Board your tuk tuk and take off for impressive Phra Sumeru, a fortress built during the reign of Rama I—one of two remaining fortresses from the original 14. Then it’s on to the Amulet Market where various religious amulets, charms, and traditional medicines are available. Listen as your guide explains the significance these items play in Thai culture.|
Next stop is Wat Po, a labyrinthine complex of temples, chedi, and countless Buddha images—including the famous Reclining Buddha. Founded in the 17th century, Wat Po is the oldest Buddhist temple in Bangkok and Thailand’s first university. Back on the tuk tuk, travel to Little India with its array of fabrics, ornaments, accessories, and delicious foods. After exploring this cultural enclave, continue to the Thieves Market where Thai and Chinese antiques are sold (though not the stolen variety for which the market was long ago named).
For a 360-degree view of Bangkok, climb the 318 steps at your next stop, Wat Saket. Built atop an artificial hill, see the iconic golden chedi towering in the sky on Golden Mount. Stroll around the temple complex built in Thailand’s colorfully traditional style.
