What You Can Expect

Bangkok in Motion: City Tour by Skytrain, Boat and Tuk Tuk

Bangkok in Motion: City Tour by Skytrain, Boat and Tuk Tuk

See Bangkok by public transport, starting your full-day sightseeing tour with pickup from your hotel. If you opt for a morning walk to Lumpini Park — aka Central Park — your guide picks you up one hour earlier; see locals doing their morning exercises in the park against a backdrop of skyscrapers in the heart of the Thai capital. 

From Lumpini Park or your hotel, follow your guide to the nearest BTS station for a short skytrain ride. View downtown Bangkok en route to Saphan Taksin station, located on the banks of the Chao Phraya River where you’ll board a public boat.

You’ll disembark the boat near Wat Pho, which houses the 150-foot-long (46-meter) Reclining Buddha. From here, walk to the Grand Palace, the official royal residence, and witness its revered Emerald Buddha housed in Wat Phra Kaew.

Take a lunch break at a nearby restaurant (own expense) before venturing on foot — or tuk-tuk — to Soi Ban Batra. Admire the monks’ alms bowls made by a handicraft family before you return on foot to Ratchadamnoen Avenue, often referred to as the Thai Champs Elysées. Hop inside another tuk-tuk to reach Saen Saeb klong for a commuter shuttle boat ride.

It’s a short walk from the Ratchathewi boat station to the Jim Thompson House, located in the former home of the Thai Silk Company's founder. Explore the art and antiques inside teak houses at the museum complex with your guide.

At the end of your Bangkok tour, take advantage of a shopping opportunity at one of five large complexes in the area — MBK, Siam Square, Siam Center, Siam Discovery and Siam Paragon — or simply return to your hotel by skytrain, accompanied by your guide.

What an amazing way to see Bangkok. Our guide Vicky was so lovely. She was very friendly and helpful. She gave us details and information on all the different parts of our tour. It was so special to be present at the grand palace and we felt privileged to be able to visit at such an emotional time for the Thai people. It went at our pace and it gave us confidence to tackle bangkoks transport on our own.
