Explore life in Bangkok, past and present, during this full-day tour that includes a boat ride along the Chao Phraya River and visits to the temple of Dawn, the Grand Palace and Emerald Buddha Temple.

Upon arrival at River City Pier in Bangkok, you’ll embark a boat for a ride along the bustling Chao Phraya River and its canals, or klongs. Along the way, you’ll take in picturesque scenes and photo opportunities of typical Thai canal life. Stop for a visit of the magnificent Wat Arun (Temple of Dawn) before proceeding for lunch at a local restaurant. Standing at the river’s edge, it is one of the most beautiful and best-known temples in the city.

Drive to the Grand Palace and Emerald Buddha Temple, one of the most beautiful examples of an ancient Siamese court. The Grand Palace, former residence of the Kings of Thailand, is now reserved for royal ceremonies and state occasions. During your visit to the Palace compound, you’ll admire the magnificent Royal Chapel and view Wat Phra Kaew, the Emerald Buddha, Thailand's most sacred Buddha image.
