We go for a walk tour (+public transport) in the historical heart of Bangkok where lies traditional Thai temples date back to the very beginning of Rattanakosin period. Enjoy the art and history behind the concept of Thai architecture! :)
Why this trip?
Hi! I study Thai architecture and would love to take you for the tour in the historic part of the city! Its rather small area and full of old temples, so which temple to visit is up to your interest. I also enjoy taking photos, so free photo service!
Things to prepare for the trip
You will need to cover your shoulders or wear shirt with sleeves. Shorts are not recommended. Best to wear something that cover your knees. (this apply to both male and female) And it's going to be hot, so prepare for the heat!

We start our walking tour in the historical area of Bangkok. Where to go is up to your suggestions! There are those of the must-visit places and where there are less tourists and the mostly locals go to visit. (and I suggest we go on foot, mostly!)

The best way to know the city
Pim was a wonderful guide. I visit the Grand Palace, Wat Pho, Bangkok museum and Wat Arun. It was a nice insight of the city center. I would recomended to anyone.
Pim was a wonderful guide. Even before we met for the tour she was great about establishing contact and answering all my questions. She was very knowledgeable about the architecture of the buildings we went to visit. In addition, she helped me to understand about the different buildings and areas within each temple compound. She also explained about the customs and culture associated with the temples which aided me to have a much greater understanding of how to behave and also why certain events and mannerisms occur. Great trip! I hope to be able to go on more tours with her.
