    What to Expect
    Meet your guide at your central Bangkok hotel, and hop inside your private, air-conditioned vehicle. Then, gaze at the bustling streets as you travel to your first destination: Wat Traimit (Temple of the Golden Buddha).

    Admire the elaborate exterior, and go inside with your guide to view its crowning glory: the world’s biggest solid-gold image of Buddha. Admire the 10-foot (3-meter) statue, hearing how it weighs 5.5 tons (4.9 metric tonnes) and was carved in the 13th century, during Thailand’s Sukhothai period.

    Next, drive through bustling China Town and past Bangkok's central flower market into Rattanakosin, the old city. Continue to a pier on the Chao Phraya River, and enjoy a scenic boat ride across the water to Wat Arun, known as the Temple of Dawn.

    View the striking temple, famous for its 259-foot (79-meter) pagoda-style spire, and head inside to see the golden Buddha image and murals in the main hall. Then, cast your eyes over the main spire, whose exterior is encrusted with intricate, colored glass mosaics and Chinese porcelain.

    Afterward, cross back over the river, and stroll through a vibrant market to Wat Pho, the Temple of the Reclining Buddha. One of Bangkok’s largest temples, this ornate complex was Thailand’s first public university, and a center for the teaching of astrology, medicine, and literature.

    View the chapels, murals, ceramic statues, and rare artifacts here, and admire the showpiece: a stunning 150-foot (46-meter) horizontal statue of Buddha, covered in gold leaf.

    Walk the statue's length, and feast your eyes on the mother-of-pearl decorations on its feet — in themselves measuring 16.4-feet (5 meters).

    Your tour then finishes with an early afternoon hotel drop-off.
