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.

This was a wonderful experience. Our guide, Sara, provided wonderful information and shared so many sights with us. She also went above and beyond in helping me purchase a cell phone to use while I was in Thailand. Because our tour occurred the second day the palace was open, following the death of the King, we were able to truly appreciate her sensitivity in helping us to honor those who were mourning his passing. This tour enables the visitor to experience public transportation in Bangkok, while traversing large parts of the city in a short period of time. The Jim Thompson house is amazing, as were some of the street markets. ...a nice overview of the city.

We went in April during Thai New Year and were lucky enough to be the only people on the tour! Because of this we had a private tour of the city. Our tour guide Lin was funny, friendly and informative and even went out of her way to help us book train tickets for our plans later in the week. We opted for the Lumpini Park walk in the morning and were glad we did. We were only in Bangkok for six days so this tour was great for seeing so many sights in one day! We also avoided any unpleasantness such as people telling you the temples are closed/overcharging for transport which I have heard other people had experienced. Wonderful!

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.

We enjoyed this tour very much! Our guide, Mr. Egg, was fabulous! He told us a lot about each site we visited and offered extra things to do like the Thai massage that we enjoyed very much. Really fun tour to take in this beautiful city.
