Our Story

BANGKOK FOOD TOURS was launched in early 2011 thanks to our passion in food and traveling. Thai to the roots with deep knowledge in local culture and cuisine, we are a warm and generous host who are eager to guide you through culinary journeys, help you explore Thai culture, and connect you to the locals.

Our mission is not only to introduce Thai local flavors to the world, but also to help foreign visitors “eat like Thais do.” Besides filling your stomach with delicious dishes, we feed you with fun history, rich culture, and story insights of the neighborhoods we visit, as the locals themselves may share.

As the first and the only 100% local company that offers authentic food tours in the entire Thailand, Bangkok Food Tours has quickly gained reputation for providing visitors with creative ways to explore Bangkok and beyond like locals. We have been seen on and recognized by global media like CNNgo, Travel+Leisure, Lonely Planet, and many more.

Bon appétit,
Bangkok Food Tours Team
