Overview

Welcome to the heart of Old Siam. Today, we will guide you through some of Bangkok’s most interesting neighborhoods; places that most visitors to the city will never experience. As many of these sites lie outside the regular tourist circuit, they are often overlooked and, in many cases, terribly neglected. Charming wooden palaces rot and entire neighborhoods are slated for demolition. Through these tours we hope to bring life back to these heritage sites, and preserve them. As His Majesty King Bhumibol has said:

Old places are the fame of the nation, and even a small piece of brick has value that should be preserved.

Just by walking through these neighborhoods you demonstrate the worth of the historical buildings and monuments found within. Visitors like you are needed to revitalize local economies and encourage government officials to protect the heritage of the city. Thank you for taking the time to help us in our effort.
