You will have an early start today in order to make it to Wat Pho in time to see the gathering of the monks for their morning chanting. This is a deeply spiritual ritual and a wonderful introduction to Thailand's Buddhist culture. After the chanting has finished, continue to walk around the temple, where you can see treasured items and statues, such as the famous reclining Buddha, which is 45-metres long.

You will then go to the nearby Grand Palace. This vast site consists of a number of throne halls, museums, and temples, including Wat Phra Kaew, which houses the famous Emerald Buddha. While the Emerald Buddha is only 66cm tall, it is one of the most sacred statues in the country. The statue's origins are mysterious, and the name 'Emerald' refers to the colour rather than the composition, as the statue is actually carved out of a single piece of jade.

Please note that this tour usually starts at around 8am and finishes at around midday. As you will be visiting religious sites, you will need to cover your shoulders and knees. Tight-fitting shorts and trousers are also not permitted.
