Know More about this tour

Begin your shore excursion of Bangkok at the Grand Palace, a must-see destination for all visitors in this fascinating city. Your guide will drive you by private, air conditioned vehicle to the Grand Palace, once the official home for the royal families of Siam, and take you on a private tour of the palace complex.

As you explore the Royal Funeral Hall and the Royal Coronation Hall, admire some of Thailands best examples of Buddhist sculpture and decorative art, as well as traditional Thai architecture mixed with European design.

Next, visit the ornately designed Wat Phra Kaew, Temple of the Emerald Buddha, a sacred Buddhist temple located deep within the Grand Palace grounds. Inside, be awed by Thailands most revered Buddha image, sculpted in the 14th century from a single piece of Jade to sit just over 2 feet (0.6 meters) tall in a magnificent shrine.

After a stop for lunch, your private guide will take you on a city sightseeing tour that includes three of Bangkoks 26,000 distinguished wats (temples). Visit Wat Traimit, Temple of the Golden Buddha, whose statue is made from solid gold weighing more than 12,000 pounds (5.5 tons). Learn how this fine example of Sukhothai-style art was discovered inside a layer of stucco plaster during construction of the temple.

Pass through Chinatown on your way to your next stop, Wat Pho, Temple of the Reclining Buddha Bangkoks largest and oldest temple. At 150 feet (46 meters) in length and 49 feet (15 meters) high, this Buddha is also the largest in Bangkok.

Afterward, visit Wat Benchamabophit, the Marble Temple, a magnificent monastery built from white Italian marble in the late 19th century, before your guide returns you back to the Bangkok port.
