Thailand is predominantly a Buddhist country, with around 95% of Thais practicing the Theravada discipline of Buddhism.

On this half-day guided tour you’ll visit three of the most famous temples Wats in Bangkok; Wat Traimit, Wat Pho and Wat Benchamabophit.

A Wat is a Buddhist building where men and women can be ordained as monks or nuns.

Wat Traimit is also known as the temple of the Golden Buddha. The three-metre tall statue is made from solid gold, weighs 5.5 tons and is a fine example of Sukhothai-style art.

Pass through Chinatown on your way to Wat Pho, the temple of the reclining Buddha. At 46m in length and 15m high the Buddha is the largest in Bangkok and illustrates the passing of the Buddha into nirvana.

Your last stop is at Wat Benchamabophit, or the marble temple. This magnificent monastery was built from white Italian marble from Carrara in the late 19th century and houses one of the country's most beautiful Buddha images.

At the end of the tour, you’ll be returned to your hotel.
