Tuk Tuk Adventure
Your evening of adventure begins as you embark upon your 4 hour open-air journey that will take you past bustling markets, ancient temples and savory street food as you witness the city come alive under a glistening stream of vibrant night lights.
Visit the aptly named Klong San Market, located near the Klong San Pier, offering an array of trendy clothing stalls in addition to charming river side restaurants.
Continue to Wat Prayoon, standing out from the rest of the city’s temples thanks in part to its iconic red fence, fashioned out of ancient lances, swords and axes. The temple was built during the reign of King Rama III and features a low-rise Turtle Mountain housing spirits dedicated to the deceased.
From there, pass by the Memorial Bridge, stretching over the Chao Phraya River.
At the Giant Swing, learn about the prior influence of Brahmanism in Thailand. The nearly 70-foot swing was originally built in 1784 to serve as an integral part of Brahmin ceremonies.
Pass by Wat Pho, Bangkok’s oldest and largest temple.
Enjoy a visit to the Flower Market, where you will see numerous varieties of exotic orchids and sweet smelling flowers. The buzz in this market is best experienced at night during which busy vendors load their wares up and down their mopeds.
Travel to Yaowarat Road, home to Bangkok’s thriving Chinatown District. Here you will find an array of gold shops, exotic markets, historic buildings and colorful snacks. Visit a local restaurant where you can sample mango sticky rice.
