What to Expect
Meet a driver at your hotel and then make the first stop of the day at the Grand Palace, a complex of buildings, courtyards, and temples that are still used by Thailand's royalty. Follow in the footsteps of Siamese kings and queens as you stroll through the funeral and coronation halls, and visit the Temple of the Emerald Buddha. Just next door is Wat Pho, among the city’s oldest temples, where you’ll find more than 1,000 images of the Buddha surrounded by shrines and sacred trees. From there, continue to Wat Traimit temple, where a solid-gold Buddha, hidden for centuries beneath a plaster disguise, was rediscovered in the 1950s. After a morning of royal Siamese architecture and Buddhist temples, this tour concludes with return transfer to your departure point.

Stunning palace and museum - it’s split into 2 parts the first the temples and the second the grounds and palace. They beautifully kept and well looked after. We went and saw the traditional dancers which is also included in the price.
