In the morning, meet your small group at the Saphan Taksin BTS Station and set off for a nearby ferry pier. If you've upgraded your tour at booking, you'll benefit from the personalized services of a private guide.
Board a water taxi commonly used by locals to commute across the river and avoid Bangkok’s notorious traffic jams. You'll find sufficient room for standing or sitting as you make your way to the next destination. Then disembark for a look at a more traditional side of the capital city.
Your sightseeing begins at a lively flower market where the scent of fresh blooms will follow you all the way to Ban Baat. This thriving part of the city where handmade alms bowls are produced for the monks' daily alms ceremony, has retained its historical charm. Your guide will explain the cultural significance of this Thai Buddhist tradition.
Continue on foot to the Kudeejeen community, best-known for its Portuguese and Chinese influences spanning centuries. Preserving this cultural heritage has been the life work of a few of its residents. You'll stop by a Thai-Victorian house to observe how Thai royal cuisine, called chor muang, is prepared using traditional recipes.
Then hop on a long-tail boat through the river communities and conclude your 6.5-hour tour at the Bang Wa BTS Station.
