Grand Palace & Wat Pho

The Grand Palace and Wat Pho are two of Bangkok's most specacular and colourful buildings and a must for any first time visitor to the Thai capital. Usually your tour will start at Wat Traimit, home to an invaluable Golden Buddha (5 ½ tons of solid gold), before moving on to Wat Pho which is the largest temple in Bangkok and where you will fine the colossal Reclining Buddha and the Chedis of the Kings. Afterwards visit the Grand Palace which is one of the most beautiful examples of ancient Siamese architecture and which has been the residence of the Kings of Thailand for over two centuries. Here you will see palaces which were used for different occasions: the Funeral Palace, the Reception Palace, the Throne Hall, the Coronation Hall, the Royal Guest House and the beautiful Emerald Buddha Temple. These visits will leave you with a profound sense of wonder at the achievements of Thai architects in centuries gone by.
