Who is this tour for? This tour is for first-timers in Bangkok who want to see the main highlights and a few off-the-beaten-track sights.

Book Now

The perfect introduction to Bangkok, this tour takes in both the hidden world of Bangkok’s backstreets and the glittering world of its grandest temples. I will meet you in the lobby of your hotel and then escort you to Chinatown, where you’ll see busy markets, bustling streets and atmospheric Chinese temples. You’ll then head to the Temple of the Emerald Buddha/Grand Palace. Known as Wat Phra Kaew in Thai, this is the most stunning sight in all of Thailand. After a traditional Thai lunch, you’ll visit Wat Po, the awe-inspiring Temple of the Reclining Buddha. At the conclusion of the tour, I will esort you back to your hotel. If you’re staying on the river, I will give you the option of returning to your hotel on a river express boat or a private long-tail “James Bond boat.”

This tour takes about six hours, and we recommend starting at 9:00am.

I will meet you at your hotel and then escort you by private vehicle or public transport to the start of the tour: Wat Traimit, better known as the Temple of the Golden Buddha. This interesting temple is missed by many visitors to Bangkok, who focus on the more famous temples by the river. Next, you will make your way to the famous Bangkok Flower Market (Pak Klong Talad), which is a feast for the senses and a photographer’s paradise. Finally, you will walk to a pier on the Chao Praya River and board a small “longtail” boat and take a one-hour tour of the canals (klongs) on the east side of the river. You will have the boat all to yourselves (we do not share boats with other passengers). At the conclusion of the tour, I will return you to your hotel.

This tour takes four hours, and we recommend starting at 9am or 1pm.

  • The total tour price is $150 USD for 1 to 6 people.

I will meet you in your hotel and escort you to Bangkok’s superb Or Tor Kor Market, the best food market in all of Southeast Asia. If you are a fan of tropical fruit, this place will seem like paradise to you. There’s also a great selection of stalls selling prepared food, and this is a great introduction to Thai street food. You’ll then head down to Chinatown just as the many street stalls are opening for the evening. I will stop with you at a few choice stalls to sample the offerings. Finally, if you’ve still got room to eat, I will bring you to a great Chinese seafood restaurant, help you order and then leave you to enjoy your meal (of course, if you prefer, I can escort you back to your hotel.)
