Description

Spend a day discovering 3 of the grandest and most enigmatic temples in Bangkok. See the solid-gold Buddha statue at the Golden Buddha temple, wonder at the fusion of Thai and European architecture at the Marble Temple, and visit the reclining Buddha at the largest and oldest temple in the city.

After you're picked up from your hotel, visit the temple of Wat Triamit to see the gleaming, 12,000-pound (5,500-kg) solid gold statue of Buddha housed within. Covered in plaster for centuries to disguise it from plunderers, the Golden Buddha went unnoticed for more than 200 years before being restored in a grand, new temple.

Next, head to Wat Benchamabophit, known as the Marble Temple thanks to the white Carrera marble imported from Italy to form its pillars and walls. The century-old temple reflects a more modern Thai temple architecture and a fusion with European style.

A short drive away, the giant reclining Buddha rests in the temple of Wat Pho. The oldest temple in Bangkok, dating back to the 17th century, Wat Pho houses more than 1,000 Buddha images in addition to the huge reclining figure, which is over 150 feet (46 m) in length and 49 feet (15 m) high.

Wrap up your experience with a stop at the Gems Gallery, where you can check out the precious stones on sale, before a ride back to your hotel brings your tour to an end.
