Don't know of workshops, but you might try cruising around on the Chao Phraya express boats. You can cruise around until you spot an area that perks your interest.

The orange flag boats charge 13 baht for any trip. There is a "tourist boat", for 150 baht, that gives you unlimited rides, but the boats and stops are limited.

I recently received an email flier from Gavin Gough, a local professional photographer whose photos are often seen in publications such as Bangkok 101. He's leading several tours in SE Asia, one or more of which may interest you. www.gavingough.com

Also look at Bangkok Photography School to see if they'll hold any activities while you're in Thailand: http://www.bangkokphotoschool.com/

Also, I suggest you Google your search as you may find even more offerings. Enjoy.

Travel Tips for Bangkok

The importance of religion in Thailand

by phil_uk_net

The younger generation in Thailand may have lost touch a little with their religion but it is very important to the older people.
While at the Grand Palace I watched this old woman enter the grounds and walk with great difficulty, using a stick which she clung on to with gnarled hands, to get to the Temple of the Emerald Buddha so that she could pray.

One of the objectives I set,...

by Hambonekid

One of the objectives I set, and achieved, was the purchase of custom made suits. I purchased high quality silk and gabardine mens suits, sport jackets and slacks for les than half of what I would have paid in the United States. The service was very special and I am more than satisfied with the merchandise and have purchased 2 more suits by mail. The photo on this page is of me in one of my silk sport coats, shirt and tie with slacks. This complet outfit cost $350 USD. The absence of politics and racial discrimination. The pleasantness of the people permeates the country everywhere you go. You are welcomed and made to feel a part of the culture. I hired a taxi all day and each day I was in Thailand. It cost $75 USD per day. I honestly felt that the driver sincerely emphasized my satisfaction first and honestly believed the price to be fair. This was particularly beneficial in that we had convenient access to airconditioned transportation in 95-100 degree temperatures, with 95% humidity everyday.

Muang Boran - Old Market

by Audrey118

The Old Market Town or Talad Bok was recreated give the vistiro the feel of the old days in Thailand community ... somehow it gave me memories of back in my childhood days in Kuala Lumpur city...although there are lots of differences.
There are shops selling all kinds of goods - goldsmith complete with the small cupboards. barber shop. opium den etc.

There are also examples of entertainment centers such as theaters and casinos, puppet shows etc. There are also religious monuments like the spirit houses standing side by side in the community.

The residential quarters in the old market town are inspired by those standing along the ancient road in Tak Province together with the local shops in Kamphaeng Phet. The traditional Thai houses are taken from an old community in Yan Nawa, Bangkok. You can buy some souveniers here...I particularly liked the wooden birds with the wings strapped by elastic fishing line...when the wind blows it flaps~!!!!

Religions

by Arjaree

About 95% of Thais are buddhist. However, Thais tend to respect all religions. You will see many buddhists go to a Hindu temple, a Chinese one, or even a church.

In the pic, it's the main Hindu temple in Silom area. We call it "Wat Khaek". There are always people going there to pay a respect and pray.

For Thais, sometimes it's not just about the religion you're labeled to have since you were not yet born. It's about superstitious beliefs. It's about respect.

PS It's somehow popular for some Westerners who decorate their yard, bathroom, or whatsoever, with a buddha image. That behavior is considered disrespect to our religion and ALL buddhists. So if you happen to know someone who have such a decors style, maybe you can help them out.

Soft sleeveless for the hot Bangkok!

by yen_2

Bring a small luggage if you want to buy in Bangkok since you will find this place cheap when you get here. Wear soft sleeveless shirts and shorts for sightseeings. Bring your favorite and comfortable sandal. But in going to palaces you have to dress properly. Dress code is properly imposed though. There are english pharmacies and english hospitals in Bangkok and have excellent facilities. Most of the private hospitals, wealthy Thai families go. Drop-in visits are welcome and are not expensive. Expect 200-600 baht($8-$12). Bring digi cams, cameras, video cams. There are alot of sightseeings that are worth a visit and that you need to have your souvenier pix!
