Thailand, Bangkok day tour (1 day)

A Bangkok day tour with a difference! Thailand’s capital: bustling, dynamic, hectic, congested, often hot, sometimes smelly(!), but always fascinating, exciting and also sometimes picturesque! Plenty of adjectives apply to this unique sprawling Asian metropolis and our one day tour of the City is designed to show you both the famous sites as well as the parts other visitors don’t reach. No air-con tour buses here – we’ll throw you in Bangkok’s deep end with tuk-tuk rides, local ferries down the Chao Praya River, the hair-raising canal boats and on foot down alleyways too narrow for anything else to pass. Stop-offs will vary according to your preferences but sites en route include; the Grand Palace, fabulous Wat Phra Keow, (the ‘Temple of the Emerald Buddha’), Wat Phu, Chinatown, local markets, Lumphini Park, Siam Square and the fascinating Jim Thompson House Museum and perhaps finishing with a well deserved cocktail on the astonishing Khao San Road. (You might not want to stay there but you’ve got to see it!)
