Top Tours in Bangkok – The Most Popular Places to Experience

Bangkok trips are always a flurry of activities and bright lights, and if you don't want to miss out on the complete experience, take a look at the best tours to take in the city.

1

The Ayutthaya Tour

Enjoy a day of discovering the mesmerising architecture, rich cultural history and amazing buildings of Ayutthaya, the ancient royal capital of Thailand. Almost all the luxury hotels in Bangkok will have some decor that speaks of this ancient town, especially if you are staying at Chatrium Hotels & Residences. Begin the tour by checking out the waterfront building that belongs to the Bang Pa-In Palace, which used to be the home of Thai royal families back in the day. Next, you can walk to the Wat Na Phra Men and take a look at the seated golden Buddha. If you are travelling with a guide, you will get to hear the story of how the Burmese invaded Ayutthaya and destroyed it too.

Thonburi Klongs and Grand Palace Tour

The rivers of Thonburi lets you look through you a fabulous window and into the universe of Bangkok. This tour lasts half a day and shows you some of the most exquisite sights the city has to offer. The tour begins when you set out from your place of stay and go to the Chao Phraya River, from where you climb aboard a traditional boat with a long tail. While you ride on the canals or Klongs, you will be able to see the neighbourhood life along the river, alongside amazing views like the Wat Arun, which is locally known as the Temple of the Dawn, and the Royal Barges Museum. Next, you will stop at the Grand Palace, a magnificent marvel that mixes customary European and Thai architecture with its gold coloured stupas, traditional columns, and bright mosaics.

Calypso Bangkok Cabaret Tour

The Calypso is one of the most popular cabaret shows in Bangkok, and for good reason too. For about 30 years now, this dance show has entertained the audience with Broadway-style performances. This is a must visit when in Bangkok as you would not be able to see the colours, vibrancy, and energy anywhere else in the world. You can also have the pre-show dinner if you want to make an evening out of this show.

4

Floating Market Tour

Clearly one of the most loved photographic locations in this part of the world, this floating market is something that you would not forget easily. Take a boat ride down the calm canal that shows you the beautiful countryside views that Thailand has to offer. The vendors have all kinds of fruits and vegetables imaginable and love to pose for travellers.

5

Emerald Buddha & Reclining Buddha Tour

A purely historical and cultural tour, this is best done with an informative private guide of your own. The Emerald Buddha statue and the Reclining Buddha are massive structures which the people of Bangkok look up to, and they will leave you speechless in awe.
