What you'll do

The main attraction of this tour is the White Temple. If you’re looking for ancient ruins, you might be surprised to find a modern architectural masterpiece designed and built by local artist Chaloemchai Khositphiphat. The Blue Temple or Wat Rong Seua Ten literally translates to ‘temple of the dancing tiger.’ It was built on a site where tigers were said to have jumped over the river. If the White Temple was meant to be a stairway to heaven, the Black House has been called a “dark, mysterious, and almost sadistic” representation of hell, complete with preserved animals and a collection of bones. Built by Thailand national artist Thawan Duchanee (who incidentally was the mentor of Chaloemchai, the White Temple guy), the Baan dam Museum (Black House) is a cluster of nearly 40 small shadowy structures exhibiting art dating back to the Ayutthaya period. This is truly something the likes of which we’ll never see anywhere else!

Your hosts

Hello, my name is Nice and I was born and raised in Thailand! One of my passions is to take people around and tell them about my country and culture. Along with my other tour guide friends, Bonnie (who has a lot of experience showing tourists around), Sam (who is highly knowledgeable about Thailand's history), and Kwan (who knows how to take awesome photos), we want to provide you with an authentic experience that you'll never forget. While we have partnered with TripGuru, a digital tour operator, our tours are all locally curated by my team, and are authentic and unique. So we invite you to join our tours, see things from our perspective, and allow us to show you our home our way. We look forward to meeting you!
