Bangkok Hidden Bites and Sites (Afternoon)
- Half Day
This afternoon, be picked up at 12:00 from the hotel by the guide and be transferred to ERR Restaurant opposite the Grand Palace. After lunch, catch the ferry to the other side of the river to begin exploring parts of the city that are not on the usual tourist circuit.

Transfer to the Portuguese quarter. Known locally as Kudichin, this neighbourhood was established before the city was founded and most tourists miss this area and its quiet little streets. This feels like an entirely different continent with bakeries selling Portuguese baked treats and the Santa Cruz church bells ringing in the background.

Stop at Khanom Farang Pa Lek (only operational Mon – Fri) and take a look at the traditional methods used to create the Portuguese cookies. Stop by the museum to eat the cookies served together with some traditional Chinese tea.

Afterwards, take some time to explore the museum and to understand how and why the Portuguese first settled in this area.

On the other side of the river, there is a chance to also visit Wat Prayoonwongsawat. This impressive white temple (lesser known to tourists), was built during Rama the 3rd’s reign in the mid 1800’s. It is home to a small garden full of friendly turtles and fish. Then, walk across the complex to a unique stupa that allows one to climb inside and look at the marvelous artwork. Take part in a traditional blessing before the short walk over to the next stop of the tour.

Take a short stroll across the bridge and visit the famous Bangkok Flower market and see many of Thailand’s exotic flowers including many species of orchids. Experience the everyday hustle and bustle of the market.

After a glimpse into the history and culture of the ‘real’ Bangkok, say farewell to the guide and return to the hotel by private transfer. (L)
