What you'll do

We will meet at Pak Nam sky train station (BTS). From our meeting point we'll walk to the fish market of Pak Nam. On the way we'll pass a Thai and a Chinese temple. If you like we can stop to have a look around and to take some pictures. Pak Nam market is one of Thailand's biggest fish markets. It's a lively and busy area in which fresh fish is sold right of the boats at various areas. We'll be walking around and I'd be happy to explain you what's going on at the market at the time of our visit. After that we'll board a ferry to cross the Chao Praya river to Prasamut Jedee. Here we will visit an old stupa in a small park on the banks of the Chao Praya river that is part of a temple complex. The stupa is more than 200 years old, well known for local inhabitants and beautifully lit at night. We continue our walk and use a walking bridge to enter onto an island that has an old fortress overlooking the Chao Praya delta and the sea. The little island is inhabited by thousands of bats that fly out when the sun sets. We take the ferry back to Pak Nam. From the pier it is a little walk towards a charming street with lots of street food to enjoy.

Where you'll be

All the areas we visit are not yet discovered by many people, making our trip unique. Pak Nam fish market is bustling with economic activity. To some, Pak Nam may be a little like Bangkok back in time. The fresh breeze on the ferry is great and views from the boat are amazing. Prasamut Jedee is a tranquil area and the nature on the little island we visit is a break from busy Bangkok. Great street food in a charming little street.
