Find out what happens hidden behind and away from Bangkok’s concrete walls and buildings. After visiting a typical local temple, we will walk at a relaxed pace through one of the poorest neighborhoods of Bangkok. You’ll learn that, although people don’t have much by our own Western standards, they’re more than friendly and content with their lives. This remains an authentic part of the Thai way of life. The way people live along the many canals in Bangkok can’t be seen while passing by in a tourist boat, but only by actually walking alongside them.
After this experience, we go for a short long-tailed boat ride across the Chao Praya river. Once on the other side, we'll enter a jungle of banana, mango, papaya and coconut trees. You can’t even reach here by bicycle; nature lovers will feel at ease. A little further on, we'll visit a beautiful park, where we rest a while to feed the hundreds of fish waiting in the pond. After enjoying the beauty of the park, the birds, squirrels and butterflies, we'll continue walking to our lunch destination. A Thai lunch will be served in a typical local setting. When everyone is ready, the next surprise awaits. We'll continue our journey in a real 'samlor' (Thai rickshaw or 'bicycle taxi') for a trip through the greenest part of Bangkok, before reaching the jetty. There, a boat awaits, ready to bring us back to the familiar concrete side of Bangkok.
