Hop into one of Thailand’s most iconic modes of transport, the Tuk Tuk, and ride through some of Bangkok’s coolest, and tastiest, neighbourhoods. We’ll kick off with a departure from your hotel by private Tuk Tuk at 5 pm. Whip through the streets of Bangkok on the way to Soi Convent in the Silom area, to sample a few popular local dishes and street side snacks.
After a short exploration here, it’s time to jump back in the Tuk Tuk’s for a quick ride to Bangrak, a trendy district just a short distance from the Chao Phraya River. Spend some time exploring the Bangrak Bazaar and the surrounding streets as your guide introduces you to some more tasty treats.
Chinatown is the next stop on the list, a chaotic community that is well known for its delicious street-side food stalls. The first stop here will be exploring Chinatown’s Yaowarat Road, a highlight of the city famed for the spectacular array of street food hawkers. Finally, we’ll diverge onto Chinatown’s Soi Nana and Maitri Chit Road, home to an eclectic mix of cafes and hip bars. We’ll explore some more unique flavours and street food treats throughout Chinatown before ending the journey with a couple of options.
Families with children may prefer to go and sample some delicious dessert stalls offering freshly made soy milk and sweet dumplings, while adult groups may wish to pay a visit to Tep Bar (at their own expense). Tep Bar offers a trendy hangout paying homage to all things Thai. They have Thai xylophones and cymbals, Thai tapas and cocktails with names borne from ancient Thai lore. Dine on tapas which is served a-la-carte – we recommend the moo sarong (pork balls wrapped in yellow noodle and fried) and the Khao Kriab wow (rice cracker served with chilli paste). For friskier travellers, try a shot of Ya Dong (Thai moonshine infused with herbs).
The trip will end around 9 pm, but you have the option to hang around. Should you choose to stay later, your guide can give you advice and directions on how to return to the hotel.
