We were met at our hotel by our tour guide (Note) who sat us down and explained everything that was scheduled for that day.
We were able to choose different things to do prior to our trip and Note wanted to make sure that everything that he had planned was a good fit for exactly what we wanted.
He told us that the cost for the day would be approximately “x” amount and he took that money up front which made the day effortless on our part.
He would stand in the lines and get our tickets for us while we would wait in the shade.
He walked us through the day step by step explaining everything along the way. We went to the Grand Palace first. Note explained the history of all of the kings and queens, princes and princesses. It was very interesting and beautiful! Next we went to Wat Pho (the reclining Buddha).
This temple was just as beautiful as the first one but in a different way.
I highly recommend visiting a few temples while in Bangkok. It is definitely something everyone needs to experience if they have the opportunity.
One word of advice, make sure that you cover your chest, shoulders, and ankles because you will not be allowed inside the gates otherwise.
We ate just outside the gates of Wat Pho for lunch and had an amazing authentic Thai lunch. B
e careful about how much spice you ask for! The Thai people like very spicy food but it is delicious!!
Overall, we had such an amazing time!
I truly believe that Note (our tour guide) made this experience 10 times better than doing this on our own!
