Did you know?
Underwater Temple - Sangkhlaburi, Kanchanaburi
Did you know Wang Wiwekaram Temple?

You may have heard about this place by its other names like "Sunken Temple" or "Underwater Temple". This place is one of the Unseen Thailand spot because some parts of this temple remain submerged under the water. From around March to June, during dry season, the water level of Song Karia drops so that a small island forms where the visitors can walk around the ruins of the temple.

While most of the year, only the upper section of old ordination hall and bell tower are above the water. From the local boat, this gives tourist a like-no-other photo shot from this charming underwater temple.

Food corner
Kuay Taew Kua Kai
(Stir-fried flat rice noodles with garlic oil, chicken and egg)
  An alternative dish for noodle lover if Pad Thai or Pad See-ew already bored you, why not giving a try on one of famous street foods - Kuay Taew Kua Kai.

Though its ingredient is nothing fancier than rice noodle, garlic, oil, chicken and egg, it has a unique flavour and charcoal smell from wok cooking. The smell could be more tempting if cooked on traditional charcoal stove.

"Midnight food tour by Tuk Tuk"

Date: 5 Mar 20
Time: 07.00PM - 11.00PM
Operating days: Daily

This tour gives customer a chance to enjoy Thai local dishes and to finish the food tour with the most beautiful night view of Wat Arun (Temple of Dawn) from the rooftop bar. The restaurants included in the program has been pre-selected because of the interesting story behind their success.

It takes us full 4 hours to stroll around Bangkok street by a lovely Tuk Tuk, starting from local E-saan (Northeastern Thai recipe) shop at Yellow Bridge area (in Thai "Sapan Lueng"), Michelin Guide Kuay Teaw Kua Kai, flower market, Wat Po, Pad Thai restaurant and rooftop bar.
Tour starts at 07.00 PM at the meeting point near MRT Sam Yan station. The tour guide gave us an overview of the itinerary and checking for any food restrictions, and of course the level of spiciness each one can bear. Our Tuk Tuk driver was introduced, the same Tuk Tuk used along the trip and dropped us back at the hotel at the end.
Not only that we enjoyed sumptuous street food, but the tour gives us a new perspective of Bangkok at night. The temperature and traffic was much relaxing than day time.
We ended our trip with charming view of Wat Arun at night before Tuk Tuk dropped us back at the hotel.
How do we rate this experience?

"Nice food! The tour was organized in just-the-right pace,
highly recommended for Thai food lovers"
