#Bangkok: Rural Culinary Experience in a Fishing Village

Your experience begins with a visit to the mangrove forest to take in beautiful views of the Gulf of Thailand and get an understanding of the importance of mangroves in preserving the environment. You will then visit the local salt farm to learn how salt is formed.

Next, you'll drive back to the pier and take a boat together with your host Pink to visit the Saen Tor community and learn about the history and culture of this fishing village in the Bang Khun Thian district. Pink will take you to an organic seawater pond where shrimp, fish, crab, and cockles grow naturally. Wade in this seawater pond (100cms at its deepest) to pick cockles or explore via a kayaking trip!

You can wash off after your swim before returning to Auntie Sim’s beautiful house right on the water with a great view of the bay. Walk through her garden and pick up Thai herbs to use in the meal that you will prepare together. Learn how to make central Thai and Thai-Chinese dishes in your host's outdoor kitchen. After cooking, you will go upstairs to their rooftop terrace and enjoy the lunch you helped prepare over delightful conversation and a stunning view of the water!
