Come join us and be the urban explorer that Bangkok was meant for by adventuring into some of the city’s most authentic and lively districts, as you’ll sample some of the world’s best street food! This food and culture trip through hidden Bangkok gives you the unique experience of commuting as a local by foot, express boat, and scooter taxi. It’s the ideal way to see a side of Bangkok you're unlikely to find on your own and get in-depth knowledge of the local communities, rich traditions, and enchanting cultures. This experience is for those who seek the perfect combination of authentic Bangkok street food and urban exploration and insight.

Express Boat & Local Experiences

Our driver picks you up at your Bangkok hotel and takes you to our Bangkok Office, where your adventure starts with an express cruise on the Chao Phraya River that flows through the heart of Bangkok. The River has a rich history, acting as a gateway to some of the capital's most interesting history and rich heritage sites. Disembark and then continue on foot to the Talad Noi district, one of Bangkok’s oldest riverside communities, and explore an overflow of local experiences and contrasting street art. It’s also here where you’ll snack on Talad Noi’s famous roast duck. Pay a visit to the local shrines and make a sacrificial offering with worship and burning of joss paper.

Scooter Taxi, Nightingale-Olympic & Chinatown

It’s time to go local and adventure through the bustling streets of Chinatown via scooter taxi. A driver will take you and zip through the streets of Bangkok. It’s an exciting way to explore some of the city’s most vibrant neighborhoods but still remain authentic and see the unchanged spots in the city.

Once you’re back on foot, you’ll follow your guide deep into the mazes and pay a visit to the Nightingale-Olympic Mall, a very strange but fascinating 1960’s department store that seems to be stuck in a different time. Be sure, you'll never see anything like this place again. Further on, visit Wat Kanikapon, built by the famous Madame Faeng, a brothel owner and devout Buddhist. Here, deep in the outskirts of Chinatown, you’ll also have the option to try a old tradition and pay a fortune teller to look into your future.

Street Food in Yaowarat

The Yaowarat district is renowned as one of the world’s best street food destinations, and by far it is the locals’ favorite place to dine: a true food-heaven. Essential parts of the true Bangkok street food experience include sitting on a plastic chair, eating at the vendor’s place, and watching the bustling and chaotic traffic around you. Here, you’ll sit in front of the street kitchens, where all the ingredients associated with your food are cooked right before your eyes. There will be tasty foods like pork buns, chicken satay, flaming morning glory, Thai basil chicken, spicy papaya salad, dim sum, mango sticky rice, and more (may vary with season and availability).

A great adventure, the Taste of Bangkok Food Tour should not be missed out on!

Tripadvisor's Review


Bangkok Food Tour

Best thing we did in Bangkok. It was fabulous. It was amazing going into the back streets and small places that we would never have found on our own. Feeling privileged to get a glimpse of this Bangkok lifestyle otherwise hidden. Our guide had great knowledge of the history and his English was impeccable. We stopped at food vendors along the way and it was all delicious. We would do this again, and thoroughly recommend.
