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.
