Not far from Bangkok there is a hidden old town called Ampher Klong Suan. The town is divided into 2 parts ; one is under Samut Prakan Province and the other one is under Chacheungsao.
Bangkok was known to the world as Venice of the East as people traveled in boats in earlier days. Klong Saun was once the logistic hub of this southeastern region transporting goods to Bangkok. Most of the shops were built almost 100 years ago by wood and still remain in good condition. The present generation people are reserving their parents property well. As you walk thru the walk way you won’t realize that you are in the digital world in 21st century but feeling like it is 50 years old backward. Most of the shop owners are Chinese descendants who have continued their parents business since the parents settle down here in the Kingdom of Siam (Thailand used to be called Siam). There are a lot of traditional Thai as well as Chinese food to try as you stroll along, but cannot be missed is coffee at “Pae Lee” (Old Man Lee) who has been selling traditional coffee before the WWII. Until today he still has the same shop, selling the same taste of coffee.
The trip continues southeast of Bangkok to Chacheungsao. Though it is located only 50 kms from Bangkok. No high-rise building, but wooden shops and houses. Visit Wat Luang Po Sothorn and then we take you on a big boat, riding along the Banpakong River. As Enjoy the boat slow goes, enjoy the peaceful atmosphere, observing people on the river bank before we depart for Bangkok.
