Art and Culture of Bangkok’s Klong
Discover one of Bangkok’s fascinating art communities and visit the Baan Silapin gallery, travelling along the canal networks by longtail boat. This experience is an excellent insight into Bangkok’s cultural side, perfect for arts & crafts buffs.
This half day experience begins in the early afternoon, where you will board a private longtail boat on the Chao Phraya River. From here, you will journey along Bangkok’s ancient canal network, sailing past houses, temples, and shops, witnessing many differing architectural styles. These different styles represent the varied heritage of the canals as they were former trading routes. The boat will stop at Baan Silapin, a 100-year-old house that has been refurbished and turned into a modern art gallery. Stroll around this artistic community which so wonderfully blends traditional houses, arts and crafts, and Thailand’s modern art scene. The craftsmen here also make exquisitely designed Thai puppets, and you might be lucky enough to witness a live puppet show. Head back to the longtail boat and cruise gentle back to town, stopping at the famous Wat Arun ‘Temple of Dawn’ on the way.
