Expat Holidays Thailand

Bangkok Multi Transport Tour

Bangkok is famous for all the different types of local transport. Rather than going around in a car, this private, guided tour gives you a chance to explore all the must-see sights in the city using the various transports such as sky train, canal boat, long tail boat and of course the famous Thai tuk tuk.

During this tour you’ll visit the Grand Palace, Emerald Buddha Temple, Reclining Buddha Temple Wat Pho, Jim Thompson’s House and Temple of the Dawn Wat Arun.

This is our most popular day tour in Bangkok and we highly recommend it, especially to first-time visitors to the city.

Itinerary

9:00AM / pick up at your hotel - jim thompson's house
Your guide will meet you at your hotel or a pre-arranged location. We start by taking the sky train to Jim Thompson's house. The house, now a museum, is a former home of James H.W Thompson who was the founder of world renowned Jim Thompson Thai Silk Company. Tour the house and learn about its history, Thai architecture and silk.
10:30AM / san seab canal boat to golden mount temple
Travel by San Seab canal boat to Wat Saket, also known as Golden Mountain Temple. This mode of transport is mostly used by locals. You'll be amazed at how these boats navigate the narrow canal while the ticket collectors walk around the outside of the boat, hanging on to ropes. Have a coffee or a refreshment before continuing your journey.
11:00AM / wat phra kaew and grand palace
Next mode of transport is the famous Thailand Tuk Tuk which we take to the most famous temple in Thailand – Wat Phra Kaew, or the Emerald Buddha Temple. We will also tour the Royal Grand Palace.
12:30PM / lunch
Your guide will suggest a great local restaurant for lunch based on your preference.
1:30PM / wat pho, the reclining buddha temple
After lunch, proceed to visit Wat Pho, the temple of the reclining Buddha. This will be within walking distance.
2:30PM / Canals tour by long tail boat
After Wat Pho, board the famous Bangkok long tail boat for a 1 hour canal tour. You can observe the way of the locals who live around these canals and your guide will point out interesting places you pass by.
3:30 / Wat Arun, temple of the dawn
Canal boat will finish at Wat Arun, also known as the temple of the dawn. If you feel up to it we highly recommend climbing the stairs to the top for a beautiful, panoramic view of the Chao Phraya River.
4:00PM / transfer back to your hotel
Last mode of transport for the day will be the local river boat taxi, which will take us to the sky train for transfer back to the hotel.

Testimonials

  • Lenny and his team were outstanding. He worked with our schedule and needs perfect and made great suggestions that added to our trip. Every tour we were set up on was amazing and they guides were so friendly, knowledgeable and punctual. This is the first vacation that not 1 single thing went wrong/no details were missed. Lenny was available to answer any questions – big or small- while we were abroad and it was a very nice and secure feeling knowing you are in a different land with someone looking out for you. I travel often, but This is my first review for any service like this and I am doing it because I am so happy and grateful that I used this company!!

    Angela Braganini – luxury trip around Bangkok, Chiang Mai & Phuket
  • This was, by far… the best trip I have ever taken in my whole life and I feel like I owe much of this to Lenny and his outstanding team of professional tour guides. This was a mother daughter trip commemorating my 60th birthday and I will NEVER forget it. It was actually my daughter who booked the trip through Lenny after reading the rave reviews from other travelers and he did not disappoint! NOT ONE SINGLE HICCUP throughout the trip!!!. How many times has anyone actually been able to say that while on a vacation, much less, traveling out of the country?? First class all the way! We traveled to Bangkok, Chang Mai and Phuket. The hotels were amazing, the tours were fabulous. Tour guides were friendly and knowledgeable and spoke wonderful English…not to mention punctual. Lenny pre-arranged all the tours and flights within Thailand. In Bangkok, we did the street food tour, Railway Market,Floating Market and Wat Pho Temple tour. In Chiang Mai, we did the home tour and cooking class in Lanna, the Elephant Valley Sanctuary and had a tranquility spa package at Cheeva Spa. In Phuket, we did the John Grays Sea Cave Tour…I would recommend all of these…they were all 5 star worthy… if not more. Transportation was always provided in a comfortable, air conditioned vehicle. On one evening in Bangkok, Lenny made a recommendation for dinner at Tea-licious and made our reservations for us. He was easily reached on WhatsApp ( reaches out and recommends this before arrival) and was always quick to respond and help in any way. I will sing his praises and recommend him to anyone considering a visit to Thailand or other countries in Asia for that matter since his services are not limited to Thailand. In fact, I’ll go so far as to say, if you don’t use Lenny from Expat Holidays, you’re crazy! Friends and family expressed concern of two women traveling alone in Thailand but I never felt safer..wherever we went. Thank you Lenny for a great and once in a lifetime vacation. I hope to one day need your services again!

    Nancy and Amanda – mother & daughter trip to Thailand
  • I was hesitant to take my three daughters to Thailand without my husband’s help. However, Lenny and his staff were absolutely amazing from the moment I started planning the trip, until the day I came home. I truly felt as if they were right there beside me, helping and guiding me the whole time. I contacted Lenny and his staff on several occasions while in Thailand and they’re responsiveness and helpful guidance were remarkable. Lenny took the time to understand our priorities and effectively personalised our itinerary accordingly. It was a wonderful vacation with very well planned activities and knowledgeable guides. I cannot recommend Expat Holidays Thailand highly enough!!

    Lattie Louah – mother & daughters Thailand trip
  • My husband and I have been living in SE Asia for 3.5 years and have used Lenny’s services on many occasions! From a night in Bangkok, to Laos, Cambodia and Vietnam, to arranging everything for a trip for my in-laws, he’s been able to manage it all quickly and efficiently! He is very thorough and provides clear details that ensure you have a magnificent experience. I tell everyone I know about Lenny and his services! I highly recommend getting in touch with him to plan your next SE Asia trip!

    Laurie Ranz, expats based in Bangladesh
  • Thank you Lenny and team for making our trip to Thailand so memorable! All the transfers and tours were exactly as described and we felt at ease the whole trip knowing your team were working away making sure we enjoyed it. Thanks for all the recommendations and especially the elephant tour, definite highlight! We’ve already passed your details to others because we know our friends and family will be in good hands when booking their trips through you. Thank you again for taking such good care of us!
