Within, the 58-metre chedi houses a Buddha relic and welcomes worshippers all year round to see the view Bangkok from the bird eyes view. Continue walk to Baan Bat or Monk's Bowl Village, the small village with an age-old crafting the bowls from raw steel using only their hands and a hammer. There are a valuable offbeat path discovery of Bangkok. Then we will walk to Mahakan Fort, behind the walls of the fortress will see that the neighboring village is a living heritage museum.

 Activities and Experiences:

  • Golden Mount & Wat Saket

To the reach the top of the Golden Mount, you must ascend an exhausting 318 steps. On a clear day, the view from the top includes old Rattanakosin Island and the rooftops of Bangkok. 

  • Handmade Monk's Alm Bowl Community

Literally translated as ‘house of monk’s alm bowl’, Bann Bat is perhaps the last existing place in Bangkok that still hammers out – by hand. Nowadays less than five households continue to make a living selling their craft. The community originally fled war in Ayutthaya to take refuge in Bangkok and although the community has declined due to the introduction of factory produced Bat, there are still a small number of families making alm bowl in the traditional way.

  • Living Heritage Musuem at Mahakan Fort

The whitewashed Mahakan Fort is one of two surviving citadels that defended the old walled city. This small community of wooden houses and living musuem has been here for more than 100 years, but since the mid-1990s it has fought the Bangkok municipal government’s plan to demolish it and create a ‘tourist’ park.

 Be Responsible:

This program will encourage the visitor to be a Responsible Traveler. In environmental aspect, we offer to use public transportation to deduce the carbon impact. In social impact, you will support Baan Bat community to keep working on their own way of cultural conservation. Also you will support Mahakan Fort community to make more value of co-creation to weight up and convince the government to cancel their project which they would like to build public park instead of community with history, cultures and local wisdom.
