No one can ever imagine Bangkok without a tuk-tuk, which has become one of the iconic images of the city along with its temples and skyscrapers. Not only can riding a tuk tuk be an interesting experience, but it's a practical way to get around some of the city's best sights! This tour will give you the chance to explore the brightest city gems!
You'll start your adventure by riding a tuk tuk from the very start. First up, the stunning Phra Sumeru Fortress, the largest fort of 14 forts built by king Rama I in the second half of the 18th century. Next, Amulet Market with its fantastic array of religious amulets, charms, talismans and traditional medicine. Your guide will explain the significance of all the mysterious items found there and tell you what part they play in Thai culture.
Your next destination is Wat Saket, a temple that lies at the foot of the Golden Mount. You'll climb up the 318 steps to the 360-degree view of the surrounding old Rattanakosin Island. Just around the corner is the small community of Ban Baat who have been making alms bowls for monks by hand since the late 1700s. You’ll hop back into your tuk tuk and head to Pak Khlong Talat, or the flower market. This is the biggest flower market in Thailand and is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Your last stop is Wat Po temple, the centre of the Buddhist religion in Thailand and the birthplace of Thai massage and medicines.
