Explore Bangkok by Skytrain and Boat

The best way to explore the marvellous City of Bangkok is "per pedes" by Skytrain and by Boat along the rivers.

We'll pick you up from your Bangkok hotel and get to the closest Skytrain station. From here we'll travel to Saphan Station by the river. The Bangkok Skytrain is a rapid transit system that stretches all around Bangkok, elevated in the air.

At Saphan Taksin station we'll proceed our journey by boat to the Tha Chang Pier which is just a short walk away from the Grand Palace.

The Grand Palace - Bangkok Tour

The Grand Palance is a complex of buildings in the heart of Bangkok that's been used as the official residence of the Kings of Siam since 1782. Within the grounds of the Grand Palace is the most sacred Buddhist Temple in Thailand - Wat Phra Kaew ("Temple of Emerald Buddha" in English). Here you'll see the statue of the Emerald Buddah, an amazing 26" tall dark green statue carved from a single jade stone. The King of Thailand changes the cloak around the statue three times a year, corresponding to the summer, winter, and rainy seasons, an important ritual performed to usher good fortune to the country during each season. The ritual has to be performed by the King as no-one else is allowed to touch the statue.

Rather than being a single structure, the Grand Palace is made up of numerous buildings, halls, pavilions set around open lawns, gardens and courtyards. Its asymmetry and eclectic styles are due to its organic development, with additions and rebuilding being made by successive reigning kings over 200 years of history

Wat Pho

After you've see enough of the Grand Palace we'll make our way to Pat Pho on Tuk Tuk, it's said everyone coming to Bangkok needs to try riding a Tuk Tuk at-least once, although for some once is enough!

Wat Pho, also known as "the Temple of the Reclining Buddha" is situated behind the Temple of the Emerald Buddha. One of the most famous temples in Bangkok, the Wat Pho hosts a massive 46meter long Buddha covered in gold leaf. There's also lots more to see at Wat Pho such as beautiful murals and the rest of the complex temple structure.

China Town Stop-off on Bangkok Tour

Bangkok's Chinatown is a vibrant and popular tourist attraction in the heart of Bangkok, every night after sunset the streets of Chinatown fill with people looking to try the fantastic street-cuisine.

Bangkok's Chinatown is an experience not to be missed, with its street-side restaurants, endless rows of wooden shop/houses and many shops.

Our Final Stop - Leng Noi Yee Temple

Wat Leng Noi Yi, or "The Dragon Flower Temple" is one of the most important sites in Thailand for the Chinese, dating back to 1871, the this Chinese-styled temple was built using donations scraped together from the residents of Sampaeng Lane

Inside the Temple you'll see a range of activities including fortune telling, merit-makign and regular services with worshipping at the three different altars for different religions - Taoist, Buddhist and Confucian. Also keep an eye out for the Chinese Thais making funeral offerings of burning paper cutouts of houses, cars, refrigerators and other symbols of financial success. By burning these, the deceased are ensured of having their creature comforts in the afterlife!

Return to your Bangkok Hotel

After a fantastic day seeing the best bits of Bangkok whilst avoiding the crippling traffic we'll return to your hotel via Skytrain or the Metro with a lot of memories that will stay with you forever.

Your Hotel must be located in downtown area, please speak to us if it's not.

Bangkok Tour Without Traffic Jam
As the tour says on the tin, the only way to explore Bangkok without sitting in traffic all day! An excellent excursion and in our opinion the best value for money tour of Bangkok.
Katie and Ian from Wendover - 19th Aug 2014
Bangkok Tour Without Traffic Jam
We went on 4 excursions in total with BangkokExcursions and they were all great fun, well organised and great value for money.

This was the first tour we went on and was a great introduction to the amazing city of Bangkok as we had never been before.

We saw all the main sights of the city by foot and on Tuk Tuk (which was so much fun, although a little crazy, especially with our driver!! - sorry we cant remember your name but thank you if you know who you are :) ).

The Grand Palace is beautiful, as is the the reclining Buddha and fascinating to learn about, this tour's a great way to get acquainted with the city in a way you perhaps wouldn't be able to do on your own.

Would also thoroughly recommend this tour
Darran and Susan from High Wycombe - 17th Mar 2014
