What You Can Expect

Bangkok by Night: Private Food, Drink and Shopping Tour

Bangkok by Night: Private Food, Drink and Shopping Tour

Your evening starts when your guide meets you at your hotel in the early evening. Take public transportation to downtown and walk a few minutes to reach Sofitel So Bangkok, a luxury hotel designed by renowned French fashion designer Christian Lacroix.

Inside Sofitel So Bangkok, take a table in the chic Park Society Bar. Sip a cocktail and hear from your guide about Bangkok’s cuisine and nightlife. Then head to your next destination to enjoy a meal that features a variety of delicious Thai dishes. Choose to have dinner at either a local street food eatery where some of the city’s best food offerings are served up in unassuming surroundings, or at Somtum Der, a popular restaurant that offers authentic cuisine in a colorful air-conditioned space. Your guide can explain the dishes and assist with ordering, facilitating an authentic experience of Thailand's renowned cuisine.

Afterward, hop aboard the Skytrain (BTS), Bangkok’s efficient and air-conditioned elevated rail transport, and zip over to the Chao Phraya River. Transfer to a ferry for a 10-minute ride that provides amazing views of twinkling temples and riverboats on the riverside.

Disembark at Asiatique, a popular night market with more than 1,500 vendors that sell clothing, jewelry, electronics, handicrafts and more. This open-air shopping bazaar stretches along a 985-foot (300-meter) long boardwalk on the river.

After you get oriented at Asiatique, your guide says farewell to end your 5-hour tour. Enjoy shopping or taking in a show at your leisure, then make your own way back to your hotel. Transportation options are widely available from Asiatique.

Great information about getting around the city, plus amazing food, great conversation with our guide, and an unmatched view to end the evening. Definitely worth the cost for an introduction to Bangkok!

My daughter 22 and I signed up for this tour the first night we were in Bangkok and it was worth it. The guide, Saran, really showed us Bangkok - how to use the subways/skytrains, different areas for nightlife, how to pick street food and shopping. He was able to answer every question asked and provided a lot of info that was outside of what you get in a travel book. This was definitley the right thing to do to put my daughter at ease for her first time outside the US. It is important to contact the company for the meeting time because the meeting time was different than Viator advertised. I was initially put off by this because I thought we were losing an hour of the tour. This was a foolish thought. With traffic density, if we had started an hour earlier, we would have spent an hour on crowded subways and sitting in traffic which would have taken away from the experience. Starting at 6pm instead of 5pm was perfect. Everything was fun and new and exciting and at the perfect pace.

Guide was great although we told her we did not like really spicy food and the food was too spicy for us to eat.

This was a very fast paced tour and even though it was private we did not feel we got to take the time to really enjoy Bangkok for what it was. The tour overall was a great concept and met expectations but for the price we were disappointed it did not exceed.
