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!
