Bangkok Temples Tour, Including Reclining Buddha at Wat Pho

Select Date and Travelers
2 travelers
Immerse yourself in the heart of Thai culture on a half-day Bangkok temple tour. Visit Wat Pho, known as the birthplace of traditional Thai medicine and healing, Wat Tramit with its beautiful solid gold Buddha and Wat Benchamabophit, one of the gems in Thailand’s temples, with ornate Italian marble carvings.
  • Discover Thailand’s spiritual traditions by visiting widely varied temples
  • See places where local people come to worship
  • Stay cool by exploring Bangkok in a climate-controlled vehicle
  • Convenient pickup and drop-off at selected hotels
What to Expect
Meet a driver at your Bangkok hotel and then board a climate-controlled vehicle to the Temple of the Reclining Buddha, the first stop of the day. This is one of the largest and oldest temples in Bangkok, with more than 1,000 images of the Buddha, and it’s considered by many to be the birthplace of traditional Thai massage. Here and throughout the tour, you’ll encounter traditional religious practices—take advantage of your time with a guide to ask about what you see. Next, continue to the Temple of the Golden Buddha, with a solid gold Buddha statue that was long hidden under a layer of plaster. The final temple you'll visit is the Marble Temple, where traditional Thai architecture gleams in white Italian stone. After a half-day of temples and shrines, this tour concludes with drop-off at the original departure point.
