tour details

Bangkok is home to many picturesque temples. Of these, the three most unique are Wat Traimit, Wat Pho, and Wat Benchamabophit. We’ll first visit Wat Traimit, where you’ll see its 3-metre tall Golden Buddha. Once hidden from robbers under a coat of plaster, it is now resplendent as a figure of solid gold. Next, we’ll explore Wat Pho, one of Bangkok’s oldest temples, and home of the largest reclining Buddha in Thailand. It also has the largest collection of Buddha images in the country. Finally, we’ll travel to Wat Benchamabophit, one of the most extravagant temples in the kingdom and an example of modern Thai architecture with its white Carrara marble, Thai motifs and European influence. Marvel at the splendour of the temple as you walk its beautiful courtyard with landscaped canals.
