What you’ll do

It’s all too easy to miss Bangkok’s old traditions, off the beaten path markets and the hidden world of Buddhist monks who call the city home. So you’ll discover just that with one of our local Bangkok hosts, who can’t wait to share with you that there’s more to their city than meets the eye.

Bangkok may be a modern metropolis which never moves slower than a sprint, but there are still communities keeping alive old traditions, and off the radar neighborhoods where you can try generations-old recipes.

You’ll see monks collecting early morning Alms, visit the oldest traditional wood theatre in Thailand, stop to enjoy an authentic local breakfast (moo ping, anyone?) and head to Baan Silapin, also known as the Artist's House on the banks of the Yai Canal - here you'll discover hidden gems like an art gallery, and see the traditional Thai puppet show. Who’d have thought you could squeeze so much into one morning?
