Long Description: 
It's hectic, it's crowded, it's the epitome of diversity and filled to the brim with exciting things to see and do. Joseph takes a path less traveled as he explores Thailand's capital city -- Bangkok. During his urban adventure he wanders the back roads and waterways of old and new Bangkok. He participates in morning Buddhist rituals at a local temple, checks out an up-to-date wellness center, tries his hand at the ancient art of crafting a monk's alms bowl, roasts Thai coffee at a 100-year-old Chinese market and scours a local Thai market for the perfect indigenous ingredients to spice up his gourmet Thai cooking class.
