Free time for dinner (not included)

First night in Bangkok.

Day

Breakfast included.

The first stop of the day will be the colorful Maekhlong market, crossed by the tracks of a secondary railway line. Here we will witness the spectacular passage of the small train, which slowly plunges into this active and teeming market, while the agile sellers move the merchandise just enough to be able to pass the convoy, and then resume all the activities soon after as if nothing it were!

 

Not far from here we find the Damnern Saduak Floating Market. On board a typical motor launch we will proceed along the exotic rural canals to reach the famous and picturesque market. Along the river the nice wooden boats form an intricate comings and goings, where the sellers manage to extricate themselves easily to offer passers-by the products of local cuisine and craftsmanship. Time to visit the bustling market and restart to immerse yourself in the more traditional rural Thai countryside. Return to Bangkok at noon.

 

Free time for lunch(not included)

In the afternoon, transfer to the historic Phra Nakhorndistrict, to immerse ourselves in the scents of the colorful and colorful Flower Market of Phak Klong Dtalat, where the hands of skilled florists elaborate new compositions of orchids and colorful flowers that a few hours later will adorn the hotels, restaurants and the Temples of the Capital. Then we will reach the beautiful Wat Trimitr, or "Temple of the Golden Buddha".

 

Continue on foot along the streets of the bustling Chinatown, an explosion of colors in this lively and unique corner of Bangkok where artisans and merchants offer to the curious passers-by merchandise and dishes of all kinds ... it is here, in fact, that one finds the best "street food" in the city with dozens and dozens of stalls overflowing with exotic delicacies.

Following with a public boat we will reach the Wat Arun, or "Temple of the Aurora", a true symbol of the city and once the royal residence of King Taksin. It is located on the opposite bank of the Chao Praya rivercompared to Wat Phoand modern Bangkok.

 

A short distance away, we will reach the characteristic district of Kudicheen(Kudi Chin), one of the first settlements in Bangkokafter the destruction of Ayutthaya, which still preserves its own identity and architecture. The picturesque wooden houses are protected by the splendid bell tower of the church of Santa Cruz, built by the Portuguese around 1770 and then restored in neo-Renaissance style by two Italian architects in the early 1900s.

 

We will continue on foot, leaving behind the intricate network of canals that forms the outskirts of the capital, along a path full of atmosphere until we reach the small village and learn about the local community, where time seems to have stopped.

We will visit the ancient pastry shop Thanusingha Bakery Housewhich still produces delicious Portuguese sweets made with eggs and sugar, the small Baan Kudi Chinmuseum and the exotic, small Taoist temple of Kuan An Keng Shrine, immersed in a kaleidoscope of cultures perfectly in tune with each other.
