Overview

Thailand is predominantly a Buddhist country with around 95% of Thai's practicing the Theravada discipline of Buddhism. As you wander the streets of Bangkok it is not unusual to see monks adorned in their maroon and yellow colors walking along the road and it should come as no surprise as Thailand has over 26,000 Wat's (the local name for temple).

Know More about this tour

On this privately guided half-day tour you will visit three of the most famous wat's in Bangkok - Wat traimit, Wat Pho and Wat benchamabophit. A Wat is a Buddhist building where both men and women can be ordained as monks or nuns.

Wat traimit is also known as the temple of the Golden buddha. The 3 meter tall statue is made from solid gold and weighs 5.5 tons and is a fine example of Sukhothai style art.

You will then pass through Chinatown on your way to Wat Pho, the temple of the Reclining buddha. At 46 meters in length and 15 meters high the Buddha is the largest in Bangkok and illustrates the passing of the Buddha into nirvana.

Your last tour stop is at Wat benchamabophit, or the marble temple. This magnificent monastery was built out of white Italian marble from Carrara in the late 19th century.

Your tour will conclude at the Gems Gallery.

    This was a great half day tour. Going in the morning we beat the crowds. Our guide was very knowledgeable and may the morning very interesting. I would definitely recommend this tour.

    The overall tour felt very rushed. We saw three temples but didn't have sufficient time to fully experience the beauty of each one. This was our first tour of a three week trip in Thailand and is was a least favorite tour guide. Although she was friendly and contacted us in advance of our hotel pickup time, her overall knowledge of the temples we visited was limited. There was too much conversation about personal feelings regarding the country's current king. Not to mention personal stories and picture sharing of the guides cat.

    Well organized trip and our tour guide Han was very knowledgeable. I like when he gave cold bottled water after the temple visits as it helps us to feel comfortable due to heat .

    Our guide patiently waited for us as we fought Bangkok traffic to meet her. She showed us everything we wanted to see!

    We had read up about the tour and had a good idea of what we will see but we had no idea the Guide (Tiny) and the driver would be so great! The temples and the Reclining Buddha were beautiful and thanks to the guide (Tiny) we got a very good idea of the history associated with these. All in all it was a wonderful tour.

    Yelena (i think the tour guide was called) was excellent. Our car driver didn’t show up, but this did not stop her from giving me an excellent tour, we took a taxi to the first stop, and she explained the history behind each site wonderfully! As this was a private tour and I was by myself, she also offered to take photos of me with each surroundings, and each photo was great!

    A very interesting half day tour thanks to our charming tour guide Nine who guided us through three impressive temples and the beautiful Grand Palace.

    This tour is a perfect option if you don’t want to get up early in the morning and don’t want to waste the whole day in Bangkok only on one tour.
