Available Attractions

Wat Pho

Wat Pho (Wat Phra Chetuphon, Thasis) is the largest and oldest Wat (temple) in Bangkok, stretching over 20 acres and being built 200 years before Bangkok became Thailand’s capital. The main attraction here is the gold plated reclining Buddha, 46 meters long and 15 meters high. It is the place of Thailand’s first university and the best place in the world where you can get a Thai massage.

The Grand Palace

The Grand Palace is the official residence of the kings of Thailand. This complex of wonderful buildings attracts the highest number of visitors in Bangkok, each year. One of the most famous is The Temple of the Emerald Buddha (Wat Phra Kaew), which contains small Emerald Buddhas from the 14th century. Keep in mind that this is Thailand’s most sacred place and a strict dressing code applies: long pants, long shirts, no bare feet, no bare shoulders etc.

One Pillar Pagoda

One Pillar Pagoda is built in the beginning of the millennium and is still one of the most impressive and iconic landmarks of Hanoi. The pagoda is a small, but unique Buddhist temple, because it is fulfilled with mysticism and symbolism. The wooden construction of the pagoda stands over a massive stone pillar, from where derives its name. If observed from distance, the pagoda represents a lotus flower and surrounded by water - it is a mark of purity. You can go inside through a steep staircase, but the One Pillar Pagoda is more captivating from outside, especially at sunset.

Hoan Kiem Lake

Hoan Kiem Lake is a beautiful exception from the densely urbanized historical center of Hanoi. This calm lake is bordered by tall green trees, which create a unique impression that you are in the middle of a tropical jungle, but a few tall buildings, which dominate the skyline always remember that you are right in the heart of Hanoi. The whole shoreline of the lake is a place for relaxation, romance, inspiration and captivation, while two small islets create an even more magical atmosphere. Nearby the southern coast of the lake is situated the construction of the Turtle Tower, which rises over a flat green islet. At the opposite, northern side of the lake, is situated a larger island with a temple and, moreover, it is most famous for the scenic Red Bridge that connects the island with the shore. On the bridge you can enjoy numerous stunning vistas, especially at dusk, when the sun's rays are magically mirrored by the calm surface of the lake.
