Day 02 : Sightseeing Tour of Bangkok
After breakfast proceed sightseeing tour visiting famous Buddhists Temples. Wats or temples are open to all visitors. It is worth remembering a few things when visiting Wats. Disrespect towards Buddha images, temples or monks is not taken seriously. Take off your shoes before entering a wat and make sure you are appropriately attired.

Buddhist temples or wats are the primary tourist attractions of the city. At times, there seems to be another temple around every corner. Today we will be visiting the famous wats, also popularly known as the “Big Three” which includes Wat Phra Kaeo, Wat Pho and Wat Arun.

Wat Phra Kaeo (Temple of the Emerald Buddha) –Wat Phra Kaeo is regarded as the most significant of all Thai Temples and the small green-jade statue of the Buddha, high on its golden altar in the Chapel Royal, is the most sacred Buddha image in Thailand. When the statue was first found in 1434, it was covered in stucco. Today thousands of worshippers pay their respects in front of the statue.

Wat Pho – Wat Pho or Wat Phra Chetuphon is the oldest and largest Wat in Bangkok, which was built in the 16th century during the Ayutthaya period and then almost completely rebuilt in 1781 by King Rama I. It features the most beautiful reclining Buddha and the largest collection of Buddha images in Thailand.

Wat Arun – Wat Arun or the Temple of the Dawn is named after the Indian god of dawn, Aruna. It is located on the Thonburi side of the Chao Phraya river. When king Tak Sin built his palace, he ordered the temple to be annexed to it because it was the first place in Thonburi to catch the morning light. The Emerald Buddha was once housed here. Even without the sacred statue, Wat Arun continued to be much revered and the kings Rama II & III reconstructed and enlarges it to its present height of 104 meters.

Day 03 : Sightseeing tour of Bangkok
Today we will be visiting some other important Wats including Wat Benchama Bophit & the Dusit Palace.

Wat Benchama Bophit is made of white carrana marble, hence its tourist name is Marble Temple. This most recent of royal Wats was built at the turn of century under King Rama V. The largest Bot is a prime example of modern Thai architecture. The courtyard behind the Bot exhibits 53 Buddha images, representing famous images and styles from all over Asia, Thailand & other Buddhist countries.

Dusit Palace: From a single restored building in the 1980s, the Vimanmek Mansion Museum has grown to include more than 20 restored structures of the old Dusit Palace displaying everything from ancient artefacts of Thailand's pre-history to contemporary photographs donated by His Majesty the King. Its now become a large complex of museums where the buildings themselves form part of the "collection" on display.
