The first stop on your three-temple tour of Bangkok is Wat Triamit, known for housing the Golden Buddha, a 12,000-pound (5,500-kg) statue of Buddha made from solid gold. For nearly 200 years, the statue was covered in plaster to keep it hidden from plunderers, but today, you can admire it in all its glory.

Next, head to Wat Pho, aka the Temple of the Reclining Buddha. One of the biggest and oldest temples in Bangkok, Pho dates back to the 17th century and is home to more than 1,000 Buddha images in addition to the reclining statue, which measures 150 feet long (46 meters) and is covered in gold leaf. Wat Pho is also known for its traditional Thai massage school.  

Finally, visit Wat Benchamabophit, which features a combination of Thai and European architecture. This temple is famous for its construction out of Italian marble, including Carrara marble pillars. Your tour ends with a stop at the Gems Gallery, where you can browse the large collection of stones and jewelry. Perhaps you’ll find the perfect souvenir or gift to take home.

The guide made us meet at a hotel that was at least 30 minutes from our hotel so we had to get a taxi. Then they were an hour late. When we got there the guide was very disengaged and basically acted like a driver taking around town to some of the differant temples. Then when we got to the gem market, the guide walked us in and then without giving clear direction, LEFT US at the Gem Gallery without telling us that he had to leave to go do another tour. Apparently, we had a differant van that would take us to the mall after but that was not explained to us. My wife and I, another couple, and a young lady we were with were all confused and had to ask one of the gem gallary workers what we needed to do and where the hell our guide went. That being said, the Bangkok Temple with the Golden Buddha was really beautiful. The reclining Buddha was really great and the last temple we went to closed as we got it to because they were prepping something for the royal family. The attractions are worth it, I just hope you get a differant tour company then we had.

The tour was amazing. J.J. (two Js) was an incredibly nice guide. She explained everything with great patience and knowledge. We had time to explore on our own as well as getting useful information. We got lucky at the Marble Temple to witness a monk ordination and J.J. was again AWESOME!!
