5 - Excellent
( Based on 2 travel reviews )

Discover Bangkok’s charm on a Canal Boat Tour, exploring vibrant waterways and traditional life. Visit the stunning Big Buddha at Wat Paknam Temple, marvel at the towering golden statue, and soak in the serene atmosphere. An unforgettable blend of culture and tranquility awaits.


Enjoy your half day with us by visiting the temples that were built in the Ayutthaya period (early 17C). You will see the great mixture between Ayutthaya and Rattanakosin (Bangkok) architectural style and the highest Buddha image in Bangkok (Wat Paknam). Absorb the atmosphere along the canal to see houses in Bangkok which you can’t see in the city center of Bangkok.

Visit the Artist’s House known as Baan Silapin in Thonburi. The 200 year-old house was turned into a gallery. It’s one of the best spots to escape from the city’s modern buildings and hectic traffic. It’s a place that you will never forget!

  2. Big Experience with Nok in Bangkok!!
    (7 months ago)
    We wanted to do a tour to see the Big Buddha in Bangkok and Nok made this tour and experience one of the most amazing..... She explains everything so well and takes good care of us..... Our tour included lunch and her suggestion was something we will always treasure..... Instead of usual restaurants we ate at a Thai home.... Authentic Thai food and snacks, with the residents being so kind and warm..... If you want a different but amazing Thai experience in Bangkok, then Nok is the perfect guide!!
