Start with pickup at 8:30am or 1:30pm at your centrally-located Bangkok accommodations, then head into the Chinatown neighborhood to make your first temple stop of the day at Wat Traimit, often called the Temple of the Golden Buddha.
Beneath the gilded roof of the eye-catching main temple, you’ll find the largest solid gold Buddha image in the world, a 5.5-ton sculpture whose origins have been lost to history. From Wat Traimit, continue to the nearby Wat Pho, or Temple of the Reclining Buddha. Walk the full length of the 151-foot (46-meter) long Buddha image that's the longest in Bangkok, or light an incense stick by the Buddha’s inlaid, mother-of-pearl feet.
Head to the banks of the Chao Phraya River to see the Grand Palace, whose elegant stepped roofs are considered the height of classical Thai architecture. You’ll be following in the footsteps of the Chakri Kings as you tour the sprawling site; still a working palace, most of the interior is closed to the public, but the manicured grounds and palace temple are fascinating to explore.
Following your tour of the Grand Palace, this 3.5-hour tour concludes with drop-off at your Bangkok hotel.
