We will meet at O.P. Garden, formerly known as Mango Tree, Charoenkrung Soi 36, at 2 pm. It is located on the right-hand side of Soi 36, about 50 meters from Charoenkrung. Here we will hear a bit about the start of The East Asiatic Company in Thailand over a coffee.
We will then walk about 300 m. to the Company’s old head office. We can only see the building from the outside. We will then take the express boat from the pier in front of the EAC office to Wat Rajsingkorn.
From there we will walk about 500 m. to the Protestant cemetery, where we will talk about some of the Scandinavians interred here, who have made a contribution to history in Thailand.
From the cemetery we will walk to Asiatique where we will identify some of the buildings that used to be part of EAC’s activities in the past.
We will end the exploration with dinner at Brick Bistro, located in the middle of Asiatique.
There will be no participation fee as participants will pay for their own coffee and dinner. However, for logistical purposes, we need to know who will participate not later than Monday 22nd January.
Please advise whether you will participate in the dinner or only in the tour.
