This big city excursion takes in some of Bangkok’s most iconic sites and involves travel around the metropolis by many different forms of public transport, thereby offering a view of the capital from a local’s perspective. Even better, a guide will be on hand to provide an insider’s knowledge, plus valuable tips to get the most out of your stay in the capital. Bangkok is infamous for its traffic jams, but we will use a variety of transportation to get around quickly, such as tuk-tuks, the sky train, river boats and for the truly adventurous – a speedy klong ferry. Bangkok’s exciting and varied public transport system can be very confusing for a first time visitor, but with our knowledgeable guide, you will see the city’s most interesting areas far more quickly than being stuck in a car in rush hour traffic, which in Bangkok actually means rush hours traffic. The exact route of the excursion depends on the location of your hotel and our guide will discuss the best options for your tour. However, we will ensure that you get to see some beautiful temples, interesting bustling street markets, as well as other local points of interest that only a Bangkokian will know about.
