What You Can Expect

Bangkok Food Tour

Bang Rak District Bangkok Food Tour.
© Viator Inc.

This Bangkok food tour stops at approximately eight venues including 15 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.

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!

Tamie was GREAT fun! Talented, informative, with a sense of humor to make the trip extra fun. Lots of food. She also took a lot of photos and promised to send them to us so that we don't have to try to take a selfie while trying to eat our street food. She was also good about washing our hands with wipes and purrel-ing. Recommend.

I wish we would have done this excursion earlier in our trip. My daughter and I struggled a bit at the beginning of our trip with knowing where to eat and what to eat. Our guide Tammie showed us a great time! We went to a combination of street vendors and sit-down restaurants, trying a combination of sweet and savory foods. Tammie gave us a lot of historical and cultural information, and she was really sweet and attentive to my 10 year old daughter's picky taste buds.

This tour was great and you will leave sleepy and full! Bella was an incredible tour guide she went into detail about the dishes we were eating, showed us the ingredients for curry, and was overall just great company! This was the highlight of our entire 2 week trip!
