Blessings Food and Culture
- Half Day
Start at 09:30 with a pick up from your hotel and transfer to the nearest Skytrain station and get the Skytrain to Sapan Taksin, your local friendly guide will assist. Then the half day trip will begin from here with a walk through the Bangrak area. Bangrak is famous for its fresh market and boasts many family- run stalls. . Chit-chat with the chefs and shop owners, hearing about their personal tales of life in Bangrak. Gain a better understanding of Thailand’s food culture while wandering from stall to stall. Continue walking to Wat Suan Phlu, the lesser known temple by tourists, and receive the blessing from a monk as part of your truly unforgettable experience and visit a reclining Buddha.

Then take a tuk tuk or walk (optional on the day) to the Bangkokian museum. An easy to miss spot if you’re not aware of it. This small museum is often referred to as the “Bangkok Folk Museum”. It houses an example of Bangkok folk houses from times gone by, along with pictures of Bangkok from past centuries. A calming charming little spot! Please note a visit to the museum is only possible fromTuesday through Sunday. If the visit falls on a Monday, the alternative visit is a walking tour to Talad Noi, the hidden neighbourhood and discover how locals are living in small alleys. 

Once you have had some time to explore, take a short walk to Warehouse 30 and drop by the street art graffiti street, located on Charoen Krung Road. This road is a fascinating area full of interesting architecture, much of it done in an Art Deco style from the 1930s. It is known today as the “Brooklyn of Bangkok” due to the revitalization of the area recently. It is a very vibrant part of the city now and offers some insight into this changing cities history. Warehouse 30 is then in its own way a one-stop- shop and an interesting insight into daily life in this area of Bangkok. Take a look inside and marvel at the wall art of the historic Portuguese embassy in front of Warehouse 30.

Finally, cross the river by the public boat to the Jam factory. The Jam factory is a place that will make you breathe a sigh of relief when you enter. Picture a series of the old factory buildings wrapped around a grassy courtyard, big Bohdi trees and a deck leading to the river’s edge. Home to some lovely boutique shops. Finish the whole tour off with a bite to eat at “Never Ending Summer”, which serves classy versions of traditional Thai cuisine. Return to the hotel or onward touring by private transport. (L)
