Bangkok Walking Tour & Klong Bang Luang
If you think, it would be nice to explore Bangkok in a special way, we might just have the offer you are looking for. You will travel by public transport like skytrain and water-taxis, to explore the mighty Chao Phraya and the many canals (klongs) or you will simply take an easy walk.
First you will take the skytrain from your hotel to the „Saphan Taksin“ pier or directly into the heart of Chinatown – it depends on where you are staying in Bangkok. You will pay a visit to the Chinese temple of Wat Leng Noei Yi and experience the colorful and lively area with all the merchants and street- vendors. Coffee or tea will be served in a Chinese coffee- house, that exactly looks like it did, decades ago, before you continue by bus to the Indian quarterNext you will stroll across the old iconic bridge Saphan Phut, from where you can see the life on the river below and some of the famous Bangkok sights in the distance. On the other side of the bridge lies Thonburi and the Portugese quarter, which has some hidden „gems“ to offer. There is Wat Prayoot, which is lesser known than some of his „colleagues“ but no less interesting and decorated with the UNESCO „Excellence Award“. You will pay a visit to the 18th- century chapel of St. Cruz-Church and stroll through the old alleys, where you can taste exquisite homemade pasties.
You will then board a longtail– boat and continue with a klong tour which ends at Klong Bang Luang, a small artist- village. Take a walk along the stilt-houses, where art of all kinds is on display and offer. Except Wednesday & Fridays, you will be able to see a puppet- show.
You 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’s said to bring you good luck!

The Folding Umbrella Market : Railway Market
Make today your „market- day!“ You will be picked up in the morning from your hotel in Bangkok and transferred to Mahachai market. Take a stroll across the market and get a glimpse of the daily Thai- life, before heading for Samut Songkhram. Finally you reach the „Umbrella Market“– the market is located directly on the left and right side of the railway- track. When a train signals its approach by whisteling, the vendors fold away the roofs (hence the „umbrella“- reference) and wait patiently for the train to pass. When the train is through, roofs will be unfolded again and life continues.
From a good viewpoint by the tracks, you can see the train leave the station and watch the strange ballet of train and vendors. On the way back to Bangkok, pay a visit to the temple Wat Bang Kung, which appears almost like an jungle temple with it`s roots embracing the building.
