Our meeting point is at Sathorn Pier (near Saphan Taksin Sky Train Station). or at your hotel for Private Tour.
Avoid tourist crowds and start this morning by jumping to taxi boat, one of Bangkokian’s transportation means, carrying passengers from suburbs into downtown for their work. Grab yourself a seat if you can find one, but better be fast. Along the Chaopraya River or known as River of King, you can start taking pictures of those 5 stars hotels like Pennisula, Mandarin Oriental or Shagrila etc as well as observing the harmony of Thai society which even though Thailand is a rich Buddhist country, there are churches, mosques and Buddhist temples standing next to each other in the same community.
Our 1st exploration is Chinatown,Chinese habitat, shops selling gold, all sorts of food, snacks of every variety, incense and just about everything else. It’s said you can find almost anything in Chinatown, if you know where to look! Discover what Chinese have in their kitchen. Want some sea cucumbers, duck feet or shark fin? Of course, most of the signs are in Chinese.Stop at visit to an old Chinese shrine inside the market before move onto Pak Klong Talat, Bangkok’s largest Flower Market known as Pak Klong Talatand observe how Thais are so gifted in making flower leis and garlands. Enjoy walking through bunches of orchids, lotus, jasmine and all sorts of flowers from all over the country. Absolutely local atmosphere! Walk thru this busy wet market and observe vendors of every shop making and selling beautiful flower garlands,“Puang Malai” which made of Jasmines, orchids, roses and assorted flowers.
Back on the road; get on a Tuk Tuk to Wat Po, one of the oldest and largest temples in Bangkok, also known as RecliningBuddha Temple. It is the first Massage School in Thailand. Don’t be surprised if you smell something fishy. ….in fact it is really fishy smell from the ‘Old Bangkok Dried Fish Market’, one of the Chinese community in Bangkok just opposite the temple.
Continue to by ferry Wat Arun or Temple of the Dawn, Landmark of Bangkok. Climb up the outstanding tower to get the most spectacular view of the Chaopraya River and the Grand Palace.
