Description

You will experience a side of Bangkok that is not found in the brochures and travel magazines. You will be amazed at what lies beyond the great walls and buildings.

At 10:00 a.m. we leave together from our office in Yannawa, a non tourist district of Bangkok. First we make a stop at a typical Thai temple with Chinese influences. The Bangkok guide has exciting facts to tell about the temple and Buddhism in general.

After this visit we stroll through one of the poorest areas of Bangkok. The people you meet there, although they don't have much material, are very friendly and warm-hearted people. Here you will experience an important and authentic part of Thai life.
The life of the inhabitants along the canals cannot be experienced from a tourist boat; this unique experience can only be had during a walk along the settlements.

Next we take a short boat trip across the Chao Phraya River. On the other side you will visit a jungle of bananas, mangos, papaya and coconut trees. Although this place seems far removed from Bangkok, it is an important part of the vibrant metropolis. You will be surrounded by fantastic vegetation and especially nature lovers will enjoy the peace and quiet.

A little further on we pass a beautifully landscaped park where we take a break and feed hundreds of fish, which are already waiting for their lunch. The lake is also home to the park's largest inhabitants, the monitor lizards. Keep your eyes open; with a bit of luck you might see one of the reptiles on the shore

After enjoying the beauty of the park, watching birds, squirrels and butterflies, the next surprise is already waiting for you. We continued our tour in a Samlor (a Thai rickshaw) and drove through a tranquil green park.

The rickshaw then makes a stop at the oldest temple in the area before we head to a restaurant on the riverbank. Here we will enjoy a delicious Thai meal with a fantastic view of the river. Breathe in the beautiful nature and watch the boats sailing around.

From the restaurant it is only a short rickshaw ride to a landing stage; from here, a tourist boat takes us back to the hectic side of Bangkok.

We are sure that you will return to the hotel with new impressions and unforgettable experiences.

Please note

On Saturdays and Sundays the rickshaws make a stop at the "floating markets".
