Overview

Tour Bangkok exclusively by public transportation and experience the Thai capital from a different point of view!

Option 1: Early Morning Walk in Lumpini Park plus Full-Day TourYour guide meets you at your city hotel in the early morning for a walk to Lumpini Park. Take a stroll through Bangkok’s Central Park for an authentic glimpse of local life, and watch groups doing their morning exercises, including tai chi, yoga and aerobic dance. Enjoy the greenery, against a backdrop of skyscrapers in the heart of Thailand’s metropolis, before continuing your full-day tour by public transportation.' (See full-day tour option for details.)

Option 2: Full-Day Tour without Morning WalkIf you didn't rise extra early for your optional walk, meet your guide at your hotel in the morning. Start your day of sightseeing with a stroll to the nearest station of the Bangkok Mass Transit System, commonly known as the BTS or skytrain.

Your short ride by skytrain offers the best views of Bangkok’s downtown en route to the terminal station of Saphan Taksin, located on the banks of the Chao Phraya River. Here, board a public boat to Tha Thien pier where you disembark to visit Wat Pho, the temple of the reclining Buddha. Marvel at Bangkok’s largest Buddha statue, which reaches 150 feet (46 meters) in length.

Follow up with a visit to the Grand Palace, Thailand’s most famous royal monument that was once the official home of the kings of Siam. Housed within the ornate Wat Phra Kaew you’ll find the most revered Buddha image in Thailand: the Emerald Buddha.

Enjoy lunch (own expense) at a local restaurant near the palace before venturing on foot — or tuk tuk — to Soi Ban Batra, where a handicraft family is famed for the art making monk’s alms bowls and selling them. Then head back to Ratchadamnoen Avenue, a historic road referred to as the Thai Champs Elysées, where you’ll get in another tuk tuk to reach the historical klong, Saen Saeb.

Board the klong’s commuter shuttle for a boat ride across Bangkok to the west. Disembark for a short walk from the Ratchathewi boat station to visit the Jim Thompson House, a museum located in the former home of the Thai Silk Company's founder. The complex boasts six traditional Thai-style houses built of teak, and features a fine collection of arts and antiques.

After your visit, you’ll have the opportunity to stay and shop in one of the five large shopping complexes in the area — MBK, Siam Square, Siam Center, Siam Discovery and Siam Paragon — or simply return to your hotel by skytrain, accompanied by your guide.
