Highlights
    What to Expect
    Meet your guide and small group at the Nouvo City Hotel and climb aboard a three-wheeled auto-rickshaw, or tuk-tuk, for your tour of Bangkok. Head down the back streets of the bustling city to Phra Sumera Fortress and Amulet Market.

    Listen as your guide explains the significance of Buddhist amulets, charms and traditional medicines in Thai culture, before continuing on to Wat Saket, also known as the Golden Mount, which dates back to the Ayutthaya era. If you wish, climb the 318 steps to the top of the Golden Mount for panoramic views of historical Bangkok.

    Onward to Phahurat Market in the heart of Bangkok's Little India. Here, pore over stalls teeming with Indian textiles and ornaments along with snacks, which your guide can help you purchase (own expense).

    Visit Pak Khlong Talad, Bangkok’s 24 hour flower market where you’ll see vendors with huge piles of jasmine garlands, orchids and lotus flowers used in traditional Thai worship.

    Your final stop is Wat Pho, home to the largest reclining Buddha image in Bangkok, Wat Pho was the country’s first public university and still functions as a center of learning for traditional Thai massage and medicines.

    From here, you can continue exploring on your own or your guide will assist you in getting a taxi back to your hotel.
