This Bangkok food tour stops at approximately eight venues including ten food and drink tastings. At your selected departure time, meet your guide and small group at Saphan Taksin BTS station and set out for the back streets of the Bang Rak district, known for its diverse offerings of local Thai food. Along the way you’ll gain intimate knowledge of the neighborhood’s history, culture and cuisine from your experienced guide.
Taste curry puffs at a street food vendor; sip Thai iced tea or coffee at the Bang Rak Bazaar; bite into a sampling of tropical fruits at Bangkok’s second-oldest wet market; and try Chinese herbal drinks at a local Chinese grocery, located in a traditional shophouse.
You’ll visit a family-run eatery to share plates of fried and roasted chicken noodles topped with egg. Then walk to a traditional Thai sweet shop for a tempting dessert platter. Be sure to save some room for som tam (green papaya salad) at an establishment popular with locals, and don’t be shy about tasting larb (minced meat salad) — a northern Thai staple.
Savor the regional flavors of Thai curry at your last stop, a traditional royal Thai restaurant run by descendants of the royal family, before your tour ends at a nearby BTS station.
Please note: Participating venues and menu items may be substituted on any given day.
