Why this experience?

Rated a Bangkok's top activity by TripAdvisor's users, Best Eats Midnight Food Tour by Tuk Tuk combines travelers' favorite things to do in Bangkok – riding a Tuk Tuk and eating Thai food. When in Bangkok, do as the Bangkokians do – we eat round-the-clock! So, join us at Bangkokian's favorite local restaurants opened at night and enjoy yummy Thai food including Bangkok's best Pad Thai. Besides the food, we will feed you an insight on Thai food and Thai culture. This will be the most fun local dining night you will ever experience in Bangkok.

The restaurants are multi-generation-old – this says a lot why they are favorites for Thai foodies. They are family-run, small and intimate. One has an outdoor kitchen on a street, you can see woks blazing and the cooks working magic on your dish! The restaurants are located in Bangkok's Old City where, on the Tuk Tuk, you can enjoy colorful street lives and beautiful historical buildings.

You may think of this experience as a long dinner. But never worry about being too full to eat, sightseeing between food stops will allow you time to digest. We will stroll a lively flower market, have a cold beer at a rooftop riverside bar with a stunning view, and visit a famous temple, so empty you can almost call it your own. It's time to try an experience unknown to average travelers to Bangkok!

Highlights

  • Night Tuk tuk ride in Bangkok

    Explore Bangkok's Old City by Tuk Tuk

    Riding a Tuk Tuk is fun. And riding one at night is even better because the streets are empty and the air is cooler. Our Tuk Tuk have clear-plastic roofs, you can see the sky.

    We will cruise past Bangkok's Old City's historical attractions, illuminated and pretty against the dark sky. We will see back streets of Bangkok packed with actions. You will see, hear, and smell Bangkok, the city will never be more real to you than this.

  • Pad tai

    Local food at the restaurants that local diners love

    From Northeastern Thai regional dishes to the best Pad Thai in Bangkok, needless to say how delicious the food will be. When you see people queueing up in front of the restaurants, you will know. So, be ready to rub your shoulders with local diners.

  • Fiery frying Kuay tiaw kua gai

    Have a blast at a blaze

    At the chicken fried noodle restaurant, we will go into the kitchen set in an alley to see how the dish is made. Get your camera ready for the moment the wok is on fire. The blaze lasts only a few seconds. Do not miss it.

  • Bangkok Temple at night

    Visit a crowd-free famous temple

    This temple, crowded by tourists during the day, is empty at night. Strolling on the temple's ground, peaceful and quiet, and seeing the illuminated pagodas is a magical experience.

  • Bangkok Pagoda at night by Chao phaya river

    Beer with 'the' view

    Chill out with a chilled beer or a mock-tail at our secret rooftop bar and take in one of Bangkok's most exceptional view – the illuminated Wat Arun.

  • Flower market at night in Bangkok

    Explore the colorful flower and produce market packed with actions

    The market opens 24 hours but it's most active at night. Talk through the bustling market. See the explosions of colors. And learn how certain flowers are important to Buddhist devotees.

Itinerary

Your evening Tuk Tuk food journey begins at Sam Yan MRT subway station where we meet. A short ride brings you to the first stop, a Northeastern Thai restaurant. We will share famous dishes from the region like spicy raw papaya salad, deep-fried crispy catfish meat with spicy sauce, spicy pork salad, and spicy pork meat balls. Our next stop is chicken crispy noodle, with a choice of runny or well-cooked eggs.

Then we will take a digestion break by visiting the flower market where you might have small snacks, and the temple. The bar follows. Our last stop is Bangkok's best Pad Thai. We will skip the long queue and go right in. The tour finishes by or close to the Cinderella’s time with the Tuk Tuk dropping you off at your hotel.

*The itinerary can be changed due to unexpected circumstances. We will do our best to notify you if any changes occur.

    What a brilliant night we had on the Bangkok Midnight food tour by tuk tuk. Such well planned itinerary and a great and exciting way to get from place to place. We visited 3 restaurants along the way as well as tasting some fruit from the local market and dessert from a street food vendor. The tour also offers a cultural experience to see the 24 hour flower market and the temples at night which was a lovely surprise. Our guide Yiwah was great fun! The rooftop bar was a wow moment at the end of the tour. Getting around by tuk tuk was so fun and showed Bangkok in a different light. It was also great to get dropped off at the hotel at the end of the night. We really were full but the end of the evening which starts at 7pm and lasts until around midnight. Highlight of our Bangkok experience.

