Floating Market
“Just few kilometres outside Bangkok but still far enough to not yet have been converted into a full scale tourist attraction is the charming Taling Chan Floating Market. It has everything you need to spend a good half day without having to book a tour and it is far more genuine than the big famous markets. Here you can enjoy a great seafood lunch sitting on the floor with the locals, ride a longtail boat around the nearby klongs (canals) for a 100 baht, do a bit of silly shopping and a lot of food tasting. You can even get a foot massage under the trees for only 200 baht! Enjoy it while it still feels 'local' as it already started to change.”

Restaurant
“Eat Sight Story is a quirky new spot that serves delicious Thai fusion cuisine and an exciting array of cocktails, complete with views of Wat Arun and the Chao Phraya River. It is a delightful surprise hidden down an alleyway, quite unassuming and you might not find it if you didn’t know what you were looking for. It’s the ideal spot to relax and watch the colours of the sunset reflected in the river, then admire the sparkling evening lights of the temples.”
