Bangkok’s Hidden Treasures with Tuk Tuk Experience
Bangkok is a two hour trip each way and I would say we were at the outskirts of Bangkok before we began to hit serious traffic. First stop is at the Pavilion on Kings Avenue, which is quite beautiful but we only have a quick photo stop here. We drive past the Democracy Monument on our way to Wat Pho Temple with its huge reclining Buddha. You have to take your shoes off here but they provide little bags for you to put them in and carry them with you. Also included in the ticket is a small bottle of water which is handy in the stifling heat. The next stop is at an international hotel for a buffet lunch. There is a wide range of food which is of a good standard. The next part of the trip is definitely the best - our Tuk Tuk experience. Lots of Tuk Tuks line up outside the hotel waiting for us tourists. Me and hubby end off in the lead Tuk Tuk which is great but the leader does tend to stick the vehicle out into oncoming traffic to stop it and to let the other Tuk Tuk’s out – a bit hair raising at times. The ride is truly exhilarating and the highlight of our trip to Bangkok. The ride ends at the What Suthat Temple which is absolutely breathtaking. The final stop is of course a high end jewellery store before the journey back to the ship. There is a comfort stop on the way for those who need it.
