Private vs Join In

Join in tours provide a cheaper option for small groups of people but Private Tours allow a more personalised experience.

  • Private tours can be run every day and for any number of guests.
  • Pick up from hotel is only available for private tour. We customize pick up method based on location to avoid the unpredictable traffic. From some hotels we recommend our guide to escort you on the Subway to our normal tuk tuk meeting point (at Itsaraphap MRT Station). Our route however is designed to avoid traffic.
  • Our tours usually start at 08:30am, but for a private tour we can adjust from early morning to the afternoon
  • We allow children under 10 years old on private tours and can customize it to the needs of the children.

The concept:

This tour is designed to explore the temple and a local market on the Thonburi side, the former capital city before Bangkok. We combine 2 iconic temples and a local market where you will experience the local tasty food as well as exploring the city by Tuk Tuk.

The Plan:

Meet your guide and driver at MRT Itsaraphap Station.

After that you will head towards Wat Arun Temple, The Temple of Dawn where your guide will show you around the temple main halls and iconic stupa of Bangkok.

Then the tuk tuk will bring you to Wat Paknam Bhasicharoen, home of the Giant Gold Buddha image. Wat Paknam Bhasicharoen is one of the old temples established in 1610. We will visit the massive Buddha and explore the museum inside the temple's white stupa.

Next, the tuk tuk will take us to a local market Talad Phlu which is full of local food and many tasty snacks. The order of the stops may change based on what makes the most sense on the day.

At the end of the tour the guide will help you get to the nearest BTS Skytrain Station or guide you to where you need to go. (Exclude Ticket).

For most of the tour we will get around by tuk tuk and while we cannot promise it, we will hopefully encounter very little traffic.

  • - Normally there will be 2 people per tuk tuk, However, when odd number of passengers there may be 3 people per tuk tuk.
