Details

Here is the answer to the mystery!

We will meet on the platform of the Victory Monument BTS Station. Go out Exit #3 and walk towards the monument, we will meet at the first left turn of the platform. DO NOT GO DOWN TO THE STREET...

From here we will visit the area that is famous for its "boat noodles", of course the boats are long gone but the noodles live on...we will make our way through the community along the Samsen Canal until we reach Wat Makok (Wat Makok is also known Wat Apai Tharam) ,where we will spend some time before continuing through the community.

The final destination of this walk is a treat for all including most Thais who have never visited the Phya Thai Palace. This beautifully restored King's residence has a rich history all the way back to King Rama 6 who was born in 1880 and reigned over Thailand from 1910 to 1925. This palace started as farm and later became a complete small city called Dusit Thani under his direction.

We hope you will join us for this unique walk which will continue to be a mystery if you do not...See you on Sunday!!!
