Chinatown Tour

Wat Mangkon Kamalawat Chinese Temple

Our first stop will be the Chinese Temple of Wat Mangkon Kamalawat, the largest and most important Chines Buddhist Temple in Bangkok. Founded in 1871, this beautiful temple is built in the distinctive classic Chinese architectural style, with traditional sweeping roofs decorated with floral and animal motifs such as dragons. We'll visit the great hall, which houses the temples main gold Buddha. We'll also see shrines, statues of deities and "the four heavenly kings" clothed in warrior costumes.

Coffee in a Traditional Chinese Coffee House

After a tour of Bangkok's largest Chinese Temple, we'll stop for a refreshing coffee in a traditional Chinese coffee-house, that looks exactly as it did decades ago, before we continue by bus to the Indian quater of Bangkok.

Indian Quater and Portugese Quater Tour

After a brief tour of Bangkok's Indian quarter, we'll cross the iconic Saphan Phut memorial bridge over the Chao Phraya River, constructed in 1929 by the English.

At the other side of the bridge lies Thonburi and the Portuguese quarter of the city, which has many hidden gems to offer including Wat Prayoon, a beautiful temple that offers the chance to take a rest and feed the turtles! - it's also been awarded the highly covered UNESCO "Excellence Award".

Santa Cruz Church Tour

We'll visit the 18th century chapel of Santa Cruz and stroll through the beautiful old alleyways where you can taste exquisite home-made pasties.

Although Bangkok boats many churches, there's no others that match the historical importance and legacy of Santa Cruz church. Built by Thailand's first European settlers - the Portuguese - the church also represents the religious freedom that's been a hallmark of the Thai Kingdom for centuries.

Longtail Speedboat Ride

Next up is a must for any visitor to Bangkok - a long-tail speed boat ride down the Klongs for a tour of Bangkok's beautiful waterways, ending up at Klong Bang Luag, a small artist village.

We'll walk along the stilt houses where all kinds of art is on display with the chance to buy something that strikes your fancy, as well as a puppet show thats run every day other than Wednesday and Friday.

Return to your Bangkok Hotel

We'll return by boat to the pier we started at, and then on to your hotel - but not before you've taken part on fish feeding time on the Klongs, well-known for bringing good luck!
