Understanding Thai Roots by learning about their beliefs in a unique local community where the locals have their devotion towards both Buddhism and animism. We will take you to visit Wat Arun, one of the most significant landmarks in Bangkok and Wat Nak Klang Worawihan Temple and a local community hidden in Thonburi then cruise on the historic canal where you can observe a traditional way of living. This tour explains the mixed beliefs which still practiced in Thai everyday life. As Buddhism is the major religion in Thailand however, some part of Thai Buddhism has also been integrated with local folk beliefs.  Local Thai cultures and beliefs are majorly influenced by faith in supernatural forces or spiritual beings, which are generally known as “ghosts”. These ghost stories were rooted in Thais' minds from the very beginning of Thai culture. On this tour, you can experience and observe various belief objects that are believed to bestow different benefits for Thai worshippers!
