What You Can Expect

Flavors of Bangkok: Small-Group Chinatown Evening Food Tour

Small-Group Chinatown Evening Food Tour

Your food tour of Bangkok’s Chinatown begins when you meet your guide at Hua Lamphong, located at the border of one of the world’s largest Chinatowns. This neighborhood has been a hub of the Thai-Chinese community for more than two centuries. Your guide provides a brief history of the neighborhood as you set out on foot through the dense tangle of alleys and streets, which are jam-packed with markets, street vendors, restaurants and shops of all sizes.

With your guide in the lead, you can absorb the multitudes of scents, sights and flavors as you stop frequently to sample a range of typical and specialty dishes. Learn about the intricacies of dim sum in Thailand, sink your teeth into savory Chinese dumplings, and sample a plate of richly flavored peppered pork noodles. Visit the top-ranked roast-pork and rice restaurant in Bangkok, and slurp a refreshing coconut noodle drink in a renowned shophouse that is frequented by the Thai royal family.

Your guide points out neighborhood mainstays such as Chinatown’s most famous durian vendor. Find out how to select the best fruit, and if you’re adventurous, try the notoriously smelly durian fruit. Some people love the strong sweet flavor while others find its potent scent nauseating.

Stop into a tea shop that carries a variety of teas, including the most expensive tea in Bangkok. Watch a short demonstration of the preparation and service of Chinese tea. Then have a dessert of tasty Chinese doughnuts and try other sweets along Chinatown’s main road. By the end of your tour, you can expect to have eaten the equivalent of a satisfying meal.

Your tour ends at a central location, within easy reach of the BTS Station and other transportation. Your guide can assist you with directions to your next destination.

Please note: On any given day, participating venues and menu items may be substituted due to seasonal and/or unexpected circumstances.

Best part of my Bangkok trip. I'm a vegetarian and booked it but they called and said they couldn't accommodate and too late to cancel so I went anyway. Guide (Pax?) Was fabulous and accommodated very well...being a veggie was no problem. Great lights and sites in Chinatown!

Our tour guide Tamie was amazing. It was like going out with an old friend. She was able to answer all of our questions as her English is very good. Tamie also gave us a lot of information about the area and the types of food we were trying along with the history. We loved this tour

I enjoyed Bella's tour-history, photos, movies,food, i had a great time talking with her. We had pork, dim sum, omelet, duck, and desserts. It was a great time and there's so much to see. If you have more time walk around.

This tour was fun. Bella provided a good mix of history and culture as well as filling us up with food. We got to explore Chinatown in a way that we would not have been able to do on our own. The food we had was delicious from start to finish. Special mention for the pork pepper noodle soup and the pork neck and chili salad. Yum!

My husband I booked the walking tour of Chinatown the night before and when we arrived turns out we were the only ones that booked this particular tour so we had a private tour with Bella! Our guide was lovely and funny with great knowledge of the area. Most of the places we visited only had Thai menus which we would have usually walked past cause we wouldn't know how to order, but we were so glad to have Bella show us the way. She was able to cater to our food requirements no seafood and still pushed our boundaries of what we would usually pick. I cannot recommend this enough!

An excellent way to see Bangkok's wonderful Chinatown. The experience, the sights, the smells and the food made it well worthwhile but for me, the icing on the cake was our guide. Bella went over and above the call of duty for us. She could not possibly have done any more. Thank you and well done Bella.

Fantastic! Enjoyable experience. Wonderful tour guide who is full of knowledge, speaks great English Studied in Chicago and goes out of his way to meet everyone's needs. If you enjoy walking sign up now. If you're either can't or don't want to walk then don't waste your money. If you're willing to walk and enjoy a variety of foods and restaurants then buy this tour asap. Great night.

Our tour guide was amazing. He really tried to balance the various needs of all those on the tour, 7 of us. We had pork, chicken, oysters, rice, sticky rice and mango, tea, pastries and a hot ginger drink to end the night. If you're not willing or able to walk then skip this tour. But if you really want to get to know Chinatown by night join in the fun. Make sure you are hungry and don't be afraid to tell the tour guide what you will or will not eat. He's really good about meeting your needs but also about trying to get you to try new things. I ate tofu and I've rarely eaten it. Great night. It rained and he was so kind that he even went and bought rain gear for us. He's a chef by training so he knows his stuff. Don't miss this fun night out.
