Private 'Venice of the East' tour and Two Temples
- Duration: 4 Hours (approx.)
- Product code: PGJ0RA
Whilst the city's usual icons are tuk-tuks and congested roads, its waterways are the truest symbol of identifying the city.
Today, many of the klongs have been filled in and paved over to make room for roads, but a massive network of waterways still criss-crosses the city. Each day, thousands of commuters travel by motorized boat on the canals.
In this morning tour you, be collected at your hotel and taken to the Chao Praya River, also known as the River Of Kings. Travel by traditional long-tailed motorboat exploring the klongs and witnessing the communities that still live on them. Although right in the heart of the modern metropolis, you'll immediately be amazed by the stark contrast to the frenetic pace you left behind. You will pass by the spectacular Wat Arun, the Temple of Dawn.
Next, step ashore for a visit to one of Bangkok oldest and most well-known temples. Wat Po is more commonly known as the Temple of the Reclining Buddha. It is the largest in Thailand measuring more than 150 feet in length. Truly mesmerizing, it is top on the list of six temples in Thailand classed as the highest grade of the first-class royal temples.
Then ride through the city streets to Wat Traimit, a temple whose gilded exterior houses the world's largest solid-gold Buddha statue.
