Markets, Local Communities and Private Boatride.
If you love to emerge yourself into the real Bangkok city and community life this trip is just for you.
I'll meet you at the pure 5, 5 ton golden Buddhat at Wat Traimit temple. This statue was covered in plaster for many centuries until it was uncovered and the $ 260 million dollar golden Buddha was found. The history is just amazing!
From here we will walk through the hidden backstreets of Chinatown where you will find secret markets, old houses for the rich, Chinese shrines and everything on sale. There is no other place in Bangkok which is as fascinating as Chinatown.
By Chao Praya express boat we'll go to Wat Arun for some stunning pictures. We cross the river by ferry and get on a private longtail boat that will take us on a journey back in time. You will explore the small canals and see ancient wooden homes rise up next the water.
We can stop at the artist house of Ban Silapin before returning to the boat pier where I will make sure you can get to your next destination.
