Tour Bangkok

This tour introduces you to the best temples in Bangkok, and also the world largest teak mansion Vimanmek, and the visually stunning Ananta Samakhom throne hall.
The Thais call Bangkok “Krung Thep” which literally means City of Angels and it really lives up to its name. Bangkok was established by King Rama the first in 1782 when Siam (Thailand’s name back then) was still reeling from the loss of the great Ayutthaya kingdom to the Burmese. Siam and its neighboring kingdom Burma and had long been at war and finally in 1767 the Burmese dealt the fatal blow. They breached Ayutthaya defense, seized everything valuable and completely burnt down the great city.
King Taksin regained independence for Siam and propelled the Burmese back. Then King Rama the first succeeded him and chose Bangkok as the new capital with the vision of making the city as glorious as Ayutthaya had ever been. You can see clear evidence of this when you visit the old Bangkok (called Rattanakosin island, as it’s surrounded by river and canals). The Grand Palace was erected and its temple Wat Phra Kaew was richly elaborated that it had become the symbol of Bangkok for centuries to come. Many other Royal temples and palaces were found by the subsequent kings and they were almost all very elaborate, beautiful, and one of their kinds. On this driving tour you will get to see many of them.
overview
Wat Phra Kaew is arguably the most important landmark of Bangkok. It is visually stunning and conceptually mystifying, and is revered as the most sacred Buddhist temple (wat) in Thailand and thus all the buildings in there are richly elaborated. Commissioned by King Rama I as the royal temple, you will see the glisters of gold almost everywhere. All the buildings spare nothing on elaboration according to Buddhist and Hindu heritages which are the prevailing religious beliefs in Thailand. The main building houses the Emerald Buddha which is the sacred statue of the Buddha believed to be the protector of Thailand. Around the ground you will see many mystic creatures there including Giants, Garudas, Sihamoni angels, and Kinnara. One of the surprised displays is the model of Angkor Wat. All the shires and walls have deeper stories and it will help to have tour guide.
WatPrakaew
WatPrakaew
Wat Pho is a royal temple richly decorated with eastern sculptures and architecture. The temple is classed as the highest grade of the Royal temples in Thailand. King Rama I first rebuilt the temple complex on an earlier temple site, and became his main temple where some of his ashes are enshrined. It was later expanded and extensively renovated by Rama III. The temple complex houses the highly revered 46m long Reclining Buddha, which is 15 m high and 43 m long with his right arm supporting the head. This giant reclining Buddha is a surreal sight and you wouldn’t believe it is housed inconspicuously in the center of busy city like Bangkok. The surrounding area is also beautiful with gardens, sculptures, pagodas – all conveying very interesting mystical stories.

Wat Traimit houses the world's largest solid gold Buddha statue. The statue is 3 metres (9.8 ft) tall and weights 5.5 tonnes. The statue was housed in a wat in the old capital of Ayutthaya until mid 19th century, and its provenance from Ayutthaya excludes the possibility of it having been made after about 1750. The statue is estimated to be worth 250 million dollars and is recognized to be the most valuable religious object. The legend has it that the golden Buddha was plastered to hide its true worth and not until the plaster cracked centuries later that the gold was revealed.
WatTraimit
Vimanmek Mansion is the world’s largest golden teak mansion (golden teak is a variety of Thai teak, its trunk yields solid wood, very strong and quite rare these days). Vimanmek Palace was constructed in the reign of King Rama V in 1900 by having the Residence at Ko Sichang, Chonburi, dismantled and reassembled in Dusit Garden as the first permanent residence in the garden. Nails were used during its construction. These days Vimanmek is a really magnificent period villa rather than a palace – like a place of the past entirely built of Thai teak. It’s painted light grey with polished wooden floors, and decorated throughout with European stylised furniture and prints from the turn of the twentieth century.

Ananta Samakhom Throne Hall was the palace reception hall commissioned by King Rama V to architects Mario Tamagno and Annibale Rigotti. The place is very European and contrasts the feel in such Eastern old city like Bangkok, with marble from Carrara, Italy, a prominent material. The exterior looks grand with white marble and intricate details and the interior is no less spectacular with its painted ceilings and decorations. In the hall there are excellent works of art by Thai artisans including paintings and wooden metal sculptures. There is a free and excellent audio guide available.
