- A hidden gem that even few Thai people know about
- Get a flavour of authentic rural Thai life
- Learn the art of cockle picking
See another side of Thailand with this enjoyable day-tour out of the capital, led by an enthusiastic guide. You’ll visit a tranquil seashore community in the Bangkhunthien district, on the Gulf of Thailand, which can be reached only by boat. If you’re looking to get away from it all for a while, this is the perfect idea! While in the village there’s a range of traditional rural activities available to you, including cockle picking on the beach and exploring the mangrove forest, or even hiring kayaks for a little light exercise while you sightsee!
A cookery lesson unfolds to a fresh seafood lunch, and you’ll also have the opportunity to explore a local salt farm on this Bangkok gift experience - watch how organic sea salt is harvested according to generations of practise, and then take a walk through the surf for a natural salt foot spa! This is a great day out if you want to relax in a scenic environment and learn about traditional rural Thailand ways of life.
