What we will do
We will cycle through the maze of colourful back streets and experience a unique insight of local life in Bangkok. We will discover the charming ‘Old Bangkok’ atmosphere as we explore the delightful old Muslim and Chinese communities and we will taste some delicious street food snacks.
At the local Chinese shrine we will make offerings to the deity and wish for good health and protection. We will continue our journey into the colourful streets of Chinatown. We can absorb the vibrant atmosphere as we explore the bustling market stalls and street food vendors.
Down by the river we will walk through the beautiful scent filled flower market. All your senses will be awakened as we explore the colourful market stalls that are filled with dazzling flora from across Thailand.
We will cross the River of Kings to the old capital of Thailand and relax in the tranquil temple grounds as we feed the hungry turtles! As we explore the peaceful riverside temples we will explain about the beautiful culture of Thailand and make an offering to Buddha.
