Description

Few are the channels that remained operational and were not closed to make roads ... these channels are still the pivot on which this part of the city is still "slow", from the livable pace.
You will see through the canals the many temples, large and small, torn or renewed, that still overlook Thonburi's canals. Once more than places of prayer were first of all gathering places, children's education, and more.

What you'll see at Khlong Mon is a glimpse of everyday life, as it should have been many years ago, with monks in faded orange tunics and slow-moving people who still smell as they clean up the fish they cook from there, a few minutes.

Houses on sunny slopes, flowered balconies, swings on the river, and so much real life, so much wood and little cement, all very characteristic, if you want to see Bangkok with another eye, no horrible palaces and useless skyscrapers this is your trip.
