Your immersion into Thai Buddhist culture takes you to three of Bangkok’s most famous temples, each of which offer something important to the religion and culture, on this 4-hour tour. Thailand is almost predominantly Buddhist and home to some 26,000 temples, making its capital city the ideal place to begin exploring the religion.

Start your adventure with Wat Trimit, considered the temple of the Golden Buddha because the statue is crafted from 5.5 tons of solid gold. An example of Sukhothai style art, the statue is 272 feet tall (3 meters). Next you’ll head through Bangkok’s Chinatown district to Wat Pho, the oldest temple and often referred to as the temple of the reclining Buddha. The largest Buddha in Bangkok, the statue is 46 meters long and 15 meters high and depicts Buddha passing into nirvana. The area is also home to the Chedis of the Kings.

Your last temple stop will be at the famous Wat Benchamabophit, constructed out of gorgeous white Italian marble from Carrara in the 19th-century. A friendly private guide will accompany you throughout the tour and offer a more intimate and personalized experience.
