TRIP TO BANGKOK BANG KHUN THIAN!
 


Leaving Bangkok for Bang Khun Thian we will stop in at Wat Hua Krabeu, known for its shrine made of buffalo heads and as an aside, a resting place for numerous Mercedes benz.

Then we pay a visit to Khlong Pittayalongkorn School to see the community museum, wander around raised pathways through the mangroves, and learn a little about this unique school environment.

Forget all the wonderful dining experiences you’ve had in Bangkok, our next stop offers something completely different. Bangkok Seaview Restaurant requires that we take a long-tail boat to lunch out in the Gulf of Thailand.

During the 20-minute journey to what is basically a big platform on bamboo stilts, we will pass through a mangrove forest where you see all sorts of birds and get a glimpse into the lifestyles of people living by (and on) the river.

Cost of lunch is additional, approximately THB 500.  Note: this is a seafood restaurant. www.bangkokseaview.com  There may also be a small charge for the school visit.
 
The trip will depart from Au Bon Pain, M-Thai Tower, All Seasons , Thanon Whittayu (Wireless Rd)
BTS: Ploenchit then approx 400m down Wireless Rd on the left towards Lumphini Park.
 
The trip is limited to 18 people due to transport requirements.
