Whether you’re a culture lover or a fan of colourful, photogenic spots, you’ll be blown away by the Bangkok temple scene. Unlike the crumbling religious shrines overgrown with tree roots found at Ayutthaya, the temples of Bangkok are well-preserved and architecturally splendid. With this small group temple tour, we’ll tour the most Instagrammable places in Bangkok, including:
Wat Saket: Dating back to the 13th century, the Temple of the Golden Mount is as popular with travellers as it is with devout locals. A gleaming 58-metre tall chedi stands at the heart of the temple, visible from miles away. An iconic view for your Bangkok bucket list!
Wat Pho: Characterised by its colourful mosaic shrines and a 46-metre long Reclining Buddha statue, this is one of the most visually impressive temples in Bangkok, not to mention the oldest. This vast religious site home to almost 400 Buddha statues – but will you find them all?
Wat Arun: We’ll finish our Bangkok temple tour by jumping aboard a riverboat and cruising to the Temple of Dawn. An enormous white chedi decorated with thousands of colourful mosaic designs stands at the heart of this 300-year-old temple site. For a temple so beautiful it has to be seen to be believed, Wat Pho is the Instagram spot in Bangkok!
