I went with the 9 hour biketour, which was a good choice! Nice group of people, yummy lunch and Suzy was the best guide ever. She told us interesting things and showed us some really nice spots. My only remark is to really pay attention when you get the bike. It's important that it fits you, because you do have... More

We did the 3 hour tour in the morning. The tour was nice and it took us to places you would otherwise not go, but are very nice to see. The local markets are especially nice. The guides were very nice and their English was good. The bikes we had weren't the newest, but were very good maintained and were... More

We did the 5 hour bike tour today and found it to be great experience. Between bike riding and boating we saw parts of Bangkok you would normally never get to see. The guides were great ("Smile" and Ginny) and the group never felt unsafe, although some of the narrow streets and paths needed your full concentration. The meal was... More

This tour is great if you want to get some of the local flavour of Bangkok. Our guide, "Tammy," was amazing. She was great! The only thing that I thought was strange was that I was the only non-Dutch person. I am traveling alone so I thought it was a bit difficult because everyone was speaking Dutch, but everyone turned... More

We booked the 3 hour morning bike tour in Bangkok. We have gone on bike tours in many countries, and this was among the best. Guides Peckkie and Mr. New York were excellent: friendly, knowledgeable and experienced with excellent English skills. The ride includes some busy streets and very narrow alleys so you should be fairly comfortable on a bicycle.... More

I worked during the day in Bangkok so I decided to take a night bike tour. It was so cool. We went through a lot of random neighborhoods that I would never have imagine stumbling across. Bobby was really great and helped us access some delicious food from street vendors that I probably would have been to shy to try... More

When in Bangkok for either short vacation or for business, a nice way to do something different is to take one of the tours offered by the company CO VAN KESSEL; Experience and helpful staff (thanks Natalia and York).

Staying in Chinatown / Yaowarat

Neighbourhood Profile
Chinatown / Yaowarat
Better known as 'Yaowarat' among locals, Chinatown is Bangkok's bustling district that never sleeps. During the day, the main street and its small alleyways are filled with a vibrant mix of colours, scents and flavours coming from the roadside restaurants and all-day markets. The real action, however, happens after sunset. Surrounded by neon lights, Thais and tourists alike flock here around dinnertime to feast on some of the best street food in town. Escape the chaos by venturing a little further from the main road and discover hidden shrines, friendly locals and daily life in its purest form.
