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.

The guide, Jah was really nice and made it a fun time. The food was all very good. Come very hungry, there is a lot to taste, and pace yourself.

Thee was an awesome guide. Great conversation and a very good group to travel with. We were a smaller group which was nice. They do a great job or curating the venues that they take you to and they will tailor the stops to your group as well again this was easier in a smaller group when towards the end we were all getting pretty full and just wanted something light to finish off the evening. We found this to be a nice change as we had been having a lot of Thai food but the same company also offers options for a Thai experiencing which I look forward to trying on my next visit. Definitely recommend this one!

The food was great and our guide provided us with some interesting information about Bangkok's Chinatown and the different delicacies. My highlight were the pepper soup and the fried oysters omelette.

Fun fun fun! Unless you know a local personally, you'd be utterly lost in Chinatown without a guide like this. Very much worth the extremely economical price. Highly recommended!

only having two days in Bangkok I booked this tour so my daughter and I would get to try some of the tastes that chinatown has to offer. We were meet on time by our guide Joker who was perfect for the job. He took through china town offering different taste sensations at the best places to try them.

Wonderful tour.

I am an airline pilot and was looking for something to do on a 24-hour layover, and this tour was perfect. I have visited Bangkok many times and had seen many of the tourist destinations so I was looking for a unique tour of an area I had not seen before. Joker, our tour guide walked us thru Bangkok's china town explaining the history and guiding us to several unique food tastings. I think we visited 7 or 8 different restaurants and tasted a sampling of a wide variety of the food in china town. By our last stop, everyone in the group was full and could not eat another bite so be sure to bring an appetite.
