About your Bangkok tour

Don’t leave the fate of your taste buds to chance… go straight for Bangkok’s culinary jugular on our chef-designed food tour of Bangkok.

Trust us when we say there's more to Bangkok's food scene than pad Thai and green curry along Khao San Road. Hop on our daily Bangkok street food tour to explore the city's maze of alleys and taste hidden eats you'd simply never find alone.

Highlights include lemongrass infused mussels, rich peanut satay with grilled coconut chicken and ajat relish, the finest Thai curry in the city and over a dozen more lip-smackingly good things at some of the best places to eat in Bangkok.

Our tour isn't just about the food though - it's a fascinating look at the people and history behind Bangkok's cuisine.

Kicking off as the afternoon cools, eat your way through the labyrinth of backstreets on the best Bangkok Chinatown food tour, ending on a sugary high along the main strip of Yaowarat Road in all its neon glory.
