Highlights

Tour Overview

Travel like the locals and take the skytrain to the river and board an Express Boat on the Chao Phraya River to Rachawong pier. Then, walk to the heart of Chinatown to pay a visit to the Chinese temple of Wat Leng Noei Yi.

We take you for coffee or tea into a typical Chinese shop that looks exactly like it did decades ago, before we continue by public bus to the Indian quarter.

We will stroll across the old iconic bridge Saphan Phut. On the other side of the bridge we reach the Thonburi side and its Portugese quarter which is still very untouched by tourists. There we visit Wat Prayoon, which is lesser known than some of its “colleagues” – but no less interesting – and decorated with the UNESCO “Excellence Award.”

Continue with a visit to the 18th-century chapel of St. Cruz-Church and stroll through the old alleys, where you can taste exquisite homemade pastries.

We will then board a longtail-boat and go on a klong tour which ends at Klong Bang Luang, a small artist-village. We will walk along the stilt-houses, where art of all kinds is on display and offer. On most days (with the exception of Wednesday and Thursday) you will be able to see a puppet-show.

We will return by boat to the pier and then back to the hotel. But before you go back, you should not miss out on feeding the fish in the klongs. It is said to bring you good luck!
