Billed as the Hidden Jewels of Bangkok this trip involved visits to 3 different temples, Wat Ratchanadda, Wat Suthat and Wat Po plus a Tuk Tuk ride which was probably the highlight - a bit like the Wacky Races. Probably one temple too many for most people given the heat and humidity. Bangkok is also a good 2 hour drive from the port so you spend about half the day on the coach. Read Less

The temple is excellent although some parts were closed due to restoration work. Our guide was not very good. We just had to follow her at a quick pace but she was not knowledgeable about the temple area. After this we had free time but this involved being taken back to the coach and driven to an area half an hour away. I asked the guide what is there to do in this area and she said with a huge smile "Shopping madame" We are lucky in England and have lots of shops so i asked what else...She didn`t know. Lucky for me we`d been given a map and i realised John Thompson's house was just around the corner. This was one of best experiences and I`d highly recommend it Read Less

Our guide Annie was amazing. The reclining buddha was great, we booked time on our own after that, which felt very rushed due to traffic and distance. in hindsight it would have been better to book a full day tour.

We booked thee Wat Po and time on our own tour, well worth it. We opted to not take the tour bus into the city after Wat Po, but to make our own way there as we went for a Thai massage at Wat Po (great) and then visited the Grand Palace near Wat Po (excellent). We then caught a Tuk Tuk into the city to MBK shopping centre, via the Giant Swing. Read Less

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. Read Less

The temples in Bangkok were very impressive but somewhat crowded, the only drawback was the place the coach stopped (Asia Hotel) for the return journey back to the ship was some way out from the centre and most attractions.

The port (container port) is a good 2 1/2 hours away from Bangkok. We liked the tour and the tour guide. Everyone even got to ride in Tuk Tuk's. Lunch was included. Very nice restaurant where we all got to taste delicious Thai food. The temples we saw were stunning. Downside: At the end of the tour you get dropped off at a jewelery factory where they try to sell all kinds of jewelery to you. I would have rather spend my precious time at one of the famous sights in bangkok than listening to a sales pitch. Read Less
