A Busy Travel Day In Thailand: Cooking – Cycling – Shopping
Get into the best of Thailand for a day. Be part of the buzz & bright lights of Bangkok before a change of scene in the Mekong with its rice paddy & sugar fields & coconut palms.
In the morning, you can attend in Thailand cooking class in the morning to learn how to cook Thai foods with local teacher, there are many of food in the menu for you to choose such as: tom yum, pad thai, khaw neaw ma muang…In this class you also have opportunity to enjoy the journey to the traditional market to buy the fresh ingredient, prepare for cooking. This is also the best way for you to learn how the prices and how to bargain in Thailand (I recommend it because it will bring you many benefits for other part of your trip). In each class you will have opportunity to understand more about Thai culinary culture.
In the afternoon you can rent a bicycle, call taxi or walk yourself to discover the city. You will have 4 hour to cycle around the city and if you can you should hire a guide who can lead you and tell you the history of the destinations. You will have a chance to discover a lot of highlights attractions such as: Old Custom House, Wat Chakrawat, Chinatowwn, Pak Khlong Talat, Chao Phraya River, Wat Arun…
After dinner, ask your Trip Manager about Bangkok’s ins and outs. Get some pointers before uncovering laid-back sidewalk beer gardens, hip clubs or cocktail bars during a fun night out.
You could scan the streets around the mythical travellers’ hub of Khao San Road. Rummage through the markets and flex your bargaining skills negotiating for some fake designer goods, handicrafts, music or jewellery.
Otherwise, jump in a tuk-tuk and hit the eye-opening Patpong Night Market, with its neon lights and buzzing street life.
