Description

Start by downloading the Action Tour Guide app, which will function as your personal tour guide, audio tour, and map. Purchase one tour per car, not per person. Everyone listens together! Note: This 1+ mile-long tour covers the essentials of Bangkok Bundle in 2-3 hours. This tour bundle includes tours of: The Grand Palace, Wat Pho, Wat Arun, and Wat Traimit. At the Grand Palace, you will find some of the most-photographed architecture in all of Thailand. The soaring pagodas, temples, and halls are sure to inspire awe in any visitor! The palace is also home to Wat Phra Kaew, the Temple of the Emerald Buddha. One of Thailand’s most famous Buddha statues, this historic artifact is small but mighty, standing out among its many golden siblings. As you tour the palace grounds, you’ll hear all about the Kings of Siam and the complex history of Thailand’s rulers through the ages. Wat Pho, or the Temple of the Reclining Buddha, is considered one of the holiest sites in Thailand. That’s thanks to the Reclining Buddha himself, who you’ll see immediately upon entering the temple. At 150 long and 50 feet high, this statue is impossible to miss! It depicts parinirvana, or the moment the Buddha died and ascended to Nirvana. But this temple is much more than just one sculpture! As you explore, you’ll also see a Bodhi tree like the one the Buddha meditated under, four huge royal pagodas, a scripture hall containing some of the Buddha’s earliest writings, and much more! Wat Arun, also called the Temple of Dawn, is the oldest temple in all of Bangkok. The most famous sight you’ll see here is the breathtaking Ordination Hall, a deeply sacred place dominated by an immense golden Buddha. As you tour, you’ll learn a whole lot about the history of Buddhism and its importance in Thailand. You’ll even see what many believe to be a replica cast of the Buddha’s footprint! To make your trip even better, Wat Arun stands high above the city, offering unbeatable views of Bangkok’s skyline. Wat Traimit, the Temple of the Golden Buddha, houses one of Thailand’s most fascinating artifacts. The Golden Buddha itself is a 5-ton statue made of solid gold which was almost lost to the sands of time! Unearth this riveting history as you admire the statue up close. Then, you’ll move on to Bangkok’s Chinatown district, one of the largest and most impressive in the entire world! You’ll walk down the storied Yaowarat Road, past stall after stall of mouth watering street food, and your tour will give you pointers about the very best places to eat while you’re there! You’ll also see how the Chinese population has influenced Thai Buddhism at Wat Mangkon Kamalawat before moving on to the bustling marketplace of Sampeng Lane. If you want to get a proper dose of Bangkok culture, this is it!
