Duration: Half Day (9 AM – 12 PM and 1 PM – 4 PM)
- 9 AM
- Meet in your hotel lobby and head towards Rattanakosin Island, Bangkok’s predecessor and historic district.

- Next we will visit the Golden Buddha of Wat Trimit, a temple. This Buddha weighs in at more than five tons and is a vision in gold. After our visit with the Golden Buddha, we’ll pass through the Chinatown area as well as the beautiful flower market. Chinatown is a great place to pick up gold jewelry and souvenirs. At night time, the whole scene changes as food stalls appear and people crowd the streets – it’s a wonderful place to visit if you have a chance. Next on our tour, we will visit Wat Pho or the Temple of the Reclining Buddha. It’s one of the oldest temples, and has more than a thousand images of Buddha, including a huge reclining Buddha that is 46 meters long and 15 meters high. This temple also served as one of the first universities, teaching the arts of literature, astrology, medicine and massage. Next on the agenda will be Wat Benchamabopit or Marble Temple, a more modern temple and great example of modern Thai architecture built with Carrara Italian marble, complete with religious imagery and white marble lions. Next we’ll take a stroll down the Royal Way, Ratchadumnoen Road for some city sightseeing.

We’ll even see the Boxing Hall.
