Why this experience?

This experience will introduce you to Bangkok's dining scenes totally unknown to average travelers! It takes you way off the beaten path across the Chao Phraya River to Thonburi and Bangkok's Old City's best night food locations. You will dine on a street like a local and enjoy a rare dish which was a Thai king's favorite food. We will visit a hundred-year-old food market, an indoor floating market, and Bangrak Market to sample the best family recipes passed down through generations. Transportation for this tour is provided by Tuk Tuk. Zigzagging through Bangkok's traffic and backstreets on a Tuk Tuk is a lot of fun and is a great way to experience real street life.

Not only will we feed you food, we will feed you Thai culture and traditions as we sightsee along the way. You will experience charming ways of life of Thonburi, the short-lived capital of Thailand before Bangkok was founded, visit a beautiful temple with UNESCO Asia-Pacific Award for Cultural Heritage Conservation, and fall in love with the views as we cruise the Chao Phraya river on a shuttle boat. The night ends on a high note at our secret rooftop bar with river views. We promise you this is one of the best ways to spend an evening in Bangkok. Do not wait. Book now!

These restaurants and food stalls are known among local foodies to be the best Mom & Pop diners.
