Highlights


The concept:

Along the bank of the Chao Phraya river, traders from both the East and the West started settling over one hundred years ago. In response to the requests from the early European settlers, Charoen Krung Road was built and became Bangkok’s first paved road. This tour follows the Charoen Krung Road and explores the stories behind the communities that settled in the Bangrak district of Bangkok

The Plan:

Our local licensed Tour Guide will meet you at your hotel and escort you by public transport to Saphan Taksin Skytrain station from where we will start the walk.

You will then explore the area between Saphan Taksin and Sry Phraya / River City. This is an area with significant historic significance and cultural diversity.

You will walk along the main Charoen Krung Road and also down small alleyways. As you walk you will pass by the following landmarks: Bangrak Market, Wat Suan Phlu, Assumption Cathedral, East Asiatic Company, The Mandarin Oriental Hotel, OP Place, The Old Customs House, Haroon Mosque Community, Grand Postal Building, Warehouse 30 and The Portuguese and French Embassies.

You will not go inside these landmarks but will discover the stories behind them.

Along the way we will provide water and the opportunity to stop for a snack, cold drinks and a rest.

At the end your guide will get you back to your hotel or your next destination.
