Meet your guide in the evening at a central location in Bangkok, and then hop into a tuk-tuk — an iconic form of local transportation in Thailand — and travel a few minutes to Chinatown to begin your walking tour. Please note, depending on availability, you may ride in a local bus instead of the tuk-tuk.
Follow your guide along from sleepy Talad Noi with its charming local life via backroad alleys and , a major boulevard that transforms at night into a sea of street stalls forming a large, informal food bazaar. In addition to the excellent street food, Chinatown is also home to fine Chinese restaurants. Visit 8-10 different food spots where you'll try a variety of dishes and learn about the inspiration and ingredients behind each. Sample spicy snacks, typical dinner items and sweet desserts, and chat with other food lovers that you encounter.
As you walk along both crowded streets and quiet lanes, your guide points out locations from various film sets, temples hidden down narrow alleyways and other only-in-Thailand sights. Discover places that you might never find on your own, and ask your guide any questions you have about the things you come across.
Expect to walk less than 2.5 miles (4 km) at a leisurely pace with plenty of stops for photo ops and food. Alcoholic drinks and other beverages are not included but can be purchased at most locations. At the end of the tour, you can remain in Chinatown or continue into the night, on your own.
