No Meter!

There are plenty of good taxi drivers in Bangkok. However, there is no guarantee that you will find one. Even though it clearly states that they are Taxi Meters, some drivers rarely offer this option, especially when you are a tourist. Even when you do find a good taxi driver, the traffic is another issue all together. The traffic in Bangkok is no joke.

Mallika City Kanchanaburi – Ancient Siam

Lost in Time in Mallika City

malika city kanchanaburi

A tourism hot spot most interesting at this moment is Kanchanaburi province for its wide variety of places to go to, such as Mallika City, Sangkhla Buri district, the bridge over the River Kwai, Srinakarin Dam, underwater Temple Church at Wat Wang Wiwekaram, Erawan waterfall, or Thailand–Burma Railway Centre.  And to top that list, we recommend a small cozy town called Mallika R.E. 124 (or the Year 1905 A.D.)  (R.E. stands for Rattanakosin era.)

Today, we are taking you back in time in the reign of King Rama V, the year R.E. 124, when the town’s people were living by the Chao Phraya Basin in the beautiful town called Mallika.  We will highlight some of the most interesting things to explore.

1. Strolling over the Han bridge

The Han bridge earned its name from the way it was originally built from slabs of wooden boards long enough to extend the width of the waterway.  One end was nailed dead to the ground, while the other was not, so it can be swung to make way for the boats paddling down the waterway.  Then HM King Rama IV expressed his kindness to rebuild the bridge, redesigned to be made from a steel frame and padded down with wooden boards.  When HM King Rama V took the reign, was the bridge rebuilt with new design of wooden arch spans like that of the Rialto Bridge in Venice and Ponte Vecchio in Florence, Italy.

The Han Bridge brings back the memory of life along both shores from the past.  The merchants used to sail their boats bringing their merchandise to the market of people living ashore who came out of their Thai traditional-style houses.  In the present days, visitors can douse their hunger with authentic cuisines from the Thai restaurants along the shores.  All merchants are suited up in Thai traditional outfits that go together with the town’s arts and building styles that have been preserved through time.

2. Thai vintage clothing for rent

Mallika City Kanchanaburi is a vintage town, so visitors who are in the right mood can find rentals of vintage clothing to fit their size.  We must say that you should do so, just so you do not look out of place, because almost all tourists, officials, and merchants are all fitted out in vintage clothing. 

No need to bashful, as it is not often you can find a town like this.  We cannot stress how much fun this experience can bring you!  The rental price is as follows:

var _ning_embed = {“id”:”18″,”width”:728,”height”:90};

(1) Female

Price 200 THB: shawl, Thai loincloth, jewellery, belt and an umbrella

Price 300 THB: ham sleeved shirts, satin sash, Thai loincloth, jewellery, belt and an umbrella

(2) Male

Price 100 THB: Kui-heng shirt, Thai loincloth and waistband

Price 300 THB: royal patterned shirt, Thai loincloth

(3) Child

Price 50 THB: round basket collar shirt for girls, Kui-heng shirt for boys and Thai loincloth

Remark: All prices are subject to change on certain dates.

3. Be lugged around town

Pulled rickshaws are charming in a town like Mallika.  Back in the reign of King Rama V, the Chinese immigrants were the ones pulling them around town.  Visitors can get the service for just 50 THB per trip. 

Tickets are available at the ticket counter at the town centre.  Find out how it must have felt like in the old days when mostly well-to-do women used to be lugged around town in these pulled rickshaws.

4. Holed coins

The currency used in ancient Ayutthaya and Sukhothai was holed coins.  At Mallika City Kanchanaburi, they are also using those to buy products and services throughout the town. 

It is a rather strange experience but charming nevertheless.  The exchange rate is about 5 THB a satang, being the unit of currency of these holed coins, and there are 1, 2, 5, and 10 satang coins available.

5. A taste of authentic Thai cuisine

After getting tired from taking selfies and making your friends jealous, if you are hungry, the locals are ready to serve you authentic Thai dishes, food, desserts, drinks, fresh produce, dried fruits, and preserves.  There are so many shops to choose from beginning at the entrance down to the town centre.  Many make your order right in front of you.  Pick up the food, and feel free to walk around.  After the meal, take a look at the souvenir shops and take something back for the folks at home.

For those who want to shy away from the chaos in the city, come and relax in this old town that is well preserved through its history, Mallika City Kanchanaburi.  They are open from 09:00 – 18:00.  An all-day ticket for an adult is just 250 THB, and children/seniors just 120 THB.  A ticket for dinners and evening exhibitions for adults is 700 THB and children/seniors just 350 THB.