    In any new city I visit, one of the first things I like to do is go on a food tour. It’s a great way to learn the local food scene and usually some history and culture along the way. This was one of the best I’ve ever been on! First of all, the logistics ran so smoothly with Ron, our guide, making sure every dish arrived on time and the tuk-tuk was there to meet us just as we were walking out of each place. The tour itself was incredible! Everything was so authentic but at the same time gave us a sense that we were getting the best version of each dish. The Thai food we had been eating until now paled in comparison to what we had on the tour. I love how they also incorporated some non-food sites as well - a trip to the flower market and the Temple were such nice touches. I’ve been on these tours enough to know - the guide really makes or breaks the experience and Ron was amazing. Funny and laid back and personable but also unbelievably knowledgeable, not just sticking to the prewritten script. There wasn’t a single question he didn’t know an in-depth answer to but somehow also knew how to keep things brief and interesting. I feel like I got an entire Thai education in one night! Unlike other tours with tiny samples of the food, the portions here are huge so come hungry. All in all a perfect first night for me and my husband in Bangkok.

    With our western upbringing we were a little nervous about experiencing street food - how safe is it? This trip allayed any fears and prejudices we may have had. Our guide, Chanya, was amazing, friendly and informative, explaining the history behind all the food we were to sample and the food was sublime. Each stop bough new delights and amazing tastes and textures. An important word of warning don’t eat anything before this trip, there is plenty of food to sate even the largest appetite. It’s not just food on the trip, although when we did the trip we had to miss out the flower market due to what can only be described as a down pour of biblical proportions – ponchos were provided to protect us from the worse of the rain. Riding on the tuk-tuk was fun and the return to the hotel at the end was a bonus as the booking description said it was specified hotels only and our hotel was a bit out of the way. If you want to experience the best of Thai cuisine then this tout is a absolute must, it’s converted us to the delights of street food.

    I almost didn't book this tour since it is quite expensive for a family of four. I went on a friend's recommendation and it was worth every Bhatt! We toured with our 15 and 12 year old. The booking online is effortless and the follow up email with directions were clear and easy to follow. Tried out so many meals and places I would never have ventured to or had the time to visit (some locations have an excessive wait time that is taken care of with the tour). Wonderful night views of the city and it included a visit to the flower market! The kids just loved the tuktuk! A must do for adventurous eaters 😊 our guide Mod was fantastic! A wonderful host for the evening! Recommend the kids have a restful afternoon as the tour is long. I do not recommend this if your kids are picky eaters as it will be a wasted effort.

    Must-do food tour during your stay!!

    We did this tuk tuk food tour as a family and we highly recommend it. Our guide Chanya was super friendly and took real good care of us. The best part about this tour is that you go around to the best food joints in BKK on tuk tuk. Also, places that have long queues you get an express entry as part of the tour. For example, you get to visit Thip Samai which is the home of the best Pad Thai (also right next to Ran Jay Fai's joint, from Netlfix Street Food Documentary!). It's a 4 hour tour and you get to eat almost 11 to 12 foods.

    The entire experience was perfect, right from online bookings to the directions of the meeting point, everything went on smoothly. Our guide was Nokk and her positive energy was contagious. She was so considerate of everyone's requirements and shes such an efficient multi-tasker. She noted down likes / dislikes , cooking preparations , and portion sizes. She then coordinated with all the restaurant staff, thereby ensuring we did not waste anytime waiting. Most places we had visited already had piping hot food plated for us on arrival.

    The thing i liked most about this tour was the comprehensive and efficient itinerary. We covered every major type of dish as we hopped from spot to spot by Tuk Tuk. From Tom Sak to Mango Sticky rice, Phad thai to Kway Teow, The aromatic food was bursting with flavor and was quite hygienic i must add. Nokk patiently explained the socio-cultural relevance of each dish and how it was prepared. What makes it even better is how well historic and cultural aspects of Thailand's heritage was integrated into the trip during the visit to the flower market and temple of the reclining Buddha. Further, walking within each area helped build up an appetite again, before moving on to the next food spot.

    The tuk tuk drivers deserve a special mention here as they were all so hospitable, yet so entertaining. We we promptly dropped to our Hotel lobby after our last meal. The tour concluded at around 12.30 - 1 am ( a good 1 hour more than scheduled), but that happens when you're busy making new friends and creating memories thanks to Bangkok food tours!
