Embark on a memorable day tour of Bangkok that takes you on a journey through the lush canals of Thonburi and culminates with an awe-inspiring experience at the Mahanakorn Skywalk.
The tour begins at noon when you’ll be picked up from your hotel by our knowledgeable local guide. They will serve as your key to unlock Bangkok’s hidden treasures, so feel free to ask as many questions as you’d like throughout the trip.
Your first stop is Thonburi, located on the west bank of the Chao Phraya River, which you’ll reach via a longtail boat. Thonburi is one of Bangkok’s last unspoiled areas, and you’ll have the chance to observe local life here where the canals serve as streets and small boats shuttle between houses. Take a deep breath and savour the greenery and fresh air that’s a stark contrast to the busy centre of the city.
You’ll then float past a floating market before arriving at Baan Silapin, a stunning teakwood artist’s house that’s now home to a museum and cafe. Depending on the day of the week, you may also have the opportunity to watch a traditional Thai puppet show. The next stop is Wat Prayun Wongsawat Worawihan, also known as Wat Prayun, a 19th-century temple complex built during the reign of King Rama III. Admire the white stupa, which once received a UNESCO Cultural Heritage Conservation Award of Excellence, and continue on to explore Khao Mo, a replica of a mountain temple surrounded by miniaturised architecture and a pond that’s home to a large number of turtles.
Once you have finished exploring the temple grounds, our final stop is the Mahanakorn Skywalk. The observation deck stands at 314 metres high and offers spectacular panoramic views of the city of angels. Stride confidently out onto the suspended glass floor if you’re brave enough, or sit back and relax while admiring the views in the bar with a beer or cocktail.
You’ll have the option here to stay and watch the sunset or head back to the hotel for 6pm. Regardless of what you choose, this day tour promises to be an unforgettable experience that showcases the best of Bangkok.
