Chinatown Walk & Klongs Tour - Half Day
You will be picked up at either 08:00 or 13:00. There is no better way to explore Bangkok’s endless maze of backstreets and alleyways than on foot. Take to the streets on this Chinatown guided walking tour and discover daily Thai life away from the tourist trail.
Start in the bustling Yaowarat district, Bangkok’s Chinatown. Discover shops and stalls selling a curious array of items, such as birds’ nests. Take a break at an old tea shop to enjoy people watching while sipping a cup of Chinese tea.
From here, delve deeper into the smaller backstreets, or ‘sois’, of Chinatown. Visit Talad Kao, a market packed with fresh food, tropical fruit and Chinese herbs. Rub shoulders with the locals while perusing the various items on sale. The last stop of the walk is Wat Leng Nei Yi, a Chinese Taoist temple and learn about this traditional belief system.
Reach the edge of the Chao Phraya River and board a longtail boat for a cruise along Bangkok’s canals. Called ‘klongs’ in Thai language, the waterways are lined with stilted houses and shops. Catch a glimpse of life along the water while cruising past these charming small neighbourhoods.
Before returning to the city, stop at Wat Arun. Admire its distinctive architectural style and the views of the Chao Phraya River, then return to the boat and transfer to the hotel.
