    You will pass a range of local wooden stilt houses with clothes hanging to be dried in the sun, a local "7 eleven", klong style. Feel the atmosphere of having entered the klongs.
    You will hear Thai music being played from the houses, you will see birds looking at the trespassing boats, if you are lucky you will spot one of the sunbathing lizards.
    The first stop is at the temple Wat Khun Chan where you will be inspired by the postmodern temples on one side of the klongs and the feeling of old days on the other with the beauty of the river crossing through the landscape. From there it's onwards to the artist place, with old wooden walkways with artists, an old barber shop, an old grocery, vintage posters, colors of freedom, and a small stupa licking the sunlight. Feel the quietness surrounding this place.
    You will continue to the orchid farm where your guide will share his thorough knowledge about the orchids and how to make a lunch pack with materials found in the nature – a quite amazing place. A stop will be made where you can feed holy Catfish. It's a remarkable sight when hundreds of fish come to the surface seemingly out of nowhere!
    Upon leaving the klongs you will see several houses on stilts and how locals live in small houses on the river. Then we leave the quietness and get back to noisy, Chao Phraya river and the majestic grand palace. The trip ends at pier 9 (the Grand Palace pier).
