Overview
Set off on a journey to experience the city like locals as you travel by boat, heading to Bangkok’s old city, or Rattanakosin. Along the way, you will be entertained with insider stories of Bangkok’s landmarks. Arriving at the old city area, you will visit some of our favourite, must-see temples: The Grand Palace and Wat Pho and marvel at the unique and beautiful style of Thai temple architecture. Your guide will return you back to the original meeting point at the end of the tour. Please note: Long pants and short or long sleeve shirts are required for entry to the Royal Grand Palace and the Temple of the Emerald Buddha. Tank tops are not allowed. Proper footwear is also required.  Sandals are ok with something around the heel, but flip flops are not allowed. Sunscreen, sunglasses and a hat are never a bad idea for Bangkok weather!

We were all over Thailand and this tour was still one of our favorites! Bella knows her stuff! She knows her history but she also knows the times to be at certain places to avoid the crowds and where and when to stop for food to cool off. This tour exceeded all expectations
