Starting from BTS Siam Station, we will visit Pathum Wanaram Temple, which was built in 1857. Hidden among the buildings in the busy town, this is where you can make merit and experience the peacefulness amidst the bustling city. Next, we go to the Jim Thompson House where it used to be a resident of an American who moved to live in Thailand in 1946. With his teak-wood Thai-styled houses, he collected many valuable Thai antiques and made the Thai silk industry become world-famous. After having a lunch at Jim Thompson Restaurant, we will walk to Chulalongkorn University, the oldest university in Thailand which was established in 1917. I will take you to see the statues of two Thai Kings, the auditorium, five Chamchuri trees, traditional Thai-styled buildings and the university museum. Then, we will walk back to MBK Center to try the best Thai coconut custard toast bread. This bakery has been opened for over 5 decades. Then, we head to Bangkok Art and Culture Centre (BACC) where you can find many artworks from both Thai and International artists. Come along with me and I will show you the other shade of Central Bangkok you have never seen before!
Sa-Was-Dee-Krub (Hello! in Thai). I’m Taro, a co-founder of TakeMeTour. My goal is to host travelers from around the world with the best authentic experience in Thailand like never before (yes, believe me!). My best co-host (called Boat) will take you on this trip. He's been living in Pathumwan district for 35 years, and his home is very close to the Jim Thompson House. He knows every angle of this area (the history and also the best local food). Therefore, he's proud to present that his neighborhood is not only well-known as the business area, but it’s also full of history and art. With his passion for storytelling and the experience of being Local Expert for 2 years, you will have an unbelievable experience with him!
