About Your Trip
Journey to Bangkok, a vibrant capital city full of Buddhist temples — more than 400 in total. Your DreamTrip will take you to 3 culturally significant wats, from oldest to newest, where you can see for yourself the outstanding characteristics of each.
Wat Pho, which dates from around
1788, is also known as “The Temple of the Reclining Buddha,” thanks to its 151-foot (46-meter) long golden, reclining Buddha statue. This complex has been designated as one of the 4 first-class royal temples in Bangkok. Then, admire another impressive golden Buddha statue at Wat Traimit, a temple built in 1831. Also a first-class royal temple, the architecturally impressive Wat Benchamabophit was built more recently, in 1900, and features walls made from Italian-imported marble.
The following day gives you ample leisure time to explore the city at your own pace, perhaps by traditional tuk-tuk — a 3-wheeled motorized vehicle used as a taxi. Top attractions include the majestic Chao Phraya River, gardens of the Grand Palace and Asiatique The Riverfront, an open-air night market established in 1907, which features more than 1,000 venues for shopping and eating.
What we love:
• Bangkok is home to well-known and sacred temples, including the 4-faced Thai representation of the Hindu god, Brahma, a highlight of Erawan Shrine.
• The large, seated golden Buddha statue at Wat Traimit weighs more than 5 tons (4.5 metric tons).
• Thailand is renowned for its impeccable beaches, thriving nightlife and delectable cuisine, which are all quintessential elements of the Bangkok experience.

• Half-day temple tour; includes lunch, transportation and gratuities for driver and guide.
