You'll get to explore the often overlooked, beautiful Thonburi neighborhood, a pocket of the city that has happily stayed out of guidebooks and off the tourist trail.

You'll explore the area with one of our local Bangkok hosts, navigating on foot the tangled alleyways and taking a boat to glide along the narrow khlongs (canals). The district was once the capital of Thailand, and there’s more to discover than just the magnificent Wat Arun which Thonburi is also home to.

You’ll flit between overlooked attractions like the Tonson Mosque - the oldest in Bangkok - and temples like Wat Kalayanamit, stop by The Artist’s House where you’ll find traditional art and maybe even see a traditional Thai puppet show.

Jump (fork, chopsticks or fingers first) into the local culture by exploring Talat Phlu - there won’t be an English sign or menu in sight, but our hosts have always got time for good food, so no translation or explanation is too much! Feast, explore and feel smug knowing that you’ve seen a pocket of secret Bangkok that most people miss.
