Traveling in a small group, maximum 12 passengers allowing a unique and intimate experience
Meet your guide and small group at the Nouvo City Hotel and travel by taxi or minivan to the starting point of your tuk-tuk tour of Bangkok. Board a three-wheeled auto rickshaw at Phra Arthit Road and head down the back streets of the bustling city toward the Amulet Market, your first stop.
Listen as your guide explains the significance of Buddhist amulets, charms and traditional medicines in Thai culture, before continuing on to Wat Pho, Bangkok’s oldest temple. Get a good look at the Reclining Buddha before traveling onward to Phahurat Market in the heart of Bangkok's little India.
Here, pore over stalls teeming with Indian textiles and ornaments along with snacks, which your guide can help you purchase (own expense).
You’re taken to Phra Sumera Fortress and the flower market at Dheves before you find yourself at Wat Saket, which dates back to the Ayutthaya era. If you wish, climb the 318 steps to the top of the Golden Mount for panoramic views of historical Bangkok.
Your tour concludes at the original departure point, where you guide can assist you in getting a taxi back to your hotel.
Viator Traveler's Reviews

Our guide is very attentive and passionate about her job , I have thoroughly enjoyed the tour , our driver is also lovely , very willing to help us when we need . Highly recommend this tour .
All was organised very efficiently by Viator and the local agent. Communication was great and it was very clear where I had to be and when. Pe-pae was a star. Very friendly, informative and organised. Very professional at all times. This tour was packed with great sights and experiences. I did more on this half-day tour than on a lot of 1 day tours. Definitely worth it. Please ensure that you dress appropriately well covered for the reclining buddha, as a sign of respect and also to ensure you can get in. This tour is a must!
Early and latter part of tour, which was more historical, context stuff more interesting than some of the walks through the Indian market particularly walk ended with a stroll around a discount clothing store. No problem with historical issue but unlike the flower/fruit and veg market that was vibrant and interesting, Indian market very much less so. Does however show little gems of Thai history and beauty in a part of 16 million strong throng of commerce and activity.
