    Stop At: Temple of the Golden Buddha (Wat Traimit), 661 Chaoren Krung Road Talad Noi, Samphanthawong, Bangkok 10100 Thailand

    Offering this tour both in the morning as well as in the afternoon, our guide and driver pick you up from your hotel in Bangkok for 4 hours of getting an impression of the most stunning temples of Bangkok.

    Our tour commences at the temple with the invaluable Golden Buddha. Located in Bangkok’s thriving Chinatown district, Wat Trimitr (also called Wat Traimit) is best known as the home of the largest known solid gold Buddha image in the world. Standing at 15 feet tall and weighing in at approximately 5.5 tons, this 700-year old statue has an interesting history.

    Duration: 1 hour

    Stop At: Temple of the Reclining Buddha (Wat Pho), 2 Sanamchai Road. Prabarom Maharajawang, Pranakorn, Bangkok 10200 Thailand

    Driving through Chinatown, we arrive shortly at the grounds of Wat Po. This large and extensive temple neighbors the Grand Palace enclave and contains a gigantic gold plated Reclining Buddha, some 46 meters long and 15 meters high, with beautifully inlaid mother-of-pearl soles. Considered to be one of the worlds’ most famous temples, Wat Pho is also regarded as the first centre of public education and is sometimes called ‘Thailand’s first university’

    Duration: 45 minutes

    Stop At: Wat Benchamabophit (The Marble Temple), 69 Nakornpathom Rd Dusit, Bangkok 10300 Thailand

    Finally, we stop at Wat Benjamaborpitr or also called the White Marble Temple, one of the finest examples of Thai architecture and noted for its elegant white marble façade. Designed by the foremost Thai architect of the time, Prince Narissaranuwatwong, the temple was constructed of imported Italian marble. Inside the main chapel, is situated the country’s most captivating Buddha’s image.

    After this introduction to Thai Buddhist temples, we bring you back to your hotel.
