Overview

Hop into a three-wheeled Tuk Tuk and putt-putt through the bustling capital of Thailand. Visit Phra Sumer Fortress on on Phra Arthit (meaning "Sun" in Thai) Road, which was built during the reign of Rama I and is the largest of two extant structures from the 14 originally erected.

With three wheels and no doors, the tuk tuk is one of the most recognizable symbols of Southeast Asia, and is the most authentic way to explore Thailand!

Delve deeper into the significance of the mysterious items and their role in Thai Culture by visiting the Amulet Market , where various religious amulets, charms and traditional medicines are available. Your guide will explain how amulets are used to bring good luck or ward off evil in traditional Thai culture.

Proceed to the temple of Wat Saket, which sits at the bottom of an artificial hill grandly referred to as the Golden Mount. Your guide will lead you through the complex and up the 318 steps to the top of the Golden Mount, where you’ll have a 360-degree view of Rattankosin Island.

Continue riding the Tuk Tuk as you proceed to Phahurat Market, located in the heart of Bangkok's little India, where all varieties of fabrics, cloths, ornaments and accessories are sold alongside delicious subcontinental snacks. Any trip in Bangkok is not complete until you visit Pak Klong Talad, the biggest flower market in Thailand but is open 24X7.

Your next stop is the temple of Wat Pho, which was renamed Wat Phra Chetuphon in 1801. The temple is the spiritual center of the Buddhist religion in Thailand, and is distinguished by an enormous statue of the reclining Buddha. Your guide will take you through this fascinating 17th century temple complex and and acquaint you with the local stories about one of the most fascinating parts of Bangkok. This temple is one of those places that should not be missed when you travel to Bangkok!

Your trip ends here, explore the city on your own or join our guide for an optional lunch (payable direct). If you wish to return to your hotel, your guide will assist you in getting a taxi (cost not included).
