Bangkok by day can be hot and sweaty, so why not wait until nighttime falls to explore the city? As the crowds disperse, you’ll get a new view of the Thai capital that many visitors miss. We’re taking you exploring by tuk-tuk and riverboat, just as the locals do. If you’re ready for an adventure, this is the trip for you...
With an action-packed itinerary in store, we’ll start by swinging by a few of Bangkok’s best-loved attractions. These include the Grand Palace and Wat Phra Kaew, also known as the Temple of the Emerald Buddha due to the enormous statue inside.
The only place to rival it is our next stop, Wat Pho. This ancient temple is home to over 1,000 Buddha statues, one of which measures more than 46 metres in length!
Next, we’ll see the sights along the Chao Phraya River as we board a traditional riverboat. Your guide will lead you to an authentic Thai market where you’ll tuck into a tasty local dinner.
After eating, we’ll explore bejewelled Wat Arun (Temple of Dawn) and Wat Rakhang Khositaram known as the Temple of Bells. As we stroll the banks of the river, we’ll check out Kuan An Keng Shrine, the Portuguese Santa Cruz Church and Wat Prayurawongsawas, three monuments of religious importance to the locals.
For the final treat of the tour, we’ll cross the river by bridge to reach Pak Klong Talad, the city’s largest flower market overflowing with garlands, bouquets, pot plants and fresh fruit. Whether you browse or pick up some fresh flowers to decorate your hotel room, this unique spot is a hidden gem in the capital.
