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.
