Welcome to Bangkok - the capital of Thailand. At around 08:00 a.m., your guide will pick you up at your hotel. Your Bangkok day tour will start with a morning walk through Pak Klong Talad, the largest fresh flower market in Thailand where you can see various kinds of flowers and flora like orchids, jasmine, gerbera etc. Strolling through the chaotic market, you will be embraced by endless aroma and colors. It will be a good experience to learn about the Thai flower culture.
Crossing the busy working market, we will venture into Klongs of Bangkok to see the sporadic temples with local architectural designs, and observe the lifestyle of the people living along the Bangkok's waterways. After the channels' sightseeing, we will set off to Wat Arun (the Temple of Dawn), one of the most impressive landmark soaring to the Bangkok's sky. Built in the Ayutthaya period (1351 to 1767), Wat Arun was dedicated to King Taksin and touted as the Eiffel Tower of Thailand. After the visit, your guide will suggest you some local restaurants for you to have your lunch.
After the lunch break, we will continue our Bangkok day tour and head to the Grand Palace, the biggest and best-preserved palace complex in Thailand. It was the residence of the Thai royals from King Rama I to King Rama VIII, and is still used as the center for royal ceremonies. Like a treasure trove of the Thai art, the Grand Palace is a perfect manifestation of the Thai painting, decoration art and architecture. It consists of 22 buildings, of which Hakri Maha Prasad, Dusit Maha Prasad, Amarin Winitchai Hall and Wat Phra Kaew are the most famous among tourists. You will see the finest combination of east and west architectures, the traditional Thai royal furniture and the well-known Jade Buddha.
If we still have leisure time, we will venture into the Amulet Market to see thousands of different holy trinkets like amulets, medallions, figurines etc. The market is always crowded with both locals and visitors who want to pick some talismans to wish a good luck, a good health and so on. It will be a good opportunity to learn about the religious culture of Thailand. Our Bangkok day trip will end at Wat Pho, also known as the Temple of the Reclining Buddha. The most famous attraction in this Thai temple is the massive reclining Buddha sculpture, which is 46 meters' long and 15 meters' tall. Covered with the gold leaf, the giant Buddha also has 108 auspicious patterns made of shell mosaics on his sole.
Friendly Notice: As serious occasions, the temple attractions and the Grand Palace require tourists to dress properly. Clothing covering shoulders and knees will be preferable.
After these visits, your guide will escort you back to your hotel. We wish you a memorable day trip from Bangkok!
