Bangkok Bites & Bike Tour
Bangkok is often dubbed a food capital of the world. Every corner is packed with restaurants, local eateries, and of course, Bangkok’s famous street food stalls. The best way to learn Thai gastronomic culture is to taste various styles of Thai dish while wander into streets and alleys to see Bangkok’s culinary environs.

What people say about this tour
This is basically a combination of a food morning walk followed in the afternoon by a bike ride with Follow Me. The_stoddarts, TripAdvisor |
The morning is a walking tour around the area of Bangrak visiting five different local restaurants (for me, these were ones that I have walked past many times and so it was great to actually be taken through some of their food options). There were at least two tasting (some quite large portions) at each restaurant together with two snacks bought along the way to try. The walking pace is gentle (particularly given we were walking in around 36 degrees) and if you have any dietary requirements (eg: I am a vegetarian), then the food choices were adapted to suit. We had curries, noodles, custard buns and finished all this with superb coconut sorbet.
The afternoon is a bike tour, using bikes from Follow Me, which are well maintained and gives you the opportunity to sample a couple of Bangkok’s roads together with a lot of back street cycling pasting through narrow alleys, through a flower market and part of Chinatown.
A highly recommended day trip.
Private Tour Option
The itinerary of the Bangkok Bites & Bike Tour is identical to that of the Join-in one. However, in the private option, it will be more exclusive (just you and the guide )and the tour starting time is more flexible. On this private tour, you can decide your own starting time ranging from 10.30 am – 2.30 pm. We can’t start the tour later than 2.30 pm as our partner restaurants close at dinner time.
