9.5 from 2 reviews
Ban bat, a handmade-monk-bowl community for a hundred years, they were forced to quit due to the start of factory. Now only five families still continues making the monk bowl. Kudeejeen, a historical community situated beside the canals of Bangkok. It is also known as a multi-religion community where locals often have multiple religions. Kudeejeen is a unique place where different cultures co-exist together peacefully. It is also one the few communities that still preserves their architectural and cultural heritage.

Amazing look into real lives in Bangkok!

I loved that we got to meet locals, hear their stories, and even be invited into their homes. The food was amazing. Hollie and her team were incredibly nice and super knowledable. We learned SO much about so many parts of the culture. I love LocalAlike’s mission to give back to the communities and offer tours based on the feedback and involvement of the people who actually live in those communities. It made me feel glad to be contributing to their ideas rather than just being some random tourist barging in on their lives. It was a truly special experience.
