Half Day
Meals Included


Jump aboard an environmentally-friendly variant of one of Thailand’s iconic tuk-tuks for a spin around Bangkok on a morning tour to take in the Grand Palace, a temple, and the area surrounding Bangkok’s intriguing giant swing statue.

We’ll pick guests up around 08:30 and head straight to Wat Suthat Thepwararam. This fantastically ornate temple holds its status as the highest-ranking royal temple in the capital.

Take time to admire its elegant architecture, its grand praying hall with its vast sweeping roof, and the intricate, magnificently sweeping murals.

Immediately out the front of the temple, visitors will see the giant swing. The Giant Swing, with its two towering pillars, is one of the immediately recognisable symbols of Bangkok and has its own complex story to uncover. Our guide will explain the backstory of this odd-looking monument.

The area around the Giant Swing is known as a hotspot for delicious street food. We’ll explore the market for the opportunity to try some tasty Thai snacks.

Finally, we’ll jump back in the tuk-tuks to visit Bangkok’s famous riverside Grand Palace. This sprawling complex of buildings in the heart of Bangkok has been the official residence of the Kings of Siam since 1782.

Today, it’s used mainly for ceremonial purposes as visitors are allowed to explore the grounds and admire the mix of old Bangkok-style architecture combined with European influences. Its most famous attraction is the hall of the Emerald Buddha, an important pilgrimage site for Buddhists.

The tour concludes at around noon and visitors are free to explore for the rest of the day.
