BANGKOK HIGHLIGHTS IN ONE DAY
Full day visit Grand Palace, Wat Pho and Wat Arun with lunch by private car (for city hotel) / by private boat (for river hotel)
08.00 your guide will take you in a private car (for city hotel) / by private boat (for river hotel) to visit the three of the most attractive points of interest in Bangkok.
The Grand Palace, considered one of Bangkok's must-see attractions, and view the famous Emerald Buddha at Wat Phra Kaew. An intriguing blend of Italian Renaissance architecture and classical Thai roofing, the Grand Palace is one of the most beautiful examples of an ancient Siamese court, comprising several palaces and halls used for different occasions. Your guide will then take you to see Wat Phra Kaew(also known as the Temple of the Emerald Buddha) Bangkok's most important and sacred temple which proudly houses the elegant Emerald Buddha, Thailand's most revered religious image.
Continue (on tuk tuk for river hotel) to visit Wat Pho. Built by King Rama I almost 200 years ago, Wat Pho houses the gigantic reclining Buddha (or Phra Buddhasaiyas), a distinctive image 150 feet long and almost 50 feet high all covered in gold leaves. Wat Pho is considered the first center of public education and the cradle of traditional Thai massage, which is why it is sometimes called the "First University of Thailand".
Head to a nice local restaurant for Thai cuisine lunch.
After lunch, continue to one of Bangkok's most striking landmarks - Wat Arun, also known as the Temple of Dawn. Located on the south bank of the Chao Phraya River, this dramatic temple is notable for its architectural style and porcelain-decorated spires.
Return to your hotel around 15.00
Note: When visiting the Grand Palace and all temples, appropriate clothing must be worn. Mini skirts, shorts or tank tops are not allowed.
