Bangkok City Tour
Explore some of the iconic sites hidden backstreets and local markets of this sprawling, sometime chaotic but ever fascinating Asian metropolis
Bangkok city tour with a difference
A unique Bangkok city tour with a difference. An exploration of Thailand’s famous capital: bustling and vibrant, hectic and congested but always fascinating, exciting and also often picturesque! Plenty of adjectives apply to this sprawling Asian metropolis and our one day tour of the City is designed to show you the famous sites as well as the parts other visitors don’t usually 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 Phraya River, the hair-raising canal boats and on foot down alleyways too narrow for anything else to pass. Stops will vary according to your preferences, but sites en route could include the Grand Palace, fabulous Wat Phra Keow, (the Temple of the Emerald Buddha), Wat Phu, Chinatown, local markets, Lumphini Park and Siam Square. 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!)
Last but certainly not least, you’ll have the chance to meet some of the City’s friendly residents as well as checking out the world-renowned cuisine including the fabulous street food – some of which is even Michelin starred!
This Bangkok city tour is obviously included in any of our Thailand itineraries though bear in mind that the Thai capital’s central location and transport hub role mean that there’s a fair chance you’ll be passing through the city anyway (or at least its airport) from any of the neighbouring destinations such as Laos, Cambodia or Vietnam. Squeeze the most value out of your airfare so why not pop in for a day or two after your Khmer temples or Lao mountains?
Our price is based on 2 persons while for a single person private tour the cost is £115. Extra nights’ accommodation in Bangkok is also available should you require it.
Here's an idea of what you can expect to do and see day-to-day.
Day 1 - Bangkok
Morning kick-off around 8 a.m. from any centrally located hotel. Starting points for your tour obviously vary depending upon your hotel location but our approximate route goes from the Banglamphu district to the Grand Palace on foot or by tuk-tuk, followed by a taxi boat down river past Chinatown, Little India and Pak Klong wholesale market to Thaksin Bridge where we connect to the Skytrain. The overhead railway takes us along Silom and past Lumphini Park to the City’s commercial heart of Siam Square from where a canal boat cuts through the downtown area taking us back to our starting point in Banglamphu.
As mentioned, stops en route are flexible and the tour can start or end at any point along the itinerary.
Approx. 8.00 a.m. to 4.30 p.m.
