Thailand has been on the traveller’s map for many decades. And not without reason! Most famous for its tropical islands and white-sanded beaches, the Kingdom’s hilly north offers respite from the bustling streets of Bangkok, whilst the country’s north-eastern region, Isaan, is still relatively untouched by tourism. However, what makes Thailand truly special are its friendly locals, mouth-watering food and magnificent temples that weave like an underlying thread through the entire country.
Explore Bangkok in a unique way as you ride around the city on a double-decker bus, accompanied by your very own expert tour guide. Visit magnificent temples, local ethnic enclaves, popular monuments and experience the bustling Wang Lang Market, where you can find a diverse variety of local products, including clothes and favourite local Thai snacks and desserts. After having lunch at a local riverside restaurant, jump back on the bus and head to ICONSIAM, the largest waterfront shopping mall in Bangkok, to conclude this eventful full-day excursion.
Well-suited for families and small groups, this five-hour tour will take you to a wholesale flower market, and a local Buddhist temple followed by a visit to a riverside restaurant on the outskirts of Bangkok where you will learn about Thai herbs, spices and why Thai people are obsessed with dipping sauces. Later, you will join the host in the kitchen to create three Thai signature dipping sauces that go well with meat, seafood and fruit before enjoying a delightful meal by the river.
