Two iconic Bangkok Buddha images and the temples of Wat Pho and Wat Traimitr. Tour begins at 9:00am. Duration of tour: 2 hours 30 mins Note: Italian and Spanish tours are $11 more per person ($55).
Visit two salient temples in the 'City of Angels'. Wat Phra Jetuphon, better known as Wat Pho, is the oldest of Bangkok's temples and is situated opposite the Grand Palace. The temple is renowned as Thailand's oldest university and there are instructive murals illustrating the finer points of Thai massage which is still taught and practised here. The highlight is the 46 metre long and 15 metre high statue of a reclining Buddha. But not to be overlooked is the principal image in the main chapel, the Ayutthaya period Phra Buddha Theva Patimakorn. Also included is a visit to Wat Traimitr, located near to Bangkok's main railway station. The temple houses a 5.5 tonne gold Buddha, which was discovered when it's plaster casing broke whilst being transported to its new home from the port area. In turbulent days past, coating valuable images in plaster was a ruse to hide their true value from raiders.
