Itinerary

This wild ride to three of Bangkok’s coolest, and tastiest, neighbourhoods kicks off with a departure from the hotel by private Tuk Tuk at 5 pm. Whip through the streets of Bangkok on the way to Bang Rak, a trendy district bordering the Chao Phraya River. Beat the late evening heat with a stop at Baan Somtum or a similar Issan restaurant. Isaan is a region of provinces in north-eastern Thailand known for its flavourful and fiery fare. We’ll sample some of the country’s finest salads, from Som Tum (papaya salad) to Nam Tok (spicy, savoury beef or pork salad). Afterwards, spend time exploring Bang Rak’s streets to sample some more street eats.

Chinatown is the next stop on the list, a chaotic community that is known for its delicious street-side food stalls. The first stop here will be Tep Bar, 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). Afterwards, take to Chinatown’s streets to sample more tasty treats.

The final destination of the night, Asiatique The Riverfront, is across the city so sit back and enjoy the ride through the city’s dazzling lights. Hundreds of pop-up tents house everything from antiques and t-shirts, to grilled fish, desserts and drinks. Sample some food and drink while winding through the maze of stalls. At the back of the market are a number of open-air bars and stages that often have local musicians playing. The trip will end around 8 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.
