City & Temples Half Day Excursion
The City & Temples Tour is the most popular excursion available to first time tourists to Bangkok.
From the multitude of temples Bangkok city has to offer several, the three most unique and outstanding
ones are Wat Traimit, Wat Pho, and Wat Benchamabophit. Wat Traimit is home to a striking 3-meter tall Golden
Buddha image - a gleaming, 5-ton figure of solid gold. Wat Pho is Bangkok's oldest and largest temple.
It features the largest reclining Buddha image in Thailand, and the Chedi of the kings, as well as a world
famous Thai Massage training center. Finally the tour will reach Wat Benchamabophit, a fine modern Thai
temple built from white Italian Carrara marble rich ornated crossbeams decorated with lacquer and gold.
Jim Thomson House Half Day Excursion
One of the best examples of traditional Thai residential architecture and a breathtaking collection of
Southeast Asian art are exemplified in a house built by an American national. Nonetheless, Jim Thompson's
House is one of Bangkok's more popular destinations for visitors - and deservedly so.
Jim Thompson, who was born in Delaware in 1906, fell in love with Thailand while posted as an intelligence
agent in Bangkok during WWII. He later made it his permanent home and started a business supplying fine Thai
silk to overseas fashion houses, single-handedly saving what had been a dying cottage industry. His silk
company continues to flourish today. With the proceeds of his success, Thompson collected an impressive range
of art works, and sections of derelict teak houses, assembling them into a teak house/museum complex set in a
lush garden alongside central Bangkok's Saen Saep Canal.
Ancient City Half Day Excursion
Muang Boran, also refered to as The Ancient City, is both historically interesting
and entertaining. A Total of 320-acre are dedicated to this outdoor museu, which is
an architectural reflection of the Kingdom's glorious past. Almost a hundred of
Thailand's most important historical monuments and landmarks, including temples
and palaces, have been rebuilt as miniature replicas.
Muang Boran also displays several ethnological artifacts and antiques, including ancient
tools, rural arts as well as hunting equipment, all evidence of the far origins the
Siamese native culture.
