Itinerary:
Explore Bangkok like the local people using traditional transport to get to the heart of the city and must-see highlights. From the designated pick-up point you'll board the BTS skytrain and fly through the city to the shimmering Erawan shrine dedicated to the Hindu God of Creation where you'll learn of its unique history. Continue towards Pratunam and walk through the back alleys near San Saeb canal, stopping for a Thai chicken and rice meal known as khao man gai at Go-Ang. Take the San Saeb Khlong boat to Phanfa pier and trek up the winding stairs to the top of Wat Saket to visit the golden temple and take in the breath-taking panoramic view of Bangkok. Don't forget a camera! Continue by Tuk Tuk to Tha Tien market, famous for salted seafood and some interesting and strong smells. Then, take the ferry across to Wat Arun, the Temple of Dawn for a visit, and enjoy an authentic pad thai street food lunch while gazing at the mesmerizing 70 meter high spire. You'll then take a shuttle boat and Tuk Tuk to the Pak Khlong Talad flower market to admire the colourful tents and floral scents. This exciting day tour truly captures it all, ending back at the BTS station where you can return to your hotel by SkyTrain or explore the area more in-depth.
