Dear guests, on this day tour you will see the following:
The oldest market street in Bangkok;
Our licensed tour guide will be waiting for you either at the meeting point Sathorn Pier Saphan Taksin which we will inform you, or he will pick you up at the hotel depending on your booking.
Come with us on a very nice tour, experience a trip to one of the oldest streets in Bangkok which is fascinating and an experience for everyone. Monks are already early in the morning with their containers on the road and let people give them gifts. The gifts, be it money or food, are brought to the temple and then they eat together, after 12:00 monks are not allowed to eat anything, this is forbidden by the Buddhist faith. Almost at every house fresh produce is sold, here you can usually find everything that the Thais need for their kitchen to prepare the spicy dishes. Walk with us through the King's land also called Kings Poperty, which he gave to the poorer people. Here they have built their houses of teak and live in the old tradition in the extended family.
After we have visited the beautiful street market we go by van to the next sight a temple, which is unique in Bangkok. Here the artist has included everything, be it fantasy creatures or real people you know so. Wat Pariwat is a fascinating temple and unique that should make young people go to the temple. Walking around the building you will discover mythical Chinese and Indian gods as well as Japanese warriors and Buddhist figures, you will find almost everything from Disney characters to cowboys, Spiderman, pirates and much more, all beautifully crafted in detail. Wat Pariwat is off the tourist trail so you will see few tourists here. Even David Beckham was immortalized in the temple. It's really fun and whim to go around the building to always discover something new.
The ride continues, you will see the elephant monument with 3 heads, the symbol that expresses power and strength. The foundation stone was laid in 1994 and it took 10 years to complete. Here you will see a variety of historical things. The special thing about the building is that the elephant can be walked on. With a total height of 43.6 meters, it is a stately structure. The width of the elephant is 12 meters, and the length is 39 meters. It has a weight of 150 tons. Due to its special architecture, it is a unique museum of Thai antiquities. The main building consists of three levels. On the first floor (Badan) there are antiques of Chinese porcelain and an overview of the building. On the middle floor is the staircase area with many stucco works and statues. On the ceiling you can see a representation of the universe designed by the German Jakob Schwarzkopf. After this visit we will drive you back to the starting point.
