Discover some of Bangkok’s top cultural sights on a half-day tour of the Grand Palace, Wat Pho, and Wat Traimit. You’ll get a great overview of traditional Thai architecture from royal to religious, while beating the heat by traveling in a climate-controlled minivan. All entrance fees are included, along with convenient pickup and drop-off at Bangkok hotels.
What to Expect
Meet a driver at your hotel and then make the first stop of the day at the Grand Palace, a complex of buildings, courtyards, and temples that are still used by Thailand's royalty. Follow in the footsteps of Siamese kings and queens as you stroll through the funeral and coronation halls, and visit the Temple of the Emerald Buddha.

Just next door is Wat Pho, among the city’s oldest temples, where you’ll find more than 1,000 images of the Buddha surrounded by shrines and sacred trees. From there, continue to Wat Traimit temple, where a solid-gold Buddha, hidden for centuries beneath a plaster disguise, was rediscovered in the 1950s. After a morning of royal Siamese architecture and Buddhist temples, this tour concludes with return transfer to your departure point.

Depends how far away you are from the Palace, but with Bangkok traffic, typically an hour there, an 45 minutes in the Palace and an hour back. Half a day.
