Tuk Tuk Tours
Explore Bangkok by the iconic tuk tuk
Dig deeper into the history of Bangkok and the Rattanakosin period
On this walk you will learn about the history of Bangkok ever since the capital moved here in 1782. The period since then has been known as the Rattanakosin period and the area you will explore is known as Rattanakosin Island.
As you walk you will pass by some of Bangkok’s most famous sights including: The Grand Palace & Temple of the Reclining Budha, Wat Pho, City Pillar Shrine. We do not go inside them but give you enough background to then explore further on your own. Contact us if you want us to add entrance to one.
Along the way we will also pass landmarks such as the Pig Memorial, Wat Ratchabophit, Wat Mahatat, Sanam Luang, Ministry of Defence, Saranrom Park, The Amulet Market, Thammasat University.
Throughout the tour the local guide will provide insight into Thai society, culture and the role of the Royal Family.
Our local licensed Tour Guide will meet you at your hotel and escort you by public transport to the area of Rattanakosin Island from where you will explore by foot.
Once you have arrived in Rattanakosin Island you will walk between the pier at Tha Tien and the pier at Tha Maharaj. As you walk you will pass many of Bangkok’s most important landmarks and you will learn who they fit into the history of the city.
Along the way we will provide water and the opportunity to stop for cold drinks and a rest.
At the end your guide will get you back to your hotel or your next destination.
