What you can expect

Come with me on a private tour around Thonburi, the old capital of Thailand, and discover its beautiful highlights. The best part? You'll do it like a local, on a long tail boat and tuk-tuk ride!

The 'khlongs' of Bangkok are the perfect way to navigate the Thonburi area. On a scenic ride, you'll be able to see from the water the locals' daily lives and routines from both sides of the canal. Wave hello to the locals as you cruise around the khlongs and experience the friendly smiles and vibes from this community. And who knows, maybe we'll encounter a few mobile food vendors, who have their charcoal grill rigged up in the boat itself and are busy cooking while paddling around the khlongs with admirable dexterity!

During this private ride, we will pass must-see landmarks of Bangkok like The Memorial Bridge, The Flower Market, The Royal Navy Headquarters, many temples, shrines, and restaurants.

A place that's worth a visit is Baan Silapin or The Artist's House, a few hundreds of years old house turned into a gallery with local artwork, photography and a puppet theater. It is one of Bangkok's hidden gems! Visit Wat Arun, also known as the Temple of Dawn, one of the most beautiful temples in Thailand. Climb to the top to enjoy a breathtaking view of the Chao Phraya river and the neighborhood.

Here's your next ride! A tuk-tuk that will take us to the Temple of the bells also known as Wat Luangphor Toh which was built in the Ayutthaya period. I'll tell you all about its story surrounding the bells and plenty of other local insights surrounding this magical temple.

And now it's time to move on to the Wang Lang market - a famous market for eating and shopping, full of street cart vendors. This market is a locals' favorite!

To finish with a bang, head up to the Wang Lang Pier and take in the view and this beautiful place's surroundings. As a personalized offer, after exploring the pier, you can add a visit to the Grand Palace or Wat Pho.

Let me know if you wish to add more stops to our incredible itinerary or any other requests you might have. I'll make them happen!
