Day 2: Bangkok
Wake up and enjoy your breakfast, then decide whether to continue chilling out or head out to explore the city. You'll probably be a little jet-lagged, so we recommend walking around your new neighborhood - one of Bangkok's oldest. Head down and check out the river (we recommend experiencing Thai food and a drink at Jack's Bar right on the river which is walking distance from Chamberlain Hostel. Then maybe head back to Chamberlain Hostel and take a quick nap before your adventure to explore Bangkok's Chinatown begins!

From Chamberlain Hostel, we'll venture north by public bus or tuk-tuk to the heart of night-time Chinatown and explore the secrets of this bustling neighborhood. On this 4-hour trip, we experience the wave of life on Yaowarat Road that mixes locals and foreign tourists alike. We'll taste multiple dishes that are loved by Thai and Chinese people alike. We'll try the spicy stuff, indulge in the sweet deserts, hear stories about the dishes, and talk to the food sellers and lovers around us. In between, we'll explore the less-traveled side-streets and hidden alleys for temples, local customs, and the behind-the-scenes of this world-famous foodie haven.

If you still have space, we'll finish our trip with some local desserts and your guide will bid you farewell around 21:30. You can choose to continue exploring Chinatown on your own or return to your hotel to prepare for tomorrow!

Day 3: Bangkok
Wake up and enjoy your breakfast, and then get ready to see the most authentic side of Bangkok. You'll meet your guide at Chamberlain, who will accompany you to the nearby pier to board our long tail boat. From here you’ll move down the Chao Phraya, the main river in Bangkok, with amazing backdrop views of the Bangkok skyline, before making a turn to enter the klongs. You will pass a range of local wooden stilt houses with clothes hanging to be dried in the sun, a local "7 eleven", klong style. Feel the atmosphere of having entered the klongs. You will hear Thai music being played from the houses, you will see birds looking at the trespassing boats, if you are lucky you will spot one of the sunbathing lizards.

The first stop is at the temple Wat Khun Chan where you will be inspired by the postmodern temples on one side of the klongs and the feeling of old days on the other with the beauty of the river crossing through the landscape. From there it’s onwards to the Artist Village, with old wooden walkways with artists, an old barber shop, an old grocery, vintage posters, colors of freedom, and a small stupa licking the sunlight. Feel the quietness surrounding this place. A stop will be made where you can feed holy Catfish. It’s a remarkable sight when hundreds of fish come to the surface seemingly out of nowhere!

Upon leaving the klongs you will see several houses on stilts and how locals live in small houses on the river. Then we leave the quietness and get back to noisy, Chao Phraya river and the majestic grand palace. Your trip ends at Pier 9 on the Chao Phraya River, from where you you can visit the nearby temples on your own, continue to the shopping malls or return to your accommodation.
