Bangkok's Grand Palace Complex and Wat Phra Kaew Tour

Select Date and Travelers
2 travelers
Visit Bangkok’s Grand Palace and Wat Phra Kaew on a fascinating tour exploring highlights of the city’s royal and religious architecture. You’ll get a glimpse of the onetime home of Siam’s royal family, whose buildings blend Thai and European design. Then, enter the palace temple to see the Emerald Buddha, among Thailand’s most sacred relics. A local guide sharing detailed information about the sights, entrance fees, and convenient hotel pickup in an air-conditioned bus makes this tour an excellent value.
  • See two of Bangkok’s top cultural highlights: Grand Palace and Wat Phra Kaew
  • Visit rooms used for royal ceremonies and learn about Thailand’s religious rites
  • Convenient morning and afternoon departures available
  • Includes pickup in an air-conditioned bus at select Bangkok hotels
What to Expect
Meet a driver at your hotel in Bangkok and board an air-conditioned bus. Then, travel to one of the city’s most historic neighborhoods, where the Grand Palace stands near the banks of the Chao Phraya River. There, follow in the footsteps of Siamese kings and queens as you visit the Royal Funeral Hall and Royal Coronation Hall, grand spaces still used on ceremonial occasions. Enter Wat Phra Kaew, also called the Temple of the Emerald Buddha, to pay your respects to a historic Buddha that’s carved from solid jade. This tour concludes near the Grand Palace at the Gems Gallery, convenient to top sites, attractions, and restaurants in historic Bangkok.
