This trip is not about temple trips. It is about understanding Buddhism the way it is practiced in Thailand. Thai Buddhism is a curious blend of Buddhist teachings, Taoism and local Animism. This trip, you will experience up close and personal.

Meet up at BTS Station (Krung Thon Buri)

This is special for those born in the year of dragon/dog/ox/goat, where we will attend a spiritual ceremony to ward off bad luck at Wat Leng Noei Yi. In Chinese horoscope, the list of those affected by bad luck are those born in those years.

11:00

Many Thais believe that Coffin Donation is an act of making merit. It is the donation of a basic wooden coffin for those whose corpses were abandoned and those who can't afford a decent burial. We believe that doing this will get rid us of bad fortune.

12:00

Take a short walk to a wholesale market in Chinatown. After that, enjoy refreshing drinks and Thai dessert at the Old Siam. Here's where you can cool down the heat and enjoy traditional Thai desserts. Old Siam is also a good place to shop.

13:00

Visit a largest flower market in Thailand. This is one of my favorite places. I'm proud to present this place to you. And of course, you will have a cup of tea or coffee in a florist shop.

Why this trip?

Folk Buddhism is influenced by the life philosophy of Thais. While subscribing to Buddhist teachings, Thais believe in spirits and the supernatural forces that affects a person's destiny. The unique character of this fusion culture is an enigma.
