Tour takes place rain or shine
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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.

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.
