Experience Chinese Culture along Bangkok's Riverbanks and Tour Tha Din Daeng Market
The Second Chinatown street (Tha Din Daeng Market) is not a famous tourist attraction but it is a real local market and real local people live here. Most people who live in Tha Din Daeng still conserve their unique tradition of Chinese lifestyle.
Why this trip?
Check out the different local communities on the other side of Chao Phraya river, try different local street foods and dessert, and explore around historical places.

Truly local experience
I booked a tour on a very challenging date: both river and lots of streets in the centre were closed. Fortunately Chawana handled it great and adjusted the tour to make the most of it.
Chawana was very friendly and efficient. I would not have been to visit all these wonderful places without his knowledge of the city and most efficient way to go from one place to another without losing time.
Thanks to him I could see the most beautiful temples but also non touristic places (in particular a local market where we had a delicious lunch and where I was the only tourist).
As he says himself, he is not a profesionnal guide but a local friend showing you his city. This is exactly what it was.
