Today you will enjoy a private guided tour of Bangkok. Start with the dazzling, spectacular Grand Palace. It's undoubtedly the city's most famous landmark. You will see the Palace, which is used for many different occasions, and you will see The Coronation Hall, the Funeral Hall, the Royal Guest House, and the mysterious, famous Emerald Buddha (Wat Phra Kaew), the most revered Buddha image in Thailand. Continue to Wat Pho, which is one of Bangkok’s oldest and largest temples. Wat Pho was built by King Rama I about 200 years ago and houses the gigantic, gold-plated Reclining Buddha image. This unique image is 49 meters long and 12 meters high with beautifully inlaid mother-of-pearl soles. After lunch at a local restaurant, you will walk to the pier and take a water taxi to visit Wat Arun, which is also called "The Dawn Temple".
You will whizz off to pick up some street snacks in a local street food paradise by TKU TUK, where you will sample a selection of items ranging from one of Bangkok's most famous pork satays (Moo Satay) to fresh spicy chili dips (Nam Prik). What will follow is a diverse range of unique food stops and a little bit of mystery. You will change some of the stops on a regular basis to add an element of mystery but you will no doubt sample a combination of curries, regional specialties, and sweet surprises as we go. At least one of the stops you will grab a beer with your food.
Your last stop will be in Chinatown - possibly Bangkok's most famous street for street food. Here you will sample a selection of Chinese Thai desserts including the renowned sesame dumplings in ginger soup (Bua Loy Nam Ging).

Good to know
Wear something light and long when you visit palaces or temples. You'll need to wear pants or a dress/skirt that extends well past your knees, and a top that fully covers your shoulders. If you don't, the Grand Palace does offer clothes rental service in which you can borrow some stylish trousers and/or tops for a refundable 200 baht deposit from an office near the entrance. Hang onto your claim ticket, however, as you will need it to get that deposit back.
