Our tour first stop is at Wat Traimit or the Temple of Golden Buddha. See the massive Buddha Statue made from solid gold weighing 5.5 tons. The image is from the Sukhothai Era and is so valuable that at one point in time, the people cover the image with a layer of concrete and plaster to hide its real value.

Now it is time to find out. Just beside Wat Pho, take a 1-hour session of foot reflexology massage to ease your feet.
Proceed to the nearby pier to board on a motorized long-tailed boat to enjoy the scenery along the river banks and small canals of the Chao Phraya River, which once gave the name “Venice of the East” to Bangkok. During the boat trip, a stop is made at the royal temple Wat Arun or the Temple of Dawn, the major riverside landmark of Bangkok with a magnificent pagoda that soars some 280 feet into the sky. Embark the boat and transfers back to the hotel.
Peter was a very informative guide who had the experience to find secluded shaded spots along the tour where he was able to not only educate us, but answer all of our questions. Plus, his timeline for avoiding long lines and the heat of the day was very much appreciated. Read on TripAdvisor
