This was so popular last year that we are doing it again!

Klong Toey has much more to see than the famous 24-hour market on Rama IV. This is truly an adventure not to be missed!

RoyRak Creative is a fair trade organization dedicated to helping the local families who live in the slums of Klong Toey earn income by making crafts. This small group from the Klong Toey community designs and makes jewellery to sell in Thailand and around the world. "RoyRak" means "bead love" in the Thai language and that's what this Creative is all about—bringing out the best in the community and sharing it with others.

On this adventure you will experience the following:
  • Songtaeow transport to and from the Ekamai Eastern Bus Terminal (Ekamai BTS)
  • Walking tour through the Klong Toei community in small groups (bring your photographic eyes)
  • Morning coffee/tea and snack
  • A "Stories of Hope" presentation about the project works
  • A bracelet-making workshop with RoyRak
  • Shopping opportunity with special promotions
  • Amazing lunch from local caterers, I’m Tasty Food Company

What to wear/bring: Wear comfortable clothing and comfortable walking shoes. Bring an open heart and small bills if you plan on buying anything.

When you register, please indicate whether you require vegetarian food.

We look forward to seeing you, so please sign up!
Leader: Sue, active@awcthailand.org

Location: Meet at BTS Ekamai (details will come in your confirmation email)
