Know More about this tour

Meet your guide at the National Stadium BTS (Skytrain) station and walk to the Elephant Head Bridge to board a boat on Klong Saen Saeb, a canal that connects you to a district of the old city known as Pom Phra Satru Pai, translated as Fort to Defeat the Enemies. Your first stop is the Silver Pagoda, built during the reign of King Rama III for the princess granddaughter in 1846. The temple is best known for its 37 metal spires, signifying the 37 virtues toward enlightenment. Then it's off to the Golden Mount at Wat Saket, a pagoda situated on an artificial hill that commands a panoramic view of Bangkok.

Continue on foot to Bamrung Muang, Bangkok's first shopping street, which caters to temple supplies. Here, you'll find monks' robes, candles, incense sticks, and a variety of Buddha statues for sale. Down a small side street you'll reach Ban Baat, where handmade alms bowls are produced then purchased by devotees and donated to monks.

Arriving at the Giant Swing, learn about its 18th-century construction and symbolic significance, then stroll through the prominent royal temple of Wat Suthat. Next, hop aboard a motorized tuk-tuk for a ride to Wat Pho, home to the first school of medicine in Bangkok and the Reclining Buddha. 

Finally, head to a nearby Thai massage school where you'll receive a 30-minute foot massage, effective in stimulating the functions of the internal organs. Once you are relaxed, it's time for a boat ride down the Chao Phraya River, before you connect to a Skytrain back to the meeting point.

  • We really enjoyed this trip, even despite the heat and humidity, the guide that was provided was amazing.

  • We did so much different stuff, but this tour still felt relaxed and nicely paced. Maybe it was just a result of being the only one taking the tour that day, but It felt more like enlisting a friend to take me to all her favourite places. A really pleasant way to spend the morning.

  • Touring Bangkok like a local! Mr Moo was a great guide, taking us walking around the streets where the locals shop for their daily needs. Enjoyed touring several temples and monuments. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and enjoyed listening to his explanations of the culture and religion of Thailand. We really enjoyed the provided lunch at a small local B and B and then went off for a relaxing massage at the end of our tour.

  • Kat was the best tour guide---totally accommodating , great knowledge and so sweet!

  • A highly recommended trip, a great way to experience some of the probably less visited places and riding in klong boats is always a lot of fun. Had some great food along the way too. The foot massage is not for the feint hearted and much stronger than what you'll encounter in the street, but you'll come out feeling better for it if you survive! I was the only one on the tour that day and my guide, Kat, was very helpful and insightful. Great if you like experiencing places on foot or via local travel means.

  • Two guests one guide!!!! Would recommend as you received lots of local information and saw some great temples without the crowds .Used local river transport. Our first attempt at street food was good.
