Bye Bye Chinatown was a photo exhibition that raised awareness about the gentrification of one of the world’s largest, most authentic and most successful Chinatowns. Overlooked by big corporations and devoid of the symbols of internationalism, this unique ancient commercial district is hailed by many as the last authentic part of Bangkok. However with the coming of the new subway line, this unique and historic aspects of Bangkok is bound to undergo a unprecedented transformation as investors and government are zeroing in on developing the area.
This unique urban walk dives right into the heart and DNA of what is known as Sampeng and Yaowarat to learn about the city’s success story and the challenges to balance progress and conservation. Much of what you see and experience can be labeled as limited-edition but we also want to bring you in touch with conservation initiatives. Will Bangkok manage to be a city of the future while retaining the distinct characteristics of its diverse historic, ethnic and cultural heritage and communities? This experience will give you food for thought.
I felt like I was a part of the everyday life of a vibrant, energetic, and cosmopolitan city. Where most tours look at an aspect of a culture, this tour allows its participants to be part of the culture
This tour is highly recommended if you like tours with that personal touch ,small group, very helpful and friendly staff throughout the process of booking .really enjoyed our day would have done the 360 tour as well but run out of time.
“Great for first timers and Bangkok veterans”
Well, all I can say is, awesome. We did the Starters tour today with Mu. It was great. We had high expectations due to the TripAdvisor reviews, and the tour fit the bill.
If you want to see the real Bangkok, "local" style than this is the best possible way for you to do it.
