Our guide really made this tour for us. We had over 3 hours walking through such an interesting area of Bangkok, with a variety of different cultural influences.
This is different style of tour.
Exciting and interesting tour to see real lifestyle of Bangkok inhabitant.
You will see the way of live, culture, houses and talk to ordinary Bangkok people. The guide - Miss Jib - was so knowledgable on the history and gave usefull tips about seeing Bangkok
This walking tour was a wonderful way to see the back streets of Bangkok. Our guide "Esso" was quite easy to listen to and knew what he was talking about, offering snippets of local information and tastes of street food. If you want to get away from the tourist areas this is well worth considering.
Throughly enjoyed this tour,we were met by our tour guide Jib and the owner of expique at the meeting spot. Jib was a wealth of information on the history of these areas where the Chinese,Muslims,Porteguese and Catholics live together harmoniously. Walked many back lanes to see how the people of these areas live,came across many friendly locals happy to say hello and saw inside many homes where they were cheering and having a great time watching Muay Thai fights. This is the real bangkok that many tourists do not get to see. As we went on a Sunday not all the things we were to experience were open but Iam sure if you went on a weekday you would not have a problem. The local street food we tried consisted of various sweet treats which were yummy but more variety of foods would of been better. Would highly recommend this tour for anyone,easy pace walking and Jib our guide was great.
Walked thru lots of back allyways; visited a few interesting candy and snack shops after taking a boat across the river. Interesting stop at a coffeeshop/bakery -good drink and snacks. Thought we'd see more of life along the river when we actually spent more time a few blocks back from the river in allyways; so very little in terms of interesting views. I visited Bangkok several times so it was interesting to see a side of the city I haven't seen, but wouldn't recommend if you're a new visitor; many more interesting things to see and do.
