Stop At: The Grand Palace

Marking the centre of the city, and surrounded by universities, the Grand Palace is the largest and most outstanding complex in Bangkok. It is the former home of the monarchy - a national symbol and treasure for Thai people. The Grand Palace was built in 1782 when King Rama I moved the capital city from Thonburi to Bangkok. As new kings came to power over the years, new buildings were built, unlike other palaces, all of these buildings are separate, as opposed to extending over the years.

Duration: 2 hour

Stop At: Wat Phra Chetuphon

Officially named Wat Prachetuphon Vimon Mangkararam, Wat Pho served as The Royal Temple of Chakri Dynasty King Rama I. Wat Pho was founded during the 16th century and is one of the most visited Buddhist temples in Bangkok. In the main ordination hall is the sacred 46-meter Reclining Buddha with beautifully inlaid mother-of-pearl feet. Among Thai people, Wat Pho is known as “the nation’s first public university". There are 1,360 marble inscriptions of medical, historical and liberal sciences placed all around the temple. The marble inscriptions of medical sciences, anatomy and orthopaedics are the origins of Thai traditional massage principles, which has made Wat Pho a world famous site as the home of Thai massage.

Duration: 1 hour

Stop At: Temple Of Dawn (Wat Arun)

Named after the Hindu God Aruna, Wat Arun is on the banks of the Chao Praya River. It's locally referred to as Wat Chaeng. A temple has been at this very location since the Ayutthaya Kingdom which began in the 12th century, then Wat Makok. In the early 18th century it housed the Emerald Buddha before it was transferred to Wat Phra Kaew. Wat Arun is often referred to as the "Temple of Dawn", its main stupa (prang), contrary to all other temples in the city, is built in a Khmer-style, emblazoned with porcelain gems, on top is a seven-pronged trident, which is referred to as that of Shiva. The 'prang' is symbolic of Mount Meru, a sacred five-peaked mountain that is a central focus point in Buddhist and Hindu cosmology as the connection between the physical, metaphysical and spiritual universe.

Duration: 1 hour

Stop At: Temple of the Golden Buddha (Wat Traimit)

Neighbouring Bangkok's Chinatown, Wat Traimit is home to the revered Golden Buddha, a 5.5-ton statue that dates back to the Sukhothai period. It is believed that after the fall of Ayutthaya, the statue was plastered to hide its true value and prevent it from being stolen. In retrospect, this was incredibly effective, the gold that lay underneath was forgotten about for nearly 200 years. The statue became the central feature of Wat Traimit after a nearby temple fell into a state of disrepair, as its true value was still unknown, the statue was kept under a tin roof because the temple was too small to house it. In 1955, during an attempt to move the statue to a new building the statue fell, chipping part of the plaster to reveal the gold that was hidden underneath. At that point, the move was ground to a halt. The statue was in 9 parts that fit perfectly together, screwed into place with a key that was set into the plaster. Having been found so close to 25th Buddhist era, it is believed that this was a holy wonder, a miracle. The Golden Buddha is greatly respected, for this reason, and because it is possible that it was mentioned in the ancient inscriptions of King Ramkhamhaegn Great; Sukhothai Inscription No.1. The text describes the ancient capital of Sukhothai, with a great golden Buddha statue that was in the heart of city.

Duration: 1 hour

Stop At: Chinatown - Bangkok

Bangkok's Chinatown is one of the largest Chinatowns in the world. It was founded in 1782 when the city was established as the capital of the Rattanakosin Kingdom and served as the home of the mainly Teochew immigrant Chinese population, who soon became the city's dominant ethnic group. The streets are filled with colourful markets, lanes crammed with tiny shops, traditional drug stores and many temples making this the perfect place to wander around and explore. The main area is centred around Yaowarat road and is where the original Chinese settlers moved to and here you'll have a chance to see how they live today among the Thai people of Bangkok.
