Description

Modern day Bangkok has undergone a a huge transformation from the city it was a few decades ago. To understand more about its past before its metamorphosis from Asian backwater to hip, densely-populated metropolis, hop on this one day tour that'll show you that old traditions still thrive even with the changing times.

Spend the day visiting Baan Bat and Kudeejeen communities, both just 30 minutes away from the city center. Ban Bat (Monk Bowl's Village) is the last remaining community that still produces the revered Buddhist alm bowls. Let our local partner lead you through the alleys of this community where men and women still tirelessly hand forge and hammer out these traditional and religious bowls that symbolise generosity. Over here, you'll learn the significance of this lost art in its relation to Thai's religion.

Later in the day, visit the Kudeejeen neighbourhood by the Chao Phraya river best known for old Portuguese and Chinese influences from hundreds of years ago. There are still remnants of Catholic churches and mosques sitting alongside Thai and Chinese temples, making this place a truly unique and peaceful as multiple religions co-exist harmoniously. Due to the foreign influences here, architecture in Kudeejeen is a mix of plain-looking townhouses to ornamental European buildings. Kudeejeen is also known for its tasty Portuguese-Thai-Chinese cuisine like the crispy golden cup snack called "Kra Tong Tong" and the Thai flavoured cupcake called "Kanom Farang Kudeejeen."
