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.

Besides the hustle of the streets, the stand-up joints, tables in the street and more formal sit-down restaurants we got to see the variety of condiments used in making curry paste, visited a sweets business that was created by a a former chef in the Thai royal court, how coffee is made in the streets of Bangkok and drank a very, very good coffee from a plastic bag!... Bella, our guide, and Pat, her aide in training, are obviously at home navigating this multicultural neighborhood. They provided a very enjoyable and unique experience. Some of the places we visited would be very hard if not impossible to find otherwise. This is a brief but very good introduction to the sights, colors, smells and the art of eating in Bangkok.

Katy was a great tour guide. She took our group to restaurants that were located in some of the back alleys of Bang Rak. We tried traditional Thai and Chinese dishes, and received education on the background of the many different cultures, people and food that together, define this vibrant city.

Katy is a teacher by profession, so it stands to reason that we started the tour with some learning goals and objectives. Throughout the tour, Katy would consistently refer back to them as she discussed the history surrounding the areas we were in, and the food we were eating. Then, at the end of the evening, we debriefed as a group, and Katy summarized the tour, and circled back to our initial goals and objectives. Overall, it was a great evening with listening to Katy, and making some new friends along the way. Thank you again for a truly enjoyable evening.

Greatly enjoyed this tour. It was a lot of food and we greatly enjoyed trying all the food. The walk wasn't an issue - it helped to walk some of the food down to eat more and see the city up close. Bella, our tour guide was awesome. She was knowledgeable, funny, and good at her job. It was great that she took pictures and sent them to us which was a very nice touch.We had a great group which made the tour even better. I recommend this tour and Bella!

We had been in Bangkok for a few days before we went on this trip and were leaving for other parts of Thailand the next day. The tour was amazing and set us up to understand Thai food better and know how to eat Thai food, what types of food items we might light to eat more of, and the history of various foods in Thailand. The guide was great, our group were strangers before but not after the tour, and the local food purveyors were wonderful! Would highly recommend this trip to anyone!!

We had a great morning with our guide, Katy. We sampled some street food, some restaurant food and had some experiences truly eating like a native! Katy was knowledgeable about the food, the history of the area and the restaurants. We discovered some small eateries of Bangkok that we would never have found on our own and ate some truly delicious and interesting food. Katy promised that, during our 3 1/2 hour tour, we would learn about Bag Rak, learn about some food and be full! She scored a 3/3!
