Full description
Explore Bangkok like a local on a combined 5-hour tour by rickshaw and on foot. Discover a side of the city that the brochures and travel magazines don’t show you, and see what happens behind and away from Bangkok’s concrete buildings. Your first stop will be a typical Thai temple with Chinese influences. Your guide will tell you the story of the temple and Buddhism in general. Continue at a relaxed pace through one of the city’s the poorest neighborhoods. Learn first-hand how the locals live on Bangkok’s many canals. Next, cross the Chao Phraya River by traditional long tail boat. On the other side, enter a jungle of banana, mango, papaya and coconut trees. Continue to a beautiful park to feed hundreds of fish in the pond. Keep a lookout for the resident monitor lizards. Continue your journey by samlor, a traditional Thai rickshaw or “bicycle taxi.” Stop at the oldest temple in the area, before heading to a riverside restaurant for a Thai lunch overlooking the “River of Kings.” Re-board your rickshaw for the short ride to the pier, where a public boat will take you back to the beating heart of Bangkok.

The tour was comfortable on a green island. Very interestingly conveyed by Ohm Ohm has told a lot. It was very informative and relaxed at the same time. Because of the great heat / sultry everything went a bit slower, that was better that way! Thank you ohm for the experience
