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.

Very unique experience
Chawana showed me the other part of chinatown. It was very interesting to know more about this culture and I loved the food that he proposed.
Wonderful and knowledgeable tour guides
This is the best way to see the wonderful sites of the city.
What an adventure we had
What an adventure! In the 7 hours he was with us, it was a non stop roller coaster of sensory excitement and awe inspiring moments. While we are not new to Bangkok, Charles opened our eyes to his beloved Bangkok. We see his neighbourhood in a new light. From a bumpy local bus and ferry ride to the foods we ate, and through the maze of quaint alleys, to the inspiring monuments, Charles did all the hard work. He only wanted us to soak up and enjoy the colourful, sometimes overpowering local vibes. He navigated, he negotiated. As an avid traveller himself, he presented his tour in a compact, intense and flavourful package. He is honest and sincere in wanting us to experience his Bangkok. He took pains to ensure our thirst are quenched and tummies filled. Through him we see the nooks and crannys we often miss. The experience was authentic, raw, unedited. Time and energy was not wasted fumbling through maps, making wrong turns or trying to comprehend the friendly locals. It has been a valuable experience for us.
