Description

You never see this side of Bangkok in brochures and travel magazines. You will be surprised by what happens behind and away from Bangkok’s concrete walls and buildings.

At 10:00 am we leave from our office/lounge in Yannawa, a non-touristy district in Bangkok. We make a first stop at a typical local Thai temple with Chinese influences. Your personal Bangkok-guide can give you a lot of information about the temple and Buddhism in general.

After visiting the temple we walk at a relaxed pace through one of the poorest neighborhoods of Bangkok. By our own Western standards, the people you meet don’t have much, but they are friendly and warm-hearted nonetheless. Their lifestyle remains an authentic part of the Thai way-of-life. The way people live along the many canals in Bangkok can’t be seen while passing by in a tourist boat. Only walking alongside them gives you that experience.

Next, we go for a short longtail boat ride across the Chao Phraya river. Once on the other side, we enter a jungle of banana, mango, papaya and coconut trees. This part of Bangkok seems out of place, but it is here, part of this vibrant metropolis. You are surrounded by lush vegetation and the best way to enjoy it is to walk. Nature lovers will feel at ease here.

A little further, we arrive at a superbly designed park, where we rest a while and feed the hundreds of fish waiting at the pond. This lake also serves as a home to the park’s largest inhabitants, monitor lizards. Keep your eyes peeled near the water, if you’re lucky you may catch a glimpse of one of them.

After enjoying the beauty of the park, the birds, squirrels and butterflies, the next surprise awaits…. We continue our journey in a real samlor (Thai rickshaw or ‘bicycle taxi’) on a cycling trip through the greenest part of Bangkok.

The samlors make a stop at another temple, the oldest temple in this area, before heading to a riverside restaurant. Here we will enjoy our Thai lunch overlooking the majestic River of Kings. Soak up the river view and breeze while watching the boats plying up and down the river…

From the restaurant it is only a short rickshaw ride to the pier where a public boat brings us back to the familiar concrete side of busy Bangkok.

You surely will return to your hotel with many new impressions of the Thai capital!

Please note

Additional information

Note: On Saturdays and Sundays the samlors make an extra stop at a local riverside market.
