Bangkok Temples Tour | Itinerary
Bangkok is considered by many to be one of the most culturally vibrant cities in the world.
Join Friendly Inter as we visit three of the finest temples within the city, and get a taste for what makes Bangkok so singularly unique and special!
We begin our Temple Tour at Wat Traimit; a temple situated just outside the city’s lively Chinatown area. The principal reason that this temple is so significant is because of the statue that resides within it. The Golden Buddha, a statue measuring over 3m high and weighing over 5 and a half tonnes, is made of solid gold; and as a result, holds the world record for being the largest gold statue in the world. Covered in stucco for many years to conceal its true identity, it was only recently that the magnificent gold was uncovered and its real value revealed.
From the heaviest solid gold Buddha, we then travel to the largest in the city, as we progress to Wat Po, which houses the 46 meter long Reclining Buddha. It is almost impossible to appreciate the sheer size of this statue from one angle alone, and visitors often find themselves pacing the length of the Buddha to take in its mind-blowing size!
Our final temple visit is to Wat Benchamabopit, or the ‘Marble Temple’. Widely acknowledged to be one of Bangkok’s most beautiful temples, it is a delight to walk around and to admire the craftsmanship of the architecture.
To conclude our visit, we will also show you a traditional jewellery factory, where we can see the artisans at work, and also have a chance to purchase some of the beautiful products for sale there.
Get to grips with the religious culture of Bangkok and come with us on this fascinating tour!
