This walk gives you an introductory look at the historic area surrounding the mouth of Bangkok Noi, one of the Thai capital's most important waterways.
Starting at the Pinklao Bridge, we'll walk through the grounds of storied Thammasat University, home to one of Bangkok's darkest and most violent crackdowns, before crossing the Chao Phraya River on a noisy-yet-charming river ferry.
Get your snack on at the well-known Wang Lang market before walking through the grounds of Siriaj Hospital, where you can check out the (in)famous forensics museum, one of Bangkok's strangest attractions. This is not for the squeamish, but we guarantee you've never seen a museum quite like this before - and what a story to bring back home! Note that the museum is closed Tuesdays.
After that, take in an historic park while you get an explainer on what, exactly, Bangkok Noi is, and why it was such an important part of Bangkok's early development, back when it really was the "Venice of the East".
We'll then check out the Royal Barge Museum before walking through a neighborhood that has character and local charm in spades. We finish off with a visit to a beautiful but seldom-visited Ayutthaya-era temple, before taking the boat (or walking, up to you!) back across the river.
