A fun day at a local floating market with my Grandma in Bangkok

That one local tour you should never miss, when traveling in Bangkok. Khlong Lad Mayom is one of the most authentic floating markets in Bangkok where all the locals gather to trade their goods. Several vendors will row boats their way from home to sell delicious foods and fresh produces.

Taking a boat ride around the local neighbourhood and enjoying the local vibe, be fascinated by the unique surroundings. BUT, what if you can learn how make one of the most famous Thai dishes, like ‘Pad Thai’ from someone who have experienced cooking the dishes for centuries?

A local site with a local cookery? How awesome would that be?
