What to Expect
Soak up exotic Asia on this visit to Bangkok’s Chinatown and its bustling markets. Clothing from the Saphan Phut Market is sure to tempt, and the exotic fruits and flowers of Pak Khlong are a photographer’s dream. Visit Chinatown at dusk and experience the unique flavors of Bangkok.

This is a small-grouped tour of no more than 12 people, and led by an expert guide.

Beginning at Ratchawong Pier on the Chao Praya River, step back in time at the old markets of Yaowarat, located in the heart of the Chinatown district.

Walk along Song Wat Road bordered by old businesses and warehouses, emerging at the plastic and leather quarter. Visit a century-old coffee shop and indulge yourself in an inclusive cup of fragrant coffee and a snack.

Continue walking to the end of Chinatown's road, where we will find Wat Traimit Temple, a beautiful temple that enshrines the world's largest golden seated Buddha from the Sukhothai Era, measuring nearly 5 meters in height and weighing five and a half tons. It is believed that the original Golden Buddha was disguised under the plaster covering to hide it from enemies during the war in the Ayutthaya period. The temple also houses the Chinese Museum, which highlights the history of the Chinese people in Thailand.

Following dinner, continue on foot to the Saphan Put Night Market, where we find a vast array of clothes, shoes, bags, accessories, second-hand collections and antiques on sale. The final stop of the night is at Talat Pak Khlong ("talad" meaning market), the largest wholesale flower and vegetable market of Bangkok. Nighttime is a great time to see Pakklong Talad as the street is covered with a colorful flower display.

At the end of this Bangkok tour, you are free to continue exploring the area or your guide will assist you in getting a taxi back to your hotel.
