This fascinating Go Red Guided Bangkok culture Tour starts with a journey through a wonderfully rich Muslim community to the Old Customs House, right on the river. This was the first stop for ancient travellers entering Bangkok and the perfect place to start your journey!
From there you’ll weave through the maze of woven streets that make up Bangkok’s vibrant and bustling Chinatown. Following your well-informed guide through the diverse cultures that make up this lively part of the city, you’ll discover all it has to offer.
After taking in the culture from Chinatown, it’s time to move on toward the river to get some cool air and absorb the smell and sights of the Flower & Vegetable markets. Not far from here we will cross the mighty mother of all rivers by ferry to dock on one of the most beautiful temples Bangkok has. The Wat Kanyalanamitr.
Continue your journey by exploring the Historic Thonburi side of the river, stopping at the incredible Portuguese community to try out some desserts still made the same way they did over 200 years ago. After this short stop you’ll also enjoy visits to Wat Prayoon temple feeding turtles. These are all classic examples of beautiful Thai temples and culture that can’t fail to please.
After you’ve taken in all the culture you can it’s a short trip back to the Go Tours HQ to unwind and discuss the day’s journey with your tour group, and plenty of free soft drinks, or maybe even purchase a refreshing beer or two.
With a maximum of 6 people per group and a relaxed style, you’ll always have time to ask the guides questions about the things you see. The route is quite easy and suitable to people of all ages with plenty refreshment stops.
