About your Bangkok tour

Kicking off with a hair-raising klong boat ride from Siam pier to a hidden old town district rarely visited by Westerners…..get set for the best Bangkok food tour in town.

Wander through this peaceful laid-back neighbourhood where you're unlikely to see another traveler and tackle the century old food market that's been feeding locals in the know since 1899.

Slurp on silky udon noodles smothered in rich beef stew, savour freshwater fish curry steamed in banana leaves, chow down on grilled Thai sausage wrapped rarities and gorge on ten other palette teasing things you'll never find alone.

Why this tour is awesome

Don't know where to eat in Bangkok? Join our Bangkok food tour and your taste buds won't regret it. Once the entertainment hub of the capital, this area is still the only place in the city where women are trained in the art of traditional Thai dance and you'll see the remnants of Bangkok's oldest silent cinema. It's also one of the best places in the capital to eat.

Full on your preferred date? How about our evening Bangkok food tour?
