What you'll do

After meeting together, we will explore Bangkok temples by looking at its architecture. For the first temple, we will go to The Temple of the Emerald Buddha and Grand Palace. You will see the variety of Thai style architecture that relates to Buddhist belief in this place.

Around noon, you can enjoy your lunch at Tha Maharaj pier nearby Chao Phraya River.

Then, visit Wat Arun or The Temple of Dawn, one of the most iconic places in Bangkok. This is the temple where you can see the Khmer style pagoda, which is called "Prang" in Thai.

Lastly, let's go to Wat Pho or the first open university of Thailand that was registered as "Memory of the world" by UNESCO in 2011. Also, this is where ex-US president Obama visited in 2012!

As an architecture, I will make you see these marvellous temples from a different perspective.

I think this is very good to explore more than just go to the temple and then take a photo but I could know more about the deep in detail how's building so it makes me feel different like go the same place but feel different. Cherry is very nice! She did very well to take care of me and give a knowledge like a friend. I really impress to go on the trip.

I had so much fun learning about the details and history of the temples. Cherry was very friendly and attentive. If I didn't go with her, I wouldn't have noticed the little details that make the temples special. She was also enthusiastic to share what she knew. It was a lovely day out and I got to learn so much!

Great Day with Wonderful Experience Taro is polite and responsive! During the day, Cherry took care of me and made sure that everything went well. I can't imagine if I go to the temples alone and don't know the insight of temple history. Cherry did her great job to tell me the stories behind the temple, especially the temple's architecture through her point of view. Recommend this experience to everyone!

Cherry is very nice and responsive! She reaches out to me as soon as my booking is complete. She even prepared an umbrella for me just in case of raining. The tour itself is quite informative. I've been to many temples before but never know a lot about the differences. Cherry told me the history behind each temple we visited and compared their architectural designs. The scenery of the Wat Arun across Chao Phraya river is exceptional! This was really a nice tour that I'd like to recommend anyone who is interested in Temples in Bangkok.
