Today after breakfast, you’ll be led on a tour exploring the history of Bangkok. The Chinese legacy of Bangkok’s origins cannot be understated. As one of the original cornerstones of the city, early Chinese merchants enabled Bangkok commerce to thrive and turned the city into one of the great trading centers of Asia. Bangkok now boasts a population of more than one million Chinese inhabitants and has one of the most colourful Chinatowns on the planet. Fast, frantic and eclectic, a ramble through Yaowarat is cacophony for the senses.
Explore narrow lanes, fresh markets, religious landmarks and textile booths. Enhance the journey by sampling street snacks while gaining candid impressions for the cultural mosaic that is Bangkok. After a local lunch, enjoy a klong tour on the Chao Phraya River. Exploring Bangkok by boat is a fantastic way to get a glimpse into the timeless charm of the city, as well as witness the role Bangkok’s many waterways have played in its past right up to the present day. With the wind in your hair and majestic sites and attractions lined up on both banks of the mighty Chao Phraya, most people fall for the charm of getting around Bangkok by boat.
