An exploration of Bangkok's old downtown area by tuk-tuk, a familiar feature on the city roads. Duration of tour: 5 hours
Depart from the lobby of the Viengtai Hotel for the Phra Sumen Fortress where we board a tuk-tuk, a familiar sight amongst Bangkok traffic. Passing Thammasat University we alight at the Amulet Market where religious charms and traditional medicines are traded. Following this a visit is made to Wat Po, the oldest of Bangkok temples where the art of Thai massage has been taught and still practiced. Continue by tuk-tuk to Phahurat market, Bangkok's 'little India', dealing in cloths, ornaments and accessories, and where an Indian snack can be picked up from street vendors. Following this the character changes to Chinese with a visit of Woeng Nakorn Kasem, also known as the 'Thieves Market'. The final stop will be made at Wat Saket, formerly used mainly for cremations. Its outstanding feature is the 'Golden Mount', a chedi atop an artificial hill. The tour terminates here.
