Thonburi was the previous capital before Bangkok, located on the west site of Chao Phraya river. This trip will take you to see the ancient temple which brings alive back by maintaining the memories of the past and traditional ways of life. We'll also hop on a local boat rides and see what are there along the river.
Meet up at BTS Bang Wa Station Exit 1
We will buy the food for alms offering at the local shop, and then, we'll move to the waterside and wait for a monk rowing a paddle boat passing by. We'll offer him the food that we bought by putting it into his alms bowl. The monk will give us blessings in return. Next, to complete the Buddhist traditional way, we'll pour the water of dedication to whom we love (mostly for those who passed away).
I'll take you to have local breakfast at a signature restaurant.
We'll take a long-tailed boat to visit Wat Ratcha Orotsaram Temple. The royal temple's name means "The temple that was renovated by the King's son (who was later crowned as King Rama 3)". You'll see the magnificent chapel and the image of the Reclining Buddha.
Next, we'll continue the boat ride to Wat Park Num Pa Si Charoen , which has a very beautiful interior. This temple is also well-known as a model temple for meditation. We can try to meditate as a Buddhist or go to a museum in the temple area.
We'll go to Talat Phlu community and walk around to observe local life. Did you know that Talat Phlu is also famous for Thai food and dessert? Let's get some or we can have lunch here if you want!
Our trip ends here and you will be dropped off at Wutthakat BTS Station
