Enjoy a fascinating tour that is unlike anything else you experience in Bangkok. It is so refreshing to step outside the usual tourist hotspots and experience the real lives of locals.
This expedition will be part of generating a community development fund to ensure that every traveler's spending goes to support local people to develop their agricultural products together with agro-tourism.
In the morning your guide will meet you at your hotel and then you will take public transport to Hua Lamphong or Bangkok railway station.
Enjoy the scenic view along the way. We will get off at Wat Suwan station, Nakhon Pathom province, the neighbor of Bangkok. Next, we will walk to the Mahasawat canal pier.
The canal tour now begins. First, you will see a Lotus Farm or Water Lilly Farm, where you can pick lotus flowers by yourself. You will also get a chance to try paddling the boat.
Then you will learn how to cook the best local snack Rice Crackers.
Lunch will be served at a local restaurant.
After lunch, we will continue our journey by taking a local boat to visit an organic fruit farm.
