From Bangkok: Holy Tattoo Experience at Wat Bang Phra

10. From Bangkok: Holy Tattoo Experience at Wat Bang Phra

Wat Bang Phra is a Buddhist monastery, approximately 50 kilometers west of Bangkok. The temple is known for its daily tattoos, or Sak Yant, given by the local monks. This tradition of tattooing dates back hundreds of years. The Gao Yord Yant or 9 Spires Yant is a sacred tattoo, believed to protect and bring good luck to the bearer. This has a similar meaning to another Sak Yant design, the Hah Taew Yant. The Gao Yord Yant is usually tattooed on the nape of the neck. The 9 Spires Yant is a geometric design and represents the 9 Sacred Peaks of Mount Meru. It contains 9 symbolic images of Buddha, demonstrating how important the number 9 is in Buddhism. This experience is truly unique in Thailand as the monks are only giving a holy tattoo and blessings to very few number of people per day. During this trip, there will be an English speaking guide who will pick you up and drop you off at your hotel in downtown Bangkok with an air-conditioned vehicle. The guide will explain to you the details of ceremony along the way and make sure that everything goes smoothly.

This was such a fun and unique way to see Bangkok! The scooters were a lot of fun and we were able to see so many different parts of the city as well as try a few different yummy street foods! The groups are small and intimate (8 ppl max) and the tour guides were awesome - very knowledgeable and very helpful. They took pictures throughout the tour and emailed them to us right after. 10/10 would definitely do this again.

This tour took me to small alley, many old temples and own community.Which is I can not find by my own. Learning history about Chinatown in Bangkok. Stop at one of the most expensive coffee shop and chit chat with our guide. Highly recommend this tour to anyone.

The tour was great. Katz our tour guide was really nice and told us a lot about not only the places we visited but also about Thailand culture. We had amazing lunch together, local place, local food, then Katz treated us with some Thai cotton candy.

The tour guide Tar is very friendly, informative and generous in sharing her knowledge and even food! She’s definitely liven up the group and makes the tour more fun and interesting!

wonderful trip of the floating market with excellent chance to buy souvenirs (obviously haggle!)
