Half-Day City and Temples Tour, Including Grand Palace in Bangkok

Select Date and Travellers
US$ 55.00
2 travellers
This half-day tour combines 2 programs into half a day, showcasing 3 of Bangkok's famous temples and the Grand Palace, former home of the Kings of Thailand. This is a must do tour whilst visiting Bangkok.
  • Tour a pair of Bangkok's best temples and the royal Grand Palace
  • Admire giant Buddha statues at Wat Traimit and Wat Pho
  • Walk through the formal royal court of Siam
  • Hotel pick up and drop off included for a stress-free way to see Bangkok's top attractions
What to Expect
Choose from a morning or afternoon departure and get picked up from your central Bangkok hotel. Head straight to Chinatown for a stop at Wat Traimit, also known as the Temple of the Golden Buddha, to admire the gleaming statue that measures 15-feet (4.5-meters) tall and weighs 5.5 tons. Skip the stress of public transit and drive to Wat Pho, a famous Bangkok temple and site of a giant reclining Buddha stretching more than 150 feet (46 meters) with intricate mother-of-pearl inlays on its exposed feet. Then, continue to the banks of the Chao Phraya River and the remarkable Grand Palace. The royal seat of Siam for more than 150 years, the palace is still used for ceremonies and is a magnificent example of classical Thai architecture. You’ll be dropped off back at your hotel in time for lunch or dinner.
