Read what other Viator.com travelers think about the Bangkok Chinatown and Night Markets Small-Group Tour including Dinner. What they loved, what they liked and what they think could be improved, it's all here to help you make the most of your next trip.
Dinner in Chinatown was different but lovely. I found the flower markets a bit boring, there were a lot of flowers but the variety was limited.
It's a good tour to get around to areas that aren't necessarily touristy places. Having a local guide to show you the way was great - and she introduced me to new street foods I was unaware of. Alot of walking [not recommended for elderly or people that can't walk / stand for about 5 hours]
We had the same guide as the tuk tuk tour, with only three of us this time. Again the English language barrier was a bit of a problem.
This too was a very interesting tour, and when the rain hit in a big way, our guide raced off to the local 7/11 to buy my wife and I plastic raincoats. She refused to let us pay her for them.
Again, a temple or two, one being very impressive with its massive grounds. We walked through some historic market areas, and at nightfall through the flower market. It is just massive, makes the Amsterdam flower market look like a miniature. It is in the form mainly of a street market but goes for many blocks.
We then finished up having a Chinese dinner with our guide. Along with the tuk tuk tour it gave us a very good view of older Bangkok and was well worthwhile.
Our guide was very enthusiastic and we had a great time learning about China and it's history.

The tour guide was very professional and very friendly. It was a great experience
This tour was well run and very informative.We saw a lot of things tourists would not see on their own. Even though the weather was against us the guide bought ponchos and we had a great time. Recommended.
If going on a Tuk Tuk tour this tour is wasted. A lot of walking involved. Dinner was good where we got to know the "local" cuisine. Tour guide VERY professional and knowledgeable.
Not perfectly organized:
1. Started late.
2.The meeting point was neither close to the tour area nor to our hotels ( for the both participants of the tour) and we ended up crossing the traffic of China Town a few times because of that reason.The tour itself was a little boring. We were walking through similar crowded streets in Chinatown. The problem that its hard to find general overview tour in Bangkok city.
The tour was with local nice lady who wanted to tell us a lot about her city. We received valuable new information about Bangkok and its population.
In my opinion this tour is more suited to the young and very keen walker. The Temple was excellent, but China town market was repetitive and you walk through so quick you do not actually get time to look at individual stalls if you are interested in buying anything. We actually stopped the tour after China town and caught a taxi back to the hotel. Tour guide Nop was very informative and friendly.

Is a little bit of a trek but good fun. itinerary can very depending in group. We also visited Chinese temple, flower market and Chinese coffee shop. Dinner was good too.
There is shopping everywhere. You really don't need a guide for this adventure.
Where do I start? We had to travel to the main railway station to be pick up by our guide, who I must say was a great young fellow. But unfortunately for him, he has a pitiful tour. No fault of his though. Two and a half hours later, we started the tour at Chinatown, 300 meters from our motel. We then walked to a temple, which was shut for renovations. Forty-five minutes wasted out of the 6.5 hr tour. I think about 1 hr was good and that was the flower market our guide took us to after tea. I think he felt bad about how the day went, through no fault of his. I would think long and hard before booking another insipid tour in Bangkok.
