. Your half-day tour includes cultural highlights of the Thai capital such as the majestic Grand Palace where you can view the Emerald Buddha at Wat Phra Kaew. You’ll also visit Wat Pho, a temple that houses the Reclining Buddha. Numbers are limited to 12 for a small-group experience.
  • Explore the canals and the inspiring temples of Bangkok on this majestic tour
  • Visit the Grand Palace and see the Reclining Buddha at Wat Po
  • Travel by longtail boat through the canals of Bangkok, also known as the 'Venice of the East'
  • Enjoy an intimate experience with a small group limited to 12 people
After meeting your guide you’ll board a local bus to the Grand Palace, which formerly served as the official residence of the King of Siam. Follow your guide on foot through the complex, built in 1782, and stand in awe before the revered Emerald Buddha — Thailand’s holiest religious statue carved from jade — housed in Wat Phra Kaew.

Continue on with a walk to Wat Pho for a guided tour of this impressive temple complex. Home to the Reclining Buddha, the largest reclining Buddha image in Bangkok, Wat Pho was the country’s first public university and still functions as a center of learning for traditional Thai massage and medicines.

Next up is a longtail boat for a trip down the Chao Phraya River, translated as the River of Kings. Explore the khlongs (canals) of Bangkok and get a glimpse into the past as you learn about what was once a vast network providing transport throughout the city once known as the 'Venice of the East.’

After the boat journey, your half-day tour concludes at the pier. From here, you can continue exploring on your own or your guide will assist you in getting a taxi back to your hotel.

This tour covers a lot of ground and is very tiring due to the heat and the crowds. Make sure that you take plenty of water. Our guide was very informative. Make sure that you allow plenty of time to get to the meeting point because of the Bangkok traffic.
