Visit Thai Puppet Artist House by The Canal
This trip will take you to explore the secret puppet artist house, tugged away on a canal where simple life is lived and preserved by locals.
Why this trip?
It's fun. It's lazy. It's Bangkok.
How local is it?
I don't know any farangs (foreigners) who has knowledge about this place except for the ones who had been there already. The artist house is the 'no tourists', 'no fake' type. They live there and practice the puppet show there.
What makes it unique?
Bangkok is a big crazy city you do always get lost and get confused. But, this simple and peaceful life co-exists here with nature and art the artists at puppet house are trying their best to preserve.
Meet up at BTS Station (Ratchathewi)
Arrive at original Chinese style coffee house for coffee and/ or brunch
Visit the Giant Swing, learn about fun facts of the swing ceremony. Visit surrounding attractions, Wat Suthat Thep Wararam, Lan Kon Mueng/ City Hall and Hindu temple
After a bit of scouting for street food, we arrive at the puppet artist house for the show around 2.00 pm (by tuktuk to boat in the river if there are at least 2 participants, if not, we will go by taxi)
Chill out. Enjoy the sun over the canal, painting masks, doing arts or observe people along the canal
