tour description

Wat Saket is easily recognized by its golden Chedi atop a fortress-like hill. The Golden Mount houses relics of Lord Buddha and affords visitors who climb its 318 steps a panoramic view of old Rattanakosin and the roofs of Bangkok from the top. From there we continue to the Monk's Alm Bowl Making Village. "Baan Batr" is the last existing place in Bangkok that still hammers out - by hand - the brass bowl that Buddhist monks carry with them during the morning alms round. Afterwards visit Pak Klong Talad, the biggest wholesale and retail fresh flower market in Bangkok. The majority of flowers found here are destined to be woven into "phuang malai" - garlands and used as offerings. Get onto a Tuk Tuk, a motorized rickshaws so named because of the sound of their engine and an unofficial national symbol of Thailand, and ride to Wat Pho - home to more Buddha images than any other Bangkok temple and sheltering one of the largest Buddha in Thailand. From the nearby pier, we take the public ferry and cross the mighty Chaopraya River to Bangkok's best known landmark, the enchanting Wat Arun (Temple of Dawn). Afterwards enjoy lunch in a local restaurant. In the afternoon, visit the serene temple complex of Wat Phra Kaew (Temple of the Emerald Buddha) and the Royal Palace. The Emerald Buddha is the National sanctuary of the country, where the devotion is closely associated with the welfare of the Royal family and nation. The jade statue has a set of three robes and three crowns according to the seasons. (Remark: Dress code applies).
