Overview

You will be picked up in the morning from the meeting point at Exit 1 of Saphan Taksin BTS Station at around 9am. Recommend to arrive approximately 15 – 30-minutes before the departure time.
From here, you will meet your local guide. The BTS Skytrain station lies right next to one of the main boat ferry piers, used by many locals to commute from one part of the river to the other avoiding Bangkok’s notorious traffic jams. Hop on these water taxis to start exploring the Bangkok of a bygone era. Disembarkation at the drop-off station is easy as these boats provide sufficient places (standing and seated). Upon arrival, we head straight into the traditional side of Bangkok – a small yet very lively flower market grabs our senses and attention immediately – the smell of fresh flowers will follow you all along the way to the beautiful area of Ban Bat.
Once a thriving part of Bangkok, Ban Bat has remained its charm and is now considered one of the leading communities that lives of the creation of Baat Making (alms bowl making for monks) – one of the essential part of a monk’s daily alms ceremony. Your guide will be able to explain in detail the importance of this and the relation it has with Thai religion and tradition.
Continue to visit the Kudeejeen community which best known for its Portuguese and Chinese influences from hundreds of years ago. Preserving this has been the life’s work of a few of its residents. We stop to visit a heritage Thai-Victorian house and observe how to make former Thai royal cuisine ‘Chor Muang’. The old recipes uses to prepare meals for the royalties differ from the current Thai cuisine although elements of ‘Chor Muang’ have been integrated in the current modern form of this rich-in-flavor cuisine.
At the end of the walking tour, hop on a long-tailed boat cruising through the communities by the water, and conclude the trip at the Bang Wa BTS station. Transfer from the Bang Wa Skytrain station.
