LOCAL IMPACT

By joining this tour, we’ll help the local community by:

– This tour helps preserve local cultural heritage by visiting sites of cultural importance including Wat Traimit Temple, Yaowarat Chinatown Heritage Centre which is rarely visited by tourists, and Wat Mangkon Kamalawat. – – Although there is no entrance fee at Wat Mangkon, Urban Adventures make a 50 THB donation per group which goes toward helping maintain the site.
– We will also visit a 90-year-old coffee shop on this tour, supporting a 4th generation family business who continue to serve traditional Thai teas, coffees, and snacks that they built their heritage on.
